I have a Canon i9900 printer. I have used the daylights out of it. Can printers start to print blurry if they are wearing out? My prints look fine at 100% on the monitor, and when I print the picture it...
Problem : Ink does not eject properly or Printing is blurred or Colors are Wrong or White streaks appear.
Cause 1 : Ink tank is not seated properly or the ink tank is empty.
Action : Check that the ink tanks are firmly seated in the print head and reseat them, if necessary.
Check that the correct ink tanks are installed and that they are in correct order.
Check to see if all the orange tape has been peeled off. If a part of the orange tape remains, remove it thoroughly.
If an ink tank is empty, replace the ink tank.
Cause 2 : Print head is misaligned.
Action : Align the Print head.
Cause 3 : Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Action Print the nozzle check pattern to check for uneven ink output.
When specific color is missing from the nozzle check pattern, clean the print head.
Cause 4 : paper is not loaded with the print side up.
Action : Checl that your paper is loaded with the correct print side facing up.
Note: Follow the instructions packaged with your specialty media for loading and handling.
Cause 5 : Incorrect paper type.
Action : Windows : On the Main tab of the printer driver, confirm that the selected Media Type matches the paper loaded.
Mac : In the Print dialog box of the printer driver, select Quality &
Media from the popup menu, and then confirm that the selected Media Type matches the paper loaded.
Cause 6 : Glossy photo paper other than the Canon specialty media is used.
Action : Select Other Photo Paper from Media Type. It may resolve the problem. Load one sheet at a time and remove each sheet as soon as it is printed.
Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Have a good day.
