My Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One prints faded, border less photos
I have a PIXMA MX310 Office All-In-One. When I print color photos with a standard border from my iMac computer (Mac OSX Snow Leopard O/S) my printouts are fine. But when I print border less photos, the printouts are faded and washed out. Any thoughts? Thank you. Jim Zoller

This sounds like a driver/software issue. I would uninstall the drivers and software for the printer and reinstall.
Also, take the ink cartridges out and clean them with a little bit of alcohol. Be careful not to use too much alcohol, I prefer the little hand wipeys. The cartridges have a little chip on the bottom of them that basically program the memory of the printer. If these are damaged or dirty, this could be the problem.
Hi there Jzoller,From what application are you printing those images or photos? It could be a setting from that application and not from the printer. Have you tried testing by creating a new document from another application and print it from there? Also, make sure that before you hit "Print", check on the settings, as it may be set to print into grayscale.Please let me know of your thoughts and comments. Thank you.
