You are experiencing a printer cartridge problem. Sounds like some of the colors in the print cartidge have run out, either that or the nozzles are clogged. Run a nozzle check from the printer software, if it does not fix, try a new color cartridge.

Let me know how it works out for you.

Hi David,

There is no way HP will know what kind of cartridge you are using, Whether OEM or Geniune.

It is the printer which identifies if the cartridges are Refilled or Geniune.

Your issue is related to print quality, Clean the golden( Electrical contacts ) on the cartridges usually fix the issue.

My printer keeps printing pictures with a red tint. I changed all the ink cartridges, but it continued doing this. How can I fix it?

Sounds more like the print driver settings are set out of normal. Either set it back to default, or uninstall and reinstall fresh. That would be the first step to troubleshooting. Also check both sides of the carriage rod for a pocket the ink is shot into when it cleans the heads - it may have a build up that is high enough to rub onto the print heads when it parks or cycles, creating a reddish tint.

The black is printing dark redish brown

Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.
