Canon PIXMA MG2150 printing faded pictures

I've had the printer for about 5 months and it worked fine and then I replaced the ink and it started printing out pictures faded, I tried cleaning the cartridges, doing tests etc. but nothing seems to work. When I print out photos on photo paper it comes out perfectly fine so I'm not sure what's going wrong really.

SOURCE: Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos

Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Canon mx860 printer not using ink from PGBK 220


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Canon printer


It shouldn't dry up in such short a time, not unless you've done a lot of printing and the cartridge has run out. The seller is taking the mickey.

If you've replaced with canon cartridges and it still fails, insist on replacement or repair under warranty.

If repaired, check that it works properly before accepting it.

Hello!
We all as a canon printer consumer is needed to use Pro dot ink to refill. Please remove your cartridge and clean up the cartridge head tightly by soft/toilet paper and replace again. If it doesn't work clean it again and again... thanks

Canon mp160 faded picture


Check the Print Setup settings in the application you are printing from, typically found in the File menu, or click the Properties button in the Print dialog window. Check to see the settings for the printer. It may be set to Draft mode or may be set to the wrong type of paper. With inkjet printers it is especially important to select the correct paper type as this determines the quantity of ink delivered. Different paper has different spread of each ink droplet.
