Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

Photos too red

My printer has always produced beautiful photos - until now. All my photos are coming out really, really dark and with a very red cast. I have done all the proper maintenance and replaced all the ink cartridges - still awful. The pictures don't look like anything on my screen (I have tried both scanned pictures and those from a cd).

Why are my photos taken with my iPhone 5 suddenly coming out off color and very dark?


First, I suggest you look into the camera lens. Perhaps it is not clean? Next, how does the preview image look before snapping the picture? If the preview is good then the problem may be in automatic post-process settings.

All of a sudden I get a dark brown area in my photos. Lens has always worked beautifully. Now every photo i take has a dark brownish goldish stripe across one side or down the middle.


Check it with other camera because it is possible it is not your lenses fault but your cameras. Check the back side of the lense for any fingerprints or marks or ect.

Bad yellow cast to photos when printed


If you have a yellow cast to your photos, the problem might not be your printer. If you're using a digital camera, indoors under incandescent lighting without a flash your pictures will look yellow.
If this is the case, set your camera's White Balance to Incandescent lighting or use the flash. If all of your pictures, even those taken in daylight, look yellow you'll have to adjust the colors on your printer using the "toolbox" software that comes with it and back the yellow off. I've found that HP printers tend to have better color rendition than Canon.

Dark pictures


Your aperature setting is too close. Go to menu and go to your aperature setting it allows how much light is let in open it up a setting at a time until you have enough light to get great photos.

Yellow is a greenish color


Try printing this test pattern. I got this from this other website. But as ridiculous as I may sound, did you put the yellow cartridge into the Cyan compartment? Because to produce green you need to combine yellow and cyan. This test pattern will tell you which colors are not working properly. Then we can trace which cartridge is the problem or not. Let me know the colors that come out.27dfd86.jpg

Very dark photos


I have same problem, but it wasnt always like this. The first year I had the printer it was fine. We didnt use it for a while and now all images are very dark. The only thing that has changed is all the other photo management software that was installed with new cameras and accessories. I removed all the "Film Factory" , "Corel Photo Manager 6", and ancillary software, reinstalled the R300 drivers, and still getting dark images. I also played around with the printer settings regarding paper type, color management, and gamma with little to no effect.
