Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

2 Answers

(Canon) Pixma MP150. I have cleaned my printer per the Canon MP150 Series Printer Printing Preferences on the Maintenance tab. I also chose the Nozzle Check and color ink printed beautifully. There's no problem there. I also printed the page 'about ink'. It prints the color box that I am to use to replace the color cartridge-in color, I might add. However, when I am printing a birthday card from by Hallmark Greetings Workshop, it will only print black. What is the problem, and how can I fix it? Sincerely, Judi S.

See if your printing options on that card is set to "grayscale". If it is, then take that off.

I have just replaced the coloured ink in my Canon Pixma MP150 Series Canon Printer and the ink is printing out very faintly on a couple of photographs, How can I make the printer print a good colour

Try to do some cleaning and alignment. You can access that by going to your printing preferences and clicking on the maintennance tab. Or, pull up the document that you want to print. Click File, then click print. Click on Printing Preferences and click on the Maintennance tab. The tab would have different levels of cleaning.

Prints horizontal lines on images

Most Inkjets have maintenance software installed in the computer itself where the printer is attached.
If you would like to try, please click on Start/Printers and Faxes/ A new window will pop up where your Canon Pixma MP500 will be shown. Right click on the Canon icon and left click on the Properties.
A new window will pop up. See if there is any Utilities or Maintenance Tab. If none, try clicking on Printing Preferences. Another window will pop up. Normally this is where your Maintenance Option is displayed. Clicking on the Maintenance (sometimes they use Utilities) Tab, a list of maintenance options will be displayed.
Pls follow the on screen instructions. They icons represent the action you would want done like head cleaning, alignment, roller cleaning etc. Clicking on the icon initiate the action.

Printing is a pinkish colour


The maintenance for your printer is in the preferences for your printer.
From your desk top, Go to start. Open the control panel, find the printer icon. find your printer and right click the mouse over the icon. scroll down to properties. on the first tab you wil see at the bottom preferences and test page. press the preferences and open. on the last tab you wil see "maintenance". The cleaning facilities available to you as a user are on this page. be sure to print a "Nozzle check" prior to cleaning.
Do a light clean first and re print the nozzle check, if there is still missing lines, do a deep clean. If this failes you may need your print head replaced. This can be an expencive excercise, but well worth it.

The mini 260 printer do not print


go into the preferences of the printer, under the maintenance tab you will see head clean. clean the head and do a nozzle check. If you get nothing after two or three head claens, then the head is failing and will require replacing.

Its probably a head alignment problem
Control Panel/Printers right clich on the printer icon and select Properties
Select the Maintenance tab
One of the options is head alignment chose that.
It will give you a printout of the 9 head alignments (A to K).
Update each to the value which shows solid printing on the printout.
Save changes.
May as well clean the heads while your there as well.
