My printer refuses to print correctly, its displays all photos with a green hue. Whats up with that? Its an inkjet canon i560 printer and it only did this once, ages ago and I managed to fix it somehow. But I dont know how now, so please I need help! Why would this happen? I was thinking it might be some program I installed like photoshop that might have changed the color profiles!

Are you sure your not low on Blue and Yellow ink. and what Printer do you have? and what 3rd party programs do you normally use to print, I.E. the Printers supplied software or Windows default drivers. Photoshop will add a new color profile to your system but it will not overides your Printer drivers default color set.

How long has it been since you last used the printer. Do you use it regularly. If it has been a while since last used, maybe your Blue and Yellow are clogged with dry ink at the ejection point. If you know your way around the Printer driver console try to find an option to set Factory Defaults. or try printing a webpage in IE and not from Photoshop to see if Photoshop is the cause. Heres the Interactive help page for the I560 printers http://alpha03.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900

Umm, those color gauges that show ink levels never work. I suggest you buy a new cartrige, you'll need a new one some day anyway.
