Hi,

Since the cleanings did not resolve the issue, the printer would require service. 

If the printer is in it's 1 year warranty, I recommend reaching out to Canon support for your warranty options. You will need to register your Canon gear HERE to access additional support options.

If the printer is out of warranty, you would qualify for the Canon Upgrade program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service or are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This program allows you the opportunity to purchase a replacement product discounted from the list price. Free ground shipping is included with your purchase.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please call our Sales Department at (866) 443-8002 Mon-Sat, 9 AM to 9pm EST excluding holidays.

Same- replaced all the ink, performed all the cleanings and still, light faded printed paper.

Hi akeedy,

First, a test of your PIXMA MX922 should be performed.  To do this, please follow these steps:

1.  Please press the MENU button on your PIXMA MX922

2.  Use the down arrow key until the wrench and screwdriver icon is selected, then press OK

3.  On Maintenance, press the OK button

4.  Select Print nozzle check pattern and then press OK

5.  Select Yes and then press the OK button

Please compare your test page with the example added at the bottom of this post.

Did a black grid print to the right of |PGBK| at the top of the page?

Are there any boxes missing within the grid?

Below that, did 3 blue, 3 pink, 1 yellow and 1 gray bars print?

If anything is missing, please make sure that each ink tank contains ink.

Next, perform a few printhead cleanings:

1.  Please press the MENU button on your PIXMA MX922

2.  Use the down arrow key until the wrench and screwdriver icon is selected, then press OK

3.  Select Maintenance then press OK

4.  Select Cleaning and press OK

5.  Select Yes and press OK

After performing 2 or 3 cleanings, please print another test page.

If the test page still does not print correctly, your PIXMA MX922 would require service.  If your PIXMA MX922 was purchased less than a year ago, please contact one of Canon's Technical Support Representatives via phone or chat to obtain your in warranty options.
