   My Canon MX452 is starting to double print everything.  How do I correct this?



Hi gnaines!


Welcome to the Canon Forums and thank you for your post!


So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know the Computer Operating System you're using (Windows XP/Vista/7/8 or Mac 10.x), as well as the way you connect to your printer (USB or networked via WiFi or Ethernet).

Any other details you'd like to give will only help the Community better understand your issue!

If this is an urgent support need, please CLICK HERE to reach our friendly Technical Support Team by phone (during normal business hours) or email.

Thanks and have a great day!

I run on Mac 10.x Maverick.  I have a USB connection on the pinter  but I can also print from other computers like my laptop via WIFI.   Hope this helps.  Also, when I run a test page, the result is sharp and focussed.  


Hi gnaines,


Performing a print head alignment on the printer may resolve the double printing issue.  To perform a print head alignment, please follow the steps located at the link below:
