Print head alignment problem again



Here are the alignment issues - you can see that F and G are offset, no matter what - and the resultant effect on printing.
Can it be fixed or is it really just a **** unit and i need to get another??
Ta, Sandra

Reviewed the previews posts you made and the alignment has been performed several times. This is already a mechanical issue in the printer.

This can be fixed however by sending it to a service center if it's out of warranty and we all know that it will cost you more than having a new one.

How do I align my Citizen CLP 7202e Lable printer print head to align with the lables? Currently it starts printing low on the lable and thus the last 1-2 lines print over onto the next lable


Adjust vertical offset in printer properties. If that doesn't fix it, adjust it under "advanced". Or... you can set the offset in the printer itself. Hold down the left two buttons at the same time. Cycle through the settings until you get to vertical offset.

Manteinance program run automatically every time i try to print something


Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.

This device having auto alignment Technic,If print heads are clogged it will not print align page properly result alignment will not completed. In this condition it will ask for align print heads when ever printer switched on. To over come from this situation clean print heads fist, manually or though tool box, then try for align. If printer heads are out of health condition replace faulty print heads then perform align process.

Printing is offset


you need to run a printer alignment page like you do when you put in new cartridges.

unplug your printer plug it back in.
open door and take out print ink cartridges.
put them back in and then close the door.

It should now prompt you to do a test alignment page.

now try and print it should solve the problem.

if it does not prompt you to do a test page

Aligning the Print Head

This operation must be carried out when using the printer for the first time.
Aligning the
Print Head positions allows you to print without shifts in the color registration.
Print head alignment is performed either automatically or manually. This section deals with
automatic Print Head alignment only.

1.With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the Sheet
Feeder.
2. Hold down the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes four
times.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the Sheet
Feeder.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See “Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu” on
page 28.
3 Print the pattern.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Print Head Alignment.

Photos print with a faint 'pinstripe' effect


that could be head alignment (most noticible on low quality settings .. there is a procedure for aligning the heads ... or it could be clogged nozzles
to check these things start to print something
then select preferences .. then maintainence then
you have a choice .. nozzle check should be done first .. if all nozzles are working then go to "head alignment" and follow instructions there .. if some nozzles are not working then run the "cleaning" utility . sometimes it needs to do that several times .. if you cant get all nozzles working then you can try "deep cleaning" that uses lots of ink so you dont want to do that often ... if that doesnt work then you need new heads .. the heads in many pixma printers are easily replacable but costly ..
if all the nozzles are working and head alignment was done but you still have faint lines then try "high quality mode" .. in that mode you should not see any lines ..

There should be a procedure to align the print heads. It sounds as though they are out of alignment.

Will not print 6BK


Please see the Canon link below, and as Canon links return generic pages, type in "missing black print" (without quotes) or something of that nature. The results will include Reseat/remove printhead, among others. I have reproduced that content for you below, but I would also add that a number of folks have issues with black print cartridges, and it seems this is an issue that is fairly widespread, as one of the results is that your printer may need repair. If you have tried more than one cartridge with the same result, suggest consulting support if you don't think your usage justifies a new print head - especially if you are still under warranty.
