Poor Photo Print Quality With Windows 7/Canon PIXMA IP4700

Q: Poor Photo Print Quality With Windows 7/Canon PIXMA IP4700

Hi everyone,

Got a bit of a strange problem here. Got a brand new laptop and printer, and suddenly I can't get a decent photograph print.

The printer is highly recommended, it's a Canon Pixma iP4700 which has had excellent reviews. But everything I print on it has no punch or sparkle, it's almost as if it has a grey film over it, a bit like I'm looking at my photo with cataracts! I printed the same photo on my dad's (much older) Epson printer and got a brilliant result.

I don't know if the problem is the printer, though, as he has Windows Vista and I have Windows 7 and have been using Google Picasa to import my photos. I am wondering if there is a setting on there that is colour correcting my photos either on import or on their way to the printer, as I am not used to Windows 7 yet.

Is there anyone here who can shed a bit of light on the problem? I really don't want to take the printer back if it's something I am doing with Windows that can be easily changed.

Thank you for your help!

After trying two computers, one with vista, one with xp, same poor photo print quality. I tried two Canon programs to print from Canon Easy Photo Pint and Canon ZoomBrowser. The photos came out of the printer with too much ink on pictures.

I am using a generic glossy paper, selected glossy paper for print, and bad prints. Finally, selected next step down from glossy paper in the Easy program paper selection to high resolution paper and out came good photo prints. I have not listed all the other failed steps to the solution.

Hope this helps someone.

A:Solved: My Canon ip4700 poor photo quality

I imagine the reason for your dismal photos results from your choice of "generic photo paper" Your Canon printer is capable of outstanding photo prints if you use the right type of paper. The Canon papers are excellent but all to often they are very very expensive. I have gotten great results using "Ilford Gallerie Smooth Gloss Paper" purchased at Sams Club. Price was about $21 per 100 sheets 8.5x11.0. I also get good results using "Kodak Ultra Premium Photo Paper" also purchased at Sam's for about $22 for 200 sheets 4"x6".

I mean, at what speed?
It's telling me only "ink running low". HOW low? - and HOW FAST?
What happens when it actually does run out? - does the printer stop functioning till the cart's replaced?
Or does the Pixma keep on printing but with a colour missing?
I'm pretty pissed off by the lack of info in the message: just not good enough. How are you supposed to manage??

Since I could not edit my previous post, this is the update to my ip4700 poor print quality post.

I worked on this problem some more to gain better photos from my Canon ip4700. I removed all reference to my past canon printer ip4000 using both program removal and control panel program add/remove function. I removed ip4700 the same way. Started fresh. Installed ZoomBrowser EX from CD. Then I downloaded and installed the latest drivers from Canon for the ip4700 and my computer op system xp http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer iP4700 series Printer Driver Ver. 2.33; My Printer Ver. 2.8.0; Easy-PhotoPrint EX Ver. 3.2.0; and Solution Menu Ver. 1.4.3. And all is well and good. I tried two different glossy photo paper brands and set on glossy paper and no more over ink of photos. The photos look very good.

Hope this helps.

I have a canon MP560 pixma printer that I am not able to print using the canon black ink. The cartridges are new OEM Canon cartridges. The printer has been idle for 1 year and is essentially new. I did a couple of black only deep cleanings but still prints black in a blue tone. I had Canon customer service tell me it could be a malfunctioning print head. Is there a way to clean the print head using alcohol and will this possibly clean the head without damaging it? I have used this method on other printers. Does anyone have another suggestions.

I have a Canon Pixma MP210. So, I always print in black & white b/c I just print out documents. I've had an old, empty color ink cartridge sitting in there, though. Today I took the empty black cartridge out to recycle at Staples, as I was going to buy a new one. I got the bright idea to also take out the empty color cartridge, so that I could get that recycling credit, too. Well, now it will not print without a color cartridge, even an empty one, installed. It says: "The following ink cartridge cannot be recognized. Printing cannot be executed b/c the ink cartridge may not be propertly installed, blah blah blah." Is there any way to bypass this??? I don't want to have to buy a new color cartridge, as I won't even use it! I am willing to try any kind of hack. I need to print work documents. Help, please!!!

