    I have just started to get a green tinge on my photos and DVD surface. It occurs on black or brown colours. I have swapped inks from genuine to other and the same problem occurs. The Nozzle Check looks fine and so does the Bottom Plate cleaning.

This could be one of many things.
Monitor Calibration to Printer.
Camera green Bias
And good many more
The thing is not to print direct from camera , but to use an image editor to colour correct.
A free simple one is Googles free Picasa.
Otherwise there are many more some free a lot to be paid for.
As always there is a learning curve.

I am printing exterior photos of a buildiing on regular paper for test only. The color is printing out with a green tinge. What is happening?


Not using genuine HP cartridges could be one reason. Low ink cartridges could cause not enough ink to be used to make a certain shade of gray or black and thus causing the green tinge. Also if you are selecting photo quality printing then you need to use photo paper. The printer drivers tell the printer different commands depending on what kind of paper you tell it you are using. Good luck!

You need to set the paper type in the printer settings before printing

start -> control panel -> printers -> right click on your priter and select properties. there you will find the settings, look around there is a page on paper settings.

Colours are printing in yellowish greens and does not look natural. What can I do? Thank you.


Replace the colour cartridge -- you are seeing "mixtures" of only TWO of the THREE "primary" colours.

Photographs do not print properly . they have a green tinge .i am using a new cartridge


Print-colours are "additive".

Your GREEN ink is working fine,
but one of the other colours of ink is *NOT* working,
resulting in an incorrect "mix" of colours.

Most ink jet printers have a self cleaning you can do.
The fact that you're getting shades of green usually indicate that the red is not printing properly.

Self cleaning should take care of it

Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!

My canon i960 is printing only green


I had this problem. If I tried to print a black& white photo on to glossy paper, it would only print green. When I tried on to plain paper using the 'fast' option, it printed in black. The reason for this is, on plain paper it uses the black cartridge, but output to glossy photo paper using the 'high' option, uses the mix of colours in your colour cartridge. If one or more of your colours has run out, you will get a print with the ink left in the cartridge. Replace the cartridge or refill it & your problem is solved.
