Question about Canon PIXMA iP90 Mobile Printer

1 Answer

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors

Pictures I've scanned, that look fine on screen, are printing with different colors. For instance, a blue background prints purple. And faces look pinkish. Both color and black ink cartridges are full. I ran both the "cleaning" and "deep cleaning" for the nozzles.

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

Colour photos will print fine on plain paper but when you select 6x4 and HP premium paper the output is very odd, for instance the black penguins in Windows sample folder come out with turquise blue backs....

It is not at all unusual for colors to appear different when printing on differing paper types. Your problem would appear to be an over saturation effect which alters the purity of the color tones. I'd suggest that you refer to information found under the heading "Change the saturation, brightness, or color tone" found on page 58 of the online user manual for your printer which is found at the following link:

My HP C6150 prints pictures fine but the text is incomplete. I have tried different ink cartridges and have cleaned print head and done a cartridge alignment. What else is there?

1. During the cleaning of the print heads you probably clog some of the jets that distribute the ink.
If you didn't use the proper cleaning procedure you may have damaged the print heads.
the color heads are probably not affected therefore the pictures prints come out clear.

Every program prints the colors on my photos different than how they look on the screen. What setting will calibrate all to be the same? I have a Samsung 23in widescreen lcd monitor, and use Lightroom,...

That happens because the screen color resolution is better than the printer color resolution. You can set your color scheme down to 16 colors. Right click on the screen and select the appearance tab to change the color resolution

Color cartridge should be just fine. You may want to change the printing to "best" for the pictures.
You can purchase Photo ink, but it doesn't make that much of a difference and you can't switch back and forth because the ink points on the toners will dry up and be able to be used.
Let me know if this helps.
