Question about Canon BubbleJet i550 InkJet Printer
When printing a photo using Canon Photo Glossy, my pictures print very faded with a greenish/yellowish tint. Based on Canon troubleshooting, I uninstalled driver card, reinstalled it. No difference. I then uninstalled printer, reinstalled, no difference. When aligning the printer cartridge, I see A,B, C, F, G, H, J AND K. I do not see D, E, or I. Also, they blocks are not solid. They are all have lines in the them. So it is hard to determine which is aligned the best. (i.e., +/- 1 or +/- 2, etc.) Any suggestions? Print Head Alignment check fails to print column E
From the front panel (Macintosh and Windows)Press MENU or SETUP (depending on the model).
Press the right ARROW repeatedly until the display window reads Maintenance.
Press the right ARROW repeatedly until the display window reads Align Print Cartridges.
Press ENTER. The unit will begin the alignment process and the display window will read Printing Alignment Page
Verify that the alignment was successful after the page is complete.

Try printing a diagnostic page without the PC, if it prints normal then the problem is on the PC, probably drivers or possibly the printer queue configuration. If it prints the same faded fashion then I would suspect defective or clogged inkjet nozzles. Warning, be very precise with the buttons you push, you are entering the printers diagnostic mode and you can cause problems if you push buttons out of sequence or if you push them too many times. - Start with the printer off. - Hold down the resume button and then hold down the power button - Release the resume button - Press the resume button twice, then release the power button. - Let green light blink while the printer enters the diagnostic mode. - When the printer is done press the function button once to enter the print diagnostic page mode, then the power button once to start the job. - When the page finishes press the power button once to exit the diagnostic mode. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
