My Deskjet 5650 is like that, but removing and re-inserting the same 
cartridges doesn't generate the alignment page on mine. At least one 
cartridge has to be different from the ones that generated the last 
alignment. With my Officejet, the printer just nags me to "Press Enter 
to align cartridges" until I do it, but that too is only after replacing 
a cartridge.

The problem still might not be the printer itself, but one of the 
cartridges or even a dirty contact or two. It would be worth a shot to 
remove each cartridge and clean the contacts on both the cartridge and 
the printer.
