Article ID: ART178663 | Date published: 11/25/2020 | Date last updated: 11/25/2020


If your prints are misaligned, an automatic print head alignment may help resolve the problem.


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

 We recommend using the same type of paper for print head alignment as for printing.

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

You will need two sheets of A4 or Letter-sized paper.

  1. Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  2. Select Maintenance on the HOME screen.

  3. Select Print Head Alignment.

    Select Print Head Alignment

    The Print Head Alignment screen will appear.

  4. Select Auto.

    Select Auto

    The confirmation screen will appear.

  5. Select Yes.

  6. Select the paper to use.

  7. Load the prepared paper in the top feed or the manual feed tray, depending on the displayed message.

    If the paper source is the manual feed tray, load one sheet of paper at a time.

  8. Select OK.

    The print head alignment sheet is printed, and the print head is aligned automatically.

    This takes about 2 to 3 minutes.

  9. When the completion message appears, select OK.

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