    Wikispaces is shutting down. What will happen to this site?
    Unfortunately this place will disappear if Weasel doesn't act before the deadline. Not a good sign :(
    I begged with WikiSpaces pretty hard, but their polices are quite clear (and I can understand why).

    Strange iPF6100 Problem
    gertjank ,

    Sometimes only deleting and re-installing the printer drivers , will /may not work well.It is possible that not all
    software is being removed from the computer.
    I first delete all drivers and software in the uninstall mode of the pc.And do a reboot (check that it doesn't do an automatic install of a newly found device)
    Then I delete the printer from the printers list (I reboot again)

    Then I install a new printer > to manufacturers guidelines ..
    Also install all the other software - especially the media configuration tool.

    Then follow all the adjustments /settings for a newly installed printer . Like head adjustments / paper feed / Multi - sensor adj / carriage drive / etc (see service / user manual for this )

    Wikispaces is shutting down. What will happen to this site?
    I have now written a support ticket to Wikispaces to ask what happens if the owner does nothing.
    Awaiting a response. It will be sad to see this place go after nearly 10 years here sharing information.

    Ahh.. you mean reinstall printer driver
    I thought there is a factory default button somewhere on the printer
    But I will try reinstalling it anyway
    Are the drivers have a version specific?
    I have a little bit older firmware (39) and would like to keep it and the firmware now is...42?
    can that be an issue to?

    @gertjank,
    To re-install printer , you delete all software (drivers , etc ) from software folder.Of course , first you delete the printer , in the printers section.
    Then do a fresh driver etc install.I do a reboot , after I have deleted and uninstalled the printer.

    After the reboot , I delete the printers software in the software section.For safety , I may de another reboot.
    And then I will install the new printer drivers etc.
    You also should run the media configuration tool , with a newly fresh driver install ( together with all the other software for the printer)

    If your paper is not listed in the media config tool , it can cause some problems , in getting a good print.

    HTH

    On a side note , it is possible , to use the head from another printer , in a second printer from the same model.
    But do not mix the heads. So L head from printer 1 -> L head from printer 2

    Hi
    I've been experimenting a bit more with paper

    I added another document here : http://canonipf.wikispaces.com/file/detail/iPF6100Problem+Part2.pdf
    All pictures are the same file (problem printer is the 6100-1)
    First 2 are printed on plain paper (set as plain paper)
    The rest are printed on the same cheap glossy paper
    pic 3 and 4 I told the driver to print as it was on glossy
    pic 5 Glossy Proof 195
    pic 6 glossy plus
    pic 7 plain paper
    pic 8 semi glossy HG 255
    pic 9 fine art photo
    pic 10 Hi Res barrier
    pic 3 - 10 all on same paper!!!
    All prints on papers with glossy in the name are bad
    as the one fine art photo or Hi res barrier or even plain are printed ok....

    So it can be paper related, but...the million dollar question is: how do I get rid of it?


    Many thanks

    Strange iPF6100 Problem
    Some papers are designed for other types of ink, e.g., dye-sub ink, solvent or ecosolvent inks only and are not compatible with pigment inks. So with such papers results can be similar what you have.

    About heads - if printer have one from latest printer firmwares execute Change print head prom printer panel and change head. All other ways uses more inks than this operation - printer does full system refill without this command.

    Hi,

    Tx riccer and valdas
    Yes all good inks
    All papers used the same

    New situation now, bought a different 6100 (not new) and this one prints the pic fine so it was something with the printer not the driver
    @Riccer how do I Re-Install the 6100? Im looking for a reset to factory default but cant find it (only reset paper)
    @Valdas how do you mean incompatible paper? I use glossy and use glossy...(not the best for testing this problem)

    And a new question:
    the new one has some clogging issues and want to exchange the heads.
    Is that possible without spilling all that ink?
    I mean the head im going to use has ink in it....

    Many thanks

    Strange iPF6100 Problem
    iPF5000 and iPF6100 using different print drivers on same PC. So good print with 5000 prove nothing.
    Papers for tests in all cases same? Something similar with bad example in 6100 case I saw with incompatible media in my long practice.
