CAN NOT CONNECT TO MY PRINTER TO PRINT DOCUMENTS


First check if the printer is already installed into your computer.
Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270

If not please do the following:
1. Check if your printer is connected to the computer via USB, and check if you properly plugged in the power supply.
2. Look for the software or installer of your printer. Insert the CD to the CD-Rom and Install it until the setup completes.
3. After the installation of the printer, click Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270
4. Then try to print out some document. Just click File>Print and choose your Printer e.g.(Canon Pixma MG5270) then click the O.K. button to print the document.

Printer


you can check if you have a problem with your cartridge by testing it with a same or similar printer. I have a issue just like that yesterday. I thought it was a printer flex then i found out it was the ink cartridge itself. (you may let your printer checked as a second option).

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

If you have windows service pack 2 running on your computer you will need to download new drivers for this to work Had the same issue a few years ago with same printer, drivers are incompatiable with SP2. Copy this link and click on external mirror to download drivers. See how you go, you might need to search for some more if this one doesn't work. http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Canon-PIXMA-MP160-MP-Drivers-xp64-101-Download-50482.html
