Re: print color quality
This is ink related. I know your computer isn't telling you are out of ink, but it really doesn't know for sure. It is an estimate at best. From what you describe, either your cyan or magenta ink is out. If the ink levels are OK, then the printhead itself is not functioning properly. Invest in a new printhead (which comes with whole set of ink carts so you can still use the ones you have later.) Have seen it many times

It sounds as if your adjustments are off. Does this occur when printing from any program, or only a specific one? If any program, the setting has to be in the printer driver itself. Is there a "reset to default" somewhere in the driver? Under the "Color management" tab (Start | Settings | Printer & Faxes | Canon MP390 | Properties) there might be an "Automatic" setting - choose this. Also, go through all the tabs on the printer driver and turn off anything that might affect print output - you'd be amazed how many such settings there are. Hopefully, all you have is a tweaked setting which is causing trouble...

If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.
I have first some information for you and then a possible solution.
A lot of these sets had problems with the 3 picture tubes---blue seems to be the most common--if you go to a unused video input and see anything other than Input 1 etc like blue background or even blue curved faint lines do not despair.
There is a fairly easy way to adjust this (not with the remote) I can tell you the procedure and it requires no parts and only moderate skill.
Setting the font type color in a Microsoft Office Word document to black will ensure that the document prints the text in black. However, if there are images, graphics or photographs within the document, they will more than likely print in color or hued colors similar to black. To ensure that the entire document prints solely in black ink, you must set the color settings on your individual printer to black-and-white
Instructions: 1.Click "File" and then "Print." To open the print dialogue box using keyboard commands, press "CTRL" and "P" simultaneously. 2.Select the printer you are using at the top of the dialogue box under "Printer" and "Name." 3.Click the "Properties" button next to the selected printer. The dialogue box that appears is different for all users, as it depends on the type of printer being used. 4.Click on a tab, button or selection box indicating "Color." Most options include high-quality color, grayscale and black cartridge only. Choosing grayscale will print the document using various shades of gray and other tones such as blue or green that match the actual hues in the document visible on the screen. A photo or picture that may look black or gray could actually have blue undertones. To print purely in black and white with no undertones, you must select either "black cartridge" or "black and white only." 5.Select "OK" to return to the Microsoft Word printer dialogue box. Press the "Print" button to print the black-and-white document.
What you are trying to print is created in RGB. This means it is a photo that has been created in a color format that will ONLY print if you print it in full color. If you try to print your photo item in only black, it will only print what it sees in TV Colors, a combination of RED GREEN BLUE. This is why you will only get part of the image printed when only in black.
The only way to change it to print the whole image in all black, is to open the image you are trying to print in Photoshop or another professional grade photo program, and to change the settings of the image to CMYK, effectively, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black. Then, change the image once again - to GREYSCALE. This will effectively change all the colors to a SHADE OF GREY, in different HUES.
Save the picture as a JPEG, and then print from the desktop, from your picture viewing software that came with your computer, and you will see everything print out from the black ink, in greyscale.
To get the optimum quality print for your color prints of course everything has to be set just right. On your printer installation and print menu it will ask you if you want letter quality print or picture quality, make sure that you are using the right options in this case. Also be sure that all your ink cartridges are at least half full for print purposes. God bless you
