How often does she print? Especially in color. If the ink is old, the cartridge might be clogged. Also, her aqua cartridge may be out, running individual cartridges has it’s up sides (not needing to waste a tricolor cartridge that may be full with 2 colors and only empty on one) but it’s mildly annoying sides like running out of one color randomly in the middle of something. (We have an Epson XP-400 and it runs on individual color cartridges, too.) If her printer has a screen on it, it should have some kind of menu and tools or something like that, and then a menu to select where you can see ink levels of each cartridge. Our printer has that and you can also open up printer info on the computer to check wi-fi status, ink levels, etc.


Google ‘user manual canon MG5250’ and you should be able to find an online copy which will help you troubleshoot and can tell you how to check ink levels. My guess is you’ll need to go buy a new aqua cartridge but they’re pretty cheap since they’re individual.


Good luck. 🙂 Hopefully you’ve figured it out already and my post is irrelevant.

@cuddlz88:  Try printing on yours again – but convert your invite to a pdf. That should stop any of the off center printing issues you are having.

Or you can give your local community college a call and have them do the printing. Usually super cheap 🙂 Just call them and ask for print services, or the printing office.

@cuddlz88:  You could always try calling canon customer support.  I’d definitely try the ink cartridge though.

@cuddlz88:  Hey Cuddlz88. Did you ever figure out how to get the printer to print in aqua? I am working with a Canon MG6200 and am having the same problem and it’s maddening!
