From my own experience, you may not be using inkjet photo paper. If you have a photo printer or printer dock, try not to use the same photo paper on the all-in-one as they are not compatible. Try using any Kodak Premium/Ultra Premium photo paper to resolve this.

Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Ink smudging off paper


It means that the fuser is not hot enough to bond the toner to the paper. You should open the rear door and see if a paper has wrapped around the fuser roller, as when the temp is actually too cool it will shut down the printer. Photo paper is also too thick to be used in this printer and you should only be using standard bond paper.

Hi, like every ink jet printer, there should be an ink pad(spunch) at the bottom of the printer to collect the waste. That spunch might be full of ink. You could locate it, remove and try to clean it under the water. See if it works

Canon i9900 black ink smudging


ok, What cartridges are you using, Are the Canon cartridges?
What paper are you using, is it Canon paper?

If you are to both of these it could be wise ordering a printhead, but this is mostly caused in the uk by None Canon Paper.

Please let me know what you are using?
