Use Your Computer to Print a Nozzle Check Pattern

The nozzle check function allows you to check whether the print head is working properly by printing a nozzle check pattern. Print the pattern if printing becomes faint, or if a specific color fails to print.

The procedure for printing a nozzle check pattern is as follows:

Nozzle Check

  1. Select Test Print from the pop-up menu on the Canon IJ Printer Utility

  2. Click the Nozzle Check icon

    The confirmation message appears.
    Click to display the items that you need to check before printing the nozzle check pattern.

  3. Load paper in the machine

    Load one sheet of A4 size or Letter size plain paper into the front tray.

  4. Print a nozzle check pattern

    Make sure that the machine is on and click Print Check Pattern.
    Printing of the nozzle check pattern begins.

  5. Check the print result

    When the dialog opens, check the print result. If the print result is normal, click Quit.

    If the print result is smudged or if there are any unprinted sections, click Cleaning to clean the print head.
