My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:

I have a compaq ij650 series printer both lights are vlinking and wont print it means paper jam but there is not paper in the printer


Make sure you check up in the rollers for paper. Even a small piece of paper will cause the light to be on. If nothing found you may have to reset printer to clear error.

Canon printer has no paper stuck, but yellow light will not reset


Remove any covers and open any doors and look around real carefully with a flashlight for a piece of paper that might be in there somewhere. Get a can of compressed air and blow out the machine. Make sure a paper clip hasn't come off and fallen into the machine. Don't be afraid to turn the machine upside down and shake it.

I can only receive one page each time


Make sure that the paper size set on the machine matches the paper that you have in the cassette. Also make sure that the sender is not sending legal-size documents if you are using standard size paper.

Is the machine giving any type of error message or code when the error light comes on?

Printer Won't Take Paper


I beleive that machine has two slots to put paper, try moving the tray to the other slot, for some reason it may have defaulted to that tray.

Hi, If that is the only light on (blinking or not), then you probably have a paper jam or a door open somewhere on the printer. Make sure both doors are closed securely at the back of the printer. Make sure that the toner cartridge is secured inside the printer. You not only have to just insert it, but you have to insert it until you can feel it lock into place. Make sure there is no paper jammed inside the printer or inside the rear doors. If you have a blinking light AND the power light is ON, press the GO button. This is also a sign that a complex print job was sent that max'd out the installed memory. Hope this helps!
