Black color on photos greyish looking and pixelated

When I print photos of large area of black, such as a man's suit or tux, it turns out more greyish and pixelated-looking than solid black. This also happens on other large areas of dark colors.

Please check the Printer Setting Preference in for Best print.

And also try to work out with a new Cartridge. Let me know if the problem still persists.

Was printing photos all was ok then printer stoped printing black


There are 4 inks, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. When the black runs out, you are left with sort of a dark purple or brown color.

Printer always uses large black & runs out, cant isolate other


The BK5 is for black text only. The other black ink is used for shades of black/gray together with the three basic colors in printing color photos. You cannot use it to print black text.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

Re-Sized Photos are Grainy


Hi,

This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.

Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.

2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.

3. Low ppi pictures look fuzzy in print.

Maybe you can post a sample original picture??

"Finger Print" sized shaded area on screen


A shaded or dark spot on the screen is usually a bad pixel area and is caused by being hit or pressed to hard in that area. It could also be that the liquid crystal (LC in the LCD) in that area has become stagnant, try rubbing the area and around the area pressing firmly, just enough to see a color change in the screen area, but not too hard that the area turns black. Rubbing the area will move the liquid crystal around and sometimes refreshes a darkened area. If rubbing doesn't work, then it's a bad pixel area, and will eventually become a dead pixel area with time.
