The printout is grainy. 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 Quality Option or Print Quality, and turn off High Speed mode in the Windows, Macintosh OS X 10.5 and 10.6 or Macintosh OS X 10.4 printer software.
    • Select Photo RPM (Max dpi) for Quality Type (Windows) or Photo RPM for the Print Quality (Macintosh OS X 10.5 and 10.6 or Macintosh OS X 10.4). Remember that this setting increases print time.
    • Align the print head.
    • You may need to increase the image resolution or print in a smaller size; see your software documentation.
