Poor colour repro using Canon Printer & Scanner

  [email protected] 10:58 28 Aug 2008

I have a Canon Pixma ip5000 printer and a Lide 80 scanner. Recently my printing has not been matching on screen colours and also scanning is giving a pinky hue with browns instead of blacks and greys. Is there anything I can dfo about this? Thanks!

it may be a callibration problem - monitors have to be setup to show correct colours or what looks ok does not print ok - or you could have a dirty printhead on the printer if this has only just happened. You could look for an updated driver for your printer.

Thanks will check for updated drivers and also ink levels and clean heads through. If it's callibration how do I do that?
Will also have a trawl through the links- much appreciated thanks!
