Are you using original inks?

Have you printed a nozzle check pattern to ensure none of your nozzles are clogged?

Try different software without colour management.

I'm still using Paintshop Pro 9 to print. It was the last Jasc version and has nothing in the way of colour management from what I can tell. i had issues with my IP4000 and MP970, but I could get away with just lightening them a little either in the print profile or using curves before printing and the match wasn't bad (Certainly not spot on but much better than what you're seeing, and skin tones not ruined).

I just got a Pro 9000 Mark II. I'm finding I need to do literally nothing to get the prints pretty accurate and very pleasing. My first A3+ prints are of our wedding photos and I now have them hung around the house to replace smaller A4 prints.

My forum postings reflect my own opinions and not those of my employer. I'm not employed in the photo business.

My prints are perfect also, i just adjusted Magenta a bit, and i believe the printer drivers are running everything. I have Windows 7 64 bit and Corel paintshop pro 4 also. Someone above sugested to try a different software, that's a good idea, try downloading one of those FREE temporary applications just to see what might be causing the issue.

This problem is either software compatability, a particular setting or something is wrong with that printer. Is very simple, if the OP got the printer with warranty why not just return it for another good one, they you will know for sure is not the printer. In fact, depending where you bought it from, when you return it they will ask you very likely, why you are returning it, they you tell them is printing the way it is, and they might even try helping you set it up properly before you send it back.

By the way, have you tried calling CANON??

I guess i missed the last two posts.  I am glad you guys solved the problem!
