Is this using it on its own[Stand alone mode] or through the computer?

Assuming the Copy mode shows "Fine", You need to change it to "Normal".

To do this, you first need to change the Paper type to "Plain" and then change the Copy mode.

The Canon "ties together" the Copy mode and paper type...stupid but true.

Printer is not working

It is possible that the FAX in the memory is causing the problem. Try unplugging the printer from the wall and leave it off for a minute or two to see if it will clear the memory

The printhead is plugged or burned out for the 3EBK. You need a new printhead, QY6-0049-000, around $40.00.

MP780 copy mode/resolution

Mine was stuck on fine photo resolution too and it wouldn't print in normal black. I tried lots of things and the only thing that seemed to work was pushing the photo button and then pushing the copy button again. Good luck.

Blurry Scanning/Copying

Are you scanning both black and white and color the same way? The ADF (automatic document feeder) uses a different scanning area than when you place the document on the scanning glass. If you open the scanner cover, look to the left of the main scanner glass to the narrow strip used for the ADF. Make sure this narrow strip is clean -- no ink or white-out or scratches. This can make your copies look dirty or smudged.

Resetting to "normal" print

I am guessing that you do not have the Manual.

Try this site for a Manual:

It should have the instructions you need.

Have you tried the Printers Help pages?

Good luck.

Copying with page feed results in a vertical line on every page

There must be a strip of glass about one inch wide, next to
the large glass. There is the problem !
Clean that strip thourougly. When you use the feeder the pages
are scanned thru the small strip of glass.
