All the dx /cx range do this when printed on the high quality settings you just have to let ink dry about half hour or use a lower seting when you print on gloss paper hope this helps

I ask this piece of junk to print an existing picture from "My Pictures", put in HP Premium Plus photo paper, chose 5 x 7 and it tells me that the paper doesn't match. WTF???


Check that the photo size you chose in the printing software is set to 5 x 7 and that the paper size is compatible to print a 5 x 7 or smaller photo, and that the correct actual paper size has also been selected.

Smudging when printing photos, but not colour textprinting


(1) Most photopaper is made to be printed on one side only. Check to see that you are printing on the correct side. (2) You mention new cartridges. Are they the same brand as cartridges you've used before? If they're a different brand, you may want to try whatever worked before.

Printing 4x6 photos on photo paper


Sorry but your question seems to be unclear.
Here are the solutions that I see:
- try fixing the orientation of your paper on the printer:
-- go to printer "properties" then select "paper" then set it to
landscape or portrait. You might just have to cut the extra
papers
- try changing the paper size on the printer "properties" if it has
no 4x6 then choose "custom size"

Canon Pixma MP610 custom paper size problem


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

PHOTO paper


The HP printer was prepared to use HP's photo paper to print borderless pictures among other things.
If you use a third party photo paper, try using A4 size, position the picture in the paper using MS Word or another WYSIWYG program and, after printing, cut the picture in the right size.
