Question about Canon I900D InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

No pink tone in skin tone

I am trying to print off photos of people. When I print on photo paper for some reason it will not print any pink to the skin tone. The pictures print out in the proper tones if I use regular printer paper but it would sure be nice to be able to use picture paper. This problem happens whether I use Canon glossy paper or HP soft gloss... even the back of the photo paper will not pick up the pink in the skin tone.

Recently replaced the magenta cartridge and it was printing everything in pink tones (but the magenta still registers full). Just replaced light cyan cartridge and now its not printing full lines of text...


I'm not really sure, but if I were you, Id work with all the cartridges. Moisten a lintless soft paper or tissue and gently wipe printhead of each cartridge. Be sure you 'seat" them carefully and securely. I think one or more cartridges is empty OR dry. See if this helps a bit.

Cannon MP600 will not print accurate photo colours


First clean and align the printer correctly.

You will need to ensure that you have selected Photo Glossy Paper for best results. You will also need to adjust the gamma settings and also play with the colour saturation controls to achieve a good colour balance that you are happy with.

Try printing a basic colour additive chart and comparing screen against printout and adjusting settings as required.

Also have a look at myPANTONE colour splash to get the definitive Pantone Colour Mixes at

or use a paint tool or PhotoShop etc to create solid colour blocks of basic colour to compare against.

Epson Stylus Photo R340 Faces in photo are printing day-glo green


Possible printhead or driver issue.
Are you using Adobe photoshop? Please try to print also using a different application to isolate the issue.
Make sure that you are using correct epson cartridges.
Please print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing colors or missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver.
If the nozzle check pattern printed out successfully, please trash and re-install the drivers. The driver is available on epson.com

Very slow printing


I'm not sure that there is a problem here.  The correlation between print speed and print quality, 
especially on InkJet printers, is a negative one.  That is, the higher the quality setting, the lower 
the speed. So, if you're selecting the greatest quality for your print option you will suffer the 
lowest output speed.  This is because the printer is taking time to ensure that it prints each 
minute detail onto the page.
 
If you are looking to keep the quality optimal, one solution may be to select a different grade of 
photo paper (or perhaps one with a different coating [matte, semi, gloss]) and test to see if you 
can lower the quality setting on these higher-end paper types and still achieve your desired 
results.

To get what you want from your printing paper, you will have to consider what you like in a print, 
how you intend to use your prints, and what you are willing to pay to achieve this at home. 
Some things to think about include: paper thickness, color brilliance and resistance to fading. 



1. Paper Thickness
When it comes to paper thickness, paper that resembles the look and feel of traditional prints 
will be the best if you like to print a lot of photos and pass them around. Thick paper just feels 
right in your hands and will also stand up better to handling. However, if you are going to put 
the majority of your photos straight into an album, a thinner paper may work just as well for you.



2. Color Brilliance
To ensure the photo paper you purchase produces good color, you can purchase small sheaves 
of a short list of photo papers which you think will suit you. Next, print a series of colorful test 
photos on each to see which has the best color. If you can incorporate colorful photos that also 
have prominent straight lines and people in them, you will also be able to check the quality of 
sharpness and skin tones in the same test.



3. Resistance to Fading
Always try to check the resistance of the paper to fading. Simply take your batch of test photos 
and tape them to the window that gets the most sunlight throughout the day. Then, before you 
go in to pick up a batch of replacement paper, check to see which photos, if any, are showing 
signs of fading. Any paper that shows signs of fading in this short time frame should be avoided.


4. Changing Your Ink

It is also important to remember that any time you change ink for your printer, you may find 
yourself getting dramatically different results.

Everything's magenta!



Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.

I assume you're using photo paper.

Go to File/Print. Click Properties. Click Media Type and chose the photo paper you are using, whether it's Photo Paper Pro or whatever. If you're printing using Plain paper and you have photo paper in the printer, you'll get the stripes.

Hope that helps
