Alignment Error My printer prints fine but it prints blurry and distorted and every time I try to align it I get an error saying that It cannot automatically align itself. I have tried cleaning the cartridges, removing them and reinserting them. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

    Same problems with two different lexmark printers. Sometimes when I try to align, it says there is a short in the cartridge. My paper feeds crooked on the x4270 printer also and I know there is nothing in there. Paula

Yup I did the same, bought a Lexmark X3470 so I could plug my digital camera cards into it as well, cheaper ink, doesn't last as long but still a wayy better printer, I never needed the fax machine to begin with anyway and was getting tired of "feeding" pictures through to scan, wasn't great on pictures.

Well, got tired of it so, i trashed it-replaced it with a lexmark X3470, so far no problems, cheaper ink... great printer :) Plus it has a real scanner not one that feeds through

I have an Epson WF-3640 printer. Certain lines come out blurry when I print. I have cleaned the nozzles and the heads several tims, and this problem persists. What can I do?

Run an alignment page. This will show you if it's the same nozzle(s) every time. Sometimes an alignment error can cause a multi-color print to appear blurry.

If you have alternating broad strips of sharp and blurred printing, something such as an out-of-round roller may be causing the paper to head distance to vary.

Make sure there is no dust or lint buildup on the ends of the head slide or in the head parking area (outside the paper margins) to smear ink on the heads. If that's clean, the nozzle valves may be leaking, which means a head replacement is the fix. (Another thought: if this is one of the models with separate ink tanks, you may be able to put some rubbing alcohol in an empty tank and print a solid color page or run a cleaning cycle with that in an attempt to "deep clean" the head. No guarantees, of course; it may even make the problem worse, and is a last-resort means to avoid buying new heads.)

I have changed all ink cartridges on my canon pixma ip4200 printer and it now doesn't work, the green and amber lights flash for 11 times and the cartridge carrier doesn't move. Please can someone advice...

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

Printer says "incorrect alignment" and

Possible causes of the error you got can be that one of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink or the paper has already been printed on or is colored paper or the ink cartridge is defective.You need to
examine the paper the alignment page was printed on. Does the alignment page print correctly?You need to perform an print cartridge cleaning procedure and Try to align the page again.

I kept getting service error 5200 when I tried printing something. How do I fix this problem?

Hi there

Service error code 5200 is the print head error. Rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows and then after that remove all the USB cable connection and power cord and plug it again. Then run the print head cleaning maintenance like print nozzle or print alignment.

It should be fine right now. Please let me know if you need more help

My HP officejet 6110 all-in-one will not print. It keeps saying to align cartriges which i've done several times.

If you do a test print and any color is missing it won't pass alignment and keep giving the error. If you're happy with the printing, when it says press enter to align, press and hold the enter button and press the menu button. The error will go away and let you print.
