Hello

i assume you replaced the color cartridge ? if not do so, but before doing that take a dry non cotton rag and clean the print head first by wiping off excess ink.

also, go to these sites to get the instruction on how to properly maintain your printer for continued use, and what to do if a print issue arises.

You know for sure that the VISTA driver is the correct and most updated on for your printer and version of VISTA, 32 or 64?

SOURCE: picture prints have no yellow, purple tint

I've solved this with multiple head cleaning. I cleaned the print heads 7 or 8 times and it's working ok again now.

To clean your print heads do the following:

  1. On your computer, start the KODAK AiO Home Center.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.
hope this helps

make sure you have enough HDD space, and RAM.
It's usually a spooler issue relating to contiguous disk space available for spooling the file. It could also be the result of old files left in the spooler folder.

If the laptop has only ONE hd partition, what may well be happening is that while the software's scratch file is large, you don't have enough contiguous free space left to spool the output completely. That could cause the problem you describe as well..

You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

The color prints sheet is coloring light purple instead of grey. I check the black ink but is still half full.


grey is often made up of all the colours, so if the greys are purple it would be the Yellow missing or not printing completely. Try a printer head clean.

When I print the picture has a purple haze in it ?


If you are using re-manufactured ink tanks, that would explain it, a mi-matched ink tank. To clarify the ink colour is not quite right.

If genuine ink tanks (Recommended) then maybe try different paper. If using photo paper you should be using compatible / genuine paper as the different chemicals react can give this problem.

If using fax / standard paper then could be print head fault....normally get an error code.

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards
