Print job barely visible


Have you tried configuring the settings? I had that problem with an Epson Stylus NX125. I put in all new cartridges, went to properties and tried all options. setting it to black & white, then to color and the greytone. Printing samples after each change. I finally came up with an acceptable print after moving it back to color.

Check in the printer 'preferences' and see if it is set to 'draft' printing.
also check the -Advanced- tab for a possible -Toner Save Mode- option.

I have a canon ip4200. On plain paper, standard print, prints in pale, pale lavender/blue, with hyperlink in blue (clearly seen on paper); on high and custom, the print is barely visible, with hyperlink...


Ok so on reading this it appears that your are barely printing black.
1. have you tried a genuine canon cartridge?
2. have your performed cleaning on the black cartridge?
3. Start the printer and ask it to print something. While it is printing kill the power and gently move the carriage to the left. On the right side of the machine you can now see the purge unit. You will need a torch shining on the purge unit. check it to see if there is a paper scrap anywhere near or on the purge. It may be soaked in ink so may not be easly seen.If so remove it and perform cleaning again.
4. Clean the wipers on the purge with a dry cotton bud.

If none of this works then its looks like a blocked/weak printhead and you will need to replace it.

Good luck
