Is there any way to get ink to dry on the wrong side of photo glossy paper? I am trying to print my own postcards on my Canon MG5220. Now from reading a forum here, it appears that because I made the...


Hi Robyn
PRINTING ON REVERSE SIDE OF PHOTO PAPER

The only realistic choice here is for you to chalk this episode down to experience, buy some new photo paper of the correct type to produce your preferred outcome and then do another print run of the postcards.

I always advise, when printing on exotic papers and even when producing ink intensive printing on ordinary paper, to print a single test copy first and then study the result, rather than completing the entire print run in one go.

Because of the lack of absorbency on the reverse side of the paper you used, I would also recommend temporarily putting the printer settings back to regular paper and printing a test page, so the micro-nozzles on the print head are cleared of any excess ink. If the test page is not perfect, then also run your printer's Print Head Cleaning maintenance tool. Then reset the printer back to photo printing for another run at your postcards.

Good luck.

I hope this helps.

No problem, but don't know if the print goes face side up por down into the printer when faxing


Where you put the paper must be a little icon like a page with lines, if you see this put the paper face up. I am surprise you did not check with a fax recipient to see if they got it (Blank paper or the fax)

Which way do I insert the transparency into my front loading MP 560 Canon Printer.Shiny side up or down Thank you V


It depends on which side you want to print on. For transparencies, you want to print on one side only. Most likely, you want to print on the shiny side; essentially as if it were a glossy photo. Load the transparency so that the shiny side gets printed on. Don't know that part? Front loading printers are the easiest to determine which side is printed on. Look at where the paper goes in and where it comes out. Think about it; for single sided printing, the paper isn't being turned around inside; merely rolled around an internal roller, then back out. Watch what happens to the paper the next time you print on a single side. See if the top of the printed page came out first, or last.

The most common designs of front-loaders have the paper come out above where it went in. The paper curls around the bottom of the internal roller and comes right back out on top. Therefore, the printed side started out on the bottom, then curled around the internal roller and came out with the printed side up.

Most front loading printers have the top of the printed page come out first; therefore, the same edge that went in first, got printed on first. With that in mind, if you ever want to print on the unprinted side of a piece of paper (that is already out of the printer), obviously keep the printed side up, but since the top of the printed side came out first, you need to make sure the top goes in first to come out first for the back side.

Your Canon 560 printer has duplex printing, so it is a good idea to run your test to see what happens when printed on a single side, and what happens if you use the duplex-mode. For duplex mode printing, after printing on one side, the printer pulls the paper back in to print the other side automatically. Think about how much space is inside the printer. Depending on how much data the printer can store, either the first page is printed, then the second page, or the second page is printed first, then the first page. It depends on how the printer wants the page to come out. You can run a simple test and see exactly what happens.

Since the printer cannot easily turn the paper around, it merely starts with the opposite end of the first printed side when it prints on the back. If the top of the page came out first for the first printed side, the printer prints the bottom lines of the second page of text working back to the top in reverse order. As a result, the bottom of the page comes out first, with the top coming out last.

Some duplex printers can store so much data that the determine how the second page will look, print it first, then print the first page. Watch to see what yours does.

Worse comes to worse, mark a sheet of paper in one corner, insert it into the printer, then print a document that contains only the period character and see where it is printed. By knowing how you put the paper in, and where the period was printed, you can tell how to handle any situation. By the way, the period character was chosen because it will be so small that most likely you can use that sheet again.

How can I print on both sides of paper?


Unless your printer has a "duplex" feature, you'll have to manually take the paper out, flip it over and put it back in to print on the other side.

Close the inner cover, and press the OK
button to clear the error. The paper being
printed at error occurrence will be ejected
without printing the remaining data for the
ejected paper, then printing will resume from
the next page.

Faxing up or down


Look at the hopper. It will almost certainly have a little graphic on it to tell you which way up the document goes.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with lines of writing on, the paper goes in print side up.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with one corner folded over, and lines of writing visible only on the turned over corner, then it goes in print side down.

If you can't find the graphic, then experiment: Take a blank sheet of paper. Write "Up" on one side and "Down" on the other then stick it into the machine so the writing is telling the truth. Most fax machines have a copy mode - use this to see which side of the paper the machine reads (if you can't get it to copy, fax your page to somebody and get them to phone back to tell you which side of the page they've received).

Panasonic KX B520 does not ptint


I'm not sure if this will help, but we pulled my Panasonic KX-B520 printing whiteboard apart to find out why it didn't print. After a couple of hours and much head-scratching we figured out the paper was in the wrong way around. The printer was working fine, it just couldn't print on the wrong side of the paper. Even though the diagram on the inside of the paper bin showed the the print side of the paper on the outside of the roll, this particular paper roll had the print side on the inside. Answer? Put the paper in the other way around. It works a treat.

To see which side your paper prints on, hold a match or lighter to one side of the paper and see if it goes black from the heat. One side will, and the other won't (well, it will burn, but not like the other side. Use your common sense here.) The print side of the paper should contact the horizontal metal strip at the top of the paper holder bay.

Good luck. I hope my answer works for your problem, because it's so easy to resolve.

James from Canberra.
