Search the web for ICC Color profiles and work flows. Other search terms: RGB sRGB, Adobe RGB, etc
You are correct about potentially removing the settings on the printer as this can change the workflow process at the output stage. Typically you allow the program your are using for editing to manage color space and workflow from beginning to end.
Correct monitor calibration is also important, but ensuring the same color profile throught the entire workflow is what provides consistent results. You will benefit greatly doing some reading to better understand how to control profiles during capture, editing and output. Once you get the work flow dialed in, you will love your printer.

What paper are you printing on? Is it possible you are printing on the wrong side?
What software are you printing from? Can you paste a screen shot of your print settings?

Not sure if you ever found the solution to your problem. I was dealing with the same issues today. I was printing from Photoshop, and had followed every suggestion I found on the internet. I calibrated my monitor, and used the correct settings, but nothing was helping. I came across this youtube video and noticed they were using Print Photo Pro (can be found as a plugin either through LR or PS.) I tried a print through Print Photo Pro and right away the photos were a lot closer to the monitor than before. Maybe this might help you. Good luck!

I'm helping a very senior friend who has used his Canon Pro 100 with a Mac for several months, with good results.
A couple of weeks ago, he suddenly had a problem with the colors on the Pro 100. Colors were pale and washed out. He only uses Canon OEM ink and prints from Photoshop. However, printing out of Chrome produces the same faded-looking colors as does printing colors in a Word document.
This afternoon, I brought a Win 10-64 notebook and connected to the printer via USB. SAME problme - wathed out colors.
Reading posts on this problem has been NO help. Two different OS computers having identical printing problems would seem to point to the printer as the problem. Any suggestions ?
Thanks for any help -- that will help.

1. Does it still print OK from the Mac?
2. There is no Chromebook driver for the printer, when printing from Chromebook it’s probably using a general driver that doesn’t utilize all printer capabilities.
3. Did you install the Canon driver on the Windows printer you used?

Thank you for the quick response.
The color problem IS the Mac printing. My friend started to have the problem after months of using the printer.
Regarding printing in Windows, I just plugged it in to the USB port without loading a driver. I now know that a special driver exists and will download and try again.
Cannon's support page has Win and Mac drivers for the Pro 100 and I'll try to install them on the respective computers. Of course, that does not explain WHY the printer suddenly started to give my frriend problems after monhts of good use.
Will follow up after installing the drivers.
