HP C3150 is printing green instead of yellow. How do i get yellow?


You should first check your ink levels to make sure you have enough of all colors. Do this through the printer toolbox on your pc. If the ink levels are fine you should print out a diagnostic page. Follow these steps to print out a test page: 1. Press and hold the cancel button 2.Press the start copy color button. 3. Release both buttons.
If there were problems with the test page run the clean print cartridges utility. This can be found in the printer toolbox in the device services tab.
If that fails as well, you should look at replacing your ink cartridges with new ones.

Hi! The problem will surely be on the printer head. It may have reached it's break point that when it performs a larger print outs it fails on the half. You can replace the head itself but I strongly suggest that you purchase a new one for optimum performance. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

New Cartridges - not all color ink printing!


It sounds that the ink inside the cartridge has partly dried up.

This can happen to my printer when I don't use it for a couple of months too.

Hope this helps!

My printer is printing in hues of green colors


HOW DOES THE TEST PAGE COME OUT?
If the test page also does not print properly, maybe you don't have run out of red and yellow color in the cartridge.

Color on photos suddenly has a blue - purple wash with no greens


Your yellow cartridge is probably not working as your photos suggest. Remove and reinsert the yellow cartridge. Try printing only yellow color.
Your printer has a separate head for printing; the nozzle for yellow ink might be clogged. Try running a head cleaning routine from your printer software.

Yellow is a greenish color


Try printing this test pattern. I got this from this other website. But as ridiculous as I may sound, did you put the yellow cartridge into the Cyan compartment? Because to produce green you need to combine yellow and cyan. This test pattern will tell you which colors are not working properly. Then we can trace which cartridge is the problem or not. Let me know the colors that come out.27dfd86.jpg

Cant remeber the ink cartrige #


Hello, there are two ink cartridges for this printer, 336 Black & 337 Color,the cheapest way to buy these is at costo,Please do not refill your old ink cartridges as the printer will on most ocassions tell you to remove the faulty cartridge, however you may get away with a refill only once. I changed to a Brother MFC it was easier to install,prints faster,it has fax,scan,copy phto capture, you will need to buy use printer lead for this machine as it does not come supplied, the bonus of having the Brother MFC 235C is that the 4 ink cartridges are half the price of one HP Black Cartridge,check out www.999inks.co.uk
