How do I fix double printing


Not sure what you mean by double printing.

Is it printing a ghost of what you print further down the page. Or is it mis-aligning the characters so it appears to have a shadow on each character?

How do I get rid of shadows on my printing from my HP Photosmart C3180 printer? There is an extra shadow behind EVERY single piece of text. It makes the whole page look blurry. It isn't as if t


I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.

Mfc-420cn alignment issues?


My gut feeling is that the printer's head can not move freely.

Check the round iron bar on which the printer head runs. It should be shiny and non-sticky.

You can add a few drops of sowing machine oil. This should last for a while.

Need to send your printer in for service sooner or later though.

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.


My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.

Brother DCP-110C multi-function, printed image has shadow/double image. scanner seems to work ok. not really use copier. i need to correct printer to print regular text/image. thank you.


Press Ink.
Press up or down arrow buttons to select Cleaning.
Press Set.
Press up or down arrow buttons to select Black, Color or All.
Press Set.

The DCP will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished,
the DCP will go back to standby mode automatically.
If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has
not improved, call Brother Customer Service

Can the 420CN print double sided pages


There is only a manual double sided printing avaiable:
After the first side was printed you have to turn the page into the papertray again.

Canon bubble jet printers can do double side printing but the back side black print will be mingled through C/Y/M ink!
