I have been struggling for months with this on 3 printers. It is obviously in the drive. But thanks to you all I finally found a run-around (unless canon kills it ). Just print in Hagati. (Much faster that when you set it to photo or the other papers mentioned.) Chose Quality and media and chose Hagati paper.Try the differnt types. Hagati A prints the lightest, Hagati jet ink prints high quality and darker. Interesting that they apparantly didn't mess with the Japanese script.Speaks poorly of canon - a company I always regarded highly
When you switch the paper types to something other than plain paper, the PIXMA MX922 will use the dye based black to print text. If you switch back to plain paper, the printer will draw from the larger black ink, the pigment black.
If you are experiencing the same issue as the poster above, please try cleaning the encoder as I suggested.
Blurry printing can be caused by a smudge on the encoder/timing strip.
To clean the encoder/timing strip, please follow the steps outlined in the following Knowledgebase Article available from our web site:
