Canon MP730 - All pictures are too blue

I have a canon MP730. When printing colour pictures they all come out really blue!!

  • foster_rob May 01, 2010

    I did a head cleaning and a head refreshing.

    the nossle check looks fine, I think, the boxes under L & M are blue are they suppose to be?

    But when i print a picture it is still really blue,

    the browns come out purple,

    green comes out blue!!

  • foster_rob May 01, 2010

    Still no good.

    After studing some prints i have worked out that they contain very little or no yellow.

    So i tried to print a yellow picture,

    it came out a very very pale pink!

    Looking back at the nossle check the yellow is really really faint.

    It gets fainter from left to right and some horisontal lines are missing.

    None of the boxes marked A to M are Yellow.

    How do you interpret the boxes and numbers next to them anyway?

Hello,Check the Following If the printed Pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.

  1. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

  2. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

  3. Press the <Set> button.

  4. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  5. Press <Set>.

  6. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head.
  1. Make sure the device is powered on.

  2. Press the <Open> button (1) and lift up the scanning unit. The print head holder automatically moves to the center of the machine.Canon MP730 - All pictures are too blue - 0c4caf3.jpg
  3. Press on the tab to release the empty ink tank, then remove it from its slot.
  4. On the new ink tank, pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow and remove the plastic wrapper so you can see the air hole.0974e70.jpg
  5. Turn the ink tank over so that the protective cap is facing up. Then hold the ink tank and remove the protective cap.
  6. Insert the ink tank into the empty slot on the print head. Press down gently on the ink tank until an audible click is heard.
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 to replace another empty ink tank.
  8. Close the scanning unit until it locks into place.
  9. If additional ink tanks need to be replaced, replace them before starting a new print job.

Canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK

Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

Have you tried doing some maintenance like nozzle check,printing head alignment,clean the nozzles if not then try it by going into control panel - printers and faxes - where you see your mp730 right click and go to properties then click on the last tab which would be maintenance.Try those options if none worked then u might have to replace you print head and that should work

Canon MP730 stops printing midstream

Is the issue the same with a anormal text document or just with heavily colored docs? If the text doc gets printed fine, then it is an issue with print spooler and we might need to work on that. revert & lemme know
