Lexmark Z53 prints photos on 'normal' but enlongates image on 'best'
When printing photos, my Z53 prints the correct dimentions but with the expected lines showing on 'normal' but on 'best' prints a good photo quality image but enlongates the image. I've changed everything I can change and even changed the image size to the exact size I want it to print before printing, but it does the same thing. I'm using Photo studio 5 for editing and printing photos etc and didn't have the same problem with my Z706 before it stopped working. I'm at a loss. It printed a few photos on 'best' fine then started to enlongate them.
I can print on 'best' with windows print wizard but the options are to limited for my work.

I'm getting around the problem by using Windows or Nero print options to get the photo as near to the size I need. It would be good if I could print photo's from Photo studio though much simpler and less time consuming.

Printing a photo but not getting it upto your expectation.....?? No worries just fiddle a little bit with the printing options and keep in mind some important points that I am going to tell you....it will help:
1) RESOLUTION OF THE IMAGE TO BE PRINTED... Always keep in mind while printing a digital printout that the resolution should be best fitted i.e. of the original photo.... if you stretch A photo too much or squeeze you might not get the desired result. It depends upon the DPI i.e dots per inch that appear on the paper in the snap that you print. To get a quality print you must make sure to select proper dpi for an image in printing. Eg. for printing a snap of 300 dpi you must choose the image resolution as 600 dpi, but in case of professionally required image quality you can select upto 24oo dpi.
2) PRINTING PAPER ... Make sure that the paper you are using is suitable for the ink and the printer that you are using. Certain printers specially design Photo Paper suitable for the ink used in them for eg. HP printers do have Hp photo papers to give a good quality of image.
3) SETTINGS IN THE PRINTER... You can adjust the image quality that you want by clicking on the Properties Option in the printer dialog box that opens when you give a print command. for eg. you can select Economy mode for saving the ink (but this will not give a good quality image as colors to will be low), or you can use the Bes option, as suitable for you...
So next time you Print a photo or snap of yourself make sure to remember these points and have fun.....
First I would start from scratch.... Remove printer in control panel by deleting then run the add new printer set up wizard and follow the easy install steps...If still not printing you need to run the maintenance program on printer.. Remove the ink cartridges and reinstall making sure they are fully seated in the carriage..Then clean print nozzles,align page and then try to print a test page....if it still doesnt print make sure printer is communicating with computer..if it isnt then check that you are connected to the correct port ...Good Luck!!!!
Hi, I understand that you need to uninstall the software and reinstall, could you please downlaod the following Drivers from HERE and let me know if this fixes the problem. Please Select the correct Operating System and download.
Check on your color (not mono) ink levels. If they are low, this could cause this.
Technical info: On this printer, envelope text is printed in "composite black" which means we mix the colored inks to make black. This is done for envelopes and not letters because of the ink properties which resist water and smear. If one of the colors is low, you'll get something other than black.
