Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pink tinge to colored photos

I have a canon mp6OO printer.  I was printing a large batch of photos and the pictures turned out fine.  I ran out of magenta and black ink and replaced the cartridge.  Now all of my pictures have a pink tinge- all 8, 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheets.  Help!  I can't afford to waste any more photo paper or ink.  The project is due this weekend.
Thank you!

Canon has a number of things you can check in their knowledgebase. Go here. Type "pink tint" in the search box and click Search. If you select the first item "tinted printing" you will get at least 21 things you can try (only 10 show up per screen).

Photos are pink - photos all have a pink tinge to them when i print


You need to go to the cannon print folder (Start > All Programs ? Cannon > ) and run the printers diagnostice/ utilities program.

This sounds like you need to either clean the heads (utilities pgm) and or replace carrtridges.

Lately pictures are all coming out tinged purple or pink. I have been getting a message saying that the colour scheme is returning to vista basic when I open up the photo program. Any ideas? ThanksJon


Make sure that you don't have photo cyan or photo magenta where the plain colors should be, or vice versa, The color scheme is set in printer properties and some viruses can fool with your settings, make sure you run a virus check.

When printing pictures, they are discolored


You are running low on your color ink cartridge. It cannot mix the primary colors right anymore and the color images start getting a pink-purple tinge to them. Get a new set of cartidges and install them and this should fix the problem fine. Hope this helps.

Browns printing pink suggest the blue/yellow jets are clogged or not functioning. If the uses head in cartridge type[that is with a sheet of contacts on the front of the cartridge- then take then out ,damp a tissue in some warm water an place on a plate or similar - then stand the cartriges in the damp tissue until the tissue turns colour - then replace the cartrdge.
