This could one of a few fairly major problems. The easiest way to track down the fault is start by replacing the consumables - make sure you install them in the correct positions - it is possible on the C1100 to put them in the wrong places!! Change the toners first. Most importantly the magenta and yellow. Print several pages. Use MS Paint or similar to create a page with all four component colours on (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)in large blocks (see image below) and print them full page. Now look at the print and see if any one colour is missing or has reduced density. If you have a spare PCU you should but that in next. Let me know what the print outs look like and we will progress to the next step.

    How did the colour blocks look when printed. If you have done the usual checks then it sounds like you need a DEV unit replaced or the main board has gone.

    If the machine is in warranty, get Epson out to it. If not then I'm affraid the cheapest option is to bin it and get a replacement printer. A main board or dev unit fitted onsite by an Epson engineer will likely cost more than two thirds the price of a new printer. You could try to get a dev unit from a supplier in your locality and fit it yourself. This would save a bundle

    You would need a service manual and about 45 minutes time plus 15 minutes to clean your hands after!

    Let me know if you want more instructions

How can I get my printer to print in color rather than brown? more info

Hi Harold
I have a feeling that this is a problem that you will only be able to resolve by changing the colour cartridge for a new one and then doing multiple head cleaning operations.
It sounds as if the three tanks in the colour cartridge have become severely contaminated with ink from the others, thus giving this overall brown colour on the page, whichever colour the computer tells the printer to print.
To check this you may be able to use something like a Word document and using the font properties, change the colour of the font on the screen for a number of different lines (eg one line - bright yellow, another - bright red, a third - bright blue, a fourth - black) print this out and see what colours you get.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

My Canon Pro9000 MarkII prints photos with a red tint

You probably haven't calibrated your monitor to show the correct colours, so in whatever photo programme you're using, you're setting the red tones too high. Test this by first not calibrating your monitor, but turning down all the red tone until it looks washed out. Print this and see if it's better. If so, set your monitor to a cooler colour temperature. If the result is no better, check your print dialogue settings to make sure you are using an appropriate colour profile. And, for example, if you're using Photoshop, tick 'let Photoshop manage colours' in the advanced profile settings box. Hope this helps. I doubt there's anything wrong with the printer.

Too much red

I'm assuming that the colour cartridge is a three in one. Blue, Yellow and Magenta.

When printing a colour document, the printer automatically balances colour mixtures from the three primary colours listed above. Should a print out be too red, its probably because its run out of yellow and/blue.

The best way to check is to print out a test page, you should get a block for each of the colours and black. If one's missing, there's your answer.

Wont print photos the right colour

There should be something like a printer properties menu. Find it and adjust the colour controls to manual and reduce the magenta settings etc. Also make certain you have the right type of paper selected on your printer, to the one you are using.
