Problem with the color - Canon Pixma ip 3000 Ink Jet printer

The color isn't right on the photos I print, they all come out with some kind of yellow tinge.
The ink is new and the cartridges are full.

    printing in very light color which doesn't look real color, when a first print is taken in the day it prints in light red(close to orange) color, after performing cleaning from the maintenance menu, it prints the right color but it is too light color, it was not like this for last one year, we don't use the color printing that often also. please suggest.

    Not getting the correct red tint when printing. Cleaned print head, replaced ink with brand name multiple times, reloaded and updated drivers, reset eeprom, tried different color profiles still no luck. Like the individual colors but that doesn't help me if I can't use them.

    when I changed to a generic ink in December 07 all photo prints were green. After doing all the maintenance tests prints were yellow or orange. After thoroughly washing the print head printer one good photo then back to green. yellow, etc. repeated washing produced the same results. Prints just great text in black or black and white pictures but not color.

    Same problem - everything in colour is now noticeably and unacceptably green-tinged. This problem emerged when using Canon's own ink cartridges. Posted solution not helpful (I check my settings and whether or not the power is on, etc.). But thanks for listening.

Canon mg5200 only prints photos

I have an MP540 and it says..."The PIXMA MP540 runs on five ink cartridges, with a photo black as well as a pigmented black for text printing" so it sounds like pigmented is for text and dye for pics. So maybe your default settings are showing high quality, photo or the paper type is causing the printer to select high quality...just a thought!

Cleaning ink cartridges takes up a lot of ink. So, you may be out of ink in the respective ink jet cartridges that supply ink for the colors which are missing. Try new ink cartridges.

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

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale

Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

I think that if you use the bottom tray to load the paper, you can use the different sizes of paper to print. Make sure to click the second button inside the lid that shows the direction the paper is fed into the printer. hope this helps!
