How to improve very low quality prints of a Canon Pixma Printer?

There are more than one way to resolve the print quality issue. This is all depends on the cause of such quality prints. It can either be the low or empty Canon Pixma MP610 ink cartridges or the blocked printheads that are causing such issue.

To resolve this problem you can follow the steps below. In case the quality improv at any given point you can stop the process right there.

Step One: Check Ink Cartridges
If you haven’t use your printer from a long time or your Canon Pixma MP610 ink cartridges are at very low level, then you need to replace the cartridges in order to improve the print quality. The old and unused ink cartridges dry out and cause blurred prints.

You need to buy new Canon Pixma MP610 ink cartridges. Make sure you keep the print on while you replace the cartridges and properly remove all the packaging material off the Canon Pixma MP610 ink cartridges, before you install them.

Step Two: Clean Printheads
Clogged printheads prevent the ink from evenly or properly spread on the paper and results in low quality print. To clean the printhead you need to go the printer settings and command the printer for a clean up process.

The printer will automatically start cleaning the printheads and would ask you to run a quality check when the cycle is completed. You need to run the cleaning cycle at least 5 times before you get the actual results. If the print quality does not get better even after the 5th time, then you might need to change the printheads.

Step Three:
If the print quality still remains low then it might be possible that the colour setting of the printer has been disturbed. Go to printer setting on your PC and set the image and text colours to their default setting.
