    Thank you for the reply. I found out that it did have a faulty cover sensor and swapped it out for another one back at the store. Printer works perfect :)

It may be because of the sensors. try to clean with sensors or maybe because the sensor wont reach its bottom, that is why the printer always recognizes that his cover were always open... try to push it hard..

Text and images in black are showing a partial double print and misalignment. What can I do? iP 4500 Printer about 6 months old.


the print head is not aligned. If you have your cd installer, run it again and install your printer driver. When installing make sure to turn off the printer and unplug the usb. during installation you will be asked to turn on your computer and connect the usb to your computer. After that the "Print Head Alignment" process. Load 2 sheets of paper on the printer and follow the steps on your screen. This process takes about 13 to 15 minutes, so do not try other operations other than this. After the alignment process continue with the installation. It will be easier if you have a user manual.

The following a step by step instructions for the printer issue:
Confirm the ink tank(s) are properly installed
Perform print head alignment
Perform Print Head Cleaning - iP4500
If the prints are faint or streaks are printed, the print head nozzles may be clogged. Those phenomena can be improved by performing print head cleaning or print head deep cleaning. Also, you can check the cleaning results by printing the Nozzle Check Pattern after cleaning.
Remove tape from the ink tank and make sure the air hole is clear
