    Pixma 6320D prints too red. The printer menu allows only adding more red and yellow. Same result printing from Canon software or Photoshop. Ted.

    Canon Pixma MP450, using Canon inks and Canon paper, prints out too red. Yellow-red fox is raggedy ann red; surrounding yellow white grasses are orange. Monitor is calibrated, using Elements; seems like too much magenta. Blues look violet, etc.

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.

You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Ip4000 printer prints but with horizontal lines

Cannon recommend a cleaning process called deep head cleaning

  1. Open the Printers folder.

    - For Windows XP select 'Start', 'Control Panel', 'Printers and Other Hardware', and 'Printers and Faxes'.
    - For Windows versions other than Windows XP select 'Start', 'Settings', and 'Printers'.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  4. Select the ink tank color(s) for deep cleaning ('All Colors', 'Black', or 'Color').

  5. Confirm the message, and then click the 'Execute' button.

  6. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the Power light flashes twice to determine if further cleaning is necessary. Up to three deep cleanings may be necessary to determine if the print head is working properly

Colours are not true, grey is brown

You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.

Canon pixma ip4000 color not printing correctly with full inks

In both cases be sure using correct ink. Use of generic ink can lead to leakage of catrridge seats do to crossion from inferrior ink quality (per Cannon). Be sure ink in proper locations - see manual. Run the maintenance proceedures: cleaning then print nozzle pattern. If all colors are not proper after two or three cleanings, perform deep cleaning. Print nozzle pattern after each cleaning. This should clear up problem. If not, print head may need replacement.
