Re: print color quality

This is ink related. I know your computer isn't telling you are out of ink, but it really doesn't know for sure. It is an estimate at best. From what you describe, either your cyan or magenta ink is out. If the ink levels are OK, then the printhead itself is not functioning properly. Invest in a new printhead (which comes with whole set of ink carts so you can still use the ones you have later.) Have seen it many times Ed About done with this forum

Re: print color quality

It sounds as if your adjustments are off. Does this occur when printing from any program, or only a specific one? If any program, the setting has to be in the printer driver itself. Is there a "reset to default" somewhere in the driver? Under the "Color management" tab (Start | Settings | Printer & Faxes | Canon MP390 | Properties) there might be an "Automatic" setting - choose this. Also, go through all the tabs on the printer driver and turn off anything that might affect print output - you'd be amazed how many such settings there are. Hopefully, all you have is a tweaked setting which is causing trouble...

I have a hp 3310 wireless. It prints in colour well but if you print in black most will be not clear although a line every so often is printed clearly. If you print the same document the same lines...

What you are trying to print is created in RGB. This means it is a photo that has been created in a color format that will ONLY print if you print it in full color. If you try to print your photo item in only black, it will only print what it sees in TV Colors, a combination of RED GREEN BLUE. This is why you will only get part of the image printed when only in black.

The only way to change it to print the whole image in all black, is to open the image you are trying to print in Photoshop or another professional grade photo program, and to change the settings of the image to CMYK, effectively, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black. Then, change the image once again - to GREYSCALE. This will effectively change all the colors to a SHADE OF GREY, in different HUES.

Save the picture as a JPEG, and then print from the desktop, from your picture viewing software that came with your computer, and you will see everything print out from the black ink, in greyscale.

The picture quality seems to be showing to much reds and blues in the printed photos, it has all new ink cartridges, and i've done a head clean !

Please check the nozzle check
If all nozzle check ok........ you mean that your printer is ok.
You have settings your photoshop color setting profile.
Go to color settings from file or edit menu
Select the profile "US Prepress default"
Mark the advance mode.
And check your color print

Color printing

To get the optimum quality print for your color prints of course everything has to be set just right. On your printer installation and print menu it will ask you if you want letter quality print or picture quality, make sure that you are using the right options in this case. Also be sure that all your ink cartridges are at least half full for print purposes. God bless you

Green hue to photos

Canon, in its infinite wisdom, markets two sets of inks with the "part" number 3e. One of these, labeled simply with the color, is suitable for the i560 printer. The newer inks, labeled as "Photo" + the color, are not. Silly me. I just looked at the number and bought the wrong stuff.

Excessive Yellow ink use

The printer software should have an option for head cleaning & alignment. Make sure to run these maintenance options and see the results. You may need to re-run the tests.

Sometimes generic inks can cause a problem, so after cleaning, try to use an oem cartridge (same company as your printer) and observe the results.
