I print labels with my Microline 320 Turbo. I put a new ribbon in and the labels are so wet and bold and after sitting for awhile they bleed until you can't read them. I have the lever on the print head...


This results from theway the print head is striking the paper. If you have it set to NLQ. it will be heavy, you can set it to a draft mode or SSD:


Print the Menu Settings, to see what your settings are:

Printing the settings is the only way to have a record of

the settings.

1 Make sure paper is loaded in the printer.

2 Enter the Menu Mode (SHIFT + SEL).

3 Press PRINT (PARK key).





Print Quality

! Important!

Front panel settings for print quality and character

pitch are overridden by software commands.
The lights will always reflect the printer's state.


Press PRINT QUALITY to select:

NLQ: Near Letter Quality

• Highest quality, slowest speed

• Courier or Gothic fonts

• Recommended for correspondence

UTL: Utility

• Medium quality, medium speed

• Gothic font only

• Recommended for internal documents and high-volume

data.

HSD: High Speed Draft

• Lower quality, faster speed

• Gothic font only

• Recommended for drafts.

SSD: Super Speed Draft

• Lowest quality (12 cpi only), fastest speed

• Gothic font only
• Recommended for fastest output of drafts.

Super Speed Draft

To use Super Speed Draft (SSD), enter the Menu Mode and

make changes as follows:

1 Press SHIFT + SEL.

2 Press GROUP twice.

3 Press SET until DRAFT prints as the setting for the Print

Mode.

4 Press ITEM.

5 Press SET (SSD prints).

6 Press SHIFT + SEL to exit Menu Mode and save your
changes.

How to SAVE money using LESS ink when printing with your printer. In a few...


Hi,
The first thing I always recommend to anyone printing is to turn the default print settings of the printer down to draft mode black and white. Now you can leave it to color if you know you are going to need color often. If you print a lot of things just for the simple fact of needing it to read or see. Then chances are you don't the quality to be the best or even close to that. Draft quality is a great way to use less ink. By turning it on as the default you will be saving money with every print, and at anytime you go to print you can just change the settings of that specific print and it won't affect your default settings. So here we go, I will show you the easy steps to changing your default printer settings to draft quality.

Step 1: Click Start > Control Panel

Step 2: Now open Printers And Faxes

Step 3: Right-Click on the printer you use/want to change the settings on. Click Printing Preferences...dc97e68.jpg


Step 4: Click on the Paper/Quality tab at the top. Then click the Black & White and Draft "radio button". Once you have done that click the Apply button. Then click OK. That is it your all done. Enjoy the savings. Depending on how much you print you may or may not notice this. But it is a definite way to save on ink consumption/cost.

My Pixma mp 750 does not print as black as it used to. What can I do?


Several things cause that, print quality settings, good, better, or best. In draft mode all is lighter. Generic inks are sometimes not as dark as Canon inks. The printhead wears out as well and the black is usually the first to go. A couple drops of water on the pads where the printhead parks will help to clean the printhead and flush out dried ink from the cleaning pads.

When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.


Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.
  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.
