While this may be a mechanical fault, and if so a service call is going to be required to fix it, it can frequently be caused by software settings for the printer drivers or for the software being used at the time the photo is being printed.

When you select print from the software the usual response is for the printer driver's dialog box to appear. Within that box is a radio button which is usually marked "Page Setup". Selecting that button will access settings for various paper types [which can effect the problem you are having if the wrong one is high-lighted] as well as various other feature settings which can effect the printers output.

The support website for your specific printer should have information on what settings to change to realize desired results.

In software, like Photoshop for instance, settings for image size can effect the printed end result if the settings are a mismatch between photo size selected and the photo paper being used [unless there is a "fit to paper" option checked in the aforementioned printer driver page setup dialog box]. Like having those settings set to print an eight by ten print on four by six paper, for example. These settings should be checked to make sure your selected photo print size matches the paper you are printing on.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: HP c5280 only prints green

This Problem is based on the Color Management so , The Perfect Solution for this problem is open the Photo or image etc in Adobe PhotoShop then goto Enhance->Adjust Color->Remove Color Cast , after removing the color cast , create a new layer for adjusting brightness , contrast & etc , then finally goto Image Size and change the DPI from 72 to 300 then save the image as JPEG or PNG etc , after saving the image close the Photoshop and open the image using Windows Photo Viewer and take the printout which will come as it is in the System

Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray


If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray. I hope this helps.

When I print 1 copy from my laptop, it will not stop printing many copies and I tried to copy a photo and there are horizontal lines on the copy. Jacques


The numbers of copies your laptop print out is set in your printer software.
You did probably forget to change the numbers to 1 (one copy).

If you use normal print paper for photos, it will almost always make horizontal lines.
Use photo print paper instead, then it won't happen.

It could also be that your print cartridges need a nozzle cleaning.
Normally your printer software has a mode to this.

Hope this will help you

PICTURE IS SMUGGED


If you're printing on photo paper, make sure you are printing on the correct side. Most photo paper has only one side to print on, the other side is a non-porous backing, and ink will sit on the surface until it dries (15 - 30 minutes, depending on temperature and humidity). And it won't look good even when it dries.

If you're printing on the correct side, try a different brand/type of photo paper.

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

Lexmark Z53 prints photos on 'normal' but enlongates image on 'best'


I'm getting around the problem by using Windows or Nero print options to get the photo as near to the size I need. It would be good if I could print photo's from Photo studio though much simpler and less time consuming.

NO PRINT HEAD


First remove cartridges and remove print head and make sure the contacts on back of head look clean. I use fibreglass pen and give clean if in doubt.But be very carefull cleaning. But maybe not seated correctly.? If you pull the print head out and do another test does it come up with same message.?
Try again and see what you get. Still worth replacing head if faulty as where else can you get a 8 ink printer. Unsure what head costs.
