    Hey guys. I replaced my black print head monday and now I am having alignment problems. I have a service manual and I did the head replacement completely by the book. I have since done all the test and alignments I can find and they all show that everything is perfect. But then when I print, it is FAR from perfect. Check out the pics and let me know if you have any advice. PLEASE!

    So you did the following head adjustments;

    BIAS - VERTICAL - HORIZONTAL - BIDIRECTIONAL

    ??

    Include a picture of the Test Print.

    Not only is it vertically off, it is horizontally off as well. Note how close the black is to the LM.
