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."

Alignment failed when run


If Printer heads health condition is not good, alignment wont completes..
Four individual cartridges & Two print heads, each print head prints two colors.. Black& Yellow, Cyan & Magenta.. Verify which color is not printing properly(Color missing Or white bands)..
Perform 2 or 3 times print head cleaning through printer menu..Try for alignment.. If success end.. if no, replace the print head which is not printing properly.. Before replacing the printer head ensure that cartridge ink should be above 30%...

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.

Parity error issue with TF85 DSSI based on VAX4000 - 700


If cleaning the heads using the cleaning tape did not help, then there are 3 possibilities that I know of:

1) The heads are sufficiently dirty to require direct cleaning with a more powerful solution.
2) The heads are defective.
3) The heads are out of alignment.

Parity errors are not usually controller problems. If the head alignment has drifted enough, you may be missing a track when recording. An initialization includes writing format information at the beginning of the tape. This is "re-read" during the process to confirm correct writing. This is the part that is failing.

Keep me posted.
