IP3300 Problem with greyscale photo prints

Greyscale Photograph printouts are ok on PLAIN paper, But, when I attempt to print a Photograph in Greyscale (by ticking the Box) on any Hi-Res or Photo-Paper, it always turns out Sepia tinted similar to a Red shifted colour balance. I've tried head-cleaning, turning it off/on, re-installing the printer software and trying FAQ's?. No joy so far.

Printer does not print color photo greyscale


You will need to get that color cartridge. When printing a photo the printer will pull from both color and black to make a grey scale picture

I have a canon ip4200. On plain paper, standard print, prints in pale, pale lavender/blue, with hyperlink in blue (clearly seen on paper); on high and custom, the print is barely visible, with hyperlink...


Ok so on reading this it appears that your are barely printing black.
1. have you tried a genuine canon cartridge?
2. have your performed cleaning on the black cartridge?
3. Start the printer and ask it to print something. While it is printing kill the power and gently move the carriage to the left. On the right side of the machine you can now see the purge unit. You will need a torch shining on the purge unit. check it to see if there is a paper scrap anywhere near or on the purge. It may be soaked in ink so may not be easly seen.If so remove it and perform cleaning again.
4. Clean the wipers on the purge with a dry cotton bud.

If none of this works then its looks like a blocked/weak printhead and you will need to replace it.

Good luck

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

QUESTION FOR DON_FARR


whenever you print greyscale what actually happen is that the printer mixes the red, blue and yellow to give the output in gray scale. See if you mix red, blue and yellow ink in the right proportion it gives you very close to black. just try to print your greyscale with your black ink finished you will still get the same print quality as when the black has ink in it. Or find a way seal the nuzzle of the black in and print your greyscale. check what results.

I do not want to buy color inks. greyscale printing is all i need


Hello Lisa; Your machine can't satisfy what you want, because this machine make for color purpose, therefor, if they run out any cartridge they don't work, same reason if you don't want color printer why don't buy black and white ?

Canon i990 prints are too "pink"


I had the same problem and it turned out to be a combination of the actual paper and media type. Brother brand paper just printed way too pink and some Ilford papers did also. I had an image that was desaturated and even when printing as a greyscale came out magenta.
Was three nights of hard work to get sorted. try printing on plain paper with media type set to plain paper. good luck with it though, I know how frustrating it can be!
