My color cartridge does not utilize its full color spectrum. all my print jobs are green. black and white works fine. I've already changed out the cartridge twice. Please advise! thanks.


You may have a clogged printer head. Try using HP's cleaning utility.

In general, you can access the printer's maintenance option at CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES.

Right-click the desired printer model, then click PRINTING PREFERENCES.

Look for the MAINTENANCE tab. The options may not be the same, depeding on the brand of the printer. Run the head cleaning utility.

Test printer by printing a test page. Repeat the process if it doesn't give you the correct output.

Also, try to run the ALIGNMENT utility.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you for using fixya and have a nice day ^_^

Hi
Most Inkjets have maintenance software installed in the computer itself where the printer is attached.
If you would like to try, please click on Start/Printers and Faxes/ A new window will pop up where your Canon Pixma MP500 will be shown. Right click on the Canon icon and left click on the Properties.
A new window will pop up. See if there is any Utilities or Maintenance Tab. If none, try clicking on Printing Preferences. Another window will pop up. Normally this is where your Maintenance Option is displayed. Clicking on the Maintenance (sometimes they use Utilities) Tab, a list of maintenance options will be displayed.
Pls follow the on screen instructions. They icons represent the action you would want done like head cleaning, alignment, roller cleaning etc. Clicking on the icon initiate the action.
Should you still need a copy of the User's Manual, it may be downloaded from www.usa.canon.com.

Thanks

Re Canon 2600 printer.I recently purchased a black Ink cartridge and replaced the old one. A week later the color cartridge also shows empty even though I hardly use color. Can I not print in greyscale...


Hi,
Please follow the instructions below from Cannon support page...

Setting the Ink Cartridge When printing, you can specify which ink cartridge to use. This is convenient if one of the ink cartridges becomes empty, you can continue printing by specifying the ink cartridge that still has ink. Note:
  • When the following settings are configured, Black Only is disabled. The color ink cartridge is used to print.
  • A type of paper other than Plain Paper is selected for Media Type on the Main tab.
  • Borderless Printing is checked on the Page Setup tab.
  • Canon recommends that you use the ink cartridges installed in the printer and not remove them until the ink runs out.

You can set the Ink Cartridge Settings from the Maintenance tab in the printer driver.
To access the printer driver from the application software, click here.
