Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photo pictures tend to have a pink tinge to them.

I have just been printing a few photos and they turned out great. Next one has a slight tinge of pink to it. They are all new colours!
This often happens to me when I am printing. Please help. I am almost going to give up printing my own photos.

Picture prints too pink


What you see on the screen is quite often not what prints. Sometimes the screen will not show a slight color anomoly. If your pictures were taken with a digital camera, this is quite common. Try the photo enhancement software that came with your camera, or alternately, your printer. They all supply the software because of color corrections that are at times necessary. Sometimes always. Hope that helps. Try the "Auto Correct" function that most photo correction software has. That should help!

Everything's magenta!



Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.
