This is likely because your monitor is not calibrated with your printer. Search for monitor color calibration online and then calibrate your colors to match the color profile used by the MP610, likely Adobe RGB or something similar.

My black and white photos will only print out in sepia. I have plenty of ink in the Cartridges of my MP610. Please help?

Two possibilities come to mind:
  1. There is a function in many printers that lets you print in the single colour of your choice. Check every tab and every "advanced..." dialog box you get when you are about to print. Then go to the printer's properties in the control panel and check whether there's anything like that
  2. Many printers let you print black with black ink, OR alternatively make black by mixing the other three colours CMY. Look for that setting in the same places and deactivate it

Ink shows full but will not print in colour

Sounds as if the printhead of your printer is blocked on one or more colours. I would recommend running 1-3 head cleans from your printer software and then printing some test pages to see if this has improved the situation.

If you have to do more after this point I would recommend leaving a few minutes between cleans to save super-heating (and potentially damaging the printhead).

My MP610 printer is playing up! When I print in colour on photo paper there are lines through the colour. I have tried running all the maintainance programms and cleaning everything etc but to no avail -...

are u used the head cleaning option in maintenance. if that also done, i think it is due to dust in cartridge head. take out cartridge and clean with a soft clean cloth. u can use alcohol for cleaning.

My Canon MNP610 prints black instead of colours - so I get a page of black instead of a map, for example

Press file-print (if available in the application you are using) or ctrl+P.This will bring up the Canon print dialog box. Click "Preferences" Uncheck the greyscale box. you will now print in colour. Sometimes clicking on a "print" icon by-passes the dialog box. Ctrl+P always works.

Hope this helps.

My laptop has CanonMP610 installed but when I click on print, I get a message that the printer is not responding. The printer cable is plugged into the computer and the printer works on another laptop.

  1. Unplug the Canon MP610.
  2. Click on the Start Menu, then Control Panel. Open the Printers, or Devices and Printers control panel. Find your Canon MP610 printer and Delete or Remove the device by Right Clicking on the device and selecting Delete or Remove.
  3. Restart the PC.
  4. When in Windows, plug your Canon MP610 in and wait for device installation to complete, or reinstall the CD drivers.
  5. Try printing a test page.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Lines running horizontally across the printed colour page

Checked ink cartridge's, two had dried out, still had ink in them but the exit apertures were blocked.
So new set of ink cartridges and problem fixed.

Printhead is blocked but it's only the Black PGBK cartridge on my Canon MP610 printer. All other colours are working fine. I can't print a letter unless I select a photo paper.

try removing the black cartridge and with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol clean the cartridge where the ink is. Re-insert and clean the heads.

I have a Canon MP610 printer.The Test page prints ok.The copy fuction is perfect co;our and black and white.When printing from a file saved on computer the text has a sepia tone not black and white....

just chk the properties or the colour cobinations if you choose text for printing out than it will only print text and if it is too dark red that means it is connected with some wrong colour wire
