Question about Canon PIXMA MP810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pink lines when I print on proper Canon photo paper

My MP810 has worked excellently for months - now without warning it has begun to print hundreds of pink/red lines across the pages when I use any size of proper photo paper... The problem does not occur with standard plain paper.
However when I go to tools and follow the cleaning procedure and follow up with a test print out the problem lines show up as single pink lines either side of the second cyan colour block and the second magenta block.

I'd say your print engine is quite out of sync...you had this canon for a while?

Comment:
I've had this printer for over a year now. I have it set up wirelessly connected to my network. The biggest problem I have is that I have 3 computers in the household and sometimes, for whatever reason, this printer will not realize it is done printing from the last job and will continue to think that it is working. So, when you go to print to it from another computer, you get the Another computer is using the printer. Please wait. This will continue until you go and turn the printer off and wait for the insanely long turning off cycle, then turn it back on. <br /><br />Once you do get it working, it gives you great output for both text and photos. I have been doing a lot of scanning old black and white family negatives and printing them, and my family members thought the prints were from a photo lab. <br /><br />Bottom line: if you want excellent output and have a tolerance for quirky connections, you will be OK with this. If, like my wife, you just want it to work like an appliance, and find the locking up infuriating, I would not recommend it.

Comment:
As rated by CU, it produces very nice photo prints. Text quality is also good when set on standard but not so good on fast. It takes it's time to get started when you send it something to print, whirring and clicking for a good minute before anything actually prints. My main complaint is paper handling. I sometimes print mailing labels from sheets. My previous printer, an HP 7560, would accept a sheet with an upward curled front lip. The Canon iP7220 either doesn't accept it or jams up solidly.

Comment:
Tried brochure paper and spent two days trying to get color right. Used glossy and matte photo paper for great print results, mostly. color shifted for no apparent reason. First batch of matte paper worked great, others jammed every 2-5 sheets. Will not pick up matte paper sometimes, gets worse the more I try.

My Canon MP810 is not feeding the paper properly and when it does print, it misses lines and produces a very mess print. Can you suggest ways to resolve these problems. Thank you.


Hello.
Remove the cartridges, then the head itself by lifting the lever attached to the side of the cartridge holder. Sit the head part in a saucer of boiled water, making sure no water touches the contacts on the front of the head unit. Leave for 5 mins and replace in the printer.
While the head is out inspect the cartridges "bed" inside the printer. there is a sponge that the head rests on when the printer is idle, this can clog and leave clumps of ink on the head. if so simply place some tissue or toilet paper over the sponge to adsorbs as much ink as possible,
I hope this helps Regards GM

I have a canon MP810 it is coming up with error code 6B00, what does this mean ?


You probably have something stuck in the paper feed or under the print head.
First try moving the print head left and right with the printer off. If that doesn't work then, Try looking for jam in the paper feed and specifically under the rollers. A small piece of paper or other debris, like fallen paper clip, staple. postage stamp are things I have seen stuck in printers that cause jams and error codes.
If these solutions don't work, post comment here.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

It will print colors fine on standard paper, but will not print on any type of photo paper.


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.

Printer prints the snow pink


The Canon Pixma 5000 is an excellent photo printer!
Check that ALL your ink cartridges have ink and also run a cleaning cycle as your heads may be dirty and also do an alignment run: check your manual for instructions.
