Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

2 Answers

Color of the prints

Yesterday the prints were still beautiful. Today what is on the monitor comes out on print faded or a different color not like the original that
I have in the my adobe. The colors of the print are just not like the
jpeg image. My pixma iP6600D never before turned out bad photos.
All cartridges are full and properly inserted. There does not seem to me
a way which the machine self cleans or does a test sheet because I can't
find anything in manual about it. Please help me.

    This is a very irritating way to offer support. I about to change

    my mind about your products of which I own several the Rebet xt and my pixma printer and many canon lenses. when I have asked for help about the camera they were very professional

    on the phone. If you can't do better with the printer then I will

    switch back to HP

    I just switched to a Vista computer, not willingly. All my photos come out terribly faded, like there is a filter over them. My friend found a website where she downloaded a driver and fixed it. Then I unhooked everything to configure two computers to a router, and it is now printing faded again. She doesn't remember the website, do you know what it is and what driver I need to download to fix this?



    Thanks

Hi,
Try printer preferences.
START/PRINTERS/Right Click on printer/ printer preferences.
Gives you the various Options, print test page-clean heads et,c et,c.
If you have all the software and drivers installed, you should also get these options in the printers default Program.

Print is not clear , when we are printing light print is coming, we have already changed the cartridge but the problem is still there


You need to see if the problem is coming from all of the colors or just one. You can print an internal test sheet or just print something with cyan, magenta, yellow and black to see if one or all of them are faded.
If all of the colors are faded and you have already replaced the cartridges then check the fuser unit. It is possible that the toner isn't fusing properly.

Poor print quality .... Canon Pixma MP140 ...


Paper quality does make a difference in the quality of print, but it's usually in the areas of blurriness and vibrance. If your prints are coming out faded, the quality for your prints might be set to 'economy', which doesn't use very much ink. If you have it set for 'quality' prints, I would try replacing the ink cartridges.

Hi,
Remove it,replace it couple of times.

from your printer's properties, maintainance.

Check your printer settings for quality of the print.
there are various choices there for you.

Very slow printing


I'm not sure that there is a problem here.  The correlation between print speed and print quality, 
especially on InkJet printers, is a negative one.  That is, the higher the quality setting, the lower 
the speed. So, if you're selecting the greatest quality for your print option you will suffer the 
lowest output speed.  This is because the printer is taking time to ensure that it prints each 
minute detail onto the page.
 
If you are looking to keep the quality optimal, one solution may be to select a different grade of 
photo paper (or perhaps one with a different coating [matte, semi, gloss]) and test to see if you 
can lower the quality setting on these higher-end paper types and still achieve your desired 
results.

To get what you want from your printing paper, you will have to consider what you like in a print, 
how you intend to use your prints, and what you are willing to pay to achieve this at home. 
Some things to think about include: paper thickness, color brilliance and resistance to fading. 



1. Paper Thickness
When it comes to paper thickness, paper that resembles the look and feel of traditional prints 
will be the best if you like to print a lot of photos and pass them around. Thick paper just feels 
right in your hands and will also stand up better to handling. However, if you are going to put 
the majority of your photos straight into an album, a thinner paper may work just as well for you.



2. Color Brilliance
To ensure the photo paper you purchase produces good color, you can purchase small sheaves 
of a short list of photo papers which you think will suit you. Next, print a series of colorful test 
photos on each to see which has the best color. If you can incorporate colorful photos that also 
have prominent straight lines and people in them, you will also be able to check the quality of 
sharpness and skin tones in the same test.



3. Resistance to Fading
Always try to check the resistance of the paper to fading. Simply take your batch of test photos 
and tape them to the window that gets the most sunlight throughout the day. Then, before you 
go in to pick up a batch of replacement paper, check to see which photos, if any, are showing 
signs of fading. Any paper that shows signs of fading in this short time frame should be avoided.


4. Changing Your Ink

It is also important to remember that any time you change ink for your printer, you may find 
yourself getting dramatically different results.

Colors faded on left side of paper black and blue


Is it possible for you to clean the printheads manually with cotton buds and cleaning solution on this unit. Clean all thoroughly and this might just correct issue.
