Learn how to perform a print head alignment on your PIXMA MX452 or MX459 printer to improve print quality.


If printed lines are misaligned or print results and print quality is not satisfactory, you may need to perform a print head alignment.

Before you begin

If the remaining ink level is low, the print head alignment sheet won't be printed correctly, replace the cartridge before you begin.
