Why is my printer printing in color instead of black?
First, check your printer settings on the file or picture your trying to print. If your page is setup to print in “grayscale” it will only print in black and white. Change the setting to “default” so it will print in color. If your settings look good from the start, the cartridge may just need to be primed.
Why does my Epson printer only print red?
The ink levels may be low and you may need to refill the ink. Visually check the ink levels. Also make sure you filled the tanks with the correct colors of ink. After you print, the colors in your printout need time to set as the ink dries.
Why are my pictures printing red canon?
It is likely the generic ink has something to do with the color cast. However, using the wrong media setting on a Canon with glossy paper will cause a magenta shift even using Canon inks. Use the Glossy Photo Paper setting. Other gloss settings almost always cause a color shift unless you are using Canon papers.
