Question about Canon PIXMA MP760 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photo printing problems

I'm having continuous problems printing photos. The colors are routinely fading or streaking. When I clean the print head, the problem usually goes away temporarily and a photo or two will print fine. Then the problem invariably returns. I've also tried aligning the print head, but that hasn't helped, either. I've been using compatible ink cartridges (not Canon brand). Canon says the problem could be originating because I'm not using Canon-brand ink cartridges. The cartridges I bought online say they are Canon-compatible on the box. I've had the printer for a little more than two years, and had no problems before a couple months ago.

Try to manually clean the printer head. Take a cotton cloth and dab a little bit of alcohol (like whiskey) and then clean the printer head & the cartridges with it. Do remember it is a delicate process and if you messup, you might damage the printer/cartridges. So be careful & lemme know the result.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP250, and it's printing black and faded lines alternatively. (one line black, one line faded black...), sometimes involve blue too.. Anyone can help?


First, are you running low on those ink colors? If not, possibly print cartridges need cleaning. If printer has separate print heads, they made need cleaning.
Lastly, print head(s) may need replacement.

Brother will not print black but will print color


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.

Hi there,

If you have to clean the print heads each time, this will only consume even more ink. There may be a problem with the printhead having clogged up with ink overtime. I would get it serviced, or if the quote is too high, you might just be better of getting a new printer unfortunately.

With regards

If the printer is not worn out, one of the first things to try is to remove the printer in the computer settings. Reboot the computer and reinstall the printer software. This ensures that you have not gotten bad or corrupted drivers.

Canon ip3000 Color problem


This is a frequent complaint and only high-end equipment provides the necessary tools to correct the differences between display and printed output.

If the output is otherwise pristine, you can't do much about it, although if there are clear defects (streaks, etc), you might try running the provided cleaning routine on the printhead.

If you play with the brightness and contrast controls of your monitor, you will see that these can influence the color and saturation of what you see and the printer is not capable of seeing the same thing as you.
