    the printer reads the photos from the card and send them to the computer and will print them from the computer, it just won't read and print on it's own like it used to

Save the pictures from the card onto your computer. Then from My Computer right click on the drive with the card in, probably F: or G:, then click format. Make sure the file system is FAT and that quick format is unchecked then click start. This will reformat your card.

Move your pictures back to the card and try again.

Try downloading the images to your computer first, format them to a format that the printer will read, then print them out.


Hope this helps.

My Canon Pro9000 MarkII prints photos with a red tint


You probably haven't calibrated your monitor to show the correct colours, so in whatever photo programme you're using, you're setting the red tones too high. Test this by first not calibrating your monitor, but turning down all the red tone until it looks washed out. Print this and see if it's better. If so, set your monitor to a cooler colour temperature. If the result is no better, check your print dialogue settings to make sure you are using an appropriate colour profile. And, for example, if you're using Photoshop, tick 'let Photoshop manage colours' in the advanced profile settings box. Hope this helps. I doubt there's anything wrong with the printer.

Print colour mismatch with monitor colour


Sorry to inform you but it never will
You can come pretty close by trial and error by twicking the colour
with your printer software or if you have the money you can buy a very expensive gadget that you stick on your monitor and it will read the colours
and match it with your printer Close but not perfect either
Trial and error is the best solution

Colour setup for x4650


Make sure the color ink level is substantial for printing, otherwise, replace it with a new cartridge. Try to clean the cartridge nozzle - from the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Clean Cartridge > press OK. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Then try to print your file again to verify that the print quality has improved.

When printing photos i get too much red in the printing. If I print a test page it looks correct. Any assistance ideas would be greatly appreciated. I've already replaced the transfer belt unit and the OPC...


Please use any other program or utility to view the photos and then print using that program. If you have selected any colour palletes and altered it, try using the default one.
Also try to change the monitor if available in handy and compare the print out with actual view. If it is ok then try to use the colour settings on the monitor to default.

Printed colours doesn't match with monitor colours


Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
  • Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space.
    Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
  • Monitor settings differ.
    The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
  • Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different.
    Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour
Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.

HP C5180 All-in-one : Memory Card Error, No memory card in it


  1. Remove the memory card from the camera.
  2. Locate the memory card slot on the product that is compatible with your memory card. Figure 1: Memory card slot locations c01331721.jpg 1 - CompactFlash (I, II) 2 - Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure MultiMedia Card 3 - xD-Picture Card 4 - Memory Stick, Magic Gate Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo (with user-supplied adapter), Memory Stick Pro 5 - Front universal serial bus (USB) port (PictBridge-enabled)
    NOTE: Some portable USB flash drives with a read-only partition, such as U3 smart drives, might be incompatible with the front mass storage port on your product. These partitions are added by the manufacturer and may include utilities and other software. Refer to the manufacturer for additional details about your drive.
  3. If it is not already on, turn the product on by pressing the power button (c01324469.gif ).
  4. Turn the memory card so that the label faces inward and the contacts face the product. Figure 2: Inserting the memory card c01335108.gif CAUTION: Inserting the memory card in any other way might damage the card and the product.
  5. Gently push the memory card into the memory card slot until it stops. The memory card does not insert all the way into the product; do not try to force it.
  6. When the memory card is inserted correctly, the status light next to the memory card slots flashes and then remains solid green. CAUTION: Never attempt to remove a memory card while it is being accessed. Doing so can damage files on the card. You can safely remove a card only when the status light next to the memory card slots is not blinking. Do not pull out a memory card while the light is flashing green.
Step two: Print the photo
  1. Press Photo Menu . A message displays on the control panel with the number of files found on the memory card.
  2. Press the right (c01185072.jpg ) and left (c01185108.jpg ) arrow buttons to browse through the photos on the memory card.
  3. When the photo number you want to print appears, press OK .
  4. After selecting the photos, press Photo Menu again.
  5. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Number of Copies , and then press OK .
  6. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Layout , and then press OK .
  7. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Paper Size , and then press OK .
  8. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Paper Type , and then press OK .
  9. Make any other appropriate changes to the settings, and then press Print Photos .

Hi there, I have an Epson DX8450 and would like to know if i can print black without the other colour cartridges. It keeps telling me to insert colour cartriges before i can print. i only have black ink...


Hello weejohnnymc

The printer is likely going to want cartridges inserted (even if they're empty).

Install the used or empty color cartridges. Then go to your printer settings and choose to print by default in "Grey Scale". This will force it to use only the black ink.

If you get low ink notifications from your print monitor, you can either disable the print monitor or disable the notifications. Please, let us know if you need assistance w/ this.

To Set your printer to use Greyscale (black ink only) by default:

START
CONTROL PANEL
PRINTERS AND FAXES
Right Click on the printer In question
Choose PROPERTIES
You should now be at the GENERAL tab
Click on the PRINTING PREFERENCES button at the bottom
Click on the COLOR tab
Place a check mark in the box to the left of PRINT IN GREYSCALE
Click the OK button
Click the OK button again


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
