I am having color problems with cyan and magenta with my i9900 printer. I need to understand how Cyan, Photo Cyan, Magenta and Photo Magenta affect the other colors? I know Cyan and Yellow make Green and Magenta and Yellow make Red.

My canon i9900 prints photos with an over abundance of red


Check your inks and make sure you don't have photo cyan where the cyan should be, and print a nozzle check to see that all colors are printing. Also make sure photo magenta and regular magenta are in the right places.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

That happens if you put photo cyan where the plain cyan ink should be, also photo magenta is too weak to be used in the magenta slot. I've also seen generic inks that weren't the right colors.

My printer was printing correctly earlier in the day. I have just replaced two of the ink tanks - the others all have sufficient ink in them. I now have washed out, incorrect colours.


Make sure you didn't put photo magenta or photo cyan where the regular magenta and cyan go, the photo colors are not dark enough, and don't make the proper colors when you print.

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

HP Deskjet F2100 All-in-one has two slots for printer cartidges. Which of these two slots is meant for photo cartidge?


The photo cartridge replaces the black cartridge. It is used along with the color cartridge to provide better photo's.

The photo cartridge contains photo black, light cyan and light magenta while the color cartridge provides cyan, magenta and yellow. Both photo and color cartridges need to be installed and working for proper photo printing.

Problem with color quality - Canon PIXMA iP4000


i had this problem... its the ink! Check you are using magenta and NOT "photo magenta", and also that you are using "cyan" and NOT "PHOTO cyan"... basically photo cyan, photo magenta and photo yellow are not designed for the ip4000, if you check the smallprint on the box it does not list the ip4000.

This exact problem happened to me and it was driving me crazy. I think the "photo" versions of the inks are for printers that take two tanks of each colour, and the photo version is used for very subtle colours... so if you are ONLY using these inks, photos will appear washed out, yellow etc
