Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown

I have a canon pixma mp780. lately the printer color has been off. i just printed a picture of scooby doo which has a lot of brown and red in it, and all i got was yellow with a little black and a little blue. it looks like the yellow has substituted for the brown and red colors. i cleaned the heads and did most of the maintenance that comes preset with the printer. any suggestions?

The problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Pictures coming out green


On a picture that you have printed, when you see an area of green, what color should it be? You probably have reduced flow of one of the "balancing" colors. Blue, Yellow and Red add up to Black. If your picture is supposed to be almost black and you don't have enough red, the color will pull toward the blue and yellow, giving it a green tint.

MP 780 DOESN'T PRINT


Try printing something in a colored font, like red or green and see what happens. This printer uses two black ink cartridges. It uses the larger one for black text printing. If it is dry, blocked, or damaged, your text (usually black) will not print. Changing to a color font will rule that out.

Good luck.

Canon MP780 Printer Problem


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
