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)

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.

My mp830 prints and scans fine, but it won't scan dual side. it scans the first side, then starts to pull the paper back the other way, but it only goes a little ways (1-3") then the paper stops, like it...


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.

The paper jams up when the printer pulls it into print


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed throught the printer. The reason for this, in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

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.

Samsung 1710 stops after warm up


Chances are, you're getting paper jams.  Try cleaning the rollers (as indicated below.)  If that seems to help the situation, then you'll need to get new feed rollers.

Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers.  See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything.  Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers.  As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer.  Now you can reach the other side and clean that.

There is another way to clean the rollers.  Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution.  Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine.  Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.

Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.

If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).

Thankyou,
