Hi there,

You must do a deep printer head cleaning on your unit, it could be clogged and dirty and that because it will not produce or print out a proper color.

Let me know here again.

Its really not a problem as much as it is a question. I would like to know if I can switch the text color from black to another color to print documents? I am low on black and it is not printing clearly...


Try changing the font color on you word processor software (Microsoft Word) from black to say red ! Select 'all the text', change the color and print it. Should work.

Epson c88 how print in magenta


Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

HP z2100 horizontal lines where the text or object are


Check for updated firmware and drivers. Also, if all your object and text or black try changing them to color and see if that helps, maybe there is something wrong with your black printhead, the black may not be used when printing photos, the printer may be using process black for photoes and real black for black text and objects.
