Question about Canon PIXMA IP5200 InkJet Photo Printer
Hi, all of a sudden my iP5200 has started to have problems printing out any kind of quality at all. The tanks are all relatively new, the head seems OK, the maintenance nozzle check prints all colors just fine, but when I try to print our even text files all I get is text in jittery blue , lines in grey, really wierd. If I print out the standard windows teest side Oi get a lovely four color windows logo and a few strips of black, but none of the rest. A few days ago I was able to print out high quality fotos! What could have happened? The maintenance mode head alignment throws an error after printing just a pair of blue and black blocks. If I try to print out an ascii text file it goes thru all the motions but nothing ends up on the paper.
I have already deinstalled & reinstalled all the drivers (v. 1.90b), reset all the settings to default etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
OK, problem solved. Complete deinstall of the old drivers (1.90b) and newe installation of the latest (2.0) drivers, plus intensive nozzle clean and Bob's your uncle. Seems like the text black cartridge or nozzle was not operating properly.
For anybody with color cast problems I can highly recommend getting a custom ICC profile made fopr your printer/ink/papaer combination - the results make the printer ina class of it's own. However you do need a software such as Photoshop (elements) which supports proper color management.
