    I have this problem. Can't be fixed with maintenance program. Did you find a fix?

    I have the same problem where the printing is all too pink, I have discovered that the blue ink tank is not printing despite many deep cleans with print manager. I have tried manipulating the colours which didn't work and cleaning with a flush solution hasn't solved the problem either. It looks like a new print head unfortunately but as these are very pricey would appreciate any other ideas.

    For over a year I have had to live with the PINK CAST problem on my CANON PIXMA MP800 Printer. I have contacted the Canon Printer Customer Support group to no avail. I have tested two other printers (HP and EPSON) ... have printed out the same files ... NO PICK CAST. Reviewing the Online Canon Support ... I find out that I am not the only user of the CANON PIXMA MP800 Printer experiencing the PINK CAST problem.
    I am using the OEM print cartridges ... only authentic Canon equipment. .... I would appreciate directions to correct this condition. The Canon printer is an excellent piece of equipment ... I purchased for its ability to scan 33MM slides as well as all the other functions of the 3 in 1 printer class. Thank you. JP Finnigan, Monterey Bay, California

Why is this EPSON STYLUS C88+ "Dura Brite Ultra" printer printing the wrong colors?

You have a corrupt or incorrect printer driver. Completely remove all references to the current driver from the computer. Un installing is not enough as the registry references remain. Then install the driver(s) again.

Photos are too orange even with the paper supplied as sample and greens washed out, skin tones too orange generally speaking it appears over exposed.

Try performing a head clean. Unfortunately you don't indicate the make and model of printer so cannot advise any further.

Recently replaced the magenta cartridge and it was printing everything in pink tones (but the magenta still registers full). Just replaced light cyan cartridge and now its not printing full lines of text...

I'm not really sure, but if I were you, Id work with all the cartridges. Moisten a lintless soft paper or tissue and gently wipe printhead of each cartridge. Be sure you 'seat" them carefully and securely. I think one or more cartridges is empty OR dry. See if this helps a bit.

Possible printhead or driver issue.
Are you using Adobe photoshop? Please try to print also using a different application to isolate the issue.
Make sure that you are using correct epson cartridges.
Please print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing colors or missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver.
If the nozzle check pattern printed out successfully, please trash and re-install the drivers. The driver is available on
