Hi, I am having problems with my Canon i9950 printer, for the last few days it has been printing with a pink colour cast. I have tried all different colour control settings in both potoshop and the printer dailogue but still no change. Does anyone have any similar experiences or can offer me any advice?
Regards
Russ.

You've probably done it already but perhaps its a blocked nozzle, maybe try a new set of catridges?

there should be an option to do a nozzle check in the printer software, that will quickly determine the prescence of a blocked nozzle. Of all the ptoblems I have had with blocked nozzles it's always been the Cyan ink, hence the pink cast.

Thanks to both of you.I had tried cleaning the nozzles but decided to try again after your advice and its worked.
Thanks again, I only wished I had given it another clean before I reinstalled the drivers etc.

You should use the printer at least once a week to avoid ink drying out, or at least run it through a head clean.
