PROBLEM - OUT OF PAPER

If many people are waiting for printouts, and nothing is actually being printed, the printer may be out of paper; the printer will indicate this on its display. To load paper into the N4525 printer, simply pull out the tray #1 or #2 located at the bottom of the printer in the front, and put the paper in the bin. Put the tray back into the printer. To load paper into the N24 printer, locate the tray in the front of the printer.
Pull the tray out, and locate the bin indicated by the large arrow in the lower left-hand corner. This is the side where you put the paper. Then, push tray 4 back in to the printer
.Make sure you put the paper on the correct side of the tray. This is the most common error. There are usually diagrams on the inside of the trays indicating how to put in the paper.

prints color badly won"t stay


Hi w0rtm,

To correct this issue you need to clean the print head. Please follow the steps below.

1. Press the "Power" button to turn the printer on. Wait for the printer to fall silent, indicating it has finished all of its warm up.

2. Load letter size plain paper in the printer's input tray if none is present. Hold down the "Resume" button until the printer's power light flashes once, and then let go of the "Resume" button.

3. Wait for the printer's power light to stop flashing, indicating the printer has finished cleaning the print head. Print a nozzle check sheet by holding down the printer's "Resume" button until the power light flashes twice.

4. Examine the nozzle check printout, looking for missing or broken lines in any of the sections. If you see problems with the printout, run the printer's cleaning program again and then print another nozzle check pattern.

If this does not work, please try these.

1. Turn on the printer.

2. Click the "Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer's desktop. Click "Control Panel." Choose "Printers and other Hardware." Select "Printers and Faxes."

3. Double-click the "Canon i550" icon. Click "File" in the main menu, scroll down and click "Printing Preferences." Hit the "Maintenance" tab.

4. Click the "Cleaning" button. Select "All colors" to be cleaned and click "Execute."

5. Click the "OK" button.

6. Print a sample page and examine whether the quality has improved.

7. If the quality has not improved, repeat Steps 2 and 3. Click the "Deep Cleaning" button this time. Select "All colors" to be cleaned and click "Execute." Click the "OK" button.

If still encountering the same issue, please uninstall and reinstall the unit's driver.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

PRINTING ON PAGE IS VERY FADED AND SOME PARTS NOT PRINTING AT ALL


First, checkthat the USB cable is secure in both the printer and the computer and that theprinter is sitting on a flat surface. The printer may not work if it is tilted.

Next, run a printer check to make sure the printer is operational. To run aprinter check, turn off the printer and the computer and unplug the USB cable.Turn on the printer and press the Maintenance button. Use the down arrow buttonon the printer to highlight More Options on the display screen and press OK.Highlight Nozzle Check and press OK twice. If a page prints out, reinstall theR300 software on your computer.
Lines inPrintout
R300 mayproduce printouts with light horizontal lines that are not a part of theprintout. This is called banding and can have several causes. First, trycleaning the printer head to clear any clogged nozzles. To clean the printerhead on the R300, press the down arrow button to highlight More Options andpress OK. Use the arrow buttons to highlight Head Cleaning and press OK twice.The printer will take about 30 seconds to clean the print head, after which youshould run a printer check as described above. If the printout has gaps, pressthe STOP button to run the print head cleaning feature again. Once there are nogaps in the printout, press OK.

If the printout still has banding, open the Print window on your computer andclick on Properties. In the Properties window you can choose the print quality,speed and printer type. Select a higher print quality and a lower speed andmake sure the paper type matches the type you are using for the printout.

Finally, check that the ink cartridges are not empty or close to empty andreplace them as needed.
Faint Printout
If your printout looksfaint or faded when using the R300, try cleaning the print head. Next, replaceany ink cartridges that are old, low on ink or out of ink. Check that the papersetting on the computer matches the type of paper you are using for theprintout.

Another potential cause of faded printouts is incorrectly loaded paper. Sometypes of paper have a printable side that is whiter or shinier on one sidecompared to the other. The printable side of the paper needs to be loaded intothe printer face up.

how do i clean the print head to a good printout


This is a Thermal Printer, which means it uses tiny hot wires to create dots on special paper to form the characters. There may be little to nothing you can do to make output better. You can try unplugging the unit from the power source and using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to clean any paper fibers or residue from the face of the print head. More likely than not however is the possibility that you will have to have the print head replaced in order to restore crisp printouts. These print heads, much like the older dot-matrix print heads, have a limited lifetime because of the way they function.

standard top bin full remove paper


Hi there is seems that the machine thinks there is too much paper at the paper printout exit. If there are printouts on the top of the printer remove them and the printer will start printing or the error message will go away. If there is nothing on top of the printer then where the paper comes out after it has printed you will see a black plastic lever type it is more likely to be in the up position without breaking it if it hasn't already been broken move it so it is in the down position it is on a hinge so be careful and it should sit at an angle. Once this has been done the printer will reset the message itself.

Hope this is help you oh if the arm is broken it will need replacing (just the arm)

Thanks J
