Question about Canon MF8180C Color Laser MFC Printer
Replaced the K cartridge. After closing the lid the printer did not print anything just spat out a blank piece of paper. Went to replace K cartridge again and noticed the cartridge was not in-line prooperly. Eased it out and put it back in. Now printer is saying to replace all cartridges C, M, Y and K. It looks like the alignment of the cartrige holder is out. Any ideas?

Generally speaking this is the procedure for most Canon printers. post your model # if these instructions don't work for you,
With the printer drivers installed you only need to carry out one further operation and that is the Print Head Alignment. Make sure you have some plain A4 (8 1/2 X 11) paper loaded then click on the Start button and select Printers and Faxes in the Settings. Right click the Canon printer icon and select Properties. On the Properties panel select the Maintenance tab and then click on the Print Head Alignment button. A pattern is printed, you must look carefully at each Column and decide which colour has the least lines i.e. the smoothest looking patch and enter the number (-3 to +7 ) in each of the eight boxes

OK. It sounds like there's something on the carriage bar restricting the movement of the ink carrier. Perhaps some ink got on the bar.
Try taking a clean lintfree rag dampened with rubbing alcohol and clean the bar. This may have to be repeated a number of times to get the foreign matter off the bar and the ink carriage.
Let me know if this helps. iF it does not we can try something else.
