I had a paperjam on my MX432 all-in-one and now I am getting blurred, shadow, duplicate letter printing. I did a clean through the machine and I thought it realigned the heads and it is better however only 70%.

Typically after a paper jam the encoder strip gets dirty. Cleaning it usually resolves this issue. Heres how to check it. If you open up the front where the paper prints, theres a clear strip that goes from left to right (its right above the greasy metal strip). If the strip is dirty (typically with ink smudges), clean with a little bit of water and q-tips. BE GENTLE! And, be sure to UNPLUG the machine before proceeding. After cleaning do a test print to confirm.

This worked for my MG3150. I tried everything and it was the last throw of the dice. Be careful, it's quite tight in there.
Thanks. (I used a baby wipe, worked a treat).

That was too fast. Thanks alot!
They should have noted that on the troubleshooting brochure the printer comes with.
We were this close to get a new one after spending 4 hrs cleaning, testing, aligning, and wasting precious ink etc...
Anyone knows a cheapper way to refill these cartridges PG-240XL? $100/month in ink is getting ridiculous, or may be we need a more efficient printer.