I'm assisting an elderly lady with this printer problem. After changing Cyan & Magenta cartridges the printer failed to print the current Word doc. The RESUME/CANCEL button was flashing orange continuously.
In the printer's Maintenance I tried the following:
i) Deep Cleaning - Black PGBK, resulted with Operator error. RESUME button failed to clear the problem.
ii) Deep Cleaning - All colours, same result as above.
iii) Cleaning - same result as above.
iv) Print Head Alignment - same result as above.
v) Nozzle Check - same resuilt as above.
Turned the printer off and on again, flashing orange light.
Shutdown the computer and restarted it, with no improvement.
Lastly noted how many orange flashes - five. So I consulted the Service Manual,
Section 2-1. Operator Call Errors (by Alarm LED Blinking in Orange).
5 times; Solution suggested Install the print head properly.
All the Ink Cartridges show red light. Can anyone please offer a suggestion as how to correct this problem, thank you?

I'm using XP home edition and am having problems with this printer. I have installed all the software that came with the printer and it is also set as a default printer. There is a message that comes up to load the paper and even if I do so, it does nothing but feed it through after a few seconds.

The manual or the readme doesn't say anything about this problem. I used the 'express install' and when I go through and try to install the easy-photoprint ex, it immediately tells me it's installed.

I'm able to print in color and black and white with other formats. I'm also using version 1.0 that came with the printer.

Ok, so I've had my printer for a longggg time now. I got my cartridges refilled recently and haven't used the printer since then apart from a couple of pages the same day. Yesterday I tried to print but it only prints in yellow.
So I figure print head must be clogged. I have ran warm water through it, didn't fix the problem. I sat it in a saucer of isopropyl alcohol until the ink ran. Yay! So I put it back in the computer and did a test print. It only printed in black! Then I ran cleaning and the next test print came out black!!
When I removed the print head unit it had ink smudges of all colours on it, which means the ink must be flowing and that the problem is not the print head but something between it and the paper. I am absolutely clueless on what it could be! Also, where the print head unit comes to rest is always covered in fresh ink, when I check.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Canon Pixma ip1500 Print Head Problems, this will have you speechless!!

I was also very frustrated with my wife's printer. Since she does not use it very often, the print heads get clogged from ink in the printer head. I have successfully cleaning this one by pouring hot water into the print head container and waiting for it to cool down, then following it up with isopropyl alcohol. Using toilet tissue, wipe the bottom of the ink jets until the color and black is about run out. Hold the head level so that the alcohol does not dump out while wiping the jets.

Fill up your cartridges with ink. I buy bulk ink so I don't have to pay so much for ink replacement. I have bottles for each color (C, M, Y) and black that have needle tips. If you do not have this you could use medical dropper bottles. Ask the pharmacist for these and explain what you're doing and he will probably give them to you. They also have syringes with blunt metal tips, but he may be more reluctant to hand those out for fear of drug misuse.

The ink is entered into the top of the Canon branded cartridges by prying off the rectangular covers. Make sure you put the right color ink into the three openings for the color cartridge. To determine this, use a toothpick to poke in and get a sample on the toothpick. Once you know the correct opening, Mark it by either a sticker or sharp steel marker on the cartridge next to each opening. The best way seems to drip the ink into the openings until you have added the amount specified for each color. These cartridges hold 5 1/2 ml o... Read more

We just purchased a HP CM1415fnw Laserjet All-in-one to replace an older Inkjet model. The Laserjet is pretty fantastic and will do about everything but shine your shoes. However...

Printing photographs either directly from a high res jpeg or as scanned is.. well, poor. Looks like blotchy old You-tube quality pics.

There's no reason to think the printer is faulty since text and graphics from the web print fine. I recognize the color resolution on this thing is only 1200 by 1200 but that's similar to our old inkjet and it prints excellent quality pictures.

Anyone have any suggestions with respect to how to improve this poor photo quality or at least how to understand why it is what it is?

I'm running Windows XP with all updates. For the last 100 years or so, I have very carefully loaded used paper (printed on one side only) in the back tray of my printers. I'll use clean new paper from the front cassette only for my more important jobs. Saves a tree and a few bucks. My brand new Canon Pixma MX860 allows me to select Rear Tray when I go to print, but if I have chosen Plain Paper and 8.5x11, it overrides and sends to the front cassette. (I'm trying not to grumble too much - my old MX780 had a nice little button on the printer that would simply switch trays. No such button on the MX860, an otherwise great printer.) Can anyone figure out a workaround so I can continue to recycle good used paper? And yes, I know, no one in their right mind except me would send used paper through my printer, and it's not recommended, and yes, I did once ruin a printer this way, but I've grown very careful, and it works for me. So ... any help?

