How old is the paper, it should have an expiration date on the package.  If the paper is good, it could be that your yellow color in the ink cartridge is low.  Run a printer test page and see if all colors work.

I am not getting good color on my print out


Are you trying to print photographs on plain paper? Epson WorkForce printers are designed for fast office-type printing, not photo quality printing.
If you use photo-paper (specifically, Epson photo paper), and "best" quality setting, it should be better. Your color may not exactly match what you see on your screen, though. Welcome to the wonderful world of "color management".

Why won't my printer print purple?


Your Cannon printer is not the problem. You will get different print color depending on the paper you are using, For example you will get different print result if you print on color paper than on white paper and a different print if you print on photo paper. Another alternative is to lighten the tone of your purple. I don't know what your objective is and what project you're working on but I hope this might help.

Hi there I have the original canon cartridges in the printer and they all have lots of ink in them, but suddenly when printing the 'black' parts of a photograph looks purple. But when I print text in...


When you are printing a photograph, the back is resultant of combination of RGB but when you print a latter of document it usages only the black ink. So since the black is properly printed when it's combining RGB that means any of the color is low on ink. Replacing the color cartridge will solve the problem for you.

When I print the picture has a purple haze in it ?


If you are using re-manufactured ink tanks, that would explain it, a mi-matched ink tank. To clarify the ink colour is not quite right.

If genuine ink tanks (Recommended) then maybe try different paper. If using photo paper you should be using compatible / genuine paper as the different chemicals react can give this problem.

If using fax / standard paper then could be print head fault....normally get an error code.
