Intermittantly Prints pages of ascii characters

Will print the first page or 2 OK. The all I get is a row of ascii characters on the top of the next 30 to 40 sheets unless I stop it. Cancel job.

Also, get Ascii Characters instead of Math functions, all the time.

Check your USB or Parallel cable what you are using. If not solved connect the printer to another pc . Some times computer port may get damage.

My printer will not print. I recently changed ink cartridges and I'm getting a message suggesting that I realign something. How do I do that?


Most all-in-ones require you to scan an alignment sheet after changing the ink. Make sure the printer is on. Press Menu then use the up and down arrows to navigate to Maintenance. Click OK. Navigate to Auto Head Align and press OK. Select Yes and press OK. Load a sheet of Letter or A4 sized plain white paper in the rear tray, follow the on-screen directions. Open the output tray gently and the output tray extension. Press OK. When the page prints out, do not touch the printed sections. You should see a set of broken lines on the page, among other printing. The first section of columns will have 2 black, 1 blue and 3 black. The next row has 4 columns (blue and pink (to my eye)); the final row is 3 blue and 3 pink. If this prints okay, then select Yes and press OK. Next place the printed page face down on the glass of the scanner unit so that the black triangle at the top left of the page is in the left back corner of the glass. (The triangle is an alignment mark and lines up with the alignment mark on the edge of the scanner unit.) Close the document cover and press OK. The sheet will be scanned and the print heads will be adjusted. Do not open the document cover or move the sheet until the unit has completed the adjustment. Afterwards you can discard the sheet.

If the unit fails to adjust the print head, it will indicate this in the LCD screen. In that case, try manually adjusting the print head from the Canon Toolbox on your computer. If you can't get the printhead to align properly manually, the unit may need service.

For pictures, see the manual or support for the all-in-one here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/photo_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mp490#ServiceAndSupport . If you use the Support option, search for align print head.

I hope this helps.

When scanning multiple pages, first page prints ok but subsequent pages just print lines and greyed characters


When you print to the M2727nf does all the prints come out ok? If they do you might want to get some canned air and blow out the adf assy and clean the scanner glass. If this does not work find the settings on the printer to do a scanner calabration, it will tell you how to do this from the display.

We are setting up new TallyGenicom LA800. However, printout has dot or period in between each characters printed. Hence, a single row info is printed on two rows. What seems to be the problem?


It would be strange for the printer to print dot between each printed character without this coming from the system.
As a check the first thing I would recomend doing would be to print a self test print on the printer, you can do this easiest by printing a menu print.
To print a menu print put the pritner OFFLINE
Press SETUP
Press the button under MENU
Press the button under PRINT.
The printer should print out its configuration page, if this has dots between each character then this defiantly means you have printer problems.
You can try defaulting the pritner back to factory settings, this is down by holding down the four buttons (1, 2, 3 & 4) under the LCD display whilst powerind the printer on.

If the menu prints OK, then there is some sort of other strange system or communication problem.
If the pritner is connected via serial, check the serial settings on the pritner also chack the pin configuration of the connector used to print to the printer.

Try printing from another system or application to identify what might be causing the problem for example an application or driver problem, perhaps try printing from a PC directly to the pritner to check the interface on the printer is OK.

Check the emulation setting on the pritner ensure this is correct.
