    I just bought the MP470, and have tried adjusting intensity, brightness...etc, and still all photos printed come out very light and faded. Colors seem to be correct, just too light.

    Any help here?

    I have the same problem! Also, there are lines in the photo when it prints. The pictures are perfect on the computer.

If your normal print looks OK, make sure that you are printing your pictures on the correct side of the photo paper. Most photo paper will only print properly on one side. If you print on the other side, the image looks very grainy and faded, and the ink will still be quite wet when it comes out of the printer.

Canon mp530 - colors print dull and faded


The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.

Faded text every few lines- Canon printer


When you print photos you print in Max dpi, for this no faded lines anywhere. Probably you have a problem only in black color in print head.
Мay be it's partially clogged or partially defective.

Canon MP470 will print and copy but not scan


The same thing happen to me. I have Windows XP. Try using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard.

Connect the MP470 to your computer, have it on and place the item to scan onto the scanner.

  • Go to the Start Menu
  • Click on Printers and Faxes
  • On the left of the screen there is an area titled, "Other Places"
  • Under the Other Places heading, click Scanners and Cameras
  • Select the WIA Canon MP470 device(double-click) This should open the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
  • Click Next and you will be taken to the Choosing Scanning Preferences screen. Here you can select picture type. If you click the Preview button your device will scan your item and display it in the preview box. Otherwise click Next.
  • Click Next to name the file, choose a file format and where to save it.
  • Click Next and your device should scan your item.
