My Canon Pro9000 MarkII prints photos with a red tint


You probably haven't calibrated your monitor to show the correct colours, so in whatever photo programme you're using, you're setting the red tones too high. Test this by first not calibrating your monitor, but turning down all the red tone until it looks washed out. Print this and see if it's better. If so, set your monitor to a cooler colour temperature. If the result is no better, check your print dialogue settings to make sure you are using an appropriate colour profile. And, for example, if you're using Photoshop, tick 'let Photoshop manage colours' in the advanced profile settings box. Hope this helps. I doubt there's anything wrong with the printer.

Can't print photos with correct colours. Photos in .jpg format and I know colours on screen match colours when printed commercially. Printing from Zoom Browser or Canon Easy Photo gives much worse results...


First clean the print head and run the test print and then the alignment setup to make sure that the printer is clean and registers correctly. In the Printer Properties (Right click on the printer name via Control Panel - Printers) there is an option tab for Colour Management. Click this and select the source that you need to match the print output to. Also go through all the other tabs in Pinter - Properties as there are many setup options there to setup and tweak the colour balance and adding effects etc. This can be quite a lengthy process but well worth the effort. There is no shortcut to doing this but you will end up with a precisely calibrated custom printer setup that you can save and reuse at any time. I have these profiles defined for my printers for each media type and each ink supplier although I have minimised the number of profiles by now using 1 bulk ink supplier to get consistency between cartridge changes and CISS refills. Note that this may vary when you change print carts or change the media type and manufacturers.

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Canon ip90 prints everything reddish


First, check out the stickies. Also, read this article at Steve's Digicams.

Also, make sure your monitor is calibrated. Even using software calibration such as Adobe Gamma will help.

Colour errors


I would try changing photo papers to see if that improves or worsens the balance.
The absorbtion rate of papers differs greatly which can influence colo(u)r saturation.

Hi Carol, Are these print jobs being sent from a computer or the Xray machine itself or are you scanning them?
