Make sure you are using transparencies made for your type of printer. eg:...DO NOT use laser transparencies on an inkjet. and visa versa...
You dont say what kind of printer you have so I cant help too much. Let me know what type of printer you have....make ..model...etc...

and what software you are using.

    To print to a transparency, you must change some of the printer properties for your document. Here's how:


    1. Go to File | Print and click on the Properties button.


    2. On the Paper Tab, set the Source to "Manual Feed" and change the type of paper to "Transparency".

How do i adjust heat settings in xerox 6110


If you tried to print on a transparency sheet for ink jet printers, in your laser printer, you could have damaged the heating rolls. The plastic could be molten on the roll and you won't be able to remove it without damaging the roll. As long as there is just a spec of plastic on the roll you will have paper jams. There should be transparency sheets for laser printers to, but always make sure you have those before using in a laser printer.

Can I print on transparencies with my canon mp150 ? If so, what settings/icc do I use?


Yes, but they need to be specially made ink jet transparencies such as this:

Amazon Inkjet Transparencies

Canon recommends their own CF-102 transparency sheets. Set paper thickness lever to the Left and the Media Type to Transparency.

See page 17 of the manual for a list of all Canon specialty papers. Here is a link to the manual:

MP150 Manual

Thanks for using Fixya.

Ink flakes off envelopes. No problems with sheets of laser paper.


High burnier:
Try these settings.
FUSER MODES
PLAIN
PREPRINTED
LETTERHEAD
TRANSPARENCY
PREPUNCHED
LABELS
BOND
RECYCLED
COLOR
CARDSTOCK>164 G/M2
ROUGH
[Paper Type]=
NORMAL
LOW
HIGH1
HIGH2
ENVELOPE
RESTORE MODES
Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
finish.
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
(HIGH 1).
CAUTION
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

Can the Canon MX310 print on transparencies?


Manual does not mention Transparencies.
Manual states that It will print T-shirt transfers:

T-Shirt Transfers TR-301
This paper is used to create iron-on transfers. The image is printed inverted.
Paper Support Load Limit: 1 sheet
Paper Output Tray Load Limit:
We recommend that you remove the previously printed sheet from the Paper Output Tray before continuously printing to avoid blurs and discoloration.
Paper Thickness Lever: Right
Media Type:
Printer Driver Setting: T-Shirt Transfers

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Color transparencies are dark & poor color


Hello,

Nice printer.. Hope this will give hints. Considering transparency papers, please try another batch of or a piece of transparency paper. Try to adjust also the graphics preferences (dark to light) aside from transparency paper selection. Have a nice day.

Best regards,

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.
