Print head alignment



If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, adjust the print head position.


  • If the remaining ink level is low, the print head alignment sheet will not be printed correctly.

    Replace the ink tank whose ink is low.

You need to prepare: two sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

  1. Check that the printer is turned on.

  2. Load two sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in cassette.

    After inserting the cassette into the printer, the paper setting confirmation screen appears on the touch screen. If the page size shown on the touch screen is A4 or Letter, select Yes. If not, select Change and change the page size to A4 or Letter.


  3. Open the operation panel and pull out the paper output tray.

  4. Select  (Setup) on HOME screen.
    The setup menu screen will appear.


  5. Select  Maintenance.
    The Maintenance screen will appear.


  6. Select Auto head alignment.

    The confirmation screen will appear.


  7. Confirm the message, then select Yes.

    The print head alignment sheet is printed, and the print head is aligned automatically.
    This takes about 3 to 4 minutes.


  8. When the completion message appears, select OK.


  • If the print results are still not satisfactory after adjusting the print head position as described above, adjust the print head position manually.


  • To print and check the current head position adjustment values, select Print the head alignment value on the Maintenance screen.
