Hello Sisboom40,


So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know exactly which operating system is running on your computer and which apps you're trying to print from. That, and any other details you'd like to give will help the Community better understand your issue!

Thanks and have a great day!

I've been on hold for 15 minutes I called the number you suggested...

Going on 25 minutes is there another number?

Hello Sisboom40,


A technician will be with you shortly. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience.

Did you do as I instructed you?  And you are still getting poor results? Smiley Frustrated

As John Hoffman stated, it is most likely your monitor is off.  Not the printer.

Thanks so much for checking in I have done everything spent hours on the phone with cannon and there was very little perceptual change..going back to Epson I'm afraid. Due to the pigment vs ink character ..I appreciate you so much!!

Let me be frank, thousands of us use the Pro-100 with fantastic results.  You can, too. There is no reason why you should not be able to make great prints.  You must do as I have outlined.

Unless and barring a printer malfunction of course which is unlikely but possibile.  It is a brand new printer?

See this article and print the test image.


Its been my experience with my printers and friends I've helped that the problem is the monitor calibration and not the printer.


(Thats not to say you might have a printer problem.)
