To check whether your printer is functioning properly or not, you need to print a test page. Moreover, at times you will also need to align the printer cartridges. Here are a few steps on the same.

In the normal course of events, printer cartridges alignment is only necessary when you are either installing a cartridge or replacing one. However, at times if the characters form improperly or the straight lines appear wavy, you need to align the cartridges.
