    My dark areas black and blues are printing out purple. I have a Canon MP830 and I use re-fills. I have carried out a nozzle chk, nozzle clean, head clean and roller clean. Still have this problem. Dark areas in my photos are printing out purple. Reds print out great aswell as yellow, brown & light blue.

    I have a Canon MP500 which prints purple in the dark vignetted areas. Got any ideas on how to fix it?

    My grayscale photos look "vintage" with a little bit of a pink/orange tint to them, and there are lines through everything. Sometimes, the printer won't pull the paper forward enough and will print on air, and then eject the blank paper. I've done nozzle checks, run cleanings, etc.

Sounds like your yellow is not firing correctly. You may either need to replace the cartridge or give it a good cleaning.

Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards

Printing problem


Perform several Head Cleaning cycles and do a Nozzle Check. If the nozzles are still clogged turn the printer off overnight to allow the ink to soften and then try cleaning again.
