I have two printers, HP deskjet 880C and Canon i950. When I print graphics on
the 880C parts of it are almost always bluish. When I try to print black and
white photos on the i950 they always come out bluish grey, not pure black and
white. What can I do to print just black and white?

Did you select 'grayscale' as the desired output?

Have you tried replacing black ink? Sounds like printer is using colour ink
to create the black instead of the black ink itself
