Hi lakuster,


Please make sure that your PIXMA MX892 is working correctly.  To do this, please print a test page:

 4.  Select Print nozzle check pattern and then press the OK button.  The pattern print confirmation screen is displayed.


 5.  Select Yes and then press the OK button.

The nozzle check pattern is printed and the pattern confirmation screens are displayed alternately.  Please compare your printout to the example at the bottom of this post.
