How do I align the head on my Model-PIXMA MP 970 Canon Printer?

In short, while the printer is On, press the Home button on the printer, use the up-down button to scroll down the menu and locate "Settings", again scroll down and locate "Maintenance", press "Ok" and locate "Auto Head Align" and press "Ok", again press "yes" when you see a confirmation message on the screen. The alignment page will print out. Make sure there's paper in the tray (not in the adf) before performing this.
The long procedure is given below (if in case you need it):
Press and release the On/Off to turn the power on. Open the sheet feed cover on the rear paper tray. Pull out the paper support until it stops at its fully extended position.
  1. Open the paper output tray. Flip the paper output tray extension out. Load a sheet of letter-sized plain paper in the rear tray. Slide the paper guide to the right until it is snug against the left side of the paper.
  2. Press and release the Home button on the control panel. The Home screen will be displayed on the LCD panel. Press the Up or Down Arrow button to scroll through the menu. Select the Settings option. Press and release the OK button. Select the Maintenance option. Press and release the OK button. Select the Auto head align option. Press and release the OK button.
  3. Wait for the confirmation screen to be displayed on the LCD panel. Select the Yes option. Press and release the OK button. Wait for the printer to automatically align the print head and print the alignment sheet. This process should take approximately 4 minutes.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an Epson 6000 cX. I had a few jams (with some really thick paper) which I cleared, At the same time I replaced a cartridge. Now it makes a horrible clicking sound like something is not aligned or...

you've propably messed up the alignment of the paper feed gears, maybe a little careful (!) tweakingwith a flatheaded screwdriver can help it, if not, then yes, you broke it.

My DCP-165 has started taking more than one page at a time. This is not really a problem when printing single sided but when usign to print double sided it messes up the sequence. Any ideas

This is usually caused by the tray being incorrectly adjusted.

First remove the paper and check for curls on the end that was facing the rear of the tray. If the paper has curled, it was pushed too far into the tray.

There is a small tab inside the tray at the front that should be aligned with a mark that says "Ltr or Letter". There should actually be a little arrow on the tab pointing to an alignment mark what should say "Ltr or Letter". If it is pointed at something else, squeeze it to move it to the "Ltr" mark Once done, the paper should fit loosely in the tray without curling at either end.

Please note. SOME of these models have a tray that adjusts differently. In these models you can actually make the tray a little bigger by pulling it lengthwise. Consult your owners manual or down-load it from if you are unsure. In either case there will be two marks in the tray that you must line up correctly to make sure the tray is set for the correct size of paper. The marks should have LTR or Letter written beside one of them. If the tray is set too small it will jam the paper up into the feed slot. If the tray is set too large, the paper may not reach the pickup roller causing a "paper out" error. The paper should sit loosely in the tray with no more than 1/4 inch of space at each end of the paper.

Also make sure your paper is not stuck together with static. It helps to "fan" the paper like a deck of cards before putting it into the tray.

If this does not fix your double feed problem,

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.

When prompted, ensure plain white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, then

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.

Will it mess up my printer if i pulled the paper out

No. But, do this while the power is off. And get a firm grip on the center of the paper and pull with increasing constant pressure until the paper come out. You don't want to risk tearing the paper. Should that happen, open the cover and see if you can't pull it out backwards. In fact, if there is more paper stickng out the top than the front, pull it out from that direction.

After you get the paper out, remove the paper from the feed tray. Turn the printer on and let it go through its startup diagnostic (that's what all the commotion and noise is about when you turn it on.) Once complete, add some paper to the tray and from either the LCD Panel menu options, run the print head alignment test and set the values according to what lines line up exactly and punch those numbers in. The print head alignment test may also be available to you from the printer's program menu tools or from the Start Menu, Printers and when your printer shows up in the box, right click your printer, choose Properties and there may be a set of tools from there that will run the print head alignment test.

That's the long and short of it, Yes, pull it out from above, from the feed tray or from the front, whichever has the most paper exposed. Then run the print head alignment test to reset the alignment.

Loading cut sheets

Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.
