Re: Double printing

You need to re-align the heads of your printer... go to printer properties - then printer preferences - click on maintenance ... now align those print problems...

Why is my Epson WF 2530 double shadow printing?

Allen, that's very unusual. I've been using a workforce printer for years, and haven't ever seen anything like that.
What paper are you using, and what paper setting in your computer?
When you rand a nozzle test, were the nozzle lines even, or did some look kind of out of place? (a deflected nozzle will give that gosting effect, and "underhead cleaning" is the answer)

I changed two colour ink cartridges on my Canon iP4200 printer. Now it won't print colour. The pattern check does not print any colour.

You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.

Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.

Black marks on the printing

You could have a build up of ink on your rollers, and as the paper is pushed through it is leaving marks. It could also be causing your ghosting effect or double lines. By having your printer cleaned by a certified technician it should reslove your issue.

Hi there, I have a canon pixma MP460 printer, some very kindly (?) changed my settings so that everything prints in black and white, how do I change settings back to colour and black and white please


Just go to "Control Panel" double click "Printers" and right-clicking your printer model to show "Printing Preferences..." and select "Printing Preferences..."

On the "Main" tab of "Printing Preferences" window, uncheck the "Grayscale Printing" radio button.

Hope it helps.

Canon MX700 multi-function printer error 5100, double-lines

You can Try
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Double printing

Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.

Colour problem with printer

After you scan it, do you immediately print it in an image format or do you use word? If you use word i might have a tip that might help.

Before printing, click File>print>click on "Properties" and check that the grayscale printing box isn't marked, if it is unmark it and it'll print in colour.

Also anything is that, when you're scanning. After previewing your scanned piece, double check the mode, either magazine (which is in colour), Black and white or outline (i think)

That's all i have for now.
