    This is a laser printer not an inkjet.

    Thanks for trying, I will check to see if the printer is set for picture quality.

To get the optimum quality print for your color prints of course everything has to be set just right. On your printer installation and print menu it will ask you if you want letter quality print or picture quality, make sure that you are using the right options in this case. Also be sure that all your ink cartridges are at least half full for print purposes. God bless you

How do I print artwork getting all the colors to render accurately, so that it looks like the original painting.


Unfortunately you screen (computer or other ) isn't calibrated.
there is software mostly pro use this, but take a picture of a flat grey placard.
using your photo program to check the gamma settings and modify them until the grey on screen matches placard ( hold placard next to monitor). Then print out grey image.
important write down the gamma settings and when you put something to print check to see if these are close.

How can i get the right touchup paint match for my car


Hi Robert:
Apart from trying to get a dealer colour code, Here's what I would do.
1) Take a picture in bright sunlight.
2) Download the picture to my computer.
3) Print the picture on my Canon printer.
4) Take the picture outside and compare to the car (on a sunny day)
5) Take the picture to my local Canadian Tire or Lordco or Napa store, and match to the "rattle can" paint selection.
Ta Da!

Power it down, Unplug, clear out the Printer Que on your Computer and then reboot the Equipment. IF this does not fix it, you may have to delete the printer and reinstall into your computer... IF this a Wireless Printer, ensure you clean the Que before attempting to use it.,

Yellow ink will not print


You may have blocked yellow print head nozzles.

Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.
The Print head will contain all the nozzels for all the different colors so you cannot just replace a single color print head nozzels.

Not printing in color


If the color was faded and the printing blurred, what I did was to check the nozzle pattern,align the print head and then calibrate the process. It's all in your manual. Once I completed those steps (just a few minutes), the printing was clear and the colors bright. Hope t his works for you.
