Prints in BLUE instead of Black ink. NEW BLACK CARTRIDGE, too!

Am printing a greeting card that is totally black ink on white paper.
Have it face down on the scanner.

It printed many cards in black (more like dary grey) ink.

NOW it is printing in BLUE, even though I pressed the black button, in fact, the first copies kicked out were black, then they degraded to blue.

WHY???

Smaller items will only feed crookedly into the printer document


Check to see if you are feeding the envelopes and 4x6 cards/photo paper correctly.

Both envelopes and 4x6 cards must be loaded and centered on the paper exit tray (not inside the paper input tray).

Printing envelopes:
  • Up to 15 envelopes can be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the envelope faces down.
  • The envelopesare centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You print the envelopes with Landscape orientation.
Printing cards:
  • Up to 35 greeting cards, index cards, postcards, or photo cardscan be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

For images on how to correctly load the paper, download your printer user's guide:

Printing on to black paper


I'm sorry, but there is no white ink in the cartridges in this printer, and there are no printers I know of by any manufacturer that have white ink to do what you're wanting to do.

All I can suggest is these two things:
  1. Go to a local printing shop and see if they can do this for you. I used to work at an Insty-Prints and they could do thermographed ink (which means the ink is slightly raised, like you see on some business cards), and probably have white or light grey ink. They may be able to do this for you.
  2. Alternatively, you can print it on your printer, but you'll have to use white card stock and have the printer print all the black (and leave the white areas white). This will use a lot of black ink so if you have a lot of these to print, it might actually be easier and cheaper (considering the cost of ink) to again go to a print shop in your area.

Printing envelopes


If you look closely at the very front of the paper tray, just to the left of the sliding thing that keeps the paper from drifting out of the front, you will see a couple of illustrations showing how to position envelopes in the paper feeder. For regular letter-sized envelopes, or even greeting card envelopes, place them face down with the top of the envelope pointing to the left as you are facing the printer. The return address area should be away from you. Position the envelope all the way to the right side of the paper feeder, then gently slide the envelope all the way back until it is stops so that it is accessible by the paper feeder. Bear in mind that it will be flipped over when it comes out. To avoid wasting an envelope, do a trial print on a piece of paper to make sure you understand the positioning correctly. Good luck!

Printing greetings cards and envelopes


At the moment it is printing both sides of Greetings cards, but this printer appears to be very sensitive with regards to placng card in the exact position in the paper tray.

Why it will not print envelopes without smudging I still don't know, so I shall just have to write address by hand after I place graphic on the envelope

This 5300 was a Christmas gift from my wife and if I could afford to change it I would. The performance is very dissapointing

Kindest Regards

Printing to card


The solution in this case is to either use Canon card paper to print on or set the media type in your printer driver to the correct paper.

The paper you are using is not absorbing the ink correctly, so when the paper exits the machine the rollers are contacting the ink and causing the smudging.

Either you have to alter how much ink is being used by changing the media type in the printer driver, or you have to buy the correct Canon paper

I've seen this happen on Canon's Photo printers when a generic glossy paper was used. Switching to canon paper solved the problem.
