Hi - I have a Canon i350 which is supposed to be a fairly okay photo printer. I have bought a new colour cartridge for it. When I print a photo, the colours are completely wrong - in fact a washy green-ish colour rather than the strong bold colours of the photo. Can anyone advise please? Many thanks :)

Have you tried a self clean? Will be somewhere in the printer settings/maintenance.

Hi - and thank you :) I have now run the clean/align/etc. Then I created a Word document and placed 4 coloured squares in red, blue, yellow and green. The yellow is brilliant (literally), the 'red' is a pale broken orange, the blue is close but a bit striped and the green is almost okay. So it seems I am basically missing my red. Any chance it is the driver or something else?

We have one of these, and they regularly need cleaning, infact its major flaw is that if not used for a few days it is useless unless cleaned. Replaced it with a colour laser, problem fixed.

Sometimes you need to clean the head 5-6 times before it comes right. HP and a few others use the concept of attaching the catridge and head assy together, thus you replace the head with the ink/tank, Canon and many others leave you with the same head for the life of the printer, so if the head blocks then changing ink cartridges will not fix the problem, you need to clean several times, or use the deep clean function is still not right. Be warned the deep clean function uses a lot of ink, the standard clean just seems to scub the head without using much ink.
