For the past couple of weeks Qimage prints done with saved setups are printing with an overall magenta tint.  I've been using Qimage for years and I know about profiles, whether used by Qimage or printing using the printer managing color. I removed all icc profiles from the computer before I tried using printer manages color (Adobe RGB). No magenta cast and a perfect print!

I've spent a week getting new cartridges and doing multiple printer tests, but it registers all OK.  No blocked nozzles or any noticeable faults.
So can I install a previous version of qimage and see if it is the same? Is anybody getting similar issues or is there a known fix?

Hi,
The information and the tests are well done.
What you are saying is that no profile; perfect prints.
With profiles from previously saved setups; magenta.

With those facts in hand, it begs the question: how are the prints using the correct profile by manually selecting it, and more importantly, manually restting the driver's Color Management to OFF or NONE or No color Management (depending on the brand and model printer)

Next question has to do with paper.
Off brand? Canon, Epson, Costco?
Profiles? OEM, came with printer, or home made?

My bet, somehow the Color Management setting in the driver was accidentally saved while it was still on some form of color management.
