Won't print large font in solid black. Only prints outline of letters in black

Try resetting word to factory settings to clear all the settings, Then make a new document and type whatever you want with the font size you require, save then print, see what happens.

I have a canon ip2600. Its pretty new. it leaves blanks where nouns or pronouns should be. Plus phrases. Names of magazines and people. Why would it do that? Hope you can help me. Thank you

It depends on what you are printing -- some web-pages put clickable "hyperlinks" on each noun, so that you can click on any of the nouns, to get more information.

Perhaps, your printer is trying to print each hyperlink in some colour, while the rest of the text is printed in BLACK.

Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click Notepad
Type a few words and phrases, including some nouns and names.
Click File
Click Print
Is that printed-page 100% black -- do the nouns print in black?

My printer has stopped printing the letters onto the dvd properly

1. Remove lid/top
2. Move blue lever left or right to unlock ribbon roll
3. Loosen ribbon or tighten as needed -
NOTES: If ribbon roll is too tight it will show wrinkles; it should look smooth if positioned correctly; if too tight it will not print portions of some letters; keep re-positioning if this does not work after first try.
4. Use flat-head screw driver to adjust front uptake (used) ribbon-roll as needed to make it smooth too. Lift out & re-position, if you need to.
THIS WORKED FOR ME but I had to re-do my re-positioning of both rolls several times before it began printing 100% of letters again. 4bb240d8-5e9d-4611-9ca4-33b5883e40b9.jpg 5a5b4381-7ee8-480f-943e-041aa738011d.jpg c86d59ae-1b7e-4755-b895-08007064e847.jpg Journal Kentucky Lexington Monitor www jklm us

HP 1510 all in one printer won't print black.

It might be the cable ribbon to the black cartridge. If thats the case see if there are any rips in the line itself.

My printer only prints pictures, no text.

Sounds like your black pigment (PGBK-5) cartridge has clogged up the printhead or similar.

You could try running a single Deep clean on the that colour alone (use Right click printer > printing preferences > maintenance tab > Deep Cleaning)

If that doesn't work you will probably need to either:
- clean the printhead (see this thread)
- replace the printhead/cartridge

Hope that helps.

Print quality is very poor

I used to use an LX300 and have never had this problem. I'm not sure what unclear means so I will just do some guessing. Clarity of the print depends on 3 things, software, printhead and ribbon. These are your problem areas. Epson has an option to print NLQ or near letter quality. So that should give more clarify. I basically double prints the same letter to create a darker image. The printhead, if your printer is really old, you need to either find someone to refurbish the printhead or buy a new printhead because it could be the impact pins are bent and not giving the strongest image. Lastly the ribbon, obvsiously the more used the ribbon is the weaker the image. So either re-ink the ribbon or buy a new ribbon cartridge. Hope this helps.

look in the manual for alarm codes, on? flashing?

possibility something wrong with the carriage, this is the black piece where the ribbon sits on, there are gears in there that will break, very common

1) take out ribbon and print, if it continues to print a few lines without alarm, it's a bad ribbon.

2)turn off printer and move the carriage my hand from side to side, should be smooth, if you hit a bump or tick, it's the carriage.

The printer say there is no ribon but i put a new one and still it's not working

try to install again but this time make sure you follow the manual especially on step 5,6 and 7 I list down again the step from the manual 5: Load the new roll of print ribbon on the cartridge. ? Put the full spool of ribbon on the supply spindle of the ribbon cartridge. Push until the spool clicks onto the spindle. ? Put the empty take-up spool on the spindle with the solid black gear. Push until the spool clicks onto the spindle. 6: Replace the loaded ribbon cartridge in the printer. ? Make sure both spindles rest in the black supports on the left side of the printer. ? Make sure the ribbon cartridge handle rests in the supports on the right side of the printer. ? Make sure to install the full, new spool toward the card tray of the printer. 7 Close the printer cover. Press down firmly to latch it.
