Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

My Canon MP210 never prints photos correctly! The colors come out like the right color but very incorrectly. Basically, the photos all have very severe color management problems. APparently the printer has trouble printing any bright colors. I cant even print bright red letters. I've tried 3 new cartridges and cleaned the printer heads and all that with auto maintenance. PLEASE HELP MEEE

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.

    ooops i missed an important bit. If you experiment with hue and saturation sliders in youre photo view program (photoshop) then you must first save your experiment under a new name to preserver the original, then reopen the changed pic and then print. Otherwise the printer will just reprint the original and as yet unchanged and saved version that will not be what you have on the screen.

CANON MP210 NOT PRINTING BLACK DESPITE NEW CARTRIDGE. ONLY PRINTING COLOUR WHY?


Did you take off the tape on the nozzle when installing the color cartridge? If you didn't do that, take it off, if you did, just run a couple black and white test pages to get the ink flowing.

My printer was printing correctly earlier in the day. I have just replaced two of the ink tanks - the others all have sufficient ink in them. I now have washed out, incorrect colours.


Make sure you didn't put photo magenta or photo cyan where the regular magenta and cyan go, the photo colors are not dark enough, and don't make the proper colors when you print.

I have a new canon mp210 printer ink is low i bought new ink to replace old their is no ink cartridges in printer. When i look at the pictures to load new ink and put it in alarm light is flashing


Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.
