    How about help with a photo printer?

    So I just about a canon IP4200 printer. Im actually using it to print out high resolution color lables.

    Im pretty happy with it, except for the blacks are not very sharp. All of the colors have very sharp lines and i can go very small with the font size (like so small you cant read it) however at even regular font sizes, the blacks just are not sharp. Its almost as if the printer is squirting too much black ink.

    Any input?

    Or am I just a newb?

    Ok, I just asked the printer guy at work (I work at Canon). He said that he uses the 4200 for label printing as that is what is sitting on his desk.

    His suggestions are as follows:

    *Are you using genuine Canon ink?
    *Check your print heads and do a self clean. The heads might be dirty.
    *If you are printing text on the labels, try using draft mode.

    good luck!

    i went into the control panel thing and turned down the black intensity. Worked perfect.
