Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

Aargh! I have a Canon Pixma iP6700D printer that has been wonderful (Win XP). I've printed several photos w/ no problem. Today, it grabbed two 4x6 gloosy sheets from the automatic feeder and delivered them w/ wet ink both on top and on the underside. Now, on the scenic photos, there is no green--it's printed as lavender/purple/black. Yellow flowers are printed in a light magenta. I've run several maintenance functions, including nozzle and roller cleaning. No success. However, when I print the vivid color in a Disney pix, the colors are fine. Tanks are full Have tried both glossy 4x6 and plain paper. Same results. What's wrong?! Thanks, Judy

SOURCE: Horrible print quality

hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. the first problem is the paper you are using hp photo paper is specialty formulated to be used with there inks. every manufacture is the same if you want the proper looking photo and you are using a Canon printer you need to use Canon photo paper because the paper is formulated for their inks. hope this helps to clarify.

SOURCE: Printer will not use the magenta color

I had the same problem. It is most likely that your print head nozzles are clogged. Your choices are to attempt to manually clean them, or order a new print head from Canon.

Attempt the manual cleaning at your own risk, this doesn't always work. When it does not work, it means your print head is damaged.

To maually clean the print head. Printer cover up (so you can get to the cartridges and print head). Turn the Printer Off. Remove all the cartridges (I put each cartridge in a separate zip lock bag). Then flip up the lever and remove the print head.
Now heat (don't boil) distilled water (Iused a good sized cook pan and a plastic measuring cup to pour the water). Find a container you can soak the print head in (I used a deep alluminum baking pan). Pour the hot (not boiling) distilled water over the print head molding where the cartridges seat down (hold the printhead over your diposable alluminum pan). Then dunk the molded print head part into the pan numerous times. When the water gets dark change it (be carefuill not to stain the sink). Then slowly pour the hot distilled over the print head (opposite side from where the cartidges seat in). Eventually no ink will be in the water. Set the print head on a dry paper towel, and let it dry for 24 hours or longer. Reinstall the print head, then the catridges. If it worked, your true colors will return. It make take up to 15-20 photos to get all the ink catridges flowing-be patient. You can also just wait 24 hours after re-installing the cartridges, and hopefully it will take less photos to see the correct color match.

Never keep printing when a cartridge is low or out.
Print a few prints every week. Not printing for weeks causes the printheead and the ink flow to clog!

Good luck. I just recovered my S820 and my i900D using the above cleaning method. Like everything else, your mileage may vary! It cost me $1.29 for distilled water and about an hours worth of time!

SOURCE: Poor photo copy when printing 4x6 glossy in cassette tray.

Set the Ink Intensity (Windows) The Intensity setting controls the amount of ink placed on the paper. The higher the intensity the darker (more ink) the printed image will be. If the Intensity setting is set too high, the printed page may become too wet and curl or streak. Follow the instructions below to adjust the ink intensity settings.

  1. Access the printing preferences by opening the printer Preferences / Properties.

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. On the Main tab, select 'Manual' for 'Color Adjustment', and then click 'Set'.

Click 'OK' to complete the setup.

I hope it helps!!!

Margins are set in printing preferences in the window that pops up after you press print. If prints like the nozzle check are off center you need to clean the encoder strip.

I have a Canon IP6700D that I was having the same problem with. I adjusted my virtual memory (increasing it) and changed from spooling to printing directly to the printer in the control panel. It seems to have corrected the problem. Hope this helps you.
