I would first try replacing the color cartridge.
Then try the cleaning utility.

  1. Double-click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon (printer problem - c01367004.gif ) on the taskbar. The HP Solution Center screen opens.
  2. From the HP Solution Center , click the Settings menu.
  3. Click Printer Toolbox . The Printer Toolbox opens.
  4. Click Clean the Print Cartridges .
  5. Click Clean and then follow the on-screen instructions.
If that doesn't work remove the cartridges and try cleaning in and around the casing with a cotton swab and alcohol.

Why won't my printer print purple?


Your Cannon printer is not the problem. You will get different print color depending on the paper you are using, For example you will get different print result if you print on color paper than on white paper and a different print if you print on photo paper. Another alternative is to lighten the tone of your purple. I don't know what your objective is and what project you're working on but I hope this might help.

The color prints sheet is coloring light purple instead of grey. I check the black ink but is still half full.


grey is often made up of all the colours, so if the greys are purple it would be the Yellow missing or not printing completely. Try a printer head clean.

Printing purple instead of black on photos


Did you recently buy the cartridge? What is the expiration date on the box? It may be old or not working well, just as you have guessed, and the printer is using the color cartridge to create black when the black does not function. If you have the option return the cartridge.

Printer is printing wrong colors


Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.

Link to the manual - Aligning print cartridges is on Page 70.

When printing pictures, they are discolored


You are running low on your color ink cartridge. It cannot mix the primary colors right anymore and the color images start getting a pink-purple tinge to them. Get a new set of cartidges and install them and this should fix the problem fine. Hope this helps.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Purple Color Printing in b&w mode


When you do nozzle cleaning there is a print test that canon performs. I think it prints out each color. Did the Colors come out correctly? Cuz from there I think you can determine which color is really clogged. I have the solution somewhere but I need to know if the test print comes out correctly or not.
