Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

MY CANNON PRINTER IP3600 IS PRINTING RED IMAGES IN PINK


go to Edit > Color Settings, how is Photoshop Elements currently set? The first thing I would do is try setting it to "No color management" and see if you get better results. If this works for you, you're in luck, because color management gets tricky.In settings "No color management" does not produce acceptable results, you will have to start reading up on color management and color calibrating your devices, particularly your printer. You might want to also read Photoshop Elements Help topic "To print using color management."Most graphics software has setting for color management, but personally, I have always gotten the best results by simply turning color management off. Color management is primarily intended for people in a pre-press environment. Not everyone needs it. If you're not doing professional printing, first try working without color management before you assume you need it.

Drivers for your printer and operating system can be downloaded here:

Sounds like something has altered your Printing Preferences rather than a problem with the printer. For Windows 7, go to the Start Menu, open Device and Printers, right click on your printer icon and choose Printer Preferences, got to Features and check the setting Resizing Options; should be set to Letter.

If you need a Guide or manual for your printer it is available here.

Hi, I have a Canon Pixma MP560, and whenever I try and print something in black and white it comes out with a pink tint to it. Hope you can help.


Possible that the Ink cartridge or the head is faulty. Ink drying can make this imbalance of colours , so check to correct with the properties of the printer, If not clean several times to see any changes come about with a test print.
The last can be the ink/head unit.

Cannon MP600 will not print accurate photo colours


First clean and align the printer correctly.

You will need to ensure that you have selected Photo Glossy Paper for best results. You will also need to adjust the gamma settings and also play with the colour saturation controls to achieve a good colour balance that you are happy with.

Try printing a basic colour additive chart and comparing screen against printout and adjusting settings as required.

Also have a look at myPANTONE colour splash to get the definitive Pantone Colour Mixes at

or use a paint tool or PhotoShop etc to create solid colour blocks of basic colour to compare against.

Printing in colour


You need a NEW Print head, the cartridge may also cause this problem, however most likely the
problem is from the printhead(it's the thing the ink tanks fit into inside printer). I hope this helps, good luck. You could also run a deep cleaning and use real Canon inks and that would help as well.

Trouble printing to photo paper


The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
