Unload all paper. Examine the feed track for any obstruction- paper fragment - cookie crumbs. Take a vacuum nozzle to it and give it a good suck out. Now feed a heavy weight paper/thin card through. Did it do the trick?

SOURCE: Printing 1/2 page

Ok, this is what I found when I finally broke down and decided to take it apart. There is a bar with two cams on either side of it that are used to engage the print head to the paper. The smaller cam on the bar has cracked and no longer pushes the print head down on that side of the paper, causing the half picture. What I did was remove the cam from the bar, glue it back together, then wrapped it tight with thread (only one layer, there is a clearance issue), and put epoxy around the thread(to help reinforce the cam). Once the epoxy had cured, I reinstalled the cam to the bar. The cam did crack again, but the thread and epoxy held it tight to the bar. After reinstalling the bar and putting the rest of the printer back together, I crossed my fingers and tried to print a picture. Tada!! It worked!! I have since printed a few more and have not had a problem yet. It may only be a temporary fix, and nothing could be better then the original replacement part (if you know where to get it), but this has worked for me. Good luck and be patient.

SOURCE: half page printing

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Does the test print also print only half of the printer? If so, give Kodak a call - bad printer
If the test print works, try changing the usb cable.

how much ink is in the ink Cartridges?
have you changed the ink cartridge recently ?
You may need to clean the print head.

seems to look like it may be a manual procedure with the mg6150 rather than a computer setting in the printer properties. Look under properties to see if there is a computer generated head clean .

How can i get my pixma mp 620 printer to print on both sides of the paper


If the printer does not support double sided printing, you need to take the printed page and put it back into the paper tray upside down to print on the other side of the page.
If you have a document several pages long then you need to print a page at a time. The odd page on one side and the even page on the other side.

1) Under printer options make sure that greyscale is NOT selected. I.E. Color Printing.

2) Make sure page layout is set to 1 (Not 2 per page)

Check margins of page are set to minimum size.
