Using Canon mx310 with windows 8: The printer works fine EXCEPT the font quality


I have had this problem too. It only happens occasionally, and I have never really sorted it. I have made a test sheet with the same line (including some bold and some italic) copied some 15 times, starting with a 20 point font , and decreasing down to about 8 point (Times New Roman)
Print that a few times and see if any faults are repeated on each sheet. It may just be wear and tear.

After cyan ran out, installed new cartrige. Printer produced everything colored blue as red. Purchased new cyan cartrige and the problem recurred.


The problem seems from your new cyan cartridge.
It doesnt print cyan ink.
Try to clean print head and test print for each color
from the utility menu

MP140 do not recognize cartrige


Ensure that you are using original cartridges.

Clean the cartridge sensor inside the printer ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton. From description it looks like a faulty cartridge contact.

The cartridge sensor is the metal plaque that connects to the cartridge chip, is located inside the printer carriage.

Printing color copies


check to see which cartridge you put in, photo magenta cartridges DO NOT work in the MP830. sounds silly but we see it all the time.

check to see if the short vertical black bar next to the magenta pattern looks ok, not brown or gray or streaky. if it is you may need a professional head flush, take the whole printer in for service.

Browns printing pink suggest the blue/yellow jets are clogged or not functioning. If the uses head in cartridge type[that is with a sheet of contacts on the front of the cartridge- then take then out ,damp a tissue in some warm water an place on a plate or similar - then stand the cartriges in the damp tissue until the tissue turns colour - then replace the cartrdge. If it is head in the printer Then take a look here www,fixyourownprinter.com
