Default Purple Photos

I have a new Canon A80 and I am printing photos on a Lexmark Z65. The photos all turn out with a dark purple tint. The photos look perfect on the computer. Sent inquirie to Lexmark / no reply yet. I am refilling my ink with Lexmark Ink. Does anybody have a clue what is wrong? It could be the operator!!

Look in your printer manual to find the instructions on calibrating the colors on your printer.

Phill,
Just got message from Lexmark. They said to run a test print /
I did / there was no yellow on the test bar / I must have a clogged cartridge, when I get it cleaned or replaced I will write a post.
Thanks, Jerry

I put in a new color cartridge and the photos are printing perfect.

I get this problem with an Epson I don't use a lot, so I made a page in Coreldraw with larger labelled patches for each colour than the cleaning test printout. It helps to get the ink moving through and tell easily which cartridge is blocked - 'specially when you get 1 or 2 jets clogged and get the white tramlines.

Intermittent usage has been a killer for my Epson. If I do the clean cycle just to keep it working it gobbles up ink, so now I'm going to try leaving cleaning cartridges in it until I need it. Real permanent photo prints online are now becoming cheaper and a more viable alternative on a 24 hour turn round. VOX
