Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printout quality Printouts are sloping from top left to bottom right of page as if distorted. It would appear that there is a slight increment offset added to each line of print resulting in this overall effect. Can anyone suggest a solution ? Have tried deleting then re-intalling the driver but to no effect.

Check the Tech help line at Canon. If it still in the warranty period this is the route to go. Certainly looks like no user adjustment is possible

First, checkthat the USB cable is secure in both the printer and the computer and that theprinter is sitting on a flat surface. The printer may not work if it is tilted.

Next, run a printer check to make sure the printer is operational. To run aprinter check, turn off the printer and the computer and unplug the USB cable.Turn on the printer and press the Maintenance button. Use the down arrow buttonon the printer to highlight More Options on the display screen and press OK.Highlight Nozzle Check and press OK twice. If a page prints out, reinstall theR300 software on your computer.
Lines inPrintout
R300 mayproduce printouts with light horizontal lines that are not a part of theprintout. This is called banding and can have several causes. First, trycleaning the printer head to clear any clogged nozzles. To clean the printerhead on the R300, press the down arrow button to highlight More Options andpress OK. Use the arrow buttons to highlight Head Cleaning and press OK twice.The printer will take about 30 seconds to clean the print head, after which youshould run a printer check as described above. If the printout has gaps, pressthe STOP button to run the print head cleaning feature again. Once there are nogaps in the printout, press OK.

If the printout still has banding, open the Print window on your computer andclick on Properties. In the Properties window you can choose the print quality,speed and printer type. Select a higher print quality and a lower speed andmake sure the paper type matches the type you are using for the printout.

Finally, check that the ink cartridges are not empty or close to empty andreplace them as needed.
Faint Printout
If your printout looksfaint or faded when using the R300, try cleaning the print head. Next, replaceany ink cartridges that are old, low on ink or out of ink. Check that the papersetting on the computer matches the type of paper you are using for theprintout.

Another potential cause of faded printouts is incorrectly loaded paper. Sometypes of paper have a printable side that is whiter or shinier on one sidecompared to the other. The printable side of the paper needs to be loaded intothe printer face up.

I need help setiing the time on my adidas adh4004 watch. The manual wont help!

You are right the manual is useless.

To set the watch it needs to be in T1 setting, you can do this by using the C (top right) button, to chose just push once and the number should change, hold to set it to T1.

After that, push the A button (top left), this should hopefully display 'Light'. If it still displays 'Offset' then you are still in T2 (offset lets you offset the GMT). Try the C steps again.

Once 'light' appears you can scroll through the menu using B (bottom left), at which point you should find the time selection option. It should be flasing, use the two far right up and down buttons to then set the time/date etc. Press B to move on to the next setting. When you are done press A.

Red and blue lines across printouts

open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.
