Printing purple instead of black on photos


Did you recently buy the cartridge? What is the expiration date on the box? It may be old or not working well, just as you have guessed, and the printer is using the color cartridge to create black when the black does not function. If you have the option return the cartridge.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

The problem is most likely your ink catcher, it is a sponge that catches any ink when it is being cleaned. you need to remove it and clean it then put it back in. there will be instructions in your manual.

Canon Pixma MP950 Ink Refill Error


replace the cartridge with a Canon as the chip has gone on the cartridge.
