Hi There,

I have MX 920 which recently started to print the black text deformed in some of the lines, I tried deep cleaning and nozzile alignment with no luck.

Hi MoeTheITGuy,


The deformed text may be due to the print head alignment.  I would recommend checking that the ink tanks are seated properly then align the print head manually from the operations panel.  Please click HERE for steps to align the print head manually.


If that does not yield any change in output, try cleaning the encoder strip inside the printer.  Please click HERE for steps to clean the encoder strip inside the printer.

Unfortunately, your steps didn't solve my printer problem.

I tried to align the print head manually and now it became worse.

I attached a sample with its printouts.IMG_20190106_0001_Page_1.jpgIMG_20190106_0001_Page_2.jpg
