Hello,

this problem is a ink issue. The ink is not blending, that's why you are not getting a good color.

Get another ink for your printer and the problem would be resolved.

Good luck.

Correct settings for printing on semi-gloss paper. I keep getting smears when printing and photo doesn't come out clearly


Well, it would be good to know why the photos are not good quality... like blurry or bad color or? Are you using a good paper? I have great luck with Canon glossy, and love the matte paper from Staples. Matte is actually easier and all around better color saturation, I find. I guess that you are using too much saturation of ink... see if your dialog box for printer options has a way to make saturation less intense. Also, I assume you are using the same dialog box to choose the type of paper. That is important, since different papers absorb ink at different speeds and amounts. I hope that helps... keep trying!

Hi. my photo printing results is not so good on normal paper. plz tell me vat is the problem. i want to print photo in best resolution on ordinary paper.i.e (Double A paper)


Printing photos on ordinary paper do not come out well because the ink soaks into the paper like a blotter. I suggest you use semi-gloss or high gloss photo paper for best photo quality prints..

Gloss or semi gloss paper stuck in fuser


You need to change your setting for media type, and media weight( you can use auto for this setting) but for media type you have several options. Bond, glossy, plain, etc. This setting adjust temperature for the fuser. You can do this at the front panel in menus.

THE PRINTER WILL PRINT ON NORMAL PAPER BUT NOT ON kODAK PREMIUM P


Ok,, thanks again for the additional info. I had the same problem at one point with my HP photo printer, it seems the electronic eye that watches for the edge of the paper somehow can't see/focus on some of the high gloss papers.

How I tested it was simple. I roughed up(wrecking) one sheet and ran it through, it saw the page and printed. after that I tested with semi-gloss and it seems to work better.

Give that a try and let me know if that works.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
