New Print head installed. It will not align printer


is the paper coming out with the print on it, if so on most all in one printers it needs you to take the paper out and put it in the scanner and press the go button on the screen or the flashing light button on the printer to finish alignment.

I have changed all ink cartridges on my canon pixma ip4200 printer and it now doesn't work, the green and amber lights flash for 11 times and the cartridge carrier doesn't move. Please can someone advice...


From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

I just changed my ink cartridge on my F4280 hp printer, now my printing is blurry


Hello.
Try running the print head alignment feature through the computer. (Click Start - Control Panel - Printers and Faxes - RIGHT CLICK HPF4280 - select printing preferences - select maintenance - select cartridge alignment and follow the on screen instructions) This can also be caused by solid pieces of ink stuck inside the print head disrupting the flow. if it a genuine HP cartridge contact HP for a replacement. The link below shows how to clear blockages also http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
I hope this helps Regards GM

Hi Good day!!! Try to clean your print head

Please follow this step:

1. Turn on the computer and monitor. If using a Windows-based computer, click the "Start" button on the toolbar at the bottom of the monitor screen.

2. Move to "Settings," then "Control panel."

3. In "Control panel," look for "Printers and other hardware." Click on it. Inside this dialog box, you should now click on "Printers and faxes."

4. In the "Printers and faxes" dialog box, select the HP printer icon.

5. Using the right mouse button, click on the "HP printer" icon. At the bottom of the list, click on "Properties."

6. You should see seven tabs in this dialog box. To clean the printer heads, click on the "Services" tab. Under this tab, select "Align the printer cartridges" and "Clean the printer cartridges." For now, click on "Clean printer cartridges."

7. A new dialog box should appear, then click on the "Clean" button. The cleaning will now begin for the printer heads. This only takes about two minutes to complete. If you think your printer heads have not be cleaned well enough, do another test until the printer functions as it should.

8. Cleaning printer heads is something that should be done on a regular basis. Cleaning the printer heads will keep the printer from being ruined and causing unnecessary headaches.

Thank you for using FixYa

My printer shows head alignment problem, what to do? it prints top half of the line only


Go to Control Panel. Click on Printers & Faxes. Right Click on your Printer's icon. Click Properties on the drop down menu. Click Maintenance Tab. Select Print head Alignment. Carry out the instructions displayed. A print test page will be printed after the alignment has been done. Check the printed matter with the sample page. If not OK again carry out the process till you get a clear printed page.

Canon fax Jx300shows error B200 Pls help


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

Blue screen when I push PLAY, audio distorted.


The heads are clogged or the alignment is out. In either case, a professional cleaning and alignment should be done. This should not require any parts, just labor. Bring this to a shop as specialized equipment and tapes are required for proper alignment.

Try to playback the tape and the screen is all blue


your heads motor ( drum ) cable may have have come loose or is dirty - since the cleaning tape made some difference the heads were dirty or almost worn out ( cleaner tape is abrasive ) so now there isn ' t enough signal ; if your date and time display worked only in play ? ( still works for camera record video ) your guides were out of alignment - and the cleaning tape took your guides even further out of alignment ( alignment here starts at $ 50 + shipping )
