First you need to check that the printer has the same problem with a new cartridge, otherwise may be a cartridge problem. After this try doing a nozzle cleanup. You will find the option on printer properties in control panel, or opening canon software from start menu. If after this you still have the problem then you should open the printer and clean the waste ink well and printer head.

Canon pro 9000 printing not printing vibrant colors


I've had 5 Pro9000 & Pro9000 II's so far. Mechanically sound and fairly heavy duty. Mostly by default they print muddy or muted, with unsatisfactory reds and yellows. The default settings usually suck. I have had to develop my own driver settings and save them to printer profiles for individual situations. There is a lot of control in the driver settings and I recommend making your own color charts for reference, displaying the settings on each page. I also recommend regular nozzle checks and calibration. Avoid cleaning via the driver utility as this wastes a lot of ink, which is all deposited on the bottom of your printer and eventually has to be dealt with. Instead, remove and soak the head. Completely dry before reinstalling.

MY CANNON PRINTER IP3600 IS PRINTING RED IMAGES IN PINK


go to Edit > Color Settings, how is Photoshop Elements currently set? The first thing I would do is try setting it to "No color management" and see if you get better results. If this works for you, you're in luck, because color management gets tricky.In settings "No color management" does not produce acceptable results, you will have to start reading up on color management and color calibrating your devices, particularly your printer. You might want to also read Photoshop Elements Help topic "To print using color management."Most graphics software has setting for color management, but personally, I have always gotten the best results by simply turning color management off. Color management is primarily intended for people in a pre-press environment. Not everyone needs it. If you're not doing professional printing, first try working without color management before you assume you need it.

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

My xerox phaser 8560 is printing muted color


First off on your screen access troubleshooting, and perform the remove light strips and also remove smears and skips.
Next go to Xerox.com, under support and drivers enter 8560 in the search box. then go to the support page.
You want to look up the procedures for TEC color correction. And follow those steps.
If you are using a generic ink then, all bets are off in getting true color reproduction.

Photo prints bad color


This is the way it was designed. Kodak uses pigment-based inks for these printers, and the colors simply are not as vibrant as dye-based inks. Kodak tech support told me this directly, and that's the way it goes. You might do better if you experiment with different papers, but if you just want it to print quality color documents like a good old HP, you are out of luck.

By the way, there were many horrifying design decisions made on these 5000 series printers. One of the worst is that if you are out of ink, the scanner doesn't work. Nothing works. You can't even turn it off. All by design according to Kodak... Ridiculous!

Their software is also extremely poor and slow. I tried removing it through add/remove programs on one machine, and it wouldn't remove, it would just go through the installation procedure.

I've kept my 5500, but it sucks. I'd love to throw it away and buy a real printer, but I am too cheap.

Good luck.

Printer will only give me black & white documents, I need color


If you can copy in color without problem, then you have to check the print settings. On your print screen click on [Properties], then [Graphics]. Verify that color, and not grayscale is checked. Make sure to click on [Apply] before closing the window. Write me if that does not solve the issue.
