Printing cmyk output on a canon pixma 8500

Every time I have to prepare something for a press that uses cmyk settings embedded in the image files I get weird colors from my printer. Do you know if there's a way I can emulate the cmyk color settings in what I think is an rgb environment?

Hi,

Thanks for posting in FixYa.

Please check for the printer setting, if it is set for Fast Draft,

Make it Best or Normal. Also check for the Device Manager, if any flag showing.

Have a Nice day. Dont forget to vote me.

Regards

Do the colour prints when printing RGB look all right?

If so, the printer is working.

What sort of CMYK are you trying to print? CMYK EPS prints, maybe?

If so, the the fault is one of not using the correct software; the printer is working, it is just not interpreting the encapsulated PostScript to reproduce a CMYK image. Use different software capable of reading CMYK EPS files. Photoshop is one such piece of software.

Many times its set to CMYK by default even though you have a RGB printer. Make sure the document color is set to RGB and not CMYK.btthr.jpg

You cannot switch to the larger black cartridge. You are using a CMYK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Black) format for printing color images.

The larger cartridge is used for text only. The smaller black cartridge is used for color or graphic images.

If the black cartridge was not present, every time you needed black in an image, it would have to come from the composition of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. This would greatly reduce the life of the color cartridges.

My Canon Pixma MP500 is printing only black.


Hey, Sound like something is wrong with the color cartridge. Replace the color one and try again. If that fails you might have to replace the printer as it doesn't sound like the problem is software related.

Publisher cannot print this publication. To print composite CMYK or separations, you must use a printer driver that is set to output PostScript language level 2 or later.


your printer and it's driver is not PostScript capable.

what you can do is, change your Publisher document setting to RGB, all inkjets use RGB.

CMYK is used by Printing Press

White bands across printouts


Either one of the print heads are bad or a cartridge. This is what causes that problem. I know it is a hassle but I would take it back. If try and fix it you could void the warranty.
