Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Prints look different from PC.

Any idea what causes the prints to look so different from PC. Was it the touch ups that were performed? Or maybe the exp I was using? Or all the digital cameras pictures have a bit of noise when printing? Maybe KODAK machine? This is my first Digital camera, therefore the only pics. I can compare it to the ones from a regular camera.

If all else fails, try http://www.shutterfly.com - I've gotten *excellent* printing results from them with images from my FZ1, way beyond 8X10 sizes. At Shutterfly, and others also, I'm sure, you can do some tweaking of color balance, and crop, on-line, after your image is uploaded before ordering prints.

Like in film, most in-store (or if they use outside print houses) operates on a default settings/automatic mode which may not necessarily match individual image settings. Tweaking individual batch of order is just not economically feasible. As one has pointed out, better to use those newer print houses that specializes in digital images or other print store until you find more pleasing results. If you use online storage/site, they usually have printing services and results are much better.

I had that exact same problem. Photos look great on my monitor but when I had them printed at Wal Mart on the Kodak machine they look very dark and noisey. Then had them printed at their one hour photo and they look quite a bit better but still a little dark. Had the same pictures processed on line with Ofoto and they turned out great. So you may want to try another machine or place and see if you get different results. And like the other post also check your monitor settings.

Just a guess but I imagine your monitor needs adjusted, here is a link http://www.normankoren.com/... ...akingfineprints1A.html#Monitor_test_pattern If you do a search here for monitor calibration you will find lots of opinions. Usually the printed version looks better than the monitor shows. It is my guess that you are sharpening way to much to make it look good on your monitor. All monitors are different , which is one reason when you send someone a picture that you really think is terrific only to find that they don't think much of it. Maybe since you have the Kodak version you could adjust your monitor to look like it, that way when you edit you will not overdo it.

ONE LAPTOP AND ONE PC. ONE BROTHER ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER. THE LAPTOP PRINTS PERFECTLY CLEAR. THE PC PRINTS IN DOUBLES.


1, After understanding the issue, there are a few steps by which you can resolve this. This issue is known as the Ghost printing, where it will print a single document twice.
2, To resolve this problem I strongly recommend you to use only genuine cartridges from the same company.
3, Each cartridge ensures you to provide good quality and high-resolution prints. Now, check if the printing sheets are compatible with the specification of your printer.
4, Use only unused printing sheets, with correct paper size and good quality. If you are not sure if the printing sheets meet the specifications for the device.
5, If the media is not suitable for the printer, perform a test print of 10 pages on the machine using regular 20 lb or 24 lb media.
6, If the ghosting is still present, continue to the next step. Open the rear cover of the machine.
7, Place the grey pressure release levers in the position. Clean the levers properly and try printing.
8, If you still not able to print then try servicing your printer.

Factory reset


This type of problem is typically caused by one of the ink cartridges which is suffering from marginal electrical performance - either the HP92 (black) or HP93 (color) ink cartridge.

Can you perform the 'Self Test Page' test (see below). If this test is successful then this demonstrates the printer is 'generally operational', but if normal printing is still not permitted then either the HP92 (black) or HP93 (color) ink cartridge is likely electrically damaged and may need to be replaced*.

Perform Self Test Page:
1. Press and hold the CANCEL button.
2. Press the COLOR COPY button. Release both buttons.
3. The self test prints. The printed pattern will verify printer is generally functional. Inspect color bars to verify proper nozzle/jetting health.

-- Inspect printed nozzle stair step patterns - verify all ink nozzles are properly firing. Generally, if the Self Test Page prints ok then the printer is functioning correctly and the problem is with the ink cartridges - replace the suspect ink cartridge and retest. Refer to 2nd video procedure at the following link on how to read the Self Test page test (NOTE: HP74/75 cartridges are electrically identical to the HP92 thru 98 cartridges).
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=579

*Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures. Severe cartridge errors are primarily caused by an electrical breakdown at the cartridge's nozzle plate. Ink *********** or corrosion into the nozzle plate will cause a failure of the tiny micro-electronics resulting in a variety of different error messages being displayed - see picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1216

It is suggested to install a new HP92 and/or HP93 ink cartridge in it to resolve the current issue.

HP Photosmart 3210xi - some colors (magentas) will not print


Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.

We have an error code SC546 any idea what that means. It just showed up.


This is a fuser code; it can be reset on newer models by pressing...

clear modes(yellow key)
1, 0, 7
clear stop (hold down until screen changes)

select copier sp

turn machine off with red rocker switch(likely on left side of machine)

wait 10 seconds and turn back on

If the code comes back, there is likely something malfunctioning on the machine, and it will require service. If not, this should get you by for awhile.

Brother MFC 5840-CN - line appearing on copies


I have no idea whats happening here.. But it sounds a bit like when he prints from the pc, it uses a different paper stock? Could it be the paper from a direct copy is being used from a different source or tray? Or maybe it's like a 'draft' copy?

I know thats not much help, but if you want, I can spend some time investigatiing this.. But as over a hundred people have never bothered to reply to my posts, I'm a bit reluctant to waste time, unless it's appreciated.. Let me know if you really want to get involved at a deeper level..

Oki 520 missing print


You have replaced the item which is commonly the cause- the printhead. The other possible problems are: a connection break in the printhead ribbon cable, which makes electrical connection from the driver circuitry to the printhead. Look for a tiny crack, especially along the edge of this ribbon cable. Another possibility is an electronic component defect in the circuitry which fires the printhead, or maybe a loose solder connection in the same circuit. Lastly, when you replaced the printhead, are you reasonably certain the replacement head didn't have a broken top pin or two?
