Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Printing is fuzzy.

If there is a vertical chart or table to be printed, the line will not be straight. I have tried every trouble shooting suggestion in the book that came with the printer.
I will say that there was a paper jam once, and it has not printed correctly since then.

Try doing head alignment, this feature is located under the printer properties... goto Start, then Setting, then Printer and faxes, and point to the printer model, right click and select Properties... then select Maintenance and from there, you can clean head and head alignment... print the alignment sheet and select the best straight line.. that should help.

MY designjet 430 all of a sudden is not printing straight, but is printing wiggly lines. Any ides on how to fix this?


You can try Print-Quality Plot test to diagnose the problem. Load paper, when ready light up, then press Form Feed and Media Source keys together. After print is done, unload paper.

This plot consists six tests. The third one is Vertical Line Straightness (VLS) test. You can read the HP 430 Service Manual page 6-7, 6-8 and 6-9. These articles will tell you how to correect the problem.

Canon MP510 prints uneven lines.


I assume that you've cleaned the nozzles and alignment utility.  Try wiping the carriage bar with a lint free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, the paper feed rollers may have collected some "goo" and should be cleaned with the rubbing alcohol. This should clear the problem.
