SOURCE: kodak 5300 wont print on glossy side of photo paper

I just sussed this issue out. On the front of the printer tray there is another pull out tray, this opens up and must activate the photo printing for A4 because it stops the paper falling on the floor once printed (cos once printed on photo paper it may still be wet). As soon as I opened the tray (and it then opens again - you'll see what I mean) it printed A4 photo paper perfectly
Hope this helps others

SOURCE: r1800 head streaks

I have been plagued by the same problem - the nozzles don't appear clogged - yet on heavier media there is a definite abrasive sound - and its leaving horizontal bands. After many cleanings with no luck I tried cleaning the heads with a bunch of Q-Tips lightly coated in Windex. After removing a ton of black deposits - it didn't immediately fix the problem; frustrated I turned the printer off. The next morning when the clean-heads-on-power-up kicked in - I noticed a large amount of ink collected in the vacuum sponge. It seams the bit of reside left over from the cleaning may have finally dissolved what I can only guess was a large ink deposit that had hardened and was striking the media when heavier stock was loaded. At any rate - no more abrasive sounds - and more importantly no more horizontal banding.

To clean I disconnected the power when the head was traveling. Then the head was free to move as I gently tried using the Q-Tips to clean the heads.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.

Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.

  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.

SOURCE: ink from my deskjet 5650 smears off my glossy postcards.

Hello there jbaerpynes.

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.

Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to comment on my post. If I helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Thanks.

Hi Robyn
PRINTING ON REVERSE SIDE OF PHOTO PAPER

The only realistic choice here is for you to chalk this episode down to experience, buy some new photo paper of the correct type to produce your preferred outcome and then do another print run of the postcards.

I always advise, when printing on exotic papers and even when producing ink intensive printing on ordinary paper, to print a single test copy first and then study the result, rather than completing the entire print run in one go.

Because of the lack of absorbency on the reverse side of the paper you used, I would also recommend temporarily putting the printer settings back to regular paper and printing a test page, so the micro-nozzles on the print head are cleared of any excess ink. If the test page is not perfect, then also run your printer's Print Head Cleaning maintenance tool. Then reset the printer back to photo printing for another run at your postcards.

Good luck.

I hope this helps.

Photos bleed


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. most likely your problem is the paper you are using. you see every manufacture uses different inks and paper. the paper if formulated specialy for the inks. so if you are using kodak paper then you should be printing on a kodak printer. try using Canon paper you should be much happier. hope this helps.

Printing postcards


Hi, You can print postcards in either the manual tray (1) or Tray 2 . But if you have a tray three installed you cannot print postcards,envelopes, etc... I recommend printing them from the manual tray and what you can do is either in your printer setting on your pc adjust which trays you want to use for printingpostcards. Or you can use the printers menu and go to paper handling and manual select which paper sizes you wish to use in each tray.
