Lines on a photo when printed

The print quality usually depends on the program you're using to print them on your pc.
Your camera only ever sends photos to your printer, so the best settings are already selected by the camera and it's built-in photo program.
Your printer doesn't 'know' whether your printing a document or a photo, so the settings for each program on your computer are basic (known as default settings), and need to be changed by you to get the best from your printer
Find the settings that let you alter the printers options (in Word, it's FILE \ PRINT \ PROPERTIES), and make sure the printer output is set to maximum quality, and that photo paper is selected as the paper type.
Some options such as 'maximum quality' only appear when you've chosen 'photo paper', and some printers (such as the ip4300) have seperate options for gloss or matte paper, so go through all of them until you see what you need.

Hope that helps :)

IP4300canon printer

The problem is that the ridiculously cheap little plastic piece on the door hinge that is supposed to trip the switch that tells the printer that the door is open is either a) broken off or b) no longer aligned so that it pushes the switch all the way. I solved the problem by removing the top cover and gluing the switch open with super glue.

To open the cover, find yourself a small, flat piece of metal (or stiff plastic) about 1/2" wide and a few millimeters thick. (A very flat-bladed screwdriver will do, but I made myself one out of the non-sharp side of a straight-edge razor blade.) Push this into the 5 slots marked with an arrow around the sides and back of the printer (they're toward the bottom of the sides.) Pry up on the cover at the back and then pull straight up on the front. There are two flat vertical pieces that slide into slots at the front that have to come up - they were tough to make come loose, just try not to break them off.

Pick up the electronic control panel that is on the front right of the printer. (You might have to remove the silver piece of plastic at the right front corner. It pulls straight up to remove.) The switch is the little black plastic piece on the left side of the electronic control panel. Push it to the "open" position (opposite the resting position) and glue it in place. Reassemble your printer and voila! no more annoying "door closed" message!

Prints purple instead of black

Seems like you have a similar problem to the 'orange' print, although if the print starts out black and turns purple, this may be down to the printer not working properly, rather than the software or drivers. If so, it's worth checking with the shop you bought from whether the Canon warranty is still valid.

The following might help if it's a driver \ software problem:
Download the latest drivers and software from the Canon website.

Before you install them (before you double-click the stuff you've downloaded), un-install all of your printer software then shut down your computer, even if the un-install program doesn't tell you to.

Switch off your printer, then unplug the usb cable from the printer (not the pc).

When the computer restarts, install the new software and drivers exactly the same way as in the original instructions that came with the printer.

Only turn the printer on and plug the usb cable in when the instructions tell you to.

If this doesn't work, the printer may be faulty. If you contact the dealer you bought it from, they may have a warranty running with Canon that lasts more than the guarantee period. It's worth a try, though you may have to pay for a courier to pick up and bring back your printer.

My printer will not print black ! it prints every other colour, but not black. I changed the ink cartridge and i cleaned the heads. What else can i do? It has been a loyal printer until today. please

Hi you mentioned that the Ink is new and that you have cleaned the ink heads, have you checked if the silicon Film for the ink cartridge contact was removed?if that film is not removed cleaning the printer head will still not detect the ink cartridge for the Black on your printer.Turn your printer OFF and remove all your print cartridges then install all of them again one at a time then turn the printer back ON, see if all the ink cartridges are now detected and if the Black will now print.Also if you can

Canon pixma ip4300 - magenta ink is recognized but not printing

Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

Hello, first unplug the the printer and take out the cartridges, first dab them on a wet paper towel until the ink start flowing, then take a q-tip dipped in alcohol and where u insert the cartridges, clean the print heads, replace the cartridges and power up. If that doesn't help it you have bad cartridges.

Printer prints every 2nd or 3rd line of a Word Document in pale gray ghostly way

Ink jets may be clogged, go into your printer software for the canon. At someplace in there there should be an option to run the cleaning program on the printer. This is used to clean out the jets and clean up the printer a little bit. Make sure that you have lots of ink, Cleaning process uses a lot ink

My printer only prints in the afternoon - believe it or not. Where do I go to retime it

Yvonne, the printer has no timer on it on. Check your driver settings on your computer. Specifically, check your advanced tab in your driver and see that "Always available" is clicked on.
