Question about Canon MultiPASS MP390 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The color printing kept getting worse so I installed a new color cartridge and that did not help. Now the printer will not print in color at all.
If the color was faded and the printing blurred, what I did was to check the nozzle pattern,align the print head and then calibrate the process. It's all in your manual. Once I completed those steps (just a few minutes), the printing was clear and the colors bright. Hope t his works for you.

Tips for a great answer:
A new color print cartridge needs to be installed.
If available, click the Continue button on your computer screen to print using the
black (or photo) print cartridge. (The Continue button is available only at the
beginning of a print job.)
Note: A variable amount of ink remains in the color print cartridge.
Follow these steps to replace the color print cartridge in your printer:
1 Cancel the print job if not already canceled.
2 Replace the color print cartridge with a new cartridge. For more information,
see "Removing a used print cartridge" on page 35 and "Installing print
cartridges" on page 35.
3 Print again.
To order supplies, click Order Ink on your computer screen. You can also see
"Ordering paper and other supplies" on page 40 in this guide.
