Black ink is not comming out well when printing?I have used new ink and also gone into control panel to clean the printer and nozel, but anything I print with black in comes out faded and very bad quality.


1. try printing from another program, if it comes out good, check your software settings.

2. check your printer driver settings or reinstall/update

3. use another printer cable

4. print from/using the printer's control panel, if the output is bad, it is already a hardware failure.

When you print photos you print in Max dpi, for this no faded lines anywhere. Probably you have a problem only in black color in print head.
Мay be it's partially clogged or partially defective.

Problem with printing in black writing not clear and very faded.


It sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning. The print head is what you put the ink cartridges into, it's responsible for placing ink directly to the page. If the some of the nozzles are clogged up, it can give you bad print quality. Without knowing the exact model of your printer, I can't tell you exactly where to find the menus needed to run the cleaning. Sometimes you can do this via the "maintenance" tab in the printers properties. If you need any further assistance, feel free to let me know.

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.
