The printout is grainy. What should I do?

  • Check the following:
    • Make sure the printable side of the paper is faceup. It's usually brighter or whiter.
    • Select a higher Quality Option or Print Quality and turn off High Speed and Fast Economy or Economy mode in the product software.
    • Select Photo RPM for the Quality Option (Windows) or Print Quality (Mac OS X 10.4 or Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6). 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.
