Question about Canon Pixma MP800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

All colours are faint. The black comes out grey.

I have had this problem for some time now.

My Canon MP800 printer only prints colours very faintly with the black coming out grey. This has a disasterous effect on photographs as they come out faint with a purple tinge.

Thanks in anticipation
John Kurcz

p.s. My supplier has been unable to help

Why does my Canon Mf 8380 scan anything handwritten very faint and non legible


Is the handwriting black ink? Colours come out poorly on most scanners.
You need to increase the contrast when scanning handwriting.

Faint grey printing


According to the service manual for problems with light print image, the cause can be the Developers or High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS). Other possible causes are given as: Developer roller is stained when the toner or developer cartridge is almost consumed. Ambient temperature is below 10 degrees Centigrade. Bad contacts with the HVPS or abnormal output from the HVPS. To replace the Developers you would need to purchase a replacement Imaging Kit CLP-R300A. Any problems in the HVPS would require a factory repair.

Header, page no. prints normal, as well bottom of page, but document body prints very faintly.


This is not going to be a fault of the printer. You dont say what your document is which makes it hard to answer. Bear in mind docs that are in grey are very hard for a printer to reproduce. try changing the colour of the print for something darker.

The print is faint. The lettering on the excel spreadsheet is Arial Regular 10, colour - automatic and normal font. However, the printed copy appears grey rather than black. Toner cartridge recently...


normally you go to printer settings and look for where it says page quality. make sure the page quality is set to normal or fine. this will make it black. if it is on a setting lower than this it will cause the printed document to appear grey.

cheers.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.
