First thing to try is just play with all the scan settings to see what gives you the best result - try changing resolutions, type of document, type of output document, contrast, brightness, type of scan. If this doesn't give you any better results, then one of the best ways to do this is to get some plastic sheet of the same or almost the same as the predominant colour on your forms (you can go one step further and make a multi coloured filter if you are feeling creative and your forms are all identical). The text jumps out of the page and most scanners will give you a good scan - just make sure the filter is not too thick/dark. Hope this helps :)

Feel like an idiot...does the paper load with the print facing downward or upward?


You didn't say what brand and model printer you have so I can't look up a manual and check it for you. But if you don't want to waste a sheet of good stationery or a valuable form (like checks), make a test sheet. Take a plain sheet of paper and mark it along the top edge. Or use a photocopy of the form as a test sheet. Put the test sheet into the printer and print something on it. From the result you'll know how to feed the sheets in the future.

My Canon MP 150 continues to return the e19 error message after trying to scan the alignment page. How do I fix that?


Hi ...

Well it looks like the head alignment sheet was not filled in properly ...
Confirm the circles were filled in as follows: Good example:

Bad examples:

If more than one circle is filled in, reprint the Head Alignment Sheet.
Print Head Alignment
  1. Ensure that the printer is powered on and open the paper output tray. (Confirm that the paper thickness lever is set to the left.)

  2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder (or ASF).

  3. Press the <Maintenance> button several times until [P] is displayed in the LED.

    05sj00115_05.gif
    < 2 > Bad example: Checkmark
    < 3 > Bad example: Line only
    < 4 > Bad example: Not dark enough

  7. Open the document cover and load the head alignment sheet on the platen glass.

    Note: - Place the printed side down.- Align the sheet with the alignment mark (shown by the arrow) on the lower right corner of the platen glass.

either ur blue cartridge is empty or maybe the nozzle of ur blue are clogged .normally the dark blue colour is made up by mixing of blue and pink . because ur nozzles of blue are clogged or maybe the blue is empty it prints only in pink when u command for blues.replace the blue if its empty or clean the nozzles if its clogged.

Color is all wrong


Your pictures are coming out with a blue tint. Remove the color catridge and look at the bottom of it. the Yellow is probably green. If it isn't, trying performing a printhead cleaning through your home center. After that, calibrate the printer, you may see that on the calibration sheet, that colors are missing. Scan the calibration page and then try your printing your pictures. If that doesn't work, contact kodak tech support, you need a new printhead.

NO CALIBRATION SHEET


Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.

Trouble printing a thicker form


Hi,
I have come accross this problem on a number of sites. It may be the Paper Out sensor. It works by emitting light from one half of the sensor reflectiong it of the paer and picking it up with the other half of the sensor. When no paper is present, the light cannot reflect and hense a paper out error is reported. I have seen this error occur when paper with dark backing ( like that for bank and tax forms ) is used.
