Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer
On my printer, I go to maintenance. I select "Manual Head Align". It asks me if I want to print the "head alignment pattern". I do (this takes forever). It then asks me if the pattern is correct. I select "no" and am under the assumption it should walk me through the process of manually configuring the heads. Instead, it asks me if I'd like to print the head alignment pattern again. Grrr. I've tried turning the printer off and on, and I have the most up to date driver. Any other ideas?

The print head is the carriage that holds the ink cartridges and has tiny nozzles on the bottom that spray the ink on your paper. The nozzles have to be aimed (aligned) either automatically, or in WinXP with the following manual process:
1 Left click on the start button
2 Open "Printers and faxes" on the Start menu.
3 Find your printer on the printer list and right click on it once.
4 Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
5 Click on the "Maintenance" tab at the top of the new window.
A selection page for all sorts of upkeep items is then shown. Manual alignment of the print head is one of the choices.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Use the cleaning cycle first.If it completes do a nozzle check and then to align follow below.
You need to hook it up to computer to do a manual head align through the printer properties maintenance section.
