    I have the same problem. Prior to the problem, the print monitor was telling me that both cyan and magenta were running low so I replaced them. I inadvertently put in a photmagenta cartridge, not simple magenta and now, even with the correct cartridge and all the other cartridges replaced, the problem remains. I just took denatured alchohol and gently brushed the inkpads but no change.

My printer prints out colours different to monitor - i.e., brown prints out as mauve, green as aqua, and yellow as pink. I have replaced all cartridges (and removed all coverings) with genuine Canon...

Sounds like the wrong colours were installed temporarily. It may never clear properly.
Try printing complete pages of one colour until the correct colour arrives.

My Xerox 8400 is printing the wrong colors. Where it's red, it's printing a brown shade and where it should be grey, it's printing green. My logo is grey and red and it's printing all grey, but not the...

Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).

If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

Colors are off. Browns print green or purple. I

BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

Cant match the coloured wires correctly from a sony cd player

RF+ light green
RF- dark green
LR+ brown
LR- yellow
RR+ dark blue
RR- yellow/green
The +12v constant, +12v switched, and ground connections you should be able to get just using a multimeter (which I would highly recommend you do anyways, just for safety's sake).

The black is printing dark redish brown

Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.
