...well you know when companies say "use our paper and ink"? Well, some may think its BS but I found out the hard way. I started bringing my empty ink cartridges to Cartridge World to get re-filled, I saved half using them. Well that worked fine for 3 months or so until one day my prints started coming out with a blue tint to them. I checked the nozzle head, did an alignment and tried 4 different brands of paper. Checked Photoshop to see if any settings were changed. Nothing. Thought about buying new Canon cartridges but figured why all of a sudden would the pictures be blue after using re-fill inks, so I ruled that out. Go to Photo Expo on Saturday and what's the first thing the Canon rep tells me when I show him the print that's blue? "You're using re-fills aren't you." He said that Canon makes specific inks and that cheap soy ink that second hand stores use is not the same. I'm about to put in new Canon ink cartridges and test it, I'm sure that's the problem. So I guess I got what I paid for.

Yeah, I kind of lost track of your printer story with the good looking photo of the attractive blonde. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

If you have been using refills and are happy until now
MAYBE the guy refilling the cartridges messed up and started putting the wrong ink in a cartridge
or they have different brands for the different makes of printers and he used the wrong one

Just a thought

Stan, I did ask the guy if there was a chance the colors were mixed up or inadvertenly added to the wrong cartridges and he assured me they weren't so I took his word.

Got sidetracked with the kiddies so I haven't tested it yet, maybe tonight or tomorrow...and if it doesn't work you'll hear me scream from NY to Orange County. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

okay, changed to Canon ink and loaded Canon paper and my blue tint problem is gone! Tested it with the photo below and the print is pretty clean. It's really a good printer.
