Canon IP4000 duplex problem (with text)
I've come across a strange problem with my IP4000:
When I print plain text using only one side of the paper it uses the text black cartridge and I get fast printing, near lazer quality.
When I print the same thing using both sides of paper (duplex option switched on), it uses the photo black and I get slow printing, pale & fuzzy quality.
I have the 1.8 drivers, plain paper and text setting selected.
Does anyone else get the same thing?
I found the answer to my problem on the Canon site.
It seems that this is a 'feature' of duplex printing. Less black ink is used to prevent the ink from rubbing onto internal components.
Makes the duplex option kinda useless. Wished they had said that on the box.
