    Business Inkjet 2230 - crash during alignment

    Bit unusual I know but I've got an old HP Business Inkjet 2230 that insists on doing an automatic printhead alignment, manages to do the Cyan line, tries to interpret it and then fails.

    I'm guessing there's a sensor or similar that's failed as there's no LED light that you might normally get.

    Anyone else seen this behaviour and got any ideas?

    I was kinda wondering that... Only problem is, I've never used the 2230 before so I've no idea what "working" models should do compared to this one. Luckily there's another one just like it at school so I'll do a comparison there.

    I think you might be right though...

    None of my original 2230s are still in operation - fixing one of these is like mending a win98 machine

    (A nice exercise to see if you can still do it but should you really be doing it _
