Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Everything's magenta! Don't know why, but everything I print comes out deep pink. Yesterday, I replaced my magenta cartridge (thinking maybe it was leaking), and I got about 20 pages of great printing. Then everything turned deep pink again. Any suggestions! Thanks, Gretchen in Philly

Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.

Just purchased the MP560 printer & I'm unable to get my images to print in red or pink. I've replaced my ink, completed the print test and my magenta does not print. I've performed the cleaning &...


The printer must be cleaned where the cartridge rests as this must be soiled with ink residues. If this does not help should be checked by removing all the cartridges and clean them one to one place back to the printer and after testing. It is easy to perform this cleanup must use a "q-tip "and carefully try to clean all cartridges and all you can see you have old ink as this stand the mechanism and do not allow the cartridges to work properly. Luck!!!

Recently replaced the magenta cartridge and it was printing everything in pink tones (but the magenta still registers full). Just replaced light cyan cartridge and now its not printing full lines of text...


I'm not really sure, but if I were you, Id work with all the cartridges. Moisten a lintless soft paper or tissue and gently wipe printhead of each cartridge. Be sure you 'seat" them carefully and securely. I think one or more cartridges is empty OR dry. See if this helps a bit.

HP Photosmart 3210xi - some colors (magentas) will not print


Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.

Canon pixma ip4300 - magenta ink is recognized but not printing


Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

Right side of every page has pink strip down page


Either your magenta cartridge is leaking out of the right corner or you have a defective magenta drum.
(maybe it got scratched when changing the cartridge?) If it's the magenta drum, you have to replace all the drums since they come in one unit. OEM part only.

Everything prints pink! Head cleaning help on test page but next print was pink again.


I have a Canon S9000 and when this happened to me it was because the magenta or photo magenta cartridge leaked and spread. I had just refilled the cartridge and the plug didn't have a tight enough seal.
I took out the cartridges and used a Q-tip, OK, a TON of Q-tips, with the cleaner fluid from the refill kit on them and cleaned out the bottom of the holders where each cartridge fits.
I also had to do this to the ink ports of the cartridges themselves because they were tainted as well. I ran the head cleaning program a couple of times and once it was as good as it was going to get, I repeated the cleaning of the holders again, bought all new cartridges and ran the head cleaning program again until the problem was gone.

My magenta will not print well


Here's what you should do. Remove all ink cartridges. Get some rubbing alcohol, preferrably 91% proof (leaves less moisture) Get a couple normal paper towels. Check each cartridge for dried ink and remove it using an alcohol wetted paper towel. (The deep cleaning procedures aren't always effective.) The gold contacts on each cartridge should be gold when you are done. Use the same procedure on the gold contacts of the ink cartridge housing inside the printer. Take your time, do it well. If that does not fix the problem, then do the following. Switch the black and magenta cartridge. Some printers won't print when you do this, other printers don't know the difference. If your printer is the later, then attempt a print job using a page that has a line of both black and magenta text. If you see a black print, then the problem is your magenta cartridge (despite having installed a new one) If the magenta prints, then you know the magenta cartridge is good. If the magenta prints but the black doesn't, then you have a printer failure. Let me know your results. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
