How do i align my printhead on canon iP1200


I assume you are using windows.
  1. Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS, double click on the printer icon. Go to FILE, to PROPERTIES, then click on the printer SERVICES tab. Click on ALIGN the print cartridge button and follow instructions on the screen. hope this works
  2. Align the print cartridges Typically, you only align print cartridges after installing or replacing a cartridge. However, you may also need to align cartridges when:
    • Characters are improperly formed or are misaligned at the left margin.
    • Vertical, straight lines are wavy.
    From your printer:
    1. Load plain paper.
    2. Press the Menu button, and scroll to Align Cartridges.
    3. Press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.
    From your computer:
    1. Load plain paper.
    2. Open the Canon Pixma IP 1200 Utility.
    3. From the Cartridges tab, click Align Cartridges... . The Cartridge Alignment dialog appears. alignprintcartridgesa.jpg alignmentpanther.jpg
    4. Click Continue to print the alignment page.
    5. On the Alignment Status dialog, click OK if automatic alignment is successful. If automatic alignment is not successful, clicking OK will return you to Utility Main Window.

I have a X7170 it has recently began printing with vertical blank areas on the printed copy. In other words up and down on the page there missing copy. I have changed ink cartridges and this does not help....


Uneven vertical lines can be adjusted by
performing the printhead alignment adjustments.
The user is directed through the Lexmark Solution
Center to perform the printhead alignment
adjustments when replacing a printhead cartridge.
The alignment can also be performed from the
control panel by selecting the Maintenance Option,
then Align Cartridges.

Printed lines shift to left and double images


Are the lines vertical? Have you tried to align the printheads? This can be done using your printer's installed maintenance software.
