The print head is still probably still partially blocked. Cleaning/deep cleaning tries to clear the head by flushing ink through, doesn't always work but does use up your ink.

You can get print head cleaning kits, PC shops,ebay etc. Try one of those.

Here's a really useful ebay url. with some youtube links, if you run the second video down you should get a pretty good idea.

Here's a direct link :- http://www.printheadhospital.co.uk/quickshop/

You don't have to buy this one, there may be cheaper, have a shop around.

Hello.

Since you are you printing a photograph, is it possible that you are sending a file in Adobe RGB colorspace, which the printer may not be recognizing ?

Have you tried converting to sRGB before printing? Washed out colors and lack of contrast are symptoms of colorspace mismatching. Or, are you experiencing another type of problem ?

Hope this helps.

Hi Dianne
When paper bunches up it generally means there is an obstruction in the way - after the paper has gone into the rollers.
Sometimes it's as simple as a bit of debirs or even a pin off the pinboard has fallen in. However. a couple of instances have been that in the platen (the bit the paper passes over while the ink is being quirted) there is a strip of oddly cut sponge foam - and this foam as somehow come out of its seating and is getting in the way.
Open the printer as if you are going to replace the inks but take the whole print-head out. (take the inks out first then the print head) Then look at the metal plate and you'll see the foam. Is it dirty? is it wrinkled? is it sitting fluch with the surrounding surface?
Carefully remove it with tweezers (or rubber gloves) and give it a good wash in warm water until the water runs fairly clear.
With a damp piece of paper-towel, clean off the metal plate and the recess where the foam came from. When you are happy that it's clean squeeze the foam between some clean paper towel to remove as much water as possible and then carefully fit it back into the recess. - it's a bit fiddly but it will only go in one way round so you can't get it wrong.
Refit the print-head and the inks and see if matters have improved..
If they haven't then you will need to locate your nearest Canon centre.

The solution is to install the driver from the Canon website instead of using the default driver installed by Windows 7.
Windows 7 x64 ..click here to download ,canon mp610 drivers.

Windows 7 x86 ..click here to download

1. Click the link, select [ Save ], specify "Save As", then click [ Save ] to download the file.
Memo :
If you select [ Run ] ( or [ Open ] ) instead of [ Save ], the file will be automatically installed after it is saved.
2. The downloaded file will be saved in the specified place in the self-extracting form ( .exe format ).
3. Double-click the downloaded EXE file to decompress it, then installation will start automatically.

> ink try full ?

It is the tray that holds the "wasted" ink that is full.

Replace the waste-ink tray, or get a printer-technician to do it.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Try using the other side of the paper.

Some-times each sheet of paper has both smooth and a rough side.

Also you want to let the paper you are using air for about 30 minutes so it can adjust to your room conditons.

Tell me how it goes!

Thanking you kindly
