Learn how to automatically align the print head of the MAXIFY GX6020 from its operation panel. If your print outs contained misaligned lines, a print head alignment may help resolve the problem.


Aligning the Print Head

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. Refill any low ink tanks.

You need a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper.

  1. Make sure the printer is powered on.

  2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the cassette.

  3. Select (Setup) on the HOME screen.

  4. Select Maintenance.

  5. Select Print Head Alignment - Auto.

    Select Print Head Alignment - Auto (outlined in red)

    The confirmation screen will appear.

  6. Confirm the message, then select Yes.

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

    This takes about 1 minutes.

    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.
