I was printing photos tonight with my 6940 and suddenly the photos started coming out with the first half (left sides) printed correctly, and the right half has a red hue and striated lines. I thought the black cartridge might be out, so I replaced it and the photos are coming out the same. I've just replaced the color cartridge a few weeks ago, so it is not empty. Any suggestions?
I tried printing 5 photos, and all came out the same way - left side is printed correctly, right side is ruined.
Right-click here and choose "Save As" to download a high res photo of the photos as they are coming out of the printer.

It appears as if your colour cartridge is out of ink. If this is the case you should be able to see this in your ink gauge through the driver tool box.
Here is steps how to check this
it is located approx half way down the page
Please let me know what you find out.

I have exact same problem. As the original poster said, the problem is not a low ink cartridge. I, too, recently replaced the cartridge, but the right side of the page fades to reddish hues. Just tried printing a photo, and the whole thing is orangey-red with faint horizontal lines across it.
Did original poster ever figure out a solution? Or does anyone else have any ideas?
