Question about Canon PIXMA MP520 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanning is not producing accurate colors for all colors. For example, Halloween shade of orange scans as pure yellow and brown comes out quite pink. Tried shutting the machine down and restarting much later, but this didn't help.

You'll need to calibrate your printer in order for the prints to come out with the correct color. In addition to this, if you're printing from .pdfs, you can set Acrobat to "print as image", this also helps in correcting the colors as they appear on your monitor, although this is NOT as accurate in correcting color as the "calibration" part.



Hope this helps. :)

    Thanks for trying. However, the problem is in scanning, rather than printing from the computer - (although the problem also occurs when I use the printer as a copier. I did try calibrating --- but that did not make a difference.

    The "scanner" can be calibrated as well as the printer. Check your manual for details about this.

    Hope this helps. :)

I need to know what the various colored wires connect to since I needed to remove the old amp and install an after market stereo.


Check the speakers connection and that should give you at least 8 of the colors. The ones left then are going to be ground and power and display power. You can figure those out with a meter.

Who decided that black should be the last color for belt grading in martial arts?


Each belt color signifies a level of skill and technique learned throughout training. If each belt color is combined together (yellow, orange, green, purple, blue, brown and red) they would eventually produce black - thus determining why black is the final color level.

I am an artist very fussy about color. On this Kodak, purple is brownish, blue is ugly greenish, khaki-ish, majenta is orangish, my green eyes are brown, my fair skin is orangish and brownish and greenish....


Hello,

Well as you probably already know the Canon printers do colors particularly well.

I am not experienced with the Kodak printers.

Before you give up a sugest you find out if there are any color profiles available for your printer.

You can try the Kodak webs site or check else where for them online. I would suggest the photographer forums.

(By the way Kodak is known for playing fast and lose with their color profiles so it may be that you will need one from somewhere other than Kodak.

Hope this helps.

Colors are not printing the acutal color


It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

Wiring on a RCA RJ-45 wall jack


the RJ45 wallplate is not meant for ethernet. It's an 8P8C connector for a phone. Will it work as a network jack? Maybe. I wouldn't use it, but if you really want to try, wire it thusly:

1 Blue --- Orange/White
2 Orange --- Orange
3 Black --- Green/White
4 Red --- Blue
5 Green --- Blue/White
6 Yellow --- Green
7 Brown --- Brown/White
8 White --- Brown

I'd still recommend a CAT5 wallplate with a CAT5 jack.

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade


Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.
