No matter how eloquent and comprehensive their documents may be, these issues simply don't come up with cheaper printers who don't try to do your laundry and and dishes for you.

In a perfect world maybe. This is my third HP Printer. NEVER AGAIN. Poor product,works great first 6 months, after that it's TRASH. They are cheap enough to just replace them but I think pollution and it breaks my heart. Do you remember when we called the repairman for TV, vacuums, and such? Now it's just not worth it.Trash it and replace it. My 8500 looks new, yet it won't stop giving error messages, jamming paper, and all sorts of other issues. Piece of CRAP .

I guess I can throw my printer hp 8500 A Plus in the trash as well! Following the error message "alignment failed" I went through all the steps in the YouTube fix idea but alignment failed consistently! Also, the pages printed only black and yellow although the supply levels show all four colors. What is that all about?

As an IT manager in the late 90 and early 2K, I was a HP Evangelist. I loved HP products because they were well built, even if HP's software and drivers were a nightmare. Six years ago, new company, I brought in all HP workstations, network/local printers, color laserjet, and this network fax unit. Now, I have replaced every printer with Konica Minolta, and the fax is next. What a shame...HP used to be solid.

Printers with separate (and VERY $$ EXPENSIVE $$) INK TANK print head(s) this is a problematic design, especially for inkjet cartridge refilling. The officejet D-series was the subject of class action lawsuits due to the print heads clogging due to drying of pigmented ink making the print heads useless. Even these instructions are rather complicated. You are better off getting a printer w/o ink-tank print heads. There ARE printers with the 4 inkjet cartridge systems w/o separate printer heads. Most likely NOT hp brand though. Vote with your $$ and brand choice..
