A printhead alignment corrects the movement of the printhead so it matches the paper feed, fixing the alignment of any vertical lines and improving your overall print quality. If your prints are blurry, a printhead alignment will usually fix the issue and most printers are equipped with a built-in printer alignment feature in the tools or settings menu. The printer will prompt you to run the alignment feature if it detects an issue with print quality, or, you can also manually run the alignment as needed. To find the printer alignment feature on your machine, consult your printer’s user guide. After you have run the alignment, the printer will print a printhead alignment diagnostic page. If the test document looks straight and clear, you are ready to print. If the page looks blurry or faint, run the alignment again.
