Grayscale printing problem

I have a Canon Multi Pass MP 730 combination printer, fsx, copier, scanner. It has worked extremely well until today. When I print black and white I have no problem, but if I print Grayscale I get a blank horizontal band of 2 inches across the page. However, I can copy without issue.

I removed my driver and reloaded a driver from Canon's website. No improvement, except to say that the blank horizontal bank changed locations.

Any ideas ?

    What is the file type of the document? is it a pdf file or text file? What application are you using? have you tried changing the quality of printout such as setting it to higher resolution?

Does it make a difference if I have a MAC computer? How do I change my printer setting to grayscale or black and white printing only on my Canon MP 510? Help, please.


Go to file, then down to print, when the print dialog comes up click on copies and pages and go down to print settings and change from color to black and white or grayscale. Hope this helps.

Canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK


Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Canon MP 730 no black


You can get the MP 730 for Data Bazaar for 120.00 with no shipping charges. Hard to pay 160.00 for a repair when a new one is so much less. Just FYI.

Canon MP830 - extreme ink useage


According to a service manual for a similar Canon printer, the grayscale printing should only use the Pigment Black ink PGI-5BK.

On fast it is 300x300dpi with 1 pass, standard is 600x600dpi with 1 pass and high is 600x600 with 4 passes.

On plain paper in colour it is meant to still only use the C/M/Y and again the big pigment black ink PGI-5BK, it only uses the smaller black ink once you set it to use a photo type paper in the printing settings.
