My printout is grainy when I print from any application. What should I do?

  • Check the following:
    • Make sure the printable side of the paper is face-up. It's usually brighter or whiter.
    • Select a higher Print Quality, and turn off High Speed mode in the printer software.
    • Select Max Quality (Windows) or SuperPhoto - 5760dpi (Macintosh) as the Print Quality. Remember that this setting increases print time.
    • Align the print head.
    • You may need to increase the resolution of your image or print in a smaller size; see your software documentation.
