Question about Printers & Copiers
Hello from Australia. I have a Canon i865 printer and generally, I've been very happy with it. Yesterday I've had trouble with printing images on cd's or dvd's. It's surprising as I've never had problems. There's a simply a smudge of " C " shaped letters that are running down the image in a vertical fashion. These are cyan in colour. These smudges have nothing to do with the image as they should not be there. At best one or two copies have been acceptable but the brightness has gone as well. I have replaced most of the ink catridges but realize there's a small amount of ink left in the larger black ink toner. Also notice a small area of the tray upon inspection ( and after printing ) has a light residue of which you can wipe off. Useing Disc Cover Re to create my images and Label Print. Please help Sabojams
After looking at a picture of the CD you were printing to, I see the problem. The printer is trying to print blue ink on the middle of the CD, where the hole is. The problem is, since there's a hole that ink is going through and getting onto the rollers in the printer. It's then transferring back to your media as it moves through the printer. It's C shaped because you're only printing on about half of the hole. There are two ways to fix this. Either put a round piece of tape over the hole to cover it (and thus the paper will be printed on), or change your image so it doesn't print to that part of the CD. I'd suggest the latter, as it will look neater when you're done.
