Printer wont print the color brown

When I try to print the color brown it prints out purple instead. The priner shows the ink is full. I have done every cleaning step to ensure everything is working properly.

Try cleaning nozzle with dry paper towel, cartridge should leave 3 streaks: Yellow, Cyan, Magenta.
If colours on paper seams to be tinted or mixed the cartridge needs to be reclamated, there is no other solution.
If there is an lack of one or more colours try to wipe nozzle with wetted paper towel in window cleaner. After few wipes, 3 colours sholud apper

SOURCE: streaks on prints

Lines/streaks at the same location indicate either a speck of dust stuck on the glass or the glass may be scratched.

Why won't my printer print purple?

Your Cannon printer is not the problem. You will get different print color depending on the paper you are using, For example you will get different print result if you print on color paper than on white paper and a different print if you print on photo paper. Another alternative is to lighten the tone of your purple. I don't know what your objective is and what project you're working on but I hope this might help.

The color prints sheet is coloring light purple instead of grey. I check the black ink but is still half full.

grey is often made up of all the colours, so if the greys are purple it would be the Yellow missing or not printing completely. Try a printer head clean.

Colors are off. Browns print green or purple. I

BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

There are 4 inks, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. When the black runs out, you are left with sort of a dark purple or brown color.

I have a Lexmark X1150 printer that is printing purple only.

Try the "better" or "best" print options - They give more ink - might do the trick - (beware it also prints a lot more slowly....)

I have not had that type of problem as such as both my ink slots work, but I did have purple/bluish print instead of black once - It worked for me -
Hope that helps -

I have also found that despite cartridges being new somethimes they are not as full as they should....

Printer is printing wrong colors

Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.

Link to the manual - Aligning print cartridges is on Page 70.

Colors are not printing out true.

I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet

try doing 4 head cleans and then leave the printer powered up over night. Don't print or anything else after the head cleans until the morning then do one more head clean (this soaks the print head in ink overnight and then the final head clean should clear any obstruction. If the printer still refuses to print in colour, you could try replacing the cartridges anyway as they can be faulty. The only problem is thaty sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new priner. (how silly is that!) By the way, are you using compats or epson original ink carts?
