    Hello,



    My MP780 does the exact same thing! It's such a bummer because I absolutly love this printer. I've tried all the cleanings and replaced all the ink. It still isn't fixed. Did you ever find an answer tot he problem?

    It just started printing a beige or dark peach for grey. Blue looks like a dark purple. I have had this printer for roughly 4 years now. Up until today it did a great job.
    I have tried everything from replacing cartridges, multiple cleaning etc.. NO LUCK ARRRRGH!

My canon MX 410 is printing blue as pink


the fast and sure way is to reinstall both the program and the printer drivers. when uninstalling, make sure to delete user settings as well if the uninstaller ask for it. next, reboot your computer and reinstall drivers and software.
if the problem's still there, you can try replacing the cartridge again. if it's still not better after a few full page color prints, the printer is broken.

Most likely replacing the cyan print cartridge will clear this right up. The part number is 113R00719 for the standard capacity. Iteminc.com has this in stock and ships same day for $99. Good luck, and thanks for using fixya!

My printer is running low on black ink and i'd like to use blue


Sorry but you cannot select the default color. What you can do is to set the color or your text in navy blue.
You can also select color cartridges only from: Printer Properties -> Mainteinance -> Ink Cartridge Settings.
And then from Main tab select Grayscale Printing.
Good Luck.

Exactly how is it printing?

With words not printing properly?
On my epson, I went and bought Cheaper Ink, which was supposed to be compatible,and it wasnt!

What the epson, did, was print out in different colors.
the green was blue and yellow was pink, etc.

Epson, restricts you from buying other brands, like that. It makes you buy their Brand !!!!!!!
Good Luck.

Since it's a brand new printer it's probably not the printer, but your set up . Not knowing what program you are printing from, I can't advise beyond that 1) check the reference for the program you are printing from about setting up your color to be compatible with your printer (look under color management). Usually it has to do with your file's color profile matching the printer profile.

Printer is printing wrong colors


Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.
