    hello, very new here. i recently was given a cannon BJC-4100 printer. after purchasing new cartridges and replacing them i am still having trouble.

    i can get it to print things, color is fine. however the black is very light and appears as it would when the cartridge needs to be replaced.

    i tried to preform a nozzle check and preform a cleaning, but neither one will print. after a few minutes i get an error.

    any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks :)

    Check the print quality setting of your printer. If it is set on draft quality you can get the results you are describing. Hope that helps.

    Hi – Welcome to TSG.

    You want to change the settings in the printer folder or they have to be set each time you print. The printer folder can be accessed through control panel or Settings>Printers on Win98/ME. Select your printer and then printer>properties.

    Don’t have a clue why it won’t do a clean and test. This page has links to driver upgrades according to your OS and some instructions and FAQs: http://www.usa.canon.com/html/conCprTechSupport.jsp?modelid=7974&section=10216&pname=BJC-4100
