Default How do you do a print head Alignment?

Hello

My mod 1 started printing a little blurry, I can see that each pass is a little misaligned with the previous one.

I tried to do the print head alignment from the menu, but i get an error message.

Please advise!

Check the encoder strip, printhead height and also do a nozzle check to make sure the nozzles are spraying correctly.

Tony,

Be sure to let me know how things go after you re-seat the printhead and clean that whole area.
