A. Yes, you can easily solve this issue at home. HP designs its printer in a way that it reduces power consumption when the printer is inactive. The Auto Power Off option is the reason your printer might be turning off on its own. If your printer is idle for about 2 hours or so, it turns off automatically. You can change the energy consumption setting from the control panel. You can also disconnect and reconnect the power and USB cable and turn the machine on. The firmware of the printer should be updated. If you still experience the same problem then try plugging the printer into a different electrical outlet and make sure that it is plugged directly. If the electrical disturbance is caused by any other devices that you are using then shift them to other electricity points.

Q. My printer is displaying Alignment Failed error message on the screen. Does this have anything to do with the new hp DeskJet 2542 ink cartridges? How do I print now?
A. You can begin by resetting the printer. When the printer is on and silent, disconnect the power and USB cords. Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet. Wait for about a minute and reconnect the cords. Turn the printer on. If the message reappears then take a printout of the alignment page and evaluate it. This page will show if any ink cartridge requires replacement. If that is the case then replace with new hp DeskJet 2542 ink cartridges. You should also clean the printhead of the printer and cartridge contacts and make sure that the hp DeskJet 2542 ink cartridges that you have installed have been installed correctly. Doing so will solve the error and you will be able to print.
