Re: Stuck with the dreaded Canon 9500 mk2 magenta cast issue..

I have similar problem. My PC runs W7 (64), Phase One Pro 6.3, Adobe CS5 and Qimage Pro. Recently I installed PIXMA Pro9500 Mk II and printed several tests.

First of all I checked I had the latest printer driver, then I aligned printer heads and printed test pattern. All seemed OK. After that I printed a test photo downloaded from one of the photo sides. Now, the colors and saturation was great when I let printer manage the colors (full auto). However, when I let CS5 or Qimage manage to colors the prints were washed out and had slight magenta cast. Soft proofing in the CS5 showed similar results. And yes, I double checked the right profile and printer color management set to none. I am lost now…..I guess I will just print in full auto mode now till I find correct solution.

Oh, my working space is sRGB and I save all my images in the same color space.

My monitor is calibrated on a monthly basis (NEC 231W) using Spyder 3 Pro and NEC Spectraview software.
