Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing problems After I select print, the printer prints, but nothing is on the paper. When something does print, it is partially printed or fuzzy. I did the maintenance things on it, but it did not work. It does show that I need to reset the value for H and then it goes through the alphabet--I can have it go from 5 to -5 if I keep hitting the buttons. Thank you.

It is printing but the lettered is fuzzy

Best practice is to indicate device, brand, and model when querying about printers. Solutions vary by such often.

The blurring could be caused by the type of paper being used. Or, too much paper being in the printer. It can also be caused by substances adhering to the ribbon (where one is part of the setup). Then there is a potential problem with a fuser in a laserjet.

For example:

Printed documents print ghosted blurry grainy doubled or with smudges What...

Making noise like its printing but nothing comes out on paper

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 4800 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

Handles paper fine but nothing prints. Carriage moves normally as though printing. No ink on paper. Cartridges are partially full.

It sounds as if your print heads are clogged. First try performing a deep cleaning from the Service menu. If this fails to clear your problem you can try to manually clean the heads but you may want to use Q-Tip's and Alcohol to clean the cartidge print head before you go to that expense.

The printer can not print any paper

First of all we need to check weather it's a hard ware problem or software so try to copy something or press a self test page by pressing the x button and the colour copy button together if that prints fine then it means that its a software issue now click on the start button go to control panel then open printers right click on printers and go to properties print test page from there if it prints a blank page then go to the advance tab of properties and go to print processor then select "winprint" and in next line select RAW now try to print

Thanks for sharing the problem with me.
Please first check printer installation:-
Start --> Printers and Faxes --> Right Click the printer --> Properties --> Print test page.

Problem might be Lose cartridge, Lose cable connections, Paper Jam, previous aoverloaded print que. Please Rectify all this.

There may be a hardware problem with printer itself please take help of printer technician in that case.

If this works, then start MS word, type something on page.
Click on print and select the right printer and print. It will work GoodLuck
Dear Guest, this problem might be in printing the web pages, please select all what you want to print or select nothing before printing.

Please see print preview to make sure that what you are going to print is rightly selected.

Can't print custom paper size on HP Photosmart C6180

Printing anything other than 8.5" x 11" I have found challenging but there is a way around it. When you are ready to print select Print and go to
"Properties" button beside the name of the Printer.
Select normal for your print quality,
Paper source select Main Tray,
in resizing options select the size you need. In this case you would make a custom or perhaps the Card Envelope 4" x 6"
Select "Scale to paper size"
under the Resolution button there is a box "Show preview before printing" I select that so that I can see for sure before printing that it is recognizing my special paper and not the usual 8.5 x 11 sheet.
If it all looks good and it should, START PRINTING

You have to do this everytime you want to print a special size paper. If you print a lot of this size of paper custom name it something easy like your name"Krissy card env" so you can find it quickly and remember easily the process you follow.
