You may try
1) color ink cartridge--- no enough ink or the cartridge ink channel dryer and constipated, refill ink and put down the cartridge bottom surface to water a little for 1 hr, then set back. or change a new cartridge if not fixed go next
2) print head--- the ink channel dryer and constipated, take out print head clean it's ink channel using cleaner or steep in water (do not touch circuit pin area with water) 20 minutes or longer. then set back and test (you can do more times), still not fixed, your print head have to change.

    you may try this comment if solution #1 tough

    1) do clean nozzle cycle (do more times) until print normal

    2) clean the color ink cartridge wicks using soft paper, still not fixed go next

    3) clean print head nozzle area, power on and open top cover,the cartridge moving away the parking lot and then pull out power lead, and put a soft paper with a little solvent (making it quite damp, but not totally soaked)
    on the parking lot (see the pump cap area with spongy pad covered in ink and match the lot size same), manually moving the carriage (slow and very careful) to the parking lot ( the paper will raise upto print head) to stay 10 minutes then gentlely

    moving away the parking lot, you may look what color down to the paper, do same thing untill to see three color and black appear on the damped paper.

I would see if you could clean the light- however if the led for your printer's lightsource is showing up purple when it is supposed to be white... you may need to see about an RMA if in warranty or a new printer.

When printing dark blue or purple, it came out as dark or light cyan. Please advice.


Don't know what type of printer you have since you did not supply that info. But it sounds like the magenta or red ink/toner is not working on your machine. Since purple is made from using blue and red. Since you are only getting a cyan or blue color, the printer is not outputing the red. Check the red toner/ink cartridge to see if it is empty. Hope this helps.

When printing pictures, they are discolored


You are running low on your color ink cartridge. It cannot mix the primary colors right anymore and the color images start getting a pink-purple tinge to them. Get a new set of cartidges and install them and this should fix the problem fine. Hope this helps.

Want a B&W copy from colored sheet of paper w/o dark background.


It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.
