what's the trick to getting realistic images? Everything I print has a green cast to it and is far from photo quality. Even my black looks green (Canon ip3600). UGH
Where did you get your cartrideges?
Remember NEVER put regular ink into a printer for edible ink. Start a brand new printer with the edible ink cartridges and follow the printer setup in its manual.
Printing that comes out too green or too red means that there is something wrong with:
--colour settings (check your printer manual for how to test)
--print head (do a head clean cycle and then check on a piece of writing paper)
--cartridges (check that all seal plugs are tight in their holes, and some lower quality cartridges leak in use)
If it is the print head on a new printer, you have a warranty. You will have to replace the edible ink with the OEM cartridges to return the printer for replacement. Run the setup/head clean a few times to get the cartridges flowing.
If it's the cartridges, contact icingimages.com as they sell the highest quality of refillable cartridges for edible printing. The $$$ is not significant once you factor in the cost of wasted sugar sheets.
FYI if you are one of us geeks who uses refillable cartridges for regular printing on another printer, you already know which brands are the best. Buy an extra set for use as cleaner cartridges.
HEYYYY most Christian countries just had a major holy day. People were celebrating with their families and NOT baking cakes. Or reading about problems.
Test your printer paper feed with regular writing paper. There should be instructions with your printer manual, and also online support from Canon.
Once you are sure that you can feed regular writing paper, there are special settings for the sugar sheets because they are thicker. The instructions are in your printer software "help" section. Look at www.icingimages.com for more information.
The printer may be trying to pull from the bottom tray rather than the back. Put a regular piece of paper in the bottom try, it iwll probably pull from there. Then through your printer properties, change your settings to have your paper pull from the back tray.