A:Solved: Canon Pixma MX860 won't print 8.5x11 from back tray

Figured it out myself. Simple solution: set Paper Source default to Continuous Autofeed, and then when you want to print recycled from the back tray just pull the front cassette drawer out a bit. The MX860 thinks you are out of paper in front and sends the job to the back. Presto, recycled 8.5x11 plain paper from the back tray. Only drawback - you have to override the default when you go to print a photo or something in the back tray (which I don't do that often anyway).

I have a Minolta magicolor 3100 (1200x1200dpi) laser printer that works just fine for everything except PHOTOS. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from the Minolta website with no improvement. I am using Adobe Photo Shop 3.0. The test pictures that the printer produces are much sharper than anything I can print from Adobe. My jpeg files are 500K or greater and the pictures look great on the monitor. I have also tried printing from the Cannon software that came with the camera, but the results are the same. Minolta tech support is now saying that this may be the best I can expect. How can a 1200 x 1200 dpi be of such poor quality for photos? This seems incredible to me.
Any help would be appreciated.


A:Poor Print Quality

Read other 10 answers

Hello Everyone,

I have an issue with my printer and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how I go about fixing it.

I have Canon BJC-4200SP, it's a few years old but still does the job. Today though it has been playing up. I have been using it for work purposes for a while now, printing out customer receipts - so I use the highest quality option.

I had to change the ink today though, I've actually changed the cartridge twice now to try and fix it but what is happening is that I am getting this poor printout quality. You know how you get those white lines through the text and lines for tables come out squiggly and that. That's the only way I can describe the problem really.

Is it that I changed the cartrigde and it needs a few prints before the ink settles. Or is it time for a new printer? I dusted everything and cleaned as much as I could as well. Even did all those printer head cleaning things in maintanence.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:Poor Print Quality

In your Canon software there should be some way for you to calibrate your ink cartridge. That's what it sounds like to me. Before you calibrate it, I would also do a clean print heads as well. If you don't have Canon software installed, just go to Canon's website, www.canon.com , and see if you can download the drivers from there. GOOD LUCK!

A:Cannot use canon easy photo print

That is an ancient printer, so it is possible that even though the software installed, the printer will never work with Windows 8.  Did it work before with the previous version of windows you had, on your old computer?  Have you tried a different USB cord, or made sure that the cord was connected to both the printer & computer, and the printer is turned on?  
Looking through some searches, appears that after around Vista, this printer was no longer recognized by current OS's.  The best I can say is welcome to planned obsolescence.

Hi, I bought a Canon iP4900 printer recently, mainly to print labels on inkjet printable CDrs. After an initial issue with using Nero Cover Designer, which resulted in the printer thinking that an 80mm mini CDr was in fact a 120mm standard CDr (it appeared to ignore the size given) which ended up with it printing over the CD tray, I settled down to use the limited software, Canon Easy Photo Print EX instead.

To print my 80mm mini CDrs I created some text in Indesign at the correct size, saved them as image files and imported them into Easy Photo Print EX. This worked fine and when I printed out the CDs the text appeared at the correct size.

Then I loaded the same image files into the larger 120mm standard CD template, so I could create some CDs for friends who could not use the mini CD format. When I printed these CDs out, the image had been automatically scaled to fit the larger CD, without any option to remove this. The image size control in Easy Photo Print EX only controls the crop around the image, not the scale or size of the image involved. It appears to scale the images, ignoring the original size. If I print the images of the text out on paper, they appear the same size as on the 80mm mini CDs.

I'm very confused by this. The software is not very good, but no other software I've used, Nero included, seems to work with this printer. I cannot understand why it is upscaling an image automatically when placed on the larger CD template.

At the moment it means... Read more

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

Have you first of all tried plugging in printer into the laptop and seeing if this prints fine with the cable connected? If not then look in control panel for devices and printers and click on this, does the printer have a green ticket next to it?

