Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Poor print quality .... Canon Pixma MP140 ...

Hi there .... I have recently set up this printer and when printing, the color quality is quite faded. I have been printing on just regular paper - does it make a difference if I use photo paper or should it print just as strong a color on regular paper?

The original cartridge that came with the computer is what I am using right now .... could it be poor cartridge or is there some other problem?

Please let me know if you come up wiht anything. Thank you!

Regards - Tracy Loveridge

Paper quality does make a difference in the quality of print, but it's usually in the areas of blurriness and vibrance. If your prints are coming out faded, the quality for your prints might be set to 'economy', which doesn't use very much ink. If you have it set for 'quality' prints, I would try replacing the ink cartridges.

I would suggest that you use the machines own ink jet heads to do a self clean and that should improve the printing

CANON PIXMA COLORS ARE LIGHT


I would manually clean out the printhead, I believe for your model it is a separate unit form the ink cartridge. Please follow these steps bellow.

First you will need to remove the cartridges, then remove the printhead assembly then mix some water and isopropyl alcohol in a 50/50 mixture. You can either use a cotton swab to rub the water and alcohol on the printhead or you can soak the inkjet printhead for around 2 to 5 minutes. This should loosen the dried ink. It may take a few attempts and requires patience. Dry it on a folded paper towel and reinstall it. Print a test page to check quality. If the documents are still printing with poor quality, repeat and soak the printheads for longer.

Let me know if that helped. I had the same issue and this resolved it for me.

Thanks

Pixma mx330 printing very faded colors


try selecting higher print quality setting. If it still prints faded on "standard" or "high" quality, try running the "printhead clean" or "deep clean" utility (under "maintenance" in printer properties).
If still no good, refill or replace cartridge(s).

good luck with it

recalibrate the printhead, clean the printhead. In the printer driver you need to select the right paper.

Hi,

There seems to be a calibration problem. Follow the calibration test from the manual.

If you are using original cartridges, go to canon for repair.

Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.
