Re: color is not correct in printing

Buy a nozzle unclogging kit from ebay. I have almost the same problem and about to try cleaning my nozzle.

Re: color is not correct in printing

It is possible that you have a clogged nozzle this is not a user serviceable part, you'd pretty much have to bring it in for service

My Canon Pixma MP258 printer can't print the red color but other colors are okay.When I print out any words or pictures that needs red color,it becomes green color.I don't know what's wrong...


1. Press START - Devices and Printers
2. Right-click the Canon MP258 series - select Printing preferences
3. Click Maintenance - Cleaning
4. Select All Colors BK, C, M, Y - Execute
5. Wait until the process is finished (Do not start another operation until the cleaning has finished).
6. Click Print Check Pattern OK


If the results print out like this, there are two possibilities:
1. Red ink in the cartridge runs out. Solution: injecting with red ink
2. If the red ink has been filled, and check pattern is still not out, meaning the color cartridge error.
Solution: replace the cartridges

Mfc 5860 red printing green - already checked print levels. all are fine.

1. Confirm that the colors are incorrect by printing a Print Quality Check Sheet

a. Press INK.

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Test Print.

c. Press OK.

d. Use the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Quality.

e. Press OK.


The machine will generate the Print Quality Check Sheet.

2. The LCD will ask "IS QUALITY OK? 1. YES 2. NO"

a. Press STOP/EXIT to return to the "Date and Time" display.

3. Evaluate the Print Quality Check Sheet.

On the Print Quality Check Sheet each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96 individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.

NOTE: Cyan is the light blue color and magenta is the pinkish color.

a. If the colors on the Print Quality Check Sheet do not match the sequence listed above then the ink cartridges are most likely installed in the wrong order. Continue to STEP 4 to resolve this.

4. Open the Ink Refill cover.

5. Open the cartridge covers of the colors that do not appear in the correct order.

6. Remove the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots. On Brother Genuine Cartridges the color of the label will match the color of the cartridge cover.

7. Run a "Setup Purge". A Setup Purge is necessary to replace the ink in the ink supply tubes with the correct color. One or more of the ink cartridges may run empty during this process. If they do, replace the empty cartridge with a Brother Genuine Ink Cartridge before continuing the process.

a. Press MENU - BLACK START - MENU. The LCD will display Maintenance.

b. Press 7-6, The LCD will display CLEANING ALL

c. Press 6, the LCD will display eINIT__P ALL

d. Press the RIGHT ARROW key until one of the colors that was installed incorrectly is displayed. i.e. eINIT__P CYAN.

e. Press the BLACK START Key.

  • After the machine completes the Setup Purge it will return to the Standby Display.

8. Print another Print Quality Check Sheet

a. Press INK.

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Test Print.

c. Press OK.

d. Use the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Quality.

e. Press OK.


9. The machine will generate another Print Quality Check Sheet.

a. If all four colors printed correctly the issue is resolved.

b. If one or more of the colors are still not printing in the correct order repeat STEPS 4 - 8.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color

Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

1310 printing problem

To use the Color Correction Wizard, go to the printer's Color properties page, select User-defined color correction , then click Start Color Correction Wizard button. The Color Correction Wizard helps the user perform the following steps:
  1. Choose the sample picture to be used. This can be the document that's open in the current application, or one of several samples provided by Hewlett-Packard.
  2. Choose the type of correction to be applied to the picture. The brightness, the contrast, or the color balance can be varied.
  3. The Wizard prints the same picture ten times with different degrees of correction applied to it.
  4. Look at the printout and decide which of the ten is preferred.
A combination of corrections of different kinds can be used. For example, when selecting a brightness correction, the Wizard can be instructed to give another set of ten prints from which to select the contrast, or the color balance. When the final selection is made, the combination of corrections that have been chosen will be saved. This combination may be saved and used in future whenever selecting User-defined color correction .
