I guess it depends on if your using mac or PC... if your using mac It could also be that your monitor has not been calibrated recently.. that is another thing you might want to try.. Also if you try and clean the head and can't get it to work still you can always buy a new head.  this is the advantage of the canons FINE printhead technology.  You have a separate manufactured print head

Looks like your print head is clogged,you will have to clean it with head cleaning fluid.You can buy this solution either over the internet or in one of the good pc stores.good luck Ron

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.

Canon pixma ip3600 blue colour cast

I don't get true B&W but only 1/2 a Gnats knacker off it, if you send for a test print from say Ilford you'll notice that it's not B&W but a warm tone very slightly sepia.
I use cheapo inks bought on eBay so none of the settings in software are of any use. I disable any attempt by the software to influence the printer and do the same in the printer settings window. I then alter the colours using the sliders in the Manual section of the colour/intensity to the colour that I see on my screen and save the setting in the profiles section.
I use the iP3600 and have found it very good indeed, after lots of experiments I've settled on a sepia tone reminiscent of Sodium Sulphide but without the nasty smell.

My new canon mg5200 printer prints washed out colours compared to what is on the page i am printing from. I have changed the print resolution to high and that has helped a small amount. Can you please tell...

I think you will have to use the printer's "color management" to adjust the output to match what you see on the monitor screen. Go to Canon's website, it explains everything you need to alter the colour profile for your printer.

The color gray prints green instead

Either someone has been playing with colour controls or your clour cartridges are either blocked or running low. If the printer can print black using the color cartridges then they are all ok. But it does sound like tank is running dry or blocked. If they have had a lot of use I'd say the ink is low. If they are new cartridges but not been used for a while they could be dried out and blocked.

MP600 printing in blue not colour

Just replace the cartridges AGAIN with new ones and pressed STOP/RESET. Who would have thought I'd have 3 cartridges that were faulty.

Refill cartridges

This is normal.
Printer will warn the ink is getting low. almost empty very nearly empty....

then (in effect) it says if you want to use refilled cartridges you can but it may void printer warranty. Press yellow flashing button for 5 seconds to "release ink detection" (summat like that).

Printer will continue to print but shows the cartridge as empty. Its your responsibility to make sure you do not run out.

It does this separately for each colour - tedious for the pro9000 with 8 colours
