Question about Canon PIXMA IP5200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Poor print quality

Print quality is blotchy & with a purple cast esp. in areas that should appear black. All colour cartridges have recently been replaced. Do you think it could be the black cartridges / nozzles?

Any ideas??

First Perform deep print head cleaning if this fails and the print results are same then you may need to replace the print head on the printer .......


Good luck...

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have


nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

New black ink but very poor quality print?


Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.

It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).

It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.

Poor quality print


Try cleaning the LED heads. These are located in the lid and are facing you when you have raised the lid. A quick wipe with a dry cloth or tissue should help. If in doubt, check the user manual.
