I am a struggling newbie for all intens and purposes.
Just plugged in my new Pro1oo and I am getting a brown tinge to what should be B&W prints.
I checked what seems but am at a loss.

Which software are you printing from, and what type of paper you are using? Also, what is the version of Windows or Mac in use?

Download and print this test image. Do not make any adjustments to the image in your photo software. Just download the file, open it in your software and print.
How does it look.

Click on the link in the message (which i think you did)
Click on the circled link in image below:
Since you are on a Mac, be sure you have installed the IJ series printer - you don't want to be using the Bonjour version of the printer.
Does Kirkland give you a suggested canon paper to select for printing?

Do the monochrome portions of the test print look OK?
I've done a lot of experimenting to get monochrome prints i am happy with. Here are things that I have learned:
1. The viewing light can affect the image appearance
2. Paper type has an effect
3. I get the best results by converting image to B&W in my software and then printing like I would any other print. I do n ot select B&W in the printer driver.
For your Kirkland paper I would try "Other Glossy photo paper" as the media type as a start.

The monochrome sections of the test almost look better than the test sheet.
I'll try the different paper.
I am printing from black and white images in the computer. I'm not making any adjustments except for the Apple edit sequence.
Appreciate your time

Glad to try and help. Once you get things sorted out you will enjoy printing.
If you go to the Canon eStore:
you will frequently find free paper deals when you purchase ink.
