Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pixma MP830 is printing things green that should be red

All the other colors print the correct color but when something red is printed, it is green - a nice regular green - not some color you might get when a cartridge is out. All cartridges are new. Any help is appreciated

When you change all new cartridges (make sure all cartridge ok, and the cartridge pins connection ok) still red color lost, it is the trouble at print head ink chanel some of that is too dry for longer time less using , most CANON printer head is separated from the ink cartridge, two way you may try:
1) take out the ink cartridge, drop down a little the special cleaner (best clean tools buy from dealer), to the head ink chanel hole, then set back the ink cartridge and waiting minutes
2) try put the print head bottom surface touch a little cleaner or water 1-2 hrs, if you can take out the print head unit. still not fixed for some case that should change the print head unit.

    you may try following if solutuon #1 tough to do

    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.

My Officejet 6000 E609n printer doesn't print the correct colors. The red is printing yellow and the blue and green are a lighter version of what is on the screen. I have cleaned the printer head


Hi,

This is not a cartridge issue. IT is Printhead issue. Since you have done the manual cleaning, it is now time to replace the Printhead.

Regards,
Suhail

Colors don't print correctly. such as green prints as red. what's messed up?


The color cartridge for this printer has three colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) within it. So if one runs out or is dried up if throws the color out of wack. Try running the head cleaning first but replacing the color cartridge should correct the problem.

To use the Color Correction Wizard, go to the printer's Color properties page, select User-defined color correction , then click Start Color Correction Wizard button. The Color Correction Wizard helps the user perform the following steps:
  1. Choose the sample picture to be used. This can be the document that's open in the current application, or one of several samples provided by Hewlett-Packard.
  2. Choose the type of correction to be applied to the picture. The brightness, the contrast, or the color balance can be varied.
  3. The Wizard prints the same picture ten times with different degrees of correction applied to it.
  4. Look at the printout and decide which of the ten is preferred.
A combination of corrections of different kinds can be used. For example, when selecting a brightness correction, the Wizard can be instructed to give another set of ten prints from which to select the contrast, or the color balance. When the final selection is made, the combination of corrections that have been chosen will be saved. This combination may be saved and used in future whenever selecting User-defined color correction .
