From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:

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 was printing the other day and each page got lighter and lighter and now it doesn't print anything in black. There's ink in it and I turned off the printer. What else do I need to do to get it to print...


How long has it been since you printer prior to the other day ? If you do not use your printer for some time, the ink will dry out even if it's a new cartridge.

You need to do the print head cleaning. The steps are listed below.

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing
If the printed Nozzle Check Pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.

1. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

2. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

3. Press the <Set> button.

4. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

5. Press <Set>.

6. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
