The HP1415 MFP make pale prints/copies.


There is no fuser oil in this machine. Using the display and menu buttons, perform a FULL calibration up to three times and test for improvement. Not sure why upgrading firmware would interfere with scanner operation...it should not, and that would be my next recommendation. Good Luck!

I have a canon ip4200. On plain paper, standard print, prints in pale, pale lavender/blue, with hyperlink in blue (clearly seen on paper); on high and custom, the print is barely visible, with hyperlink...


Ok so on reading this it appears that your are barely printing black.
1. have you tried a genuine canon cartridge?
2. have your performed cleaning on the black cartridge?
3. Start the printer and ask it to print something. While it is printing kill the power and gently move the carriage to the left. On the right side of the machine you can now see the purge unit. You will need a torch shining on the purge unit. check it to see if there is a paper scrap anywhere near or on the purge. It may be soaked in ink so may not be easly seen.If so remove it and perform cleaning again.
4. Clean the wipers on the purge with a dry cotton bud.

If none of this works then its looks like a blocked/weak printhead and you will need to replace it.

Good luck

Canon PIXMA iP3000. I have completed a nozzle check, but have odd results... BLACK-Perfect CYAN-4 EQUALLY SPACED WHITE LINES...NO DROP OUTS PALE CYAN-PERFECT MAGENTA- 4 EQUALLY SPACED WHITE LINES...NO DROP...


Inkjet printers do not like being left unused for long periods.
Some of the color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

HP 2605dn printing pale on magenta


This is likley to be the common problem (with this model of printer) of the laser unit having dirty lenes and/or mirrors.

Typically the magenta is the first colour to deteriorate.

To rectify this problem there's a fair bit of dismantling to be done in order to get the laser unit out.

Then you can open the laser unit up and clean the lenses and mirrors CAREFULLY. You don't want to scratch the surface silvered mirrors, or disturb the alignment of any of the optical components.

You'll see the same problem and solution for HP1600, HP2600, and Canon LBP5000, as they all use the same laser unit.

HP 7550 PhotoSmart Printer prints photos with an unpleasant green hue.


If it's a B&W or sepia photo, and you wanted to print B&W or grayscale anyway, pull the color cartridge (assuming a 2 cartridge system). I did that with my HP DJ 5440 and it works perfectly.

Canon Powershop ds600


Ok, there are two options I'd suggest here. First option is to get a card reader, and copy the files onto a memory card this way. With many cameras it's possible to use the camera as a card reader, but many Canons don't support this function.

The alternative is to burn the pictures onto CD. Most photo labs will print images from CDs for you.

Hope this helps.
