Dear kalium,
First, check ink level information in printer status monitor windows. Does message ink low appear in status monitor?. It could be the cyan ink has run out. Please replace the cartridge with new one

Why are my pictures too purple


Because printers use 4 color of inks: Cyan (blue) - Magenta (red) - Yellow and black (CMYK). If the picture is purple (which is just blue+red) then you probably need to replace the empty yellow. Check the black while you're at it since that is the one that gets used a lot. Always have spare cartridges handy for back up.

Why does the blue colour turn out red on printing plus the yellow is mainly pink?? I am trying to print out invites for my son's 10th birthday & he is not impressed with the pink!!


See if the ink cartridges are installed correctly. It may be that your Magenta and Yellow ink cartridges need to change places. So, try replacing the cartridges, put the Magenta where the Yellow is, and the Yellow where the Magenta is.
Usually the ink cartridge placement follows this order:
Cyan, Magenta, Yelow, Black, so see if the cartridges on your printer match. Also, check to see if there are color markings on the print-head itself, and make sure the markings match the cartridge inks.
If the ink cartridges are aligned properly and the Black is printing out just fine, you may be looking at a software issue, and you'll need to remove the printer from the Devices list (go to Start -> Control Panel -> System), unplug the printer from the PC and restart. Then, install the drivers first, and after that plug in the printer cable to the PC.

This Canon MP530 will print a nozzle check with no problems. It will color copy with no problem. No ink cartridge lights are on. It will not print a report or copy in black. What's wrong?


On your nozzle check, do you see the grid at the top (indicated by red arrow in picture below)? If you don't see this, your pigment black nozzles aren't working. The black bar at the bottom is from the dye black nozzles (small black tank). You may have either plugged nozzles or a bad print head.

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.
