Description

Manual Adjustment to Straighten Lines and Colors (Head Posi. Adj.) (iPF9400) (iPF9400S)

Solution

 

If printed vertical lines are warped or colors are out of alignment, execute Head Posi. Adj. to adjust the Printhead alignment.
Normally, execute Standard.
However, when printing on special paper, or if printing is not improved after Standard, try Manual.
Manual adjustment requires you to examine the printed test pattern and enter an adjustment value.
 

NOTE
  • We recommend using the type of paper you use most often for adjustment.
  • If the printhead position was not adjusted during initial setup or when the printhead was replaced, execute Initial adjustmt.

 

 

<Items to Prepare>
When Using Rolls : An unused roll at least 254.0 mm (10.00 in) wide
When Using Sheets : Three sheets of unused paper, A4/Letter size (or one sheet when using A2)

 

 

Perform adjustment as follows.

 

 

1. Load paper.
IMPORTANT
  • Always make sure the loaded paper matches the type of paper specified on the printer. Adjustment cannot be completed correctly unless the loaded paper matches the settings.

 

 

2. On the Tab Selection screen of the Control Panel, press or to select the Settings/Adj. tab ().

9. Press or to select D-1, and then press the OK button.

 

 

10. Examine adjustment test pattern D-1 and determine the number with straight lines.

For example, choose 11 if you cannot decide whether pattern 10 or 12 is better.