I recently installed windows 10 on my computer only to find my perfectly good printer no longer works.
The drivers wouldn't update automatically so I went to product support on canon website to search there
It came back with the message that there were no drivers for Win 10 and that I should either change my printer or my OS
I don't wish to do either
Could anyone help me with an alternative to this ludicrous suggestion?
I always trusted canon to be a reliable and reputable company but I may think twice in future if a company cant keep abreast with the latest technology

A:Windows 10 renders my Canon pixma 1p4600 printer useless

I would not imagine that attitude will last very long.
Surely Canon have been working to get drivers etc ready for the latest OS from Windows.
I had a similar experience with a Samsung Printer.....sent an email to their support area....and received a phone call from South Korea to explain the procedure to me followed by an email with the detail printed there.
So....send them an email...give them the story.....and hopefully the reply will fix things.
Otherwise.....inform them that you will be buying another printer....and it wont be a canon !

Hi friends:

I have an HP dv5-1002nr laptop. Seven days ago, I upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7. I updated all drivers, per the HP support site, and all seems to be working really good.

The only issue is when viewing downloaded or other videos that are in on my pc (no problem with online viewing or DVDs). The videos are fuzzy/with blocks, pixelated. This is especially true the bigger I make the viewing screen. Aweful.

I have done much googling, and tweaking. I've used a number of video players. Many seem to have the problem, but I've been able to get no solution.

Please help. This is really a major issue for me.

My son was given a laptop for his birthday last year and it has a cracked hinge. 
After much research I've learned that this is a very common problem in this laptop. We called customer care center 2 different times and stayed on the phone for at least an hour each time. We were told a box would be sent out for repair. His laptop was still under the 1yr warranty at this time. 
Today, we called again to get some answers and they have no record of us calling. (Surprise, surprise!) We still have not received any return box and his warranty has now, of course, expired. 
I will never purchase another Dell product again in my life! Also I'll warn everyone I know to stay far away from your products. 

A 16 yr old kid has a "new" computer that he uses a stack of books to prop the screen to use his $400 laptop! (because of a cheap screws and plastic casing)
This is unacceptable and shame on you Dell! 

A:Poor Quality & Poor Customer Service!

We?re listening. We?ll surely have this reviewed and let you know with the right information. We don?t want to see our customers upset and inconvenienced. We request you to PM us with the service tag, registered owner?s name, your email address and any reference number in regards with the previous conversation with Dell. We?ll be more than happy to look into it and assist you further.

Hi, I am looking all over to find an answer to my question about the windows photo viewer and cannot find anywhere. Please if you can't answer my question at least set me in the right direction??? When I go to print, it tells me that I can choose
only the "full photo" size. I know it also has choices of wallet, 5x7, double picture side by side, stuff like that. It will not ever show up when I hit print and go to put in all the variables for how I want the picture to be printed. Where are
my choices? how do I find them, why are they not available on my photo viewer print option? I am working on an asus laptop, I think it is an 8.1 operateing system. But,,, I also have the same problem with my other laptops and desk top  programs. It will
not give me the option to print out wallet size pictures or any of the other options except "Full Photo". Help! Thank you in advance. Oh and I have no idea where to find the answer to this question so I am giving you my email to send it too if your
able. Please send to don ee me be at hot mail .com (I hope you figure this out because it says I can't send you any links and now I don't know how to get your answers. ) . Please this has been a mystery for the last 3 years now.
I give up trying to find a repair on my own. I am not so tech savvy. Again, thank you, thank you , thank you in advance. sincerely, donna

My laptop's speakers have had poor sound quality for the past several months--fuzzy/static especially when bass sounds are played.  This only happened through the speakers; headphones had fine sound quality.  I had assumed it was a hardware issue.   But I recently thought to change the quality of the sound (sample rate and bit format in the sound properties dialog), and once I changed it the sound was better.  But only for one use.  If a new video is played, the sound gets bad again.  If I go and change the quality again (to anything, it doesn't matter if it's lower or higher quality), then the sound will be good again. And so on.   It says the driver (realtek high def audio ver: is up to date, so I had it use the older version of the driver (ver: which gave the same result, and also tried the basic  driver (high def audio device) which produced a tin-like sound and was not very loud.    The speakers worked fine prior to what I assume was a windows 10 update that occured sometime in fall 2016.  I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Hello all

My WMP 12 is having a video quality problem with all video files. There is apparently nothing wrong with the audio. I use Windows 7 Enterprise.

When I use any other player, any file plays just fine.
Here are two screenshots, one of WMP and one of VLC playing the same file on my computer:



This has been happening, I guess, since I had installed K-Lite Codec Pack for playing DVD, as I was unable to play them otherwise.

I really appreciate any help regarding this. Thanks!
