Go to Control Panel. Click on Printers & Faxes. Right Click on your Printer's icon. Click Properties on the drop down menu. Click Maintenance Tab. Select Print head Alignment. Carry out the instructions displayed. A print test page will be printed after the alignment has been done. Check the printed matter with the sample page. If not OK again carry out the process till you get a clear printed page.

Not printing black


Sounds like the print head needs alignment. If an "auto" alignment can't or won't be run, somewhere in the maintenance section of your printer driver software should be an operation for running a print head alignment and doing adjustments to get the printer aligned for clear printing. First you should check the maintenance program for "head cleaning" and run a couple of head cleaning cycles to see if a clogged head is the problem...

The auto print head alignment prints ok. The Nozzle check from top to bottom prints as follows: 3eBK ok; 6C top half light blue - bottom half darker blue; 6C ok; 6M top half light pink - bottom half darker...


It sounds like your black (K) or Black/Yellow (KY) head needs to be replaced.
The problem appears to be in the top half of the black head.
Without knowing more (like what make/model the printer is) I can't help more than that.

When I print tables, the lines come out crooked. Any idea what the problem could be?


do the print head alignment... to do this..first switch OFF the printer and then load paper, press the Pause button while switching ON the printer.. the printer will then print the instruction for you to align the print head. Just follow the instruction and select the best printed line.

If when you print text or line, and you notice there is some part missing, this show that you print head have broken pins. If this happen, you will have to replace the print head.

Half of the labels information is printing


I'm assuming you mean half is showing up as you go across the label. If that is the case and it's a very clear line where the print is cut off, then check the print width setting through the front panel of the printer. Press SETUP and look for setting called MAX WIDTH. It should be set to 104MM (4") which is the width of the print head. It is set to something smaller if the print is being cutoff.

If the print is fading away as you go across then that it is a print head balance issue. Look at the print head pressure dials on top of the print head assembly to make sure they are set evenly.

Hope that helps !

Aligning print head doesn't fix the printing


You only need to clean the encoder strip. The plastic strip behind the carriage assembly. Wipe it gently with a damp Q-tip and the double lines will go away.
