you say 'a lot of problems with the colour'

What sort of problems?

Have you run the 'clean print nozzles' cycle (in printer - maintenance)

If you are not from UK there may be different laws about warranties and consumer rights.

What I am suggesting is that if your print problem seems incurable and the printer was only bought recently you might be able to have a replacement.

It is very much at the cheap end of the range, but Canon have a good name to protect and may be able to put things right.

Are your new Inks made by Canon?

If not check that the old cartridges are not "Chipped" > If they are you will need to get one of those 'devices' that re-sets them.

Have you run the 'Set-up' procedure?

This involves various print-outs which will indicate any of the nozzles that are blocked or faulty.
