Question about Canon MP610 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Vertical lines. I get vertical lines only in gray scale. The photo is black and white, but if I don't select grayscale on the print there is a reddish tint to the photo. Also, why is there a #5 and #8 black? The printer only uses the #5 black, and when that runs out it refuses to print, even though there is a full #8 black.

    I also get vertical lines when I print, they are especially prominent when I print red.  I wanted to try to clean the heads as recommended by an earlier post, but not sure how to do this.  Any recommendations?

SC 329: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment Error
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The LD unit home position sensor does not detect an on condition while changing the LD unit position for correcting the LD position or changing the DPI.


Instructions from the Service Manual below...

.

5.4.3 LASER BEAM PITCH ADJUSTMENT
There are two laser beam pitch adjustment procedures: one for 400 dpi, and one
for 600 dpi. These adjustments use the following SP modes.
· SP2-109-1: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment - 400 dpi
· SP2-109-2: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment - 600 dpi
· SP2-109-3: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting - 400 dpi
· SP2-109-4: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting - 600 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.12: IPU Test Pattern - Cross Stitch - 400 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.13: IPU Test Pattern - Cross Stitch - 600 dpi

1. Perform SP2-109-8 (Beam Pitch Data Reset).

2. Input the value for 400 dpi that is printed on the LD unit into SP2-109-1.
Use the value printed after "P" on the new LD unit as shown below.
NOTE: Do not use values printed after a "V".

(These value numbers are on a sticker inside the machine with a UPC code on it. The numbers are just under the UPC barcode. And example number looks like this: "15980300151P: 120, 172", so the example 400 dpi value here is "120".)

3. Press the "Enter" key.

4. Perform SP2-109-3.

5. Print the 400-dpi test pattern onto A3 (11"x17") paper using SP2-902-2 no.12
(cross stitch). (See Service Tables - Test Pattern Printing - Section 4.2.3, pasted below.)

6. Write the value of SP2-109-1 on the test pattern which was input at step 2.

7. Change the value of SP2-109-1 and print another test pattern, repeating steps
2 to 5. Print about 5 patterns with different values for SP2-109-1 (e.g. "48", "96",
"192", "240").

8. Check this test pattern. If the laser beam pitch is not correct, the image looks
like a black vertical stripe pattern.
NOTE: If the laser beam pitch is correct, the vertical stripe is not so noticeable.
If the value is not correct, the vertical stripe pattern is darker.

9. Adjust the laser beam pitch position until the thin lines are of uniform thickness
(no striping effect should appear on the printout), doing steps 2, 3, and 4. (In
step 2, input a value which is estimated to be correct, then do steps 3 and 4,
then if necessary go back to step 2 and try another value.)

10. After adjusting the laser beam pitch for 400 dpi, adjust the laser beam pitch for
600 dpi, using the same procedure as for 400 dpi (use the SP modes for 600
dpi).

.

4.2.3 TEST PATTERN PRINTING (SP2-902)
NOTE: Do not operate the machine until the test pattern is printed out completely.
Otherwise, an SC may occur.

1. Access the SP mode which contains the test pattern you need.

2. Press exit, then touch the "Copy Mode" key on the operation panel to access
the copy mode display.

3. Select the paper size.

4. Press the "Start" key to print the test pattern.

5. After checking the test pattern, exit copy mode by touching the "SP Mode" key.
Reset the test pattern to 0.

6. Exit the SP mode.

These adjusments listed in the manual require removal of a service panel and mechanical adjustment of the laser mounts, so it should be done by a qualified technician.

However, these test procedures can indicate whether or not this is the problem with your printer.

How to print from the internet in Black and white and not colour

Is there any way to get my printer to print only black copies without having to buy the new color print cartridge


Go to the printer settings - Preferences- color tab - and select Grayscale in the color selection.

Once this is done, try print a color text and see if it comes in a gray scale. This will work.

To give you a tip on this.... understand that this printer has a black ink cartridge and a tri-color cartridge. When we select grayscale, only black cartridge would be used.

Good Luck.

PRINTS PROBLEM


More than likely what you want is a gray scale image and not a true Black and White image. If you tell the printer to print Black and White for a photo, you will lose all the gray shades available between the black and white bookends.

Normally, you can set the printer to print grayscale only from the driver properties page.

Hi, I have a Macbook running Tiger 10.4.11. I have yet to figure out a way to print in black and white from safari. HELP!


When you go to print (apple/p) and the dialog box comes up (lists printer, presets, copies, etc)
There should be a gray horizontal line across the middle of this dialog box. Note the drop down box that is on this gray line ... this is an important drop down box. When you select different items in this box, all the options underneath the gray line change.
The selection in this box is probably "Layout" by default. Change it to look at the different options, but as things change below the gray line don't get confused about which is the "main" selector drop down for changing all the options .. it's the one on the gray line ....
I'm using an HP printer, and when I select "Paper Type/Quality" in this drop down, I get an option under the gray line that says "color" -- the options in that box include the option for "Grayscale"
If I were to select Grayscale, then the printer will print only in black and white and shades of gray.
That's the easiest way to do what you want, and it will apply to any program you are printing from, since you are selecting "Grayscale" from the print dialog.

Look through all the different variables in the print dialog to become familiar with them.
If you often use one particular setting and don't want to have to go through the sometimes confusing search through the drop downs, since they change back to their defaults each time you print, then you can set a "Preset" - this will remember your settings and allow you to get to them easily ...
To do this, first select all the options the way you like them, for example you might select Grayscale under the Color option under the Print Quality section. Then, before you actually print anything, go the the top where it says "Presets" and do a "Save As" and choose a Preset name that will be meaningful to you ... like "grayscale" -
Next time you print, keep an eye on the preset - it may NOT go back to the default of "Standard." It may stay on the last-used Preset ... so keep an eye on it before hitting the print button.

Hope this helps!

How do I put the printer into printing in black and white only


Hi,
For taking only black & white print you can do either of the following tasks :

1 > Before taking print please goto PRINTER PROPERTIES and then go to COLOR tab and then choose GRAY SCALE. Then save these settings and you will have black & white prints then.

2 > If you finds above method difficult then just simply remove the color ink cartridge from printer and hence you will get b/w print only.

HP C4500 ink consumption


Dear Sir,

Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.

good luck
