Default puple blotches on i850 prints

Just recently my canon i850 printer has started to , usually with the first print of the day, print the beggining of the image with almost all purple and black tones and then corrects itself about an inch into the print to the proper color, i have no idea why it starts out all purple, any suggestion?

Hmmm. The only thing I could think about would be that you might be using an offbrand paper. This could be a problem because in the begging of the print doing edge to edge it has a slight difference in the way it lays down ink. Slower and a little more overspray. Although if this is occuring on cannon paper I reccomend calling cannon they are probably the best ones to help assist you with your problem.

I have an i850, but its a little hard to guess whats going on, can you give us a little more info :-)

You say, usually with the first print of the day? Is it JUST the first print of the day, all others are fine? Or do you get it with other prints too?

Has this always happened, or just started to happen recently?

What size prints does this happen with?

What paper are you using? Are you using Canon OEM ink?

What setting are you using? What system are you running?

Do you have the latest i850 drivers installed? (check the Canon USA site for new drivers).

Do you have the auto power off and on setting activated?

Are you letting the printer warn up before printing?

Anything else you can tell us?

Its might simply be you have a defective print head (it does happen) and no amount of playing around with it will fix it. Canon is pretty good at replacing defective print heads under warranty tho :-)
