Someone has removed a cartridge and reinstalled without doing a head alignment.
Do a head align every time a cartridge is replaced or taken from holder.

Printer is misprinting even after I ran all the maitenance procedures.


check the plastic disk around the white gear if some of its micro lines were wipe out. if so, then, no choice you'll have to replace it. so do with that plastic holding the printer head across. there are microlines also with it. just check.

this is a simple problem, the technology that printer aligns its print head automatically by the reading the align page, if your printer head are not in good health/clogged align print wont come properly result align pending..When printer gets power on its prints align page till align completes. Go to tool box in system all programme, perform clean print head, check the quality of printer outs then ask to printer to align.. if its not completing replace print heads..

NO BLACK PRINTING on my Canon mx310 printer. in case of misprint please align head


Hi,

Follow the steps below to align the printer

  1. Press and release the On/Off button located in the upper left-hand corner of the operations panel to turn the power on. Open the sheet feed cover on the rear paper tray. Pull out the paper support until it stops at its fully extended position.
  2. 2 Open the paper output tray. Flip the paper output tray extension out. Load a sheet of letter-sized plain paper in the rear tray. Slide the paper guide to the right until it is snug against the left side of the paper.
  3. 3 Press and release the Home button on the control panel. The Home screen will be displayed on the LCD panel. Press the Up or Down Arrow button to scroll through the menu. Select the Settings option. Press and release the OK button. Select the Maintenance option. Press and release the OK button. Select the Auto head align option. Press and release the OK button.
  4. 4 Wait for the confirmation screen to be displayed on the LCD panel. Select the Yes option. Press and release the OK button. Wait for the printer to automatically align the print head and print the alignment sheet. This process should take approximately 4 minutes.

Regards,
Shawn

I load a document into the tray and press copy. At the beginning of nearly every line, I will get a misprint- For example, the word payment may become papayment, the word the may become ththe, Thanks...


You'll need to run it through the maintenance mode to check for print alighnment and cleaning the heads and rollers. Do it two or three times to ensure all is clear.

Then try scanning again.

HP 1210 printer won't align. Pages come out misaligned at end of page.


You need to re-align your printer, please follow these steps:
XP/2000: Go to start > control panel > printers > right click your printer and choose properties, go to maintenance and choose "Print head alignment" follow the steps on the printed page and you will be fine.
Vista/7: Got to start > Devices and printers > right click your printer and choose properties, go to maintenance and choose "Print head alignment" follow the steps on the printed page and you will be fine.
In case the steps are unclear, you will have to put your printed page under the scanner and press the scan button.
Good luck.

Changed the black printer cardtridge on a canon mp160 and getting errror code E19 when trying to align the heads...any idea why, and how to fix please? Thanks


This error idicates that the size of the document cannot be correctly detected or the document is too small when the Fit-to-Page copying is selected or the unit Failed to scan head alignment sheet correctly.

The remedy is

Make sure the document meets the requirements and correctly loaded on the Platen Glass. Then reload the document and press the Black or Color button.
Check that all necessary circles are filled in the Print Head Alignment Sheet, and that it is placed in the proper position and orientation on the Platen Glass. You can also perform print head alignment manually.

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.


My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.
