The rubber paper rollers on your printer that picks-up paper may have wiered out. So try replacing them. This may occur when the rubber rollers get dirty also. In that case just cleaning them with a wet cloth will do the solution (no water drop should fall on the printer assembly).

Comment:
I've had this printer for over a year now. I have it set up wirelessly connected to my network. The biggest problem I have is that I have 3 computers in the household and sometimes, for whatever reason, this printer will not realize it is done printing from the last job and will continue to think that it is working. So, when you go to print to it from another computer, you get the Another computer is using the printer. Please wait. This will continue until you go and turn the printer off and wait for the insanely long turning off cycle, then turn it back on. <br /><br />Once you do get it working, it gives you great output for both text and photos. I have been doing a lot of scanning old black and white family negatives and printing them, and my family members thought the prints were from a photo lab. <br /><br />Bottom line: if you want excellent output and have a tolerance for quirky connections, you will be OK with this. If, like my wife, you just want it to work like an appliance, and find the locking up infuriating, I would not recommend it.

Comment:
As rated by CU, it produces very nice photo prints. Text quality is also good when set on standard but not so good on fast. It takes it's time to get started when you send it something to print, whirring and clicking for a good minute before anything actually prints. My main complaint is paper handling. I sometimes print mailing labels from sheets. My previous printer, an HP 7560, would accept a sheet with an upward curled front lip. The Canon iP7220 either doesn't accept it or jams up solidly.

Comment:
Tried brochure paper and spent two days trying to get color right. Used glossy and matte photo paper for great print results, mostly. color shifted for no apparent reason. First batch of matte paper worked great, others jammed every 2-5 sheets. Will not pick up matte paper sometimes, gets worse the more I try.

Correct settings for printing on semi-gloss paper. I keep getting smears when printing and photo doesn&#39;t come out clearly

Well, it would be good to know why the photos are not good quality... like blurry or bad color or? Are you using a good paper? I have great luck with Canon glossy, and love the matte paper from Staples. Matte is actually easier and all around better color saturation, I find. I guess that you are using too much saturation of ink... see if your dialog box for printer options has a way to make saturation less intense. Also, I assume you are using the same dialog box to choose the type of paper. That is important, since different papers absorb ink at different speeds and amounts. I hope that helps... keep trying!

Matte photo paper. I am trying to print on printworks matte photo

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printing paper choices

The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.

Photo printing

hi doug

I had to reread your first post the mention of what to do with all the photo paper. I see you mean that you don't use matte photo paper you use matte heavy weight paper. I guess I mean that as a question! That is the only thing that works for me with no smearing problems. I haven't found one that is thick enough for a good feel. I used an avery matte paper that has a coating for photo but it just feels very light. Doesn't smear and looks sharp but very light weight. What brand do you use ?

post in me back
oke, thanks

Lousy print quality

That might be a problem of the photo paper. Use another brand and have a look at the manual to set the right paper settings.

Hp deskjet d2360

Hi

Yes the HP Deskjet D2360 will print pics. If you want to print photo quality, make sure your ink cartridges are in good shape and obtain photo quality paper.

You can actually print pictures on almost all printer paper but if you want a good result, I would suggest you look online for inkjet photo A4 photo paper.

Paper can be obtained in a number of finishes. For example Glossy, Silk, Matt and so on. If you just want reasonable quality for a school project or something, then a good quality non photo paper may be good enough for you.

Paper also comes in different thickness or weights. This is determined by the paper's GSM. For example: 80gsm is normal photocopier paper. A good quality photo paper would be 140gsm or 160gsm. When looking for paper online you'll see the GSM shown. It really is your personal choice. There are heaps of suppliers on the internet. Amazon do a good range.

You can also set your printer for various levels of quality. A rule of thumb is, the bettter the quality, the more ink you will use.

If you want to find out more about your printer, visit http.www.hp.com then look for your particular model.

Hope this helps.
