Paper jams after printing 1/3 page. continue s to print on on wrinkled paper until file is totally printed


The rollers need cleaning. Office supply stores carry cleaning paper. It's sticky on both sides. Run it thru without printing on it. That should fix it.

Black ink won't print and I just changed the ink


Try using the photo paper option instead of the plain paper option.

I was using plain paper but, selecting the plain paper option...I could barely read the print. The photo paper option worked great!

Hope it helps!

When I print on regular paper, the color prints look fine. When I print on photo paper, I get a consistent quarter-inch vertical orange line on the prints and the colors look washed out. Time for new...


Hi

Basics first (which you may have already considered).

Explore the Canon Printer software settings.

You need to adjust the Printing Preferences when switching from paper printing to photo paper printing.

Also look at the Print quality and colour saturation settings and try to print in Fine or High Quality when printing on photo paper

If none of the solve the problem, check if something is not stuck in the paper input tray and pressing the photo paper to close agasinst the scanner.

Make sure the paper is properly centered and cradled with the addjusble paper guide on the In Tray.

If tall new none of this works, install new cartridges and conduct Nozzle Check and Print Head Cleaning maintenance and then test print again.

I hope this helps.

Do I need a special paper for this printer?


no not necessarily. I suggest you align your printer tray in such a way that it will instantly insert the paper and print it successfully. Otherwise the problem is maybe the unit itself or the drivers..

Photos come out totally blurred with colors mixed. Happens on all sizes of paper (photo quality).


  1. Make sure that there is letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Self-Test Report . A self-test report prints. Figure 1: Self Test Diagnostic Pagec01154260.png
  5. In the Print Quality Pattern section on the test page, look at the color blocks for any lines. Figure 2: Print Quality Patternc01154261.png
  6. If there is no color bleeding in the Print Quality Pattern color blocks, print a document to determine if the issue has been resolved.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step three. Step three: Check the paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step four. Step four: Check the printer settings
  1. In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure that your printer is selected and then click Preferences . The printer Preferences window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. The Printing Shortcuts tab lists most printing needs, but you might need to modify some of the options. Options on the Printing Shortcuts tab:
    • General Everyday Printing
    • Photo Printing-Borderless
    • Photo Printing-With White Borders
    • Fast/Economical printing
    • Presentation printing
    • Two-sided (Duplex) Printing

    NOTE: These general printing shortcuts have pre-selected settings.
  5. To change the settings from the ones that are available on the Printing Shortcuts tab, click the Features or Color tab. Options on the Features or Color tab include:
    • Print quality : If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, select it rather than Automatic.
    • Paper size : Make sure this matches your paper.
    • Print in Grayscale : Print a document in shades of gray.
    • Orientation : Specify how the document is positioned on the page.
    • Paper Source : Select the tray that you want to use for printing.
    • Two sided printing : Print on both sides of the paper.
    • Color Management : Specify the color space that the printer will use to interpret image data.
    • Pages per Sheet : Specify the number of pages of the document to print on each sheet.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step five. Step five: Clean the printhead
NOTE: Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily because this wastes ink and shortens the life of the ink nozzles on the printhead.
  1. Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Clean Printhead . The HP All-in-One cleans the printhead and prints a test page.
Step six: Service your productIf you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product

Brother printer problem


Manual Feed Command.
1. Press the Job Cancel button to cancel the print job. Delete the print
job in the print queue on the computer. You can quickly access the print queue by double clicking the Printer icon in the task
tray or dock.

2. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.
Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button
until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

4. Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.

5. Press the GO button 8 times. The green Status LED will flash briefly
while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Status LED
will be lit green.

6. Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times. If
the Print Settings pages do not print and the Paper LED is on again skip
to the next section - No Paper in the Paper Cassette.

If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing
from your computer. The Paper Source of the Brother printer driver or
program you are printing from may be set to MP Tray or Manual, instead
of Auto Select, Tray 1, or Tray 2 (if the optional paper tray is
installed). To check the Paper Source setting of most programs, click
File and Page Setup or Page Layout. You may need to click the Paper
Source tab or Paper tab depending on your software application. Verify
that in the Paper Source section does not list MP Tray or Manual. Choose
Auto Select, or another relevant source such as Tray 1. Click OK. Try printing the document again.


No paper in the paper cassette.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

2. Insert the letter or legal size paper into the paper tray with the
top edge of the paper first and the print side down. Make sure that the
paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. If using a
paper size other than letter or legal, the paper should be loaded in the
MP Tray. The MP Tray can print on paper from 2.75 in. by 4.57 in. up to8.5 in. by 16 in.

3. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper
guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in
the slots. For legal size paper, press the lever located at the back of
the tray and pull out of the back of the open tray.

4. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer. Press the GO
button. If the alarm clears, no further troubleshooting is needed. If
the alarm continues, follow the steps below.


Paper Jam at Paper Pick-up.
1. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.

2. Remove the paper cassette from the printer.

3. Elevate the front of the printer slightly to locate the jammed
paper.

4. Gently remove the jammed paper.

5. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer.

6. Turn the printer power switch ON. If the alarm clears, no further
troubleshooting is needed.

Printing from pc to printer


You need to set the paper size in page setup everytime you change paper size you want to print to. Other than that you need to enlarge your print size within the program you are using.

Can't print onto thick card


Have you tried specifying the paper type and weight INSTEAD of the tray. Set the tray properties first, then print. If you leave it on auto tray it will use the tray that matches your paper type and weight.
