I don't understand the comment that your canon will not print on any type of photo paper. I own the same printer. I have found that the canon i9900 does not print well at all on generic photo papers, it does poorly on Kodak photo papers, good on HP and excellent on Epson. Are you selecting Preferences/media type, then photo paper, paper pro, paper glossy or matte. What version is your driver. I updated mine last year and it did not work, I still use the original from the install disk, which I have.

The colors should be close on plain paper as they would be on photo paper. Are the colors off by a tint or saturation, or are they the completely wrong colors (like reverse or a total pallate swap)?

Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

Hi

When switching from printing on standard paper to photo paper, you need the change the paper and picture quality settings in Printing Preferences.

Start > (Control Panel) Printer(s) > right click on the Epson TX121 printer icon > Printing Preferences > Main > tick Photo or Best Photo > under Paper Options/Type select the closest match to the type of Photo Paper you are using (see photo paper packet for guidance) > Apply > OK.

Use the same procedure to switch back to standard paper settings to print on normal paper again.

I hope this helps

How do I lighten color on hp deskjet F4400 series?


Explain what you want to accomplish please.

If yor printer soaks plain paper with too much ink, go to printer properties and change the media type to plain paper, and the print quality to Standard or even Draft.

If however you want to print pictures on photo paper, and they are too dark/saturated, you need to adjust the photos using some picture edit/touchup application - there are plenty of them available free online, or on computer magazine CDs etc.

Printer grabs multiple pages to print one. Prints in mostly green for color copies.


Go into the printer setup menu and change the paper type to default. If your using Microsoft Word, go to 'File" > "Printer">"Properties" , and change to "plain paper" or default.

The problem sounds like the printer is set to print photos which is a heavy paper type. The printer needs to be set for a standard weight paper.

Ink Color Issues


Did you change any of the configurations on your printer. Most photo printers have color settings that are media dependent. It sounds like you might have it set to print on regular paper but not on photo paper. There are a lot of settings that you can accidentally change on a printer so I would suggest uninstalling the printer then reinstalling it and see if that is the issue.

Cannot clean Canon i960


The print driver might not be sending the correct color profile for photo paper. Check that your selection of the paper type "sticks", that is, that it doesn't revert to plain paper when you click on the print button.
If the print dialog is not working properly, then please get in touch with Canon's tech support to resolve this.

FD73 Photo Quality


I'm guessing, cause i own a F505 and not a FD73......but, I dont even see a use for the F505 "standard" quality setting. It will stay on "FINE" quality always. I've got a HP 882c and it prints just fine. I use HP premium photo paper and the printer setting BEST. Are you using photo paper? Regular paper will bleed the colors around. Take some pictures on FINE and print them out on photo paper w/ printer BEST and compare.
