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?

Could be lots of things...are you using the paper
that each printer mfg. recommends? Are you using
the most recent printer driver from the site of the mfg?
Are you positive that your ink cartridges are not
low and / or need cleaning? Have you contacted
HP and Canon support for advice?

Maybe the following articles will offer some ideas:
