If you are using cheap photo paper, the ink won't dry fast enough before touching parts of the printer as the paper moves during the printing process. Solution: buy top grade photo paper which dries the ink instantly upon contact with the paper.

On some injects, paper dust collects under the print-head and will eventually drag across you picture or document. On most you will see a hook like drag at the end of the line where the pater was advancing and the print-head was returning. If this is the case, unplug the printer and try to carefully clean the junk out from under the print-head with a piece of pater towel maybe even very slightly moistened with water.

The printer may not be scratching your printout but you may have a clogged printhead. A clogged printhead will constantly miss a spot creating an effect of a scratch printout. Please run an all inks printhead cleaning routine (2 or 3 times) and create a test page. Best Regards

You may have the "separator page" option turned on in your print driver. This option will insert a blank page after each print job to separate one print job from another. Simply uncheck the box by the separator page option and you should be back to normal !

How can i get the date and time to show up on my pictures on my s3200


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

C5800 printing vertical lines through pictures


The thin lines are caused by a worn out drum. Remove each drum in turn and look at the surface. It maybe hard to see the scratches and if so then send solid blocks of the primary colours one at a time and that will prove which drum is at fault.

Printer is printing but is not printing pictures in color. Please help.


Hi,

More than printer issue I think it has to do something with the applications from where you are trying to print the pictures. If its from internet over Internet Explorer. Try doing the same from FireFox or Mozilla. If its happening from Words than please try first from PainBrush. If it does not print from MS Paint then you need to reinstall the software for the printer.

Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Before I go into your solution I have to mention a few things first. Your printer software utility has multifunction printing capabilities. What I mean is you can print on thin paper , thick paper , and even glossy paper. I would go into your settings for your printer specifically for pictures or graphics and see what the paper thickness size is set for. Compair this to your setting for normal text printing and change your picture and graphics settings so it matches your text printing. I would also check on your printer some have a flip switch to set the printing head height. If it is selected low this could also cause scratching.
