Printer realigns print head

Every time I have a print job - rather it is one page or multiple - after it completes the print, the printer aligns the print head. How can I stop this?

    Yes it was also doing it after a test print. Today I uninstalled and reinstalled and that seems to have fixed it.

    Thank you for your help.

PC sends job to printer, job shows as printing, printer prints but no ink shows up. The color cartrigdes are low, but the black is full. Test pages don't print, but the cartridge cleaning and alignment...


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

My lexmark x2600 keeps telling me i need to realign the cartridge but nothing is really wrong.. wont let me print anything but alignment test pages. How do i fix this


One of the utilities included with the Lexmark software will print a "test" page.
Then, you view the test page, and enter some numbers into the utility.
The utility uses those numbers to (ectronically) align the print-heads.

Printing out crooked...fix?


Have you tried to reset your printer, not just realign. Power down completely, you want to reset it and then align itself,

You can copy and paste any of these links in your internet address bar under a new tab to take you to your manual page.

You will need to realign the alignment, and print an alignment page. Or reset printer.

How do I realign my hp photosmart c4480 printer?


To align the print cartridges from the HP Photosmart Software
1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
2. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings.
3. In the Print Settings area, click Printer Toolbox.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click
Printer Services.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click the
Printer Services button.
The Printer Toolbox appears.
4. Click the Device Services tab.
5. Click Align the Print Cartridges.
When prompted, ensure plain white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, then
press the button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
The product prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
7. Load the page print side down on the right front corner of the glass, and then press
the button next to OK to scan the page.
When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be
removed. Recycle or discard the page.

Banding


Unfortunately, one choice Canon made to keep the price low was to eliminate automatic alignment. That means you have to align the print heads manually—an unusual step for all but the least-expensive printers today. Manual alignment involves printing an alignment page, picking the best-looking choices for each of several alignment samples, and then entering the settings in the printer driver.

Keep printing test sheets


A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.

So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.
