Transparency copy problem

Hi, This is my first weekend with my new MP810 . I have found it to be better than expected in all areas except one (and the problem is probably my lack of understanding anyway). I cannot get anything other than 'negatives' from my attempts to copy - as per ther handbook- 35 mm transparencies. Everything is reproduced in shades of blue and black and quite useless. What am I doing wrong or is it a possible glitch with the machine? Thanks for any help. Mike

The setting should go something like this- Colour reflective Black and white reflective Colour Negative. Colour Transparency. Black and white negative. Some scanners automatically sense and switch to what is loaded - others need setting up. So check thoroughly all the settings in conjunction with the manual[A full manual in PDF format is usually on the software disk. Then come back

    I am pleased you said 'read the 'manual [more carefully]'

    Some folk only read the manual when all else fails
    And others I have noticed have said on here 'Oh that! I threw it away with the packaging.
    So well done!

Cartridge is full then also page is printed light

I have same printer (Laserjet P2015D) with light print brand new and banding and shadows on solid areas. Tech support at HP has ruled out that the new cartridge needed breaking in (15-30 copies). They are now saying it could be a fuser issue and since the machine is brand new I should exchange it at the retail store. Disappointing because box stated it was mfg in Japan and I was expecting better.

Hi, I would like to print on Transparency paper, but it will not allow me, what am I doing incorrect please . does it go into the photo tray or paper Tray ? Regards Ellen


First of all, are you working with a laser printer or inkjet? if it is laser make sure that you have the correct transparency, IT MUST BE HEAT RESISTANT! if it is not,u'll end up buying a new fuser unit. then...

1. Put the transparency in your MP tray
2. When selecting "print" click on properties and select your MP tray as your source,
3. Select Transparency for you media type.

after doing this you will be able to print your transparencies.

I hope it helps
Kind regards

Canon PIXMA MP810 All-in-One

and Hello,

Appreciate the update.

Re rob_a.sys and rob_v.sys - they were for your Pinnacle PCTV Pro TV capture card. There are updated versions that works with XP and if I remember right, you I suggested for you to search where you can find the updated versions, download and try it they will likewise work with Vista.

Re Canon PIXMA MP810 All-in-One - try deleting it in your Printers and Faxes. Thereafter pls try the "New/Add Hardware" in your Control Panel rather than the "Add a Printer".
