2. Print the Pattern.

(1) Press the <Maintenance> button.

(2) Press [>] three times to display 04 on the LCD.

(3) Press the <OK> or <Set> button. The pattern is printed.

3 Align the Print Head.

(1) Observe the printed patterns and check the pattern in which vertical stripes are least noticeable. If the patterns in column H are not uniform, select the pattern in which white stripes are least noticeable (check marks in above example).

(2) Using [<] or [>] (cursor buttons), display the pattern number (+7 to - 3) of the checked pattern in column A.

(3) Press the <OK> or <Set> button. The screen for selecting a pattern in column B ( b ) appears.

Note: To cancel an operation, press the Maintenance button and retry the procedure
from the beginning.
