This is a problem with the actual nozzles / print head on the printer. If you can get in there you can take a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and wipe clean the nozzles of the printer head. Try this, but chances are it's actually the print head that is failing. This is common once they get a few years old, the IP series of canon's printers are notorious for this. If you happened to buy it on a major credit card (not debit card) you can call the card company and ask if they do automatic electronics warranties (American Express for example does 5 years on all electronics on all cards) and you can actually file a claim with them and get a full refund on the printer. Otherwise it may just be time to replace it if cleaning the nozzles doesn't straighten it out.
Thanks Tim

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

I have all the correct color cartridges on my MP530 color printer. All of the sudden it coated a blue tint to my color printings. My print out look blue. Any suggestions I can correct the printer to print...


Just make sure the right colors are in the right place, photo magenta is not interchangeable regular magenta. Also run the nozzle check to make sure all colors print, if after 2 deep clean cycles you don't have all colors you may need a new printhead.

Color photos printing very faded


Some nozzles could be burned out on the printhead, and you need to make sure you have no photo inks installed where regular inks should be. Photo magenta prints much lighter than regular magenta.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Canon pixma ip6600d omitting black ink


Many printers use color to make black, you may have to FORCE it to use the black ink cartridge for black or turn off something that is telling the printer to use the color cartridges for the black.

That's my educated guess anyway...

I do know that some printers do this, so I'm assuming this is what is giving you trouble. I don't know why it would print any different on a memory card than from the computer though...
