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

Printing oranges instead of browns

Sometimes the colors are off because certain (other) colored ink toner cartridge is low. See if you get the same results after you use new toner cartridges.

Colors are off. Browns print green or purple. I

BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

It seems to be a problem with the colour ink cartridge ,did you remove the protective tape that came with it?
you should return the colour cartridge and get it replaced or buy another one.
If that doesn't solve it then return the printer since it's under warranty.

Not printing out true colors

My guess is you either have the wrong cartridges or your cartridges need replacing.

The black is printing dark redish brown

Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

Colours are not true, grey is brown

You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.
