Epson Stylus CX3200 All-in-One Printer

Selected FAQ

What can I do about vertical banding or misalignment?
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. You can align the print head directly from the EPSON CX3200 control panel. Load plain paper that's at least 8.27 inches (210 mm) wide to prevent ink from spraying inside the EPSON CX3200 and smudging your printouts.

1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX3200 is turned on and not printing, and the Error light is off.

2. Load plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

3. Press a Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then press the Color Copy button to print an alignment page.

4. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe.

Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3. (In this example, pattern 8 is the best in each row.)

5. Press the + or - Value buttons to select the number of the best pattern for the first row, then press the Color Copy button. Repeat this step for the second and third rows.

Note: If you select a pattern other than 8 in any row, that pattern becomes pattern #8 the next time you align the print head.

6. When you're finished, press the Stop button.
