Question about Digital Cameras

Open Question

My Canon Pixma ip6000d printer is printing my pictures with a red hue.

My Cannon IP6000d printer is printing all pics with a red wash to them. I deep cleaned, nozzle checked and everything my printer would do. I even took out ink cartridges and let them sit on a warm wet paper towel to make sure ink was not clogged or whatever. My pics are still coming out red. Please help.

the redish hue usually mean that the camera doesn't have enough light to take a good quality pic. If daytime pictures taken outside still look the same take it back or get a new camera.

If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

The lens assembly needs a repair service.

Either it as internal damaged parts, or a moving part got stuck.

This mean a professional repair service for it.

The cost of it may be $120.00 or more in most camera repair centers.

Best regards,

See this link regarding the strange colors and horizontal lines on your LCD. A bad image sensor (CCD) can cause the issues you describe.

Hello Sophia, Did you try a different ink cartridge ? If you did than it sounds like a print head or nozzle problem.

Printer head for my cannon MG5220 wihich was purchased through amazon in December is not working

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

I have a CanonPower Shot A1100IS and my pictures when printed are coming out with a red tint. My Christmas pics were terrible. I'm not sure why. Canyou help me?

If the pics look fine on your camera and computer screens, then the problem is with the printer. If they have the red tint on the screens, then you may have the white balance set to something other than "auto".

Outdoor pics completely washed out Cannon S5 IS Power shot

Try going into the review menu, choose setup and then choose 'reset all' This should re-set all shooting settings to automatic and solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick, your sensor is probably damaged - not good news - sorry

Make sure the pictures appear in the Windows Photo Gallery. Select the pictures and choose print on the top menu area. You can select contact sheet which will fit 35 pictures. Or if you just want the 30 pics, copy and paste into say Microsoft word and adjust size to fit on one page.

Memory Card Error

You could take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (Walmart, etc.). From there, you can print your pics or even make a cd of them. The card may be faulty or just may not work in Canon cameras.

Color off seems amber

Double check the wb settings in camera, (and be sure to check WB Shift) I'd suggest adding a Blue shift to your images to compensate for the Amber until you find something thats a decent trade off, if you can't eliminate the amber shift.
