Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

When printing, the paper is grabbed by one side and prints wonky. It seems to print better when selecting Matte card, but then uses more ink. How can i get it to print straight on plain paper?

On the paper tray there is a move-able guide, when you place a number of sheets in the paper tray you need to adjust this guide so that the paper is held in place with no sideways movement.....

If this guide is not in the right place the paper can be pulled to one side by paper pick up...

If the guide is set right and it still happens, get a torch and take the paper out of the tray and look down in where the paper goes.

There may be an obstruction in the side of the feeder.

This could be a small piece of paper or another object...

Correct settings for printing on semi-gloss paper. I keep getting smears when printing and photo doesn't come out clearly


Well, it would be good to know why the photos are not good quality... like blurry or bad color or? Are you using a good paper? I have great luck with Canon glossy, and love the matte paper from Staples. Matte is actually easier and all around better color saturation, I find. I guess that you are using too much saturation of ink... see if your dialog box for printer options has a way to make saturation less intense. Also, I assume you are using the same dialog box to choose the type of paper. That is important, since different papers absorb ink at different speeds and amounts. I hope that helps... keep trying!

Mfc 6490cw print is lightly black so print is not good whot is probalem


Black is very difficult for an ink jet printer. If you are using the wrong paper, it even is more difficult. Please use paper made for ink jet printers, because the paper can absorb the fluid better so the pigment is more visible. There are also different ink's you can buy, but please if it really should be black, only use the brand own ink. Not a cheaper version. Professional printers even use different blacks for photo paper and for matte paper (and ink jet paper). Just to microbe how difficult it is to get real dark black on different media.

How do I print in only black ink?


In Windows there are many different printer drivers out there but the basics for epson printers are when you click on print select your printer then click properties. most epson drivers will not allow you to print on glossy paper in black ink only so the paper options type will need to be matte then you should be able to select black ink only from the print options.

Is there any way to get ink to dry on the wrong side of photo glossy paper? I am trying to print my own postcards on my Canon MG5220. Now from reading a forum here, it appears that because I made the...


Hi Robyn
PRINTING ON REVERSE SIDE OF PHOTO PAPER

The only realistic choice here is for you to chalk this episode down to experience, buy some new photo paper of the correct type to produce your preferred outcome and then do another print run of the postcards.

I always advise, when printing on exotic papers and even when producing ink intensive printing on ordinary paper, to print a single test copy first and then study the result, rather than completing the entire print run in one go.

Because of the lack of absorbency on the reverse side of the paper you used, I would also recommend temporarily putting the printer settings back to regular paper and printing a test page, so the micro-nozzles on the print head are cleared of any excess ink. If the test page is not perfect, then also run your printer's Print Head Cleaning maintenance tool. Then reset the printer back to photo printing for another run at your postcards.

Good luck.

I hope this helps.

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope

Printing paper choices


The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.

Canon pixma mp 160


HI this is happening to me right now too-- try this-- I'm not sure if it's going to work-- but it's worth a shot.

On your computer, go to a print menu to print a document.
click on properties
go to maintenance tab
try the quiet/sleep mode

also, try going to custom and slow down the printing allowing for a little extra dry time.

reason I suggest it: my printer is doing the same, it's almost like the auto sheet feeder (only on the right side--why paper is grabbing weird) is grabbing too quickly. When in sleep mode, it seems to slow it down a little. I've also been printing 1 page at a time. I'm not saying this is a permanent fix, but at $50 for a pack of ink-- hopefully if you can't fix it-- it can get you to use up the last of the ink you have incase you decide to get a new printer.
