hi there,

please check the ink level

this problem occurs when ink level is low

you will therefore need to order new cartridge for your printer

I am having the same problem. Ink levels are fine. The test pages come out printing just fine. However, when I go to print a color page in Word and other programs, the color comes out magenta.

Also, I cannot seem to setup specific print combinations (color, 2 sided; black and white, 2 sided; etc). I had it setup on my old computer (running Windows 2003), but now that I have a new computer (with Windows 7), it doesn't seem possible. Any ideas?

Most likely the mirrors are dusty. Magenta is the first color to have problems. Here is a link to a pdf I used to fix mine. This worked well for me, but this isn't for the electronic faint of heart.
