Poor quality printouts from my canon mp150

When doing a straight copy the print comes out fine. When I print images off the net or if I use the scanner or even photos the prints have terrible quality and colour almost like coloured in pictures. Can the printout resolution be changed on this printer and if so how please?
Thanks julie

How to get the photo fine pro setting off a Canon pixma MP 780 my printer is working very slowly in the copy section and printing blue.

Here is the link to the manual for this printer.
On the Quick Start guide, it says that you control the copy and fax image quality with the Image Quality button. If you do not know which button that is, download the Quick Start guide and it will show you.

Basically you want to simply push the Image Quality button until you get the quality you want for the copy you are making.

As far as blue printing, read the maintenance section of the guide and it should help you fix that.

When I print pictures from an email they come out very faded...Have used good photo paper and it still comes out faded... I have PIXMA MP150

When you select print, select the printer properties box next to the name of the printer. In here there should be a quality or resolution setting. Increase this setting for a better image.Canon (Skywell and G&G are good also) Should give great results, but some "alternatives" are very bad in colour.
Hope this Helps GM

I have a Canon FC244 copier. The paper jammed and I have found a long plate with 2 springs attached loose inside. I cannot see where this should be fixed.

Hi Canon copiers are among the most common photocopying machines available on the market. They are known for their affordability and delivery of quality photocopies of printed pages, and because of this, they have been used in various business and office establishments. Like most copiers, Canon copiers also have their own setbacks and issues, but these can be fixed easily once they are properly diagnosed.
    Issues.Among the most prominent issues with Canon copiers is when the machine produces either full black or white copies. Most users tend to think that the problem lies with an empty ink or toner. If that were the case, however, then they would still receive copies, but the prints would either have unnecessary lines or blurry images. When the copier produces plain white or all black printouts, the problem has to do with internal parts of the copier. Causes.The causes of the production of black or white printouts can be traced to one of two roots: broken corona wires or faulty circuit boards. If the copier has an erratic circuit board, it not only produces all-black copies, it also has a misplaced light/dark slider that has to be manually adjusted in order to produce quality prints. Diagnostics.You can troubleshoot the problems concerning Canon copiers by doing a quick check to see where the problem lies. If you are experiencing intermittent black printouts, see if the bias lamps turn on during printing. These consist of small lamps at the bottom part of the copier drum, where the transfer corona is. The lamps should be not be lit whenever continuous black copies are produced. Faulty circuit boards, meanwhile, can be diagnosed when you have to slam the top-down cover of the machine in order to produce quality, and not blank prints.

Hi there,
iR1600 are special machine that needs a little bit more care.

First, clean the laser unit and optics ( beneath copy glass too ). Then use some polisher and polish the developing cylinder and clean/replace developer cylinder blade.

Printer doesn't print well

Hav you replaced with original cartridges or 3rd party/refilled ones? This is a common problem when using generic/refilled cartridges. Let me know that first..

When you say poor quality, do you mean faded printouts, or broken print? Kindly explain in detail, so I can assist you further.

Printout quality

Check the Tech help line at Canon. If it still in the warranty period this is the route to go. Certainly looks like no user adjustment is possible
