Can't print in color on my Canon printer

If you go here you can download or view a manual for your printer, with detailed instructions on changing the print cartridge settings in windows or mac.
If you go here, you'll be taken to the home support page for your printer, where you can enter a search for "print in color", and detailed instructions will follow.
You go to control panel>printers>print preferences> and uncheck the grayscale printing and set the color to auto.
Issue: Image prints black and white instead of color....See below.
Solution: Uncheck Grayscale Printing checkbox (Windows)

Unchecking Grayscale Printing Follow the steps below to change the Grayscale Printing option:
  1. On the Windows desktop, click 'Start', point to 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes').

    For Windows Vista: Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
  2. Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'. Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties'.

  3. On the Main tab, click on the 'Grayscale Printing' check-box to remove the check-mark.

  4. Click the 'OK' button to save the setting.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Colors out of computer aren't the same out of printer

When you print a test page, do all 3 colors show up? If they don't your cartridge is out of one color, or the print head for that color is cloged. When you install the printer on Vista, if you are using a USB cable, bring Vista all the way up and then plug in the USB cable. Vista should then tell you it found a new device. If it does, the Vista probley has a driver built into Vista. If it askes you if you want to use the existing drivers, say no and chose the drivers from the Vista printers.

I had many problems with Vista fixed in this way.

1) Unistall drivers supplied with printer
2) Download new Vista drivers
3) Disconnect printer
4) Restart computer
5) Install new drivers (connect printer when it asks)
6) Restart computer

For me it now works.
