Though they’re very reliable to use in this most demanding of printing environments, printers are still problematic for users when using them. While using the Canon printer, you still need to get the help of IT professionals, which are available at the Canon customer care number, to solve out the different printing problems. From the ubiquitous paper jam to the double struck and print not clear, the following guide allows you to troubleshoot your printer to deal with these problems in an effective manner. Here’s how to do:
- Paper jams
One of the most common issues frequently occur with any of the printers are paper jams. A printer will jam due to various causes, as it’s dirty, you have used the incorrect paper type, or the printer’s rollers that feed the paper via its pathway are being damaged. You can fix the issues by cleaning your printer and using the correct paper type. Though, the roller replacement process might be difficult depending on the printer’s model. Despite the cause, while you remove the paper ham, always extract the paper in the paper path direction. Otherwise, it can damage your printer.
- Double Struck Letters
Attached to the toner cartridge in your Canon printer are print heads that manage how and where the ink is dropped on printouts. When printing a colored page, it will require passing on the page many times to smudge each color individually. If you have aligned print heads vertically or horizontally, but still, it prints the same letters side by side unintentionally, then you should readjust the print heads via the control panel of your printer.
- Press the ‘Windows-W’ keys to launch the Settings window, and then input the ‘printers’ into the search bar.
- Choose the ‘Devices and Printers’ option from the results, and then click the device right side under the Printers and Faxes section.
- From the context menu, choose the ‘Printing Preferences,’ followed by the ‘Maintenance’ tab.
- Click the ‘Print Head Alignment’ option and then the ‘Align Print Head’ to verify. Now, your Canon printer aligns the printheads properly.
- Print Not Clear or Satisfactory
If the printed result isn’t clear because of white streaks, rough colors, misaligned lines, then check the paper and the print quality settings. Normally a faded printout is the cause of one of three conditions, including the print density is set very low, low or empty ink cartridges or Economode printing enabled. If it’s turned on, and your printed page is very light, then turn it off and set the print density high. If the toner is low, just remove the cartridge and shake it to rearrange the ink to find a temporary resolution of the problem until you replace it.
If your Canon printer claims that there is still an issue after going through the solutions given above, then it may have a hardware related problem that is sourcing the issues. To find the exact cause of the printer issues, you can consult with experts by dialing Canon printer support number and fix the problems instantly.
