I put a new hp tri colour cartridge in my printer ....when it prints off test sheets it prints in colour but when i try to print off colour documents it only prints black and white


There's an option under your print setting for color or black and white. When you select to print a window will pop up. make sure that you have the color print selected. Hope this helps

Printer head problem?


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call Canon Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the Canon Cartridges

Colour 'washes out' with multi page printing


Hi,

follow the step by step solution from kodak.

Choose All-in-one printer and then Print quality and follow the further steps. I think it's a problem with your printhead.

Prints light purple instead of grey


I think your Black Cartridge is Empty. Check it and replace it with the new one.

Your Printer is trying to produce Black Colour from your Colour Cartridge with a mix of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow.

Printing Photo's is too light.


First thing, are your printer ink cartridges empty?  If it is, or is very close to it, this may affect the quality of your photos.
If quantity of ink is not your problem, did you go under printer properties, and in options/settings---check the slow speed, or maximum quality of your photo.  You can even check what type of paper you are using so the printer can sdjust more specifically.

Colour Cast


Updated section
This red issue has been bugging me over the last week. I have now created over 50 A4 prints of my test file and it was after reading a post from Dan P that the answer came to me. I had been trying to correct the over saturated reds by reducing it in curves, levels and colour balance. Of course this was not the way to go, unless the image has an overall cast. The better method is to enter into Selective Colour within Photoshop and adjust just the red only. The values I have used are Cyan + 15 (this reduces the red), Magenta -5 (removes the remaining traces), Yellow +10 (removes the blue and warms up the skin again), Black -15 (lifts the image). Save the settings and reload them on future images. Create an action and use one of your Function keys to apply the Selective Colours. Incorporate the print command within the same action, this way you can be certain that the selective colour will be applied each time you print. This may not be the ideal solution, but for me it will do for the time being, until Canon come up with a new profile. I expect to make colour adjustments on most images and this is just one of those steps.
8500_06.jpg ink.jpg Use the Selective colour adjustment - it works The ink levels after 55 A4 prints - I don't think so final-test.jpg final-reels.jpg As near perfect as I can get it Reels are now spot on Note: The above solution is a work-a-round which cures the excess red, once you apply the Selective Colour adjustment the screen image will not look right. The adjustment is applied to correct the printed version. Like so many things digital (and analog) you have to make adjustments to suit your own preferences. The strong vivid colours produced by the ip8500 will appeal to some, others may want to tweak their settings.
As a final note, I have just looked at the ink levels after 55 A4 prints and wow, this printer only uses the light Cyan and Magenta, the rest of the colours are all unused. I don't think so somehow. Canon, I think this does indicate that you have a problem with the driver and have another look at the profiles while you are fixing that.
Would I buy this printer?
Given that creating a new profile is not a major problem and I am sure a new one will follow very shortly, then yes I would buy it. Using Photoshop I have managed to correct the colours to suit my taste, however, some may like the bolder colours out of the box. The ip8500 features and image quality makes this printer stand out from the competition.
