If printing is blurry even when the ink roller is in the proper position, replace the roller. Ink roller: Type EA-732R
WARNING APPLYING INK TO WORN INK ROLLER OR USE OF UNAPPROVED INK ROLLER MAY CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO PRINTER.
1) Turn the power off. 2) Remove the printer cover. (Fig. 1) 3) Remove the ink roller by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it upward. (Fig. 2) 4) Install the new ink roller and press it in the correct position. Make sure that the ink roller is securely in place. (Fig. 3) 5) Put back the printer cover.
Replacing the Ink Roller 1. Press OFF. 2. Remove the printer compartment cover. 3. Remove the ink roller from the right side of the compartment. Insert your index finger, nail down, under the tab on top of the ink roller. Gently lift the ink roller out of the compartment. 4. Lower the new ink roller (IR-21) into the compartment and align the hole in the ink roller with the pin in the compartment. Press down until it snaps into place. 5. Replace the compartment cover. Warning Never refill or moisten the old ink roller. This can damage the printing mechanism and void the warranty.
I have a Casio FR-1211 Printing Calculator and I have the same problem. I removed the roller and tried inking the roller with "Sanford's Roll-On Stamp Pad Inker". It works beautifully ! I don't know how long it will last, but for now the print is dark and clear.
The manual for the Canon P170-DH calculator is found on the canon usa web site. It is 22 mg in size, but prints out to 4 pages in English, Spanish and French.
According to the manual: Use only Ink Roller CP-13.
There are four figures showing the steps, so you'll have to imagine it.
1. Turn power switch off.
2. Remove the printer cover (Figure1).
3. Hold the tab of the ink roller. Lift the ink roller out of the base (Figure2).
4. Insert the new ink roller into position. Push down on the center of the ink roller until it locks into place (Figure3).
5. Replace the printer cover (Figure4).
Print out the manual for yourself and put it in a safe place.
The instructions in the manual are (1) remove the printer cover by pressing down on the (triangle) mark. (2) Lift up the old ink roller and remove it (3) Insert the new ink roller by pressing it gently into position (Use Canon Ink Roller CP-16) (4) replace the printer cover. My roller has the term "Pull Up" on the left side of the roller.
Unless the ink roller that you installed was dried out, usually, the replacement rollers just snap in place and are good to go. Check to make sure there is ink on the roller by either pulling the ink roller out again, and touching it with your finger. If no ink on your finger, you might have received a dried out replacement roller. Also the roller should be somewhat like a sponge. If you push against the sponge and it doesnt spring back and it stays indented, then the roller might also be bad. If you happen to have a bottle of ink for an ink pad, you can try soaking the roller with the ink so the roller is wet, (but not DRIPPING WET) and try it again in the calculator. IF you get some image for a little while, then I would say try a new fresh ink roller.
Hope this helps.
