    I have a Canon MP780 printer seems to be working OK but when coloured text is printed it is coming out a different shade to the one on the office document on the screen. Have been working with quite a bold blue but it is coming out much greyer and more muted. I have tried on several different types of inkjet paper and colours do seem to be coming out 'wishy-washy' on them all. Has anyone else experienced this or anything like it. I only use genuine Canon cartridges and am not really sure when the problem started. Have tried all the things that might be causing a problem - print head alignment, cleaned the heads, checked printer settings, etc. Can anyone help me with this?

    getting color to replicate as you see it on paper is very hard. but you can try cleaning the heads in the printer options or maybe try changing the color cartridge.

    Select "Manual Color adjustment" from the printer properties window.
