Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,000 some nozzle's in it. If the printer is not used for a moderate amount of time the ink can dry up and cause a clog in those nozzle's. You can try reseating the ink cartridges(take them out turn off power, unplug printer, power back on & wait for it to get done making noise) then proceed doing a printhead clean from the main menu, or homecenter->?->maintenance. Then after that do a calibration, print a demo sheet to see if there is any improvment. The printhead clean pushes ink through the nozzles to try to clear clogs. The calibration scans those nozzles to see which are avalible to use, and makes sure that all the avalible nozzles are being used. If this does not fix the problem you most likely need a printhead but you will have to call kodak; as they are not avalible in stores. Also you can try updating your firmware from kodak home center, or www.kodak.com/go/downloads

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

Color in printed pictures is terrible! All HP


try going into your printers properties and look for a print quality tab. One of the tabs will allow you to change your print style on pictures. Or the HP software that came with the printer should allow you to modify the print quality.

Color printing


To get the optimum quality print for your color prints of course everything has to be set just right. On your printer installation and print menu it will ask you if you want letter quality print or picture quality, make sure that you are using the right options in this case. Also be sure that all your ink cartridges are at least half full for print purposes. God bless you

My c65 prints photo all dimmer


Set up a picture with basic squares of colour using a graphics program such as Powerpoint. Print this picture. Does the printed picture look like the picture on the screen. If not, uninstall the printer, reboot, and re-install it. Try again - still no good? You need to get a technician to look at your printer.

If this basic colour check works OK, take a photograph of the printed picture and load it into the computer. Compare it with the original on the screen. The same? No - it's a camera problem - Yes? - OK now print the camera version. Any sign of this dimming? Yes - it's a printer problem - get a technician, as before. No? - I'm baffled why you think you have a problem?

Magenta Cartridge


I have just found a solution on the hp support forum that says:-

Common problem of scanner optics dusted over requiring removing the laser/scanner, uncovering and cleaning mirrors and lenses. See the attached procedure. Takes about an hour, no parts.

On the second message on the following link you will see an attachment that has instructions for the above.

I think its not printer or ink problem. Your monitor might be brighter so pics will look more bright on monitor and less on printer. If this is the case with you then:
  • Try to reduce brightness of your monitor, then make bright your picture using software which one you are using, means in this case you are going to save more bright value in the image file. Then print it.

Post your feed back please.

Horrible print quality


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. the first problem is the paper you are using hp photo paper is specialty formulated to be used with there inks. every manufacture is the same if you want the proper looking photo and you are using a Canon printer you need to use Canon photo paper because the paper is formulated for their inks. hope this helps to clarify.
