If this is a laser printer, take drum out, locate blue tab on top or in some cases, on bottom of drum unit and slide tab back and forth several times, making sure you put tab back on the same side that it was when finished.

Big black vertical line on the back of the paper. Have cleaned the nozzle several times as directed by online instructions, but still ink line tehre, you say clean the nozzle with a stick, but you dont say...


Any ink on back of paper is a stain and not a print. So open the cover and look carefully and well into the printer, the path of the paper, and you will most likely see ink stain about the area where the stain occurs and wipe thoroughly with tissue a soft cloth.

Good luck 7 God bless!

I want to print in white ink on black paper. According to our local help desk this is not possible. I have a Canon MX310 printer. Wayne


The help desk is right but there is a way around this problem.
This printer is a color printer. The only way to print white text on black is to a program such as PowerPoint and create a black colored page and then use white colored text. You need to put white paper in your printer.
This will cause the printer to use a very large amount of black ink and if the paper is too porous then the printed text will not be clear. Make sure you use inkjet paper.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:

Big black vertical line on back of the paper.PIXMA CanoniP4200


Your black ink seems to have spilled a bit at the nozzle. The fact is even if you do nothing it should seize staining the back of the paper after a while, so long as the spill is only temporal. But if you want it over with quickly, you may try printing quite good number of pages till you see that the stops. With every print you will most certainly observe that the stain will reduce. Otherwise if you can reach into the printer with a stick or something, you may try to clean it.

QUESTION FOR DON_FARR


whenever you print greyscale what actually happen is that the printer mixes the red, blue and yellow to give the output in gray scale. See if you mix red, blue and yellow ink in the right proportion it gives you very close to black. just try to print your greyscale with your black ink finished you will still get the same print quality as when the black has ink in it. Or find a way seal the nuzzle of the black in and print your greyscale. check what results.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

Pixma MP610 - fab machine - only problem is that the large of the black cartridges empties - never uses the smaller one (No 5) why? It refuses to print if the No 8 is empty. What do I need to do please?


The large of the black cartridge (5) is for ordinary paper in printing menu of computer. Selecting photo paper uses only the small black cartridge (8) and the color cartridges are used to make black even for gray black printing. Choosing ordinary paper, you can print in black 10 even 20 times with the large black cartridge (5) (by refilling and quoted as empty) . You simply need to press a long time the hold button, as explained in the manual on the printer CD, to continue to print with an empty cartridge. (at least in Europe)
The color cartridges are slightly used even when printing only in black and become empty, even if you never use the colors!
