Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

Teddy I have not used my printer for a while and I now have lines going down by prints. I have printed 5 pictures with no change. Is there a fix for this or do I have to buy new ink cartridges. They are all still full. Thanks

Simply run a few cleaning cycles....

5-6...make sure you don;t run out of ink after the cleaning cycles as you heads can be damaged if you try to print without ink.

Not printing properly


Print heads need to be cleaned cause they are clogged which is why even replacing the cartridges is not fixing the problem.

If the printhead can't be cleaned then a new printer is in order.

HP J5780 Problem-Line on printed pages


most likely you have a flat spot on the roller.
that is exactly what is going to happen, when the paper hits the flat spot or a low spot. the paper stops and skips. them the print is coming out smeared.
you can get a repair kit or replacement roller from HP.

Want to print pictures from camera card.


I received my Brother printer today (11/5). I also go mine mainly for the scanner because my Visioneer 9320 doesn't have any drivers for VISTA, and Visioneer isn't making any updates.

My camra uses a SD card. This is how I got mine to print pictures.

I place my SD card into the printer
I then press the PHOTO CAPTURE button The display on the printer reads CONNECTING TO PC

Then the display reads PRESS (up arrow or down arrow) & OK
When you press the up or down arrow, the display will read PRINT IMAGES or PRINT INDEX

I selected PRINT INDEX and then you have to press the OK BUTTON
The printer display then will ask 6 images per line or 5 images per line.
You pick what you want then you hit the OK button.

Don't forget to put the photo paper in the tray, upside down.

Hopes this helps
