Re: Redish tone

This is because your printer heads needs to be cleaned or replaced! or either some particular colour is empty!

Prints are coming out very redish and magenta

youll have to do the head cleaning more, try it a few more times to see if it improves. it can take a while sometimes and it does use ink while it does it

Ink not printing the same image quality that is on computer

Issue When printing directly from a memory card, the printouts have an abnormally high red tone.
NOTE: This does not affect the prints that were originally sent from the computer. Solution Press the Photo Fix button to turn off the Photo Fix feature before printing from a memory card. Cause The Photo Fix feature was originally designed to reduce/enhance printed pictures by making colors more vibrant. However, it can also have a side-effect to make some prints have more red tone than desired. In the HP Photosmart D7100 series printer, this feature is “ON” by default.

Ink tone

Hi Pam -

This is a common problem with the CX 5000 - there is no contrast control (i.e., light/dark) like you would have on a photocopier. But if you use the scanning mode (EpsonScan) instead of the copying mode, there are a couple of alternative options that might help:

1) Brightness - in the EpsonScan program, in Home Mode, under Image Adjustments, there is a button labelled "Brightness." Depending on the colors and contrast of what you're copying, adjusting the brightness may help.

2) Color Restoration - In both Home Mode and Professional Mode, this feature is meant to restore the color to a faded photo - depending on the colors of your document, it may make the copy lighter or darker, but it's an option.

Hope this helps!

Incorrect color of photos

I found out that Windows Vista (this is what came with my HP laptop) is not compatible with my printer. So, I went to the Canon website and downloaded a driver, and my photos are very clear and of normal color:)
Thanks for checking and your response time was pretty quick.
