SOURCE: red dots on left of page

You need to measure the distance between two dots (In milimeters if possible). After that I may be able to determine what is causing the problem.

SOURCE: Print fading down right hand side

I was able to fix it by taking off the top of the printer. This involved taking off 4 screws on the top of the printer. I then had to disconnect the wires going to the control panel by unhooking them from the right side. I then located a thin rectangular box which I'm assuming houses the laser. I removed this with 4 more screws and turned it over. There was a little metal flap that I moved back and below was the mirror the lasers shoot on before going onto the toner.

In the same spot where I was having fading, I noticed a lot of toner on the mirror, so I cleaned it of, put it back together, and the fading was gone.

This was after I tried a new toner and maintenance kit.

Hope this helps

Well lets start with DISREGARD ALL THE ABOVE BULL in the above brainless clarification request first noted. Here's a little good advice for you from a 14 year veteran printer tech.

Lets start with the cheapest and easiest moving to the more difficult or more expensive. Your problem can be caused by a few differnt things.

Print a configuration page (on the printer menu press check button, scroll to info menu, press check, scroll to print configuration, press check. Once you have the look for the page count on the page.

Try fresh good paper from a sealed ****. If your paper has picked up moisture this will show up as light or uneven print.

Next if the printer is over 100K page count, replace the transfer roller (foam roller inside printer under the toner cartridge). Lets try cleaning it first if your under 100K or to see if it improves at all. Any improvement will verify the transfer roller as bad. Review the photo below as it shows the transfer roller end inside the printer. The screwdriver is showing where the release white clips are (two). Press the tabs and lift the left side. The right will come out of the hole socket on its own but note where the hole on the right is for replacement. Try not handling the roller with your bare hands any more than you must as oil from your hands can cause slight imaging defects if your hands are sweaty or damp.

Using a clean rag (like t-shirt material) dampened (not soaking) with 99% alcohol (not 70%) lets clean the roller. Gently but firmly scrub the talc and paper dust buil-up from the roller. Once you've removed the build up it should return to a dark grey color. Let the 99% alcohol dry (5 minutes or so)and reinstall.

Try printing again. If the problem is solved your done. If not and it has improved, you will need a new transfer roller. They are available on Ebay much cheaper than from a dealer. The part number to search for is RM1-0343. Here's a link to ebay for one at around $20.00 landed.

If the problem is the same, your problem is more than likely a dirty laser scanner lense. You'll need to remove the covers from the printer to accomplish this. The laser scanner can be located under the top cover. It's the larger black box on the top side of the printer. Once the scanner has been located, remove the top cover. DO NOT TOUCH THE MULTI SIDED SPINNING MIRROR TO THE REAR OF THE SCANNER. You will be cleaning the clear lenses and mirror towards the front. You clean this gently with a CLEAN and DRY Q-tip. Use a few Q-tips rather than re-applying a dirty one. Heck they are cheap!

Re-assemble the printer and try printing again. One of the steps above should resolve your issue. I am enclosing a link to a free service manual for your printer to help you through the disassembly and in the rare case that your issue remains.

Hope this helps you a lot more than the first response you receved. If so rate me with a FIXYA!

Thanks.

Printing blank pages


Hi Wendy,

This is known issue with Canon printers. Try the steps below.

Instructions
    • 1

      Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.

    • 2

      Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.


      • 3

        Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.

      • 4

        Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.

      • 5

        Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.

    Suhail

    Every time I print,the right hand side of the page


    Epson inkjet printer or Epson laser printer?

    If inkjet, then run the Epson software to "clean" the print-heads.

    If laser, then the "fuser" (which uses heat to bond the ink to the paper) is not working -- touch the paper, and see if the left side is warm while the right side is cool.

    Black ink not printing properly


    This could be a driver problem. Could you uninstall the driver and reinstall it. go into the printer and faxes and delete your printer and reinstall it if you have the origional install disk. Otherwise go on to the internet and download the driver from the makers site first before you uninstall it. You may have delete a part of the driver by mistake or maybe it got corrupt.

    . Otherwise there could be a problem with the printer itself.

    Try it and see how you get on
