In both cases be sure using correct ink. Use of generic ink can lead to leakage of catrridge seats do to crossion from inferrior ink quality (per Cannon). Be sure ink in proper locations - see manual. Run the maintenance proceedures: cleaning then print nozzle pattern. If all colors are not proper after two or three cleanings, perform deep cleaning. Print nozzle pattern after each cleaning. This should clear up problem. If not, print head may need replacement.

Canon mp830 printing pinkish instead of blue


Hi

You have stick residue in the print head. Just run the print nozzle for 2-3 times to get the correct color.

Also, be sure that all ink cartridges are full because if one of the color is empty, you cannot achieve the correct color when one ink color is missing.

Please let me know if you need more help

Won't print black


If it's a Canon cartridge, make sure you remove the tape over the vent hole on top, try a couple of deep cleaning cycles, otherwise you need a new printhead, qy6-0049-000 around $40.00

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors


Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

Canon Customer support re this I can't see how this can be happening. It is possible the waste ink tank is full and bleeding all over. Check out www.fixyourownprinter.com
