Description

If your prints contain misaligned vertical lines, a manual print head alignment may resolve the issue.

Solution

Try aligning the print head manually after automatic print head alignment if printing results are not as expected, as when printed ruled lines are misaligned.

 Before adjusting the print head position manually, try adjusting the print head position automatically.

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

You will need a sheet 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 Manual.

    Select Manual

    The confirmation screen will appear.

  5. Select Yes.

     When the automatic print head alignment has not been performed, a message will appear. In this case, select Yes, press the OK button, then perform the automatic print head alignment.

    The media type selection screen appears.

  6. Select the paper to use.

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

  8. Select OK.

    The print head alignment pattern will be printed.

  9. When Did the patterns print correctly? appears, make sure pattern was printed correctly, and if so, select Yes.

  10. Check the displayed message and select Next.

    The input screen for head position alignment values is displayed.
