I have personally encountered similar problem in my work.

Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nozzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal.

If serious do this. I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning that colour to print rightly. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nozzle. Clean off the ink with folded tissue; always dab not wipe. (At the nozzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nozzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.

If this doesn't do it, it most certainly your operating system that is the issue. It is system issue; you will need to perform a system restore on your operating system. Go to start/all programs/accessories/accessibility/system tools/system restore. When the dialogue box pops up simply follow the instructions. Make sure to select a date when you are sure the system printed perfectly. The system will restart and restore your operating system to that date. Then try to print again. This procedure does not affect personal files/data. But it only affects recently installed applications which can reinstall after.



Good luck & God bless!

I get a magenta strip (horizontal on A4/letter paper) across the paper. Any ideas?


If the stripe is only Magenta in color then I would highly suspect the Magenta Drum Unit to be the cause. All 4 color drums in these machines are interchangable so you COULD take the Magenta drum out and swap it with the Cyan or other color to see if the color of the stripe changes from Magenta to Cyan. These drums are pretty cheap at around $50.00 so if it were me I would just order one and replace it. If you want to try the swap then just open the front door and look for the grey color plastic bar that runs from upper left down to the lower right. Flip the green handle over that is close to the upper left end. Then loosen the 2 screws at either end of the grey bar. Lift up the bar and then you will see the Drum and Developer Units. The Drum units have the little green tab on the upper right side of the unit. The Developer Units have the green loop "handle" on them. Locate and remove the Magenta drum (just look for the magenta colored Developer Unit and the Magenta Drum is just above it) and whatever color drum you want to swap it with and switch the 2 around. Close the grey bar and secure the 2 screws, close the green handle and the front door and test.
The testing is not really necessary tho as the problem I am sure is the drum unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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.

Epson c88 how print in magenta


Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.

Can't color balance 2605


well, the density is actually a combination of two aspects. The original document settings, especially in color transforms. Usually, the software will have a transform specific for the printer. In my experiences, trying to tweak the printer for each print job, can cause extreme frustration. Check the software manual for settings for your printer, and perhaps you'll get closer to this solution.

Got backup?

Color Problems


I know this contribution might be late, but try to avoid using the auto white balance. Use a tungsten mode and test each of its compensations until you get the desired result. I haven't had a similar problem on the 14n, but my D100 always places a magenta cast on white when shooting auto WB. I learned how to adapt the other WB modes to any situation.
