The printer is brand new (bought it today) and when printing on glossy paper (Kodak or HP..) It's too much black all the way! I knew the i865, it was perfect, fast drying etc...

but this ip 6000d gives too much! Here's a picture of the results I get:

Left is original bmp, right is a photo of a glossy print of it. "Glossy photo paper" setting, everything else default, high resolution.

The settings are the same as for the i865 I had and who was able to print fine.

I will post more compare pictures.

Here is a paper printed back a few weeks ago.

-The big full picture is printed by the canon i865.
-The two small rectangles are printed by the canon ip6000d
-the higher of the two is printed with "ink intensity" settings to -20.

There is a problem indeed. :sad:

You bet it's the paper.

Stick with Canon or Epson paper for Glossy.

Using HP or Kodak paper you are just asking for massive quality issues.

Did you try the "glossy plus" or the "transparency" paper type? I can print using the glossy plus paper setting using Kodak premium glossy paper and the prints look perfect to me. I have an i960 though, not an ipXXXX.

BTW, I wasn't able to view your sample pictures. The download was only a fraction of the way on the progress bar after about 45 seconds so I gave up.
