Hello ace002 and LauraJ. I already sent a long winded response but i dont know if it went thru. The drum 4 your machine is good for 55 k at best. Canon is great on their projected yields those estimates can be skewed by age(time) Typical drum failure results in black lines and background. I know I did not fix you problem but at least you are armed with knowledge in case you need on site service. Best of luck........Spinal

How to get the black darker


You can use Paint on your computer to modify it. If not it just might be the type of printer. See if you can buy darker ink at another store. If not your pretty much stuck like that. You can also go to copy stores or most major stores to get stuff copied for free or cost....

Inställning? finepix_s5000_digital_camera When I print an image on paper that I have taken, I get a gray background. Not white. Why? Please help me! Thanks, Bibbi


Not really a solution yet but we really don't know if the problem is with your camera or your printer. If you can, remove your memory card and take it to your nearest photo retailer (I like WalMart). Ask the technician there to help you make a photo of the offending image. If the background is gray on the new photo, the problem is with your camera. If not, it is likely your printer.
Your camera may have settings that can be adjusted as well.
Also, if you're using standard copy paper instead of photo paper to print your picture, there may be color issues as well.
Hope this helps.

Why do my pictures look faded with up and down stripes?


Check the paper to make sure you are using the correct paper type for the project. If the paper is too fibrous, the ink applied by the printer might not fully cover the print surface.
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Pring . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Press and hold the asterisk (* ) and pound (# ) buttons on the product control panel.
  1. When the control panel reads *******#######, release the asterisk (* ) and pound (# ) buttons.
  2. Press the 3 , 2 , and 9 buttons, in that order.
  3. Press the right arrow button (c00420524.gif ) to select Special Reports , and then press OK .
  4. Press the right arrow button (c00420524.gif ) to select Print Cartridges , and then press OK

When I print pics off my pic file, the pic comes out in a mirror image? I am using a HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One Printer. Also when I try to print 4x6 pics from my files using proper HP paper, it tells...


Hello,

When you go to print something next time, click on Preferences on the Print window. Click on the Advanced tab. There should be a Mirror Image choice and it probably says ON. Click on the ON and change it to OFF with the drop-down menu. Click OK. That should correct the mirror image problem.

As for the paper, I have a hard time printing on 4X6 paper too. Seems to be a common problem with HP. If you would like to accept the mirror image solution and post a separate on, you should get another expert to help you.

In the meantime I will try to research it further.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PRINT IS BLURRY


The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your 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.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.
