Most likely you ran out of ink. Canon uses separate cartridges for yellow, magenta and cyan.

Check your ink levels. If the ink is okay, your print heads might be the problem.

Good luck

It's possible that the printer contacts are worn or dirty. You can try deep cleaning the print head up to 5 times and let the cartridge seat to see if there is any improvement. Also, try changing it back to your old one to test it and see if it gives you the same result.

Hi there I have the original canon cartridges in the printer and they all have lots of ink in them, but suddenly when printing the 'black' parts of a photograph looks purple. But when I print text in...


When you are printing a photograph, the back is resultant of combination of RGB but when you print a latter of document it usages only the black ink. So since the black is properly printed when it's combining RGB that means any of the color is low on ink. Replacing the color cartridge will solve the problem for you.

When I print the picture has a purple haze in it ?


If you are using re-manufactured ink tanks, that would explain it, a mi-matched ink tank. To clarify the ink colour is not quite right.

If genuine ink tanks (Recommended) then maybe try different paper. If using photo paper you should be using compatible / genuine paper as the different chemicals react can give this problem.

If using fax / standard paper then could be print head fault....normally get an error code.

Was printing photos all was ok then printer stoped printing black


There are 4 inks, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. When the black runs out, you are left with sort of a dark purple or brown color.

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.

Printers vanished and can't add printer


Your shell extensions have a software conflict. The offending piece of software will have to be determined and removed, or at least stopped, before re-booting the computer. You may be able to repair the problem using the System Restore option.

Installing without the disk


Gabbyone, Here is the page to download drivers for your printer. Just click on the link for the appropriate operating system you need: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:525:0:0&emeaframe=&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&&req=::::: As far as why is it printing purple it could be several reasons but some common ones are; you?ve run out of a particular ink color, one of your ink jets could be clogged or damaged, your cartridge was refilled wrong and on occasionally a software driver gets messed up. Reinstall your printer, do a test and if it still prints purple try running your printers nozzle cleaning utility. If that fails post another questions and give us some history, how long has it been since you?ve printed, are you using new Lexmark or refilled cartridges and any other pertinent information.
