Are you Copying (Using the scanner) pictures or Printing them?
Is the printer Monochrome or Colour?
Is the printer Ink or Laser?
Are you trying to print Photos or just Pictures like Clipart?
What software package are you using to print these pictures?
Your pictures should not be looking grainy. Are they printed grainy but look clear on your screen. If so then it's just your printer. Try forcing the flash in the highest resolution. If you video's are grainy too then there is possibly something wrong with your camera. Make sure your lens is really clean. Worst case your CCD sensor inside your camera could be bad. Hope not!
check the printer's printing preferences on properties option.should be set to normal then check the printer rollers if its dirty where the papers pass thru, if the problem persists load only 1 paper every time you print for the printer not to grab more papers.i think it is in the feeder and the sensor maybe its dirty need to be cleaned up.
make sure that the cartrdiges are properly installed use the clean ink cartridge utility provided in the printer drivers try checking the printer drivers. depending on the printer you may print the alignment sheet to check if all the colors come out properly.
If you want to maintain the quality of the pictures, you should get a picture handling program like Corel Photo Album. There are always sales on the software and on sale it's not very expensive. If you are just printing web pictures, you could copy the pictures (.jpg format works best) you want to print into a word processing document, scale and arrange them and print them.
Corel Photo Album works wonderfully with Canon printers and you have innumerable options plus scrapbooking your pictures.
Lots of reasons here but usually it is because the software you are using to print is not compatible with the operating system anymore. Example: you used MS Photo Editor which was discontinued in 2003 and never supported under Windows XP. The one function that is broken is printing...it looks like it printed but a blank sheet of paper comes out. (exactly what you described)
Instead, use MS Picture and Fax Viewer or the follow-on product, MS Office Picture Manager.
If you remove the MS Photo Editor application under Control Panel/Software Programs then your picture files will open with a different (more print compatible and friendly) program.
If your normal print looks OK, make sure that you are printing your pictures on the correct side of the photo paper. Most photo paper will only print properly on one side. If you print on the other side, the image looks very grainy and faded, and the ink will still be quite wet when it comes out of the printer.
