Question about Canon Pixma MP990 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I recently purchased a Canon Pixma MP990 printer. My primary need is to print pdf files that contain both text and small photos. When I print them now, the images in the photos come out with a fuzzy border that is quite apparent. However, when I used my previous HP printer, the image borders were nice and crisp. What print settings should I use to achieve a better result when printing photos within pdf files with this new Canon? Thanks very much!

    This problem has nothing to do with the (inkjet) paper I'm using. It's the Canon print settings that will make the difference, and I'm looking for some guidance on them. I've tried many combinations of these settings, and nothing has solved the problem.

    It's a photo of a still life object that was originally a jpg file, but through the use of an application, is now part of a pdf file with supporting text data. In the past, on my old HP inkjet printer, using premium paper for inkjets, the photo looked sharp. On this new Canon, I cannot get the photo to look sharp around the edges of the object. I've tried various qualities of inkjet paper as well as photographic paper, but with no success. I don't see any evidence that it's a bleeding problem. I'm sure it must be a print setting issue...

    Thanks.

It sounds like you are having an issue with paper saturation and this is causing your fuzzy borders.
Are you using photo paper with your cannon or normal paper? You also might try ink jet paper. There is paper for ink jet printers made to cut back on sturation problems.

Also what is the model of HP you have. If it is laser based you have no ink to cause a saturation problem with.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

    What kind of picture are you printing because if you get to much ink in the paper this can cause it to bleed together. Also if you take the settings back to draft this will cause the picture to look grainy.

No ink on print out from canon mg6150, please help


how much ink is in the ink Cartridges?
have you changed the ink cartridge recently ?
You may need to clean the print head.

seems to look like it may be a manual procedure with the mg6150 rather than a computer setting in the printer properties. Look under properties to see if there is a computer generated head clean .

Here is the download for your instructions:

A note about PDF files: If you cannot view a given file, you need to first install Adobe Reader. You can get the free download here:

Once you have the download opened, follow the instructions under the "Hardware Setup" heading.
It does not appear that the ink cartridges are at the back of the printer in the illustrations.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.

I have a Canon MX850, I don't understand why my big black ink cartridge is full and it uses only the small one, how can I change to use the big one?


The printer use big PGI-5bk cartridge to print documents and text.When you print photos or some other pictures printer use small CLI-8bk cartridge because this cartridge has a photo ink.If you print text and it print blank page that mean the nozzle on PGI-5 cartridge is clogged.Try cleaning test on maintenance menu on printer.

Two black cartridges required??


The printer does recognize 2 different catridges. My understanding is that the smaller is specific to photos,
but the larger is used for everyday text and pages.
I would get the cartridge and then wait to see if the printer
won't print photos when small cardtridge is out. If it does
print, pictures may not be good enough for you.
