Troubleshooting
You Think There is a Problem
Cannot Make Clean Prints
• Is the ink sheet or paper dirty?
• Is dirt lodged within the printer? (p. 82)
• Has condensation formed within the printer?
Leave it to dry at room temperature for a while.

may distort images. Set it at least 1 meter (3 ft.) apart.
Colors on the Computer Display and the Print Are Different
• Color generation methods are different for computer displays and printers.
Moreover, the variance may be attributable to the environment in which the display
is viewed (color and strength of the light), or to the display's color adjustment
settings.
