Ok, So I finally thought I had the whole color management thing down, and then a new problem occurs.

My monitor is calibrated using a Spyder II and it's software.
Color Management is turned off in the printer's drivers.
No effects or color sliders are tampered with in the printer drivers.
I am using Photoshop to manage colors and I am using the correct the ICC for my paper.
I am using Ilford Smooth Peal Paper; In the past I have created excellent prints with this paper.

Every image I seem to print has a red color cast to it. the redness is especially noticeable in the highlights of the images. I have tried canon paper as well as Ilford and I am having the same problem with both.

For example in the image below the blueish wall behind the sofa will look almost red in stead of its original color. Also there will be red in places that appear white. Red appears in the skintones, the sofa the carpet, and the male's socks lol.

In the following image the highlight in the upper left hand corner of the wall has a red cast to it, and the skintones look more red than they should.

I have tried using a hue/saturation adjustment layer and pulling down the red saturation; but its not working. HELP!

Thanks a lot guys, any suggestions and info would be awesomely Awesome!

looks fine on my monitor, you may need to create a custom profile for your printer.

Yeah, the images look good on my monitor as well its the prints that are red. The thing is I have created prints in the past that did not have a red cast. Should I do the printer maintenance checks or something? The printer is pretty new though....

Maybe pop the printer back open and double check that you didn't reverse any of the cartridges like your reds, magenta, photo magenta?

Have you done a nozzle check and print head alignment from the maintenance tab of the print dialog?

I agree to much red.
I'm guessing it is not the printer.
Just a few things to check
Are you using the proper paper profile from both photoshop and the printer dialogue box?
When you say Color Management is turned off in the printer's drivers under the color/intensity you have selected none.
Have you re-calibrated?
Have you tried printing from another program?
Do you use use the color profile aRGB?
I have a PRO 9000 so the print drive dialogue box may be different.
Here I have used a curve adjustment. Using the color space RGB and selecting the red channel.

OP, I am pretty darn sure you have a faulty cartridge which is actually empty but not reporting the same to the printer. I know because I have faced similar problems.

Run a nozzle check - it'll print rectangular patches of all the 10 colors individually. You'll find one of the patches to be faded/or with no color. That is your faulty cartridge. Of course, that color's nozzle could be blocked as well.

Good luck and do report back.

Nozzle issue, cartridge issue, cartridge in the wrong slot. I would think along those lines as well and run the maintenance checks from the printer dialogue, nozzle check and pattern check.

Have you changed carts recently and maybe mixed one up? BTW, excellent images!

Could be corrupt profile or double profile issue between PS and the printer.

Whoa I didn't realize people were still responding to this post lol. pixelshooter.net you hit it right on the money. My photo cyan cartridge was not registering as empty even though it was completely depleted. I popped a new one in and it fixed everything!
