I have had this happen several times with different colors. I wasted an incredible amount of ink cleaning and deep cleaning, even replacing the ink tank with no success. I found something on this site telling me to remove all ink cartridges, unplug the printer for 5 minutes then replace them as the printer asked for them, one by one. I did that with no success. I was ready to toss the printer. I then searched Canon's website under "prints missing colors" which gave a number of things to try. I cleaned the print head using their directions and all my colors are back. Hope this helps. By the way, on Canon's website, they give a number of things to try for this. Just type in "prints missing colors" in the support section.
Hi! You may need to run MAINTENANCE head cleaning. It may be clogged thats why its not printing in color correctly. Be sure that you have good set of cartridges for if one is empty it usually malfunctions. Hope this helps and have a good one!
I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.
April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.
Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.
I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.
I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.
You can clean the heads with software function. Open epson print center maintenance clean head. Or Right click on printer icon on task bar, Select clean head.
Even though the Miro cartridge is compatible the ink color, texture, drying time, is different. Resulting in colors coming out wrong. Try going to Miro jets site & download printer driver or color correction file for your printer. Most provide them.
Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!
I've had similar color management problems. I've lacked consistent color management from day one with this printer. I use standard Epson ICC profiles for paper /printer combinations. In setup I select the specific paper type (mostly Epson Premium Luster paper. SP4800 PLPP PK 288.icc profile. I use Print with Preview, Color Handling "No Color Management". Under Print Setup I select Premium LusterPhoto Paper. Under Printer Color Management I select Off (No color management). Prints with these settings are so far off from the colors in the preview image the only thing they are good for is the shredder. In addition, I can use the same profile and printer settins and prints are different from one print to the next without changing any settings. Very frustrating. I've gone through several hundred dollars trying to get consistent color management. I also use an Eye One Greytag Mcbeth color management tool for both monitor, and for some papers, custom profiling. Nothing seems to improve. I did talk with a consultant and was advised to do a good head cleaning (which was done) and also use Disk Utility to repair permissions (also done) but still no improvement. My consultant from a reputable Pro Photo source advised me that I was not alone and that he ad numerous users who were experiencing similar color management problems. This vendor no longer carries Epson because of these continuing problems. Try the head cleaning and repairing permissions. As for me, I've been struggling twith these problems for over a year. I'm looing at trading in my Epson 4800 for an HPZ3100. This is probably overkill for my needs as it is 24 inch capacity but i like that it has an Euye One photo sensitometer built into the print heads. I'll be going to the vendor and testing this unit later this week.
Sounds like your printer is malfunctioning and has a problem. First I would delete this printer then reboot your computer and reinstall it and try again. If no success printer needs to go to shop or replace it.
Try printer preferences.
START/PRINTERS/Right Click on printer/ printer preferences.
Gives you the various Options, print test page-clean heads et,c et,c.
If you have all the software and drivers installed, you should also get these options in the printers default Program.
