Question about Canon SmartBase MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Canon MP 730 has worked just great up until a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly it has started printing color fonts and photos with the wrong colors - this affects all applications on my pc. Example in MS Word 2003 the red font (on the screen) prints purple. An Adobe Photoshop tiff or jpg that looks perfect on screen now prints with green or red tones. it seems as if the printer icc - color profile has changed. How do I reset the profile. I've tried downloading & updating the drivers - no change.
I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!
