Doe sthe nozzle check show ANY gaps? If not the n the colour difference is most likely down to the colour profile on your system in the software you use.

See if the software or printer vendor offer a colour profile for your OS.

Brown background instead of white


You are probably out of ink in one or more cartridges. You need to do a diagnostic print and take the print to the ink supply vendor to get the correct replacements.

Have you tried printing text in different colour if that works the black jets are blocked- try running the cleaning cycle to clear (it may not use black ink in graphics)

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Colors are off. Browns print green or purple. I


BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

Printing wrong colors


you might be running out of the red ink.

Whenever a printer prints the whole image but with different colors it means that the printer uses the available color with enough amount.

Try replacing it with new ink cartridge.

How to print text using red or blue ink


I would just set the text color to red or blue in your document.

Depending on the program that you use it could have different steps.

Here is steps in Word:

You can change the Colour of your text by highlighting the text and then clicking on the 'A' symbol on the toolbar. This will change your text to the Colour which is underneath the symbol 'A' on the toolbar. To change the Colour, click on the arrow next to the symbol and select one of the colours from the small box which appears. This will change the Colour of your text as soon as you click on the Colour.

Another way of changing the Colour of your text is to go to 'Format' and then click on 'Font'. The font window should appear. Select a Colour from the 'Colour' section. You can see a preview of what the text will look like in the box below. You can also add various effects to your text by using the options in the 'Effects' section. This will also allow you to see a preview in the box at the bottom of the window.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.
