Hi
Printer will print alternating color horizontal bars about 3/16" wide
I have tried MANY times print head alignment. to no avail.

What should alignment test pattern look like??? Destint bars or a solid block. ( In A thru K of the patterns )

If someone is interested I can scan and send an example of what I'm getting.

Hi Tom – Welcome to – [Geeks to Go]

I believe what you are describing is the – [Nozzle Check Pattern] – Any unevenness in these patterns indicate that the – [Print Heads] – require alignment –

They probably will be in – [different colors] – [identical sizes] – [identical darkness] – you want them to be solid – with – [Little or No white lines] – inside each bar – I guess go ahead – [Scan & Send] – a copy of Test Page -

Do you have the Print Manual/Startup Guide with your printer or do you have the CD – They are probably on CD – [as pdf files] – If not then you can download at this – [download library link] below –

What is the – [Printer Status] – when performing other/normal – [Printing Tasks] – Are you having poor quality printing [??] –
