Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer

Whenever I print out a photo, it has a purple tint. I changed the black cartridge and the first couple photos came out fine, but then I started getting the purple tint again. What can I do to fix this problem? I tried a gentle clean and a deep clean and neither worked. thanks!

    I have the same problem on a brand new Canon Pixma MP 610. So far Canon suggested changing the app - (yeah right, I'll believe that when I see it) and installing the driver from the web site , which is older than the one I have installed.

Check your print settings for an option " Print in greyscale" or something similar. If it is so check or uncheck it to solve your problem.

My canon ip6700d cannot correctly detect the ink level in one of the cartridges. How can I fix that problem?

Hold down the (red) Stop/Reset button until the message disappears from the printer display.
Then clear all jobs from the print queue (select and cancel each job). Then resubmit a print job.

Printing purple instead of black on photos

Did you recently buy the cartridge? What is the expiration date on the box? It may be old or not working well, just as you have guessed, and the printer is using the color cartridge to create black when the black does not function. If you have the option return the cartridge.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only

My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!
