Re: printer

Does it work ok in print mode (documents off the computer) or is it doing the same thing? may need to clean the printhead, the nozzles can get clogged try doing the head cleaning (I'd avoid deep cleaning unless nothing else works as it uses too much ink) if that doesn't work, you can remove the printhead, take the ink out and clean the inside and bottom of the print head using cotton swabs and rubbing alchol. May take many cleanings to get the blockages cleared. If none of the above works and you know you have ink, you may need a new print head, you can order online thru canon's website. Good luck!

Re: printer

Your black, yellow, and blue ink cartridges are empty, go to your local ink cartridge store or Staples, or Bestbuy. The only ink left in the printer is the red.

Pinkish tint in photo color copies ....... Is there a way to adjust the color ?

The "secondary" colours are produced by mixing the "primary" colours. One of the "primary" colours inside your inkjet cartridge is out of ink, and the resulting "actual" mix is not the "theoretical" mix.

Refill or replace the ink-cartridge.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.

Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Ink Color Issues

Did you change any of the configurations on your printer. Most photo printers have color settings that are media dependent. It sounds like you might have it set to print on regular paper but not on photo paper. There are a lot of settings that you can accidentally change on a printer so I would suggest uninstalling the printer then reinstalling it and see if that is the issue.

Photo printing

Try printing a manual self-test page:

1. Press and hold Cancel on the control panel.
2. While holding Cancel, press Start Copy Color.

This report provides useful information about your print cartridges, including status information. If the self-test report shows a problem, clean the print cartridges.
