That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.

Are you using genuine inks or compatibles/refills? Have you cleaned / aligned the print heads recently? Does it only happen on the second print? Could be a case of excess ink getting onto the rollers which then get hot and deposit the ink on the next paper coming through.
Also make sure you've selected the correct paper type before printing.

That happens if you put photo cyan where the plain cyan ink should be, also photo magenta is too weak to be used in the magenta slot. I've also seen generic inks that weren't the right colors.

Lines thru photos


Try to clean the nozzles with the printer troubleshooter. It will force all the nozzles to print at maximum quality and will clean the clogged nozzles. If the procedure fail, then try again. This happens when you are not using the printer for long periods of time. If cleaning nozzles will not be helpful, then remove the color cartridge from his place and put it with the printing head in warm distilled water for 30 minutes.When the water is coloured by the ink, take the cartridge and touch the printing head with a soft paper towell. If a clear line of colour is printed on the towell, then is OK, put it back in the printer and print a test page. If is not , try again with patience.

Noise and overlapping 'ghost image' on photos


It sounds like something causing the print head to **** e.g. lack of lubrication on the track, missing teeth form the drive belt etc. Use MS Word (or something) to draw a black, magenta, cyan and yellow square, then drag the four squares so they completely overlap. Then lift up the printer top cover and print it. Watch the print head and see if you can identify the cause of the misalignment. Let me know what happens, or if you don't quite understand what I'm asking, come back at me.

Please rate this advice if it is helpful

Canon i9900 isn't printing photo magenta


Use denatured alcohol to soak the print head. Then use suction to draw the alcohol back thru to the foam ports where the ink cartridges rest. Continue until the alcohol runs clear. Then use water and then repeat with alcohol. Allow to dry and re-install in printer. Use new ink cartridges when re-starting printing.

Printing black squares in word.doc


It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at www.preclick.com. It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.
