Printer went downhill fast

I used to print full crisp photos all the time and as of late my printer is printing pixalated and blurry photos? I have gone through the whole cleaning and tried everything the manual asks me to do and still no good photos?

Well that means a new print head then.

Remove ink catridges and clean print head, shake inks and reinstall the inks, if problem persist, Uninstall the driver and reinstall. thats should help. Some time if the print head are dirty it prints multi color. You have to make sure the Head is Clean and install th inks properly.

My Brother MFC-3240C printer does not print crisp images. Colors are washed out and lines run though the images. I reinstalled the CD and no luck. Can you tell me what to fix?


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there. Better than throwing the printer.

Good Luck

Printing every few lines blurry, but not every line.

Really bad clunking sounds while printing


The commonest cause of blurry print is oscillation of the print head running along the track. This is usually due to contamination of the grease by dust etc. Wipe the track clean and try a print. If the blur has gone, you've found that problem - but you will now need to re-lubricate the track. A light lithium grease is ideal.

If the blur has not gone, the clunking noises might or might not be associated. You now need to take off the printer top cover to have a look at what is going on. To help you with this, download the Service Manual from:

BLURRY PRINT OUTPUT


The head probably needs aligning.

An interum fix is to turn off bi directional printing in the preferences.

This could possibly solve the problem.

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.

Printer issues


If you are using Glossy paper, when you go to print make sure to go into the printer Properties from the Print dialog box and select Glossy paper in the type. This will put the printer into it's highest print quality mode.

So from most windows applications, it would be :-
CTRL-P (to print with dialog box for changes)
Click on Properties
Select a Media type of glossy photo paper
Select standard or high print quality.

p.s. you may need to experiment which if the media types gives you best quality for the paper your using, unless it's Canon paper and then just match it up.
