Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer
When printing a page, the top half comes out just fine, but the bottom half fades into nothing, almost like the printer has run out of ink, but then when I go to print another page, the top half comes out fine again. What's up?
I noticed your problem and thought I'd contact you about it.
Have you had your printer checked by an expert? As the problem you're having may be to do with the print heads being to close to the paper when printing, this could cause the heads to over heat and be gradually drying the ink while printing or even could be a case of the print heads being to far away from the paper while you're printing.
Also, what sort of paper are you using?
If using glossy paper, have you set the printer to the correct settings? As this could have a big effect on printing, I was once using plain A4 paper but didn't realize that my old printer (Lexmark 4300+) was still set on glossy paper, it was doing the exact same thing.
Instead of re setting the settings of the printer I went to the system restore on the system tools and restored my PC to the last known best working stage (Left click on start, place mouse over All Programs, put pointer over accessories then System Tools and then L click on System Restore, this should give you the choice of either restoring your system to the last known best working point or restoring to a date on the calender provided on screen to a date you knew your pc worked properly.
If this doesn't work then try deleting your printer from your PC by going on to the Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, left click on your printer once and chose the remove or delete option and then try re loading the disk once your system has re started and you have fully logged back on.
If this still doesn't work, I would suggest getting your printer seen to by an expert or buying a new one.
Hope the information I've given does help.
