Canon Pixma MX 310 print smears.

My Canon Pixma MX 310 prints and copies with smears eveuy seven lines or so. I went through all the suggested remedies in the troubleshooting guide, (exept reloding the drivers, which I donto think could be the cause of smearing. Then I went to try cleaning off th rotrusions. I see looks like ink on the foam that is below and in front of the protrusions. Might this be causing the smears? If yes, what should I use to try to clean the the ink off the foam? Any other suggestions?

You need to clean the bottom of the printhead, and use a Q-tip to clean the wipers on the clean station that is on the right side where the printhead parks. There are 2 or 3 squeegees there that wipe the bottom of the printhead and when there's too much ink it stays on the printhead causing the smears.

Canon mx 850 problem is when the copy button is pushed to make a black and white copy the printer acts as if it is printng color. Prints very slowly. Phil


I do not know the Canon MX 850 but it seems like your printer is set to default to high quality printing. Check the setting in your Canon software for something like this.

Duplex printing is set in the print dialgue box. You may have set a profile where duplex printing is automatic and the computer is defaulting to that setting. Make sure it says "Standard" in the print dialogue box.

MX-310 has fax's in memeory but keeps printing the first page of the first fax only. Screen says check paper size. When i push ok it only will print the first page over and over. How do I change it?


If your Canon MX-310 has been set up to print faxes as they are received, then what is actually in memory is a "received fax report". If you select a particular fax in this report, it will print the first page of the fax to remind you of the content.

Your Canon MX-310 will store fax documents in memory if:
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
