Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Colors not correct

In a regular Word text document, red has become more of a magenta color, blue text appears to be purple, and green text is a light blue or aqua color. The cartridges are not low, and I have performed every cleaning solution possible. It was printing fine before. The same document has been printed many times.

Only prints in green and blue

You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.

I have all the correct color cartridges on my MP530 color printer. All of the sudden it coated a blue tint to my color printings. My print out look blue. Any suggestions I can correct the printer to print...

Just make sure the right colors are in the right place, photo magenta is not interchangeable regular magenta. Also run the nozzle check to make sure all colors print, if after 2 deep clean cycles you don't have all colors you may need a new printhead.

Epson c88 how print in magenta

Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.
