Pixma Pro 100 Poor Quality

Hello!

 

I just setup the Pixma Pro 100 and the first 4 photos I printed look terrible. On my MacBook Pro they look great, but when the print job is complete the photo have a very blurry / wet look.

 

Any suggestions?  I've tried printing from Preview, Photos (iOS software), and CS Photoshop.

Sounds like you are printing on the wrong side of the paper. Wet a finger tip and touch the corner of the paper. The print side, which goes in printer facing you, will feel tacky. Some papers are hard to tell.

Thanks I'll try that.

 

Another thing I noticed is that all of the product demos on YouTube it took several minutes for the print to finish.  Mine printied in a few seconds.

John,

Thank you so much! You solved the issue and now the photos look FANTASTIC! 🙂

Another question.

 

My photos print fine on 8.5x11 paper. But when I put in my A3 paper it won't print.

 

The print loads the paper fine, but then I get an error and the job never finishes.  Any advice??

Is there an error number or message, or just error?
