Assuming it is not a problem with ink or toner feed, the normal printer does not determine internally the colors but only follows instructions from the application (program) you are using.

If a test page from the printer shows the correct color or color balance, then you will have to do the color correction from the program that is controlling the printer.

Carefully read of the application's features and the variables possible from within the program itself.


BTW, the paper stock you are using and its absorption characteristics can also influence color saturation too.


Also, it is helpful if you include brand name and model number of the device for which you are requesting help.

On page 77 of the manual is the WB settings.

To start (quick check if nothing is wrong with the camera) put it in automatic mode. Put the mode dial in Auto or SR Auto.
No other option. Then shoot some pictures. these should have a normal colour.

Why are my pictures too purple


Because printers use 4 color of inks: Cyan (blue) - Magenta (red) - Yellow and black (CMYK). If the picture is purple (which is just blue+red) then you probably need to replace the empty yellow. Check the black while you're at it since that is the one that gets used a lot. Always have spare cartridges handy for back up.

I want to print in white ink on black paper. I have a Canon MX310 printer


Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.

Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.

But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.

It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.

The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.

I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.

About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.

I replaced all 3 color cartridge with origanal hp products, even after calibrations (3 times-full mode) only cyan and black are printing nicely. red and magenta colors are not printing.this is not driver...


This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degenration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta toner cartridge, red tones are the first to show fading. Colours shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer optics will need to be cleaned by a technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer deep into the optics to fix the problem.

Colour Cast


Updated section
This red issue has been bugging me over the last week. I have now created over 50 A4 prints of my test file and it was after reading a post from Dan P that the answer came to me. I had been trying to correct the over saturated reds by reducing it in curves, levels and colour balance. Of course this was not the way to go, unless the image has an overall cast. The better method is to enter into Selective Colour within Photoshop and adjust just the red only. The values I have used are Cyan + 15 (this reduces the red), Magenta -5 (removes the remaining traces), Yellow +10 (removes the blue and warms up the skin again), Black -15 (lifts the image). Save the settings and reload them on future images. Create an action and use one of your Function keys to apply the Selective Colours. Incorporate the print command within the same action, this way you can be certain that the selective colour will be applied each time you print. This may not be the ideal solution, but for me it will do for the time being, until Canon come up with a new profile. I expect to make colour adjustments on most images and this is just one of those steps.
8500_06.jpg ink.jpg Use the Selective colour adjustment - it works The ink levels after 55 A4 prints - I don't think so final-test.jpg final-reels.jpg As near perfect as I can get it Reels are now spot on Note: The above solution is a work-a-round which cures the excess red, once you apply the Selective Colour adjustment the screen image will not look right. The adjustment is applied to correct the printed version. Like so many things digital (and analog) you have to make adjustments to suit your own preferences. The strong vivid colours produced by the ip8500 will appeal to some, others may want to tweak their settings.
As a final note, I have just looked at the ink levels after 55 A4 prints and wow, this printer only uses the light Cyan and Magenta, the rest of the colours are all unused. I don't think so somehow. Canon, I think this does indicate that you have a problem with the driver and have another look at the profiles while you are fixing that.
Would I buy this printer?
Given that creating a new profile is not a major problem and I am sure a new one will follow very shortly, then yes I would buy it. Using Photoshop I have managed to correct the colours to suit my taste, however, some may like the bolder colours out of the box. The ip8500 features and image quality makes this printer stand out from the competition.
Price - £329
Pros:
Excellent photographic print quality
Lots of useful features
Speed
Separate ink tanks
Compact design

Cons:
The PictBridge port can't be used to transfer images to a computer
Colour needs to be sorted out
Black plastic case that reminds me of a cats coffin.
