Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer
Canon PIXMA MX850
The printer is recently printing Excel sheets light purple shading instead of grey shading. It also prints pink instead of grey in Access. It just started doing this THIS week. Any one else with this problem or a fix?
I think your Black Cartridge is Empty. Check it and replace it with the new one.
Your Printer is trying to produce Black Colour from your Colour Cartridge with a mix of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow.

The solutions made by others are quite valid. Also, do check and see if the colour on your screen matches the colour in your prints. There should be a way to align the colours pretty closely... check your instruction manual. Also, select or install the ICC colour profile for your printer as it most closely resembles screen colour and was designed to function in most circumstances better than other colour profiles. Bear in mind that Adobe also has its own set of colour printing profiles called "AdobeRGB" primarily used for its Photoshop series of products. Another point, install the proper monitor drivers for your monitor too, do not rely on Plug 'n Play to install the ICC profile for your monitor. (The ICC colour profile looks like a triangle in the colour profile selection set-up for your printer or monitor.) Graphics card or imbedded chip drivers can also affect colour rendering too. Go to the manufacturer's website to download and install the proper drivers for your operating system. This is best way to ensure you'll get a better colour match between your monitor and your printer. For Intel imbedded graphics chips only, go to the Intel site and install their Chip Identification Utility first and then use their search engine to locate any updated drivers for your computer's Intel hardware in your operating system. SiS, VIA, and ASUStek offer good ID utility software on their sites too for their motherboards with imbedded graphics chips. For OEM NVIDIA and RADEON graphics, visit their sites. For third-party graphics cards with others graphics chips (NVIDIA or AMD RADEON) installed... visit their sites for updated drivers. I hope this helps.
