First, make sure your print cartridges are aligned by going to your printer software and printing out an alignment page. Secondly, adjust your printer software/properties to make sure your printing to your best photo quality. Third and most important, make sure you have the right kind of printer paper, which is probably the main reason that your page is blotchy.


Another reason its blotchy would be if the printer was not a good one.

Changed all my ink cartridges on astylus PHOTO R280 and now the print comes out with a green ting.


I suggest that you clean the inkhead with a wet paper cloth (just a little amount of warm water . enough to make the paper cloth wet).

Remember to remove the inkhead before wiping it with the paper cloth. After that, let it dry and put it back in. Try printing.

Brand new canon ink cartridges but my photographs are printing green. I tried the test print out and it came out ok. Could the photo paper I have be the problem?


Usually if your using the wrong photo paper the ink will come out wet on the print instead of drying while coming out of the tray. Printer settings then need to be changed.

I would also suggest cleaning the print heads. But you say this is a brand new machine. I'm also assuming you are using canon cartridges which would eliminate the head cleaning. Was the software installed ok also. (Driver anyway).

Epson RX595 prints "wet" on non epson paper


the reaction of the photo chemicals that are on the paper cannot be guaranteed by the printer manufacturer as they have no knowledge of its composition.

3rd party photo paper manufacturers have better compatibility results.

When using high quality laser photo paper photo comes out blotchy


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

Help! Prints a smeary mess!


it depends on the type of paper you are using.

ink chemicals react to the chemicals on the photo paper.

manufacturers have ¨recommended papers¨ : )

recommendation: ask for paper samples from paper vendors
