Hi I was wondering if you could help me with a printer problem I am having...Everytime I print a document with blue colours in it, there is a blurry line of darker colour across the entire page (front and back). It is about 5mm in thickness. I have changed to a brand new color cartridge and it still happens. Please help this is URGENT!! Thank you.

Re: Printer Problem - Konica Minolta 7450
If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are
probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the
entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer. Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by
taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down,
as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s
contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it
exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a
dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed. If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to
frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the
toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat
surface. Horizontal lines A horizontal line on the printout is probably the result of a
dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you
can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller
is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant
lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part
might be causing the problem.
between lines Faulty
cartridge developer roller
cartridge photo drum Regularly spaced splotches If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the
way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum
or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than
three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum
has a larger diameter than the fusing roller. Vertical line on edge of page This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less
frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every photo in its EXIF metadata. If you want the date printed on your photos then please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer you may have the option of printing the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

In general, you can print the images captured with the camera directly via Compact Flash card on any printer specified to accept Compact Flash type I and II. Please contact manufacturer of the printer for technical details.
When printing the recorded images directly from the card slot of the printer, the printer which does not support TIFF and RAW cannot print those image files. Print the images with an application software which supports those file formats.
DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format. The DiMAGE 7 supports DPOF Ver. 1.1 so that you can specify the images and the number of copies to be printed and the print type. This technology enables you to take your Compact Flash Card to a Photofinishing Print Service, or personal printer, which supports DPOF, and print the selected images at the number specified automatically. DPOF also enables you to print an index print of all your images. Please see the DiMAGE 7 instruction manual for details about setting the DPOF.
Yes, the DiMAGE 7 is PIM-enabled. The camera records necessary information as it stores every image captured, and passes printing option information to a PIM-enabled printer to create optimum results. The PIM-enabled printers process the image automatically for excellent print quality.
