How do I get my Canon Pixma ip7220 printer to stop printing blurred lines?


Hello, my name is Steve.

This is an early sign of print head failure.

Soon it will give you an error code on display or ill be observed on your computer. The print head nozzles are not firing correctly. The only way to remedy this is to:

1. Have the printer serviced and cleaned ( the cost of the new print head and a cleaning and servicing of the printer

2. Order the print head online and install it yourself. The wonders of the internet can find an give you a video of how to do this.

The part number is: Canon QY6-0082-000 Printhead (Canon QY60082000 Printhead) I hope this helps, Steve

Canon Pixma 210 series has an error code 6000, won't print or scan


Hope this helps
With thanks to a canon tech 
Ok Well again I will repeat this answer with a titch more detail.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. 
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

Serving my Canon PC-6RE Copier.


there are some things better left for others to do. copiers is one of them. you cant explain in a paragraph what needs to be done and how to do it. there are alot of things that can be broken by people who dont know what they are doing. your machine is so old that you cant get parts for it anyway. you would be better off getting a new machine.

Canon c3220 problem!


Normal 0 I have a fix you could try. I ran into this problem when I noticed that the black printouts looked fine, but anything in color was horribly blurry, and you could actually see that the CMYK colors were not aligned on the paper. The following worked for me after removing and cleaning the ITB and all the rollers, and after realigning the lasers after removing the drums, neither of which fixed the problem.

First enter Service Mode, by using the physical keys and pressing Additional Functions, then 2 and 8 on the numeric keypad simultaneously, then Additional Functions again. In the touch screen select "Copier", then "Function" at the top, then "Clear" in the middle, then "DC-CON" near the top of the list. Then hit the "OK" button on the bottom of the screen. Then, back to the physical keys, press Reset, and then Reset again, and you will be back to the main copier screen on the touch screen. Shut the entire machine off, and wait about 10 seconds, and then turn it back on again. Test it out.

For good measure, you should probably also do a Full Gradation Adjustment at this point, by pressing Additional Functions, then Adjustment/Cleaning, then Auto Gradation Adjustment, then Full Adjustment. It will print and you will have to scan it a few times before it is done.

I have a canon 3220 N copy machine it copy in black an white very good but in color copying the colors and figures appears oblique! please what is the problem and how can we fix it?


Firstly, you will need to perform an auto gradation adjustment.although the chances of it curing this problem are slim. Enter the additional functions mode by pressing the head key, then select 'COMMON SETTINGS' then select 'ADJUSTMENTS/CLEANING' then select 'AUTO GRADATION CORRECTION' then select 'FULL ADJUST'. The machine will print out a chart and ask you to copy it from the glass, repeating this several times. Now, this is just a measure- your real problem is your ITB assembly (intermediate belt) - the belt can slip as the rollers are dirty when turning. Problem is, you can't do this yourself unless you really know what you're doing. This ITB assy may need servicing or replacing it entirely or in parts if it has done it's life.

Printer issues


If you are using Glossy paper, when you go to print make sure to go into the printer Properties from the Print dialog box and select Glossy paper in the type. This will put the printer into it's highest print quality mode.

So from most windows applications, it would be :-
CTRL-P (to print with dialog box for changes)
Click on Properties
Select a Media type of glossy photo paper
Select standard or high print quality.

p.s. you may need to experiment which if the media types gives you best quality for the paper your using, unless it's Canon paper and then just match it up.
