Ink color problem

Hi,
I am trying to print a bright red color. Instead it comes out more of a magenta or purplish color. I have put all new ink cartridges in. I have removed the blue ink.
Can you help?

    I am printing as I normally do. I need the specific bright red color as it relates to a logo. Removing the blue ink was a long shot. Surprisingly, it still printed

    My Pixma is printing purple instead of black, I removed the print head and cleaned it, worked for a short time, can I purchase just the print head that the colors nest in? If so Where and how much?

    Any other solutions?

Why won't a new tri-color cartridge print red?


Tri color cartridge contains Cyan,Magenta & Yellow color inks, mono cartridge contain black ink, combination/mixing with these inks desired color out put will prints on paper.. If any one or more inks are missing/dried, result mis matched print outs on paper.
In your case I feel it's Magenta ink is not firing..,nozzles may clogged, try to clean the nozzles with solvents & try it...If no result ,. replace the color cartridge..

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)


magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

Colour problem


If the printer gives magenta instead of red you have a problem with one of the other colors. Magenta needs other colors to print red. Print a cofiguration print and check witch color is bad or missing. Replace the cartrridge of the missing/bad color

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Serious Color Printer Issues


This is to do with the way in which the cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink is mixed to produce all the colours e.g. to print "red" requires both magenta and yellow ink. Thus, if the magenta ink is not flowing for some reason, for example, the "red" will print out as yellow. So, make sure all your cartridges and nozzles are working properly.

If you need further help with this, please post a new comment to this effect.

Prints only green predominently


Without knowing what printer you have or what things you have tried I can only guess here. It sounds like you need a new cartridge. A color ink cartridge will have 3 colors of ink for most printers...cyan (blue), magenta (purplish-maroon), and yellow. Depending on what you print it is very possible that you could run out of one of the inks before the others. Printing green can be an indication that you are out of magenta ink. The cyan and yellow inks will combine and look green.

You can remove the cartridge and run a tissue over the printhead and see if you see all 3 colors as a quick test. If you only see cyan and yellow, then the magenta is probably empty or dried up. If you see all 3 colors I would reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. It is possible that the magenta was just clogged and you cleaned it with the tissue. If it still doesn't print all colors your best bet is probably to just get a new ink cartridge.

Printing color copies


check to see which cartridge you put in, photo magenta cartridges DO NOT work in the MP830. sounds silly but we see it all the time.

check to see if the short vertical black bar next to the magenta pattern looks ok, not brown or gray or streaky. if it is you may need a professional head flush, take the whole printer in for service.
