Take off the ribbon and wipe and clean the area around the printhead, you probably have buildup there. Check the ribbon and make sure that it is in good shape and not fraying.

If you cannot get to the face of the printhead, you can remove it to make cleaning easier

When I print a glossy photo print, right at the end the printer makes a noise as if its labouring and there are excess ink smudges on the corners of the print. It only happens when printing glossy paper.


i think the problem is with your print head. i have the same problem before. when i put out the print head to check. there's a lot of excess ink. this may be the reason for the ink smudges on the corners of your print. and when you set your printer to photo printing. it is programmed to put larger amount of ink than normal printing. the best way is to have your printer checked by your service center or change your printhead to a new one. goodluck!

I'm trying to print wedding invitations on my Canon MP460. I'm using a cardstock thickness of paper and have set the ink levels for "Other Photo Paper" on my Mac. The paper has been going through...


Sounds like the ink isn't having time to dry and is rubbing along paper.

Paper may be too thick. If it prints OK on normal paper (test first) but not on thick card, then it doesn't support thick paper settings.

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

    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.

Ink smudging off paper


It means that the fuser is not hot enough to bond the toner to the paper. You should open the rear door and see if a paper has wrapped around the fuser roller, as when the temp is actually too cool it will shut down the printer. Photo paper is also too thick to be used in this printer and you should only be using standard bond paper.

Blue color appears pinkinsh/now stripes and smudging


Are you using third party ink? make sure your ink is xerox OEM. This will clogg up the inkjets and ruin the print head for ever, If you have always used the third party ink then you might want to get a new print head. . If you have used xerox ink then It sounds like the magenta reservoir has spilled over the cyan. This is caused by moving the printer and not waiting for the cool down procedure. Also you might want to change the print head wiper. If the print head wiper is over used it won't clean the print head properly and what that causes is for ink to build up and causes smudge. also make sure the drum maintance kit is still in good shape. (its the yellow roller on the right side of the printer. Well hopefully this helps .

Ink comes out heavy in spots on print outs as if you had a jam and then the ink smudges - ink does not smudge just heavy on certain spots


Sounds like you need to replace either the fuser or the rollers the rollers could have ink build on them and it would smudge the ink.

Canon PIXMA MX700 printhead immediately coated with ink, smudges


It's likely that the foam pads that the print head rests on when the printer is not in use are saturated with ink. They're to the right as you look into the printer: a rectangular one for black ink and a square one for the colored ink. If you power the printer off and back on, with the cover open, you'll see where the printhead goes to rest.

The pads aren't easy to get at, but you can blot them with a paper towel. Gummy, half-dried ink dissolves in rubbing alcohol, and you can soak a paper towel or a cotton ball with alcohol and wipe down the area. I've had good luck soaking the pads with alcohol, then blotting them dry with a rag.

Print out is dirty, there are smudges of inks at the page center


What colour are the smudges, if they are one colour you can try changing that colour toner cartridges. Failing this then it sounds as if you may need a new drum
