Question about Olympus P 400 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Cropping Photos I am operating a Mac OS 10.3.9 system and use Photoshop and whenever I print to the P400 it cuts 3/8" off the length of the photo. This never happened with OS 9 but I cannot get it to print the entire size of the photo. Foe example, a 7" x 10" photo always prints out 7" x 9 5/8". Any ideas?

Sure..check your scaling settings in photoshop, which is based on the size of the paper you're using.

Does it have a setting to allow you to choose to print irregular sized photos.


You should do this through software or an app. Some type of photo editor. There are many to choose from ranging from free to the very pricey Adobe Photoshop. Standard sizes print direct from the printer menu, but custom sizes are not apparently available (from reading the manual online). You can do some editing, such as cropping, direct from the menu, but frankly, if I am going to do anything other than print a standard size with no editing, I always use software or an app for my android. Doing these things directly from the printer never gives me good results. The screen you are looking at on the printer is just too small. I don't even crop this way.

The orange lights are flashing, is there something wrong?


Try:



1 Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
2 PPM print speeds are based on the highest speed printer driver mode. Photo print speeds are based on the default mode driver setting using Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy paper. Print speeds will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used and page coverage. CPM copy speeds based on fast mode setting using plain paper. Copy speeds may vary based on document complexity, copy mode, page coverage and number of copies.
3 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed requires Windows XP, 2000 or Mac OS X operating systems. For Windows 98, Me and Mac OS X v.10.2 to 10.2.6 operating systems, the printer will operate at USB 1.1 specifications.

Printing black and white photos from digitally taken colour photos


Hi Pat,

First you will have to check the Nozzle of your printer. To do this, press the setup button and select Nozzle Check. Use a plain paper to do this. Press Ok after that. It will print out a pattern for each color. Make sure that the lines are connected to each other specially for black since that you are printing a black and white photo. Lines going across is on a stair case pattern and should be connected to each other. Proceed with cleaning cycle if needed.

You can do a cleaning cycle using your printer of the computer. You can skip this if you have a good Nozzle check.

Using printer:
Press setup then select head cleaning.

Using computer.
Go to utility of the printer and find maintenance. Click on the head cleaning button.

Once that the nozzle are fine, you can now try printing. I strongly suggest that you use other application first instead of Adobe Photoshop. Since that Photoshop uses color management, it can be that the settings are incorrect. Save first the picture that you opened in Photoshop. You can save it on your desktop to easily locate the file. Make sure that the file is in jpeg format. Now to isolate the issue if it is cause by a software or not, try the standard application for your O.S.

Smaple Application:
Windows O.S. : Windows Picture and Fa Viewer
- right click on the file and select open with.
- select windows picture and fax viewer.
- folow the on screen instuctions.
Note: If you are now on the window on what pinter to use. Make sure that you set the option for printers under preferences to print in gray scale or black only. Select also the correct paper type.
- Proceed with printing.

Mac OSX: Preview or Iphoto
- open the picture under one of the application.
- click file then print.
- Make sure printer is selected.
- underneath the print option, you will have to go to print setting.
- find the option that says color then select black.
- select the appropriate settings for paper.
- the click on print.

Now see if it did print out corectly. If it did, it means that the appplication is the one causing this. If you are familiar with the color manage features of the application Photoshop. Let Photoshop handles the color. After getting to the widow what printer to use, to the the preferences of the printer and select the correct paper type. You will have to find the color management of the printer.

For Windows, It under the advance option under the main tab. Select off no color adjustment.
For Mac instead of going to print setting, find color manage and turn it off. Select off no color adjustment.

Then try printing.

Regarding your other question, If the printer is producing excess inks on your print out when ot comes to black printing and color printing, that pad needs replacement.

Heads off photos


It is the borderless setting that does this, cause in actual fact, all borderless does is strectch your image.

If you remove the borderless setting, you will get the heads back

Unfortunately there is no way around this. Just keep this in mine when taking your next photo's.

Printer: Canon PIXMA MP610 Operating system: Mac OS 10.4 Problem: Printing 4x6 photos is excruciatingly slow from iPhoto and Photoshop CS3. I thought it may have been something to do wireless printing,...


When printing from programs like that, usually the "BEST" option is selected for the print quality.. Try going into the preferences and choosing a lower quality.

If that doesn't help, for Photoshop, you can "save for web and devices", choose PNG and then save to desktop, and use another program to print the file. Or when in the print dialogue, make sure "printer manages colour management"

Not too sure about Iphoto print settings, but there may be something in there.
