Print Head Aligment


I was contacted to day from someone was seeking help with their Epson R3880 printer.

They were receiving faint vertical lines through the print despite the fact that a nozzle check showed no errors.

They informed me that they had done several cleans and a power clean (bad idea) and was still getting the faint vertical lines.

I was surprised to hear that they had never done a print head alignment. After I asked them to go away and do this alignment, I was informed that the issue was now resolved.

Always a good idea to do a head alignment test if you are experiencing faint ghost vertical lines on the print.

On the pro printers, as you perform the test, the printer will automatically correct and re-align should it find any errors.

Re: Print Head Aligment


Thanks for the reminder, Ian.
I have only done this alignment once since having my printer 2 years ago.
Would you recommend doing it every 6 or 12 months dependant on use.
Thanks
Dave

Re: Print Head Aligment


Personally, I would only suggest doing it if you experience vertical lines or if you print regularly on heavy weight papers
