Did you try to align the unit manually or with the computer?



Alignment page does not print

1 Make sure you remove the sticker and transparent tape from both print

cartridges.

2 Make sure the color print cartridge is secure in the left carrier and the black

print cartridge is secure in the right carrier.
3 Make sure you loaded the paper correctly and did not force the paper into
the printer.

Aligning your print cartridges without a computer

Make sure you follow the steps on the Setup sheet to complete hardware

installation. Continue with the following steps to optimize print quality.

1 Make sure you have loaded paper into the paper support, and then press

and hold Scan for three seconds. For help, see "Using the control panel"

on page 4.

An alignment page prints.

2 Place the printed alignment page onto the scanner glass.

3 Press Scan. For help, see "Using the control panel" on page 4.

Once scanning is complete, your print cartridges are aligned for optimal
print quality.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Heavy black stripe on back side of every printed page


This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

I changed the black ink cartridge as per instructions and the printer printed an alignment paper which i then placed in the printer for alignment but the alignment failed


the page should be absolutely new.and the scanner glass should be absolutely cleaned.and 1 main thing u replaced your black cartridge.but if your colour cartridge is empty it will not accept the allignment complete thing.it will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.

After putting a new black and white ink cartridge into the printer, it keeps printing the alighnment sheet everytime I turn the printer on. Ugh! What a waste of ink.


actually it is given in that allign page printout that how to stop this.
but listen the procedure.
after the allignment page is printed just place that allignment page in the scanner .the readable side of the page on the glass.then press OK/ENTER what button present in your printer.
the allignment will start.the printer will read the page.and allignment will get completed.then after u ON the printer it will not give you such problem till u replace the cartridges.
