Question about HP DeskJet 3820 InkJet Printer
My HP3820 printer has a blue tinge to everything I print. I have changed cartriges and the problem still exists.
I would like you to start with maintenance routine,
1. Take the paper out of the printer.
2. Turn the printer on.
3. With the printer on, hold down the form feed button (the otherbutton, there are only two: power and the form feed) and watch thestatus light.
4. When the status light has blinked three times, let go. Theprinter will make some noise and attempt to feed paper and it will keepdoing this cycle 4-5 times. When it’s done you can put paper back inand print.
If you still have the problem,then try these....
1. Make sure that the catridges you have changed is original HP CATRIDGE.
Double-check the cartridge part number.
It seems that HP is quite
picky about having the correct cartridge part number.
If you are sure that you have correct catridges , then the reason for getting blue tinge to everything you print is,
that the FUSER might be dirty or broken. This may require replacement.

Thanx for using fixya,

Good Evening Richareelita:
Hope that you are wellJ
These are the solutions that I found for you. Personally, I think that you need to update your drivers, but wanted to offer you more than one solution.
Adjust printer settings
Click Start , click Settings, and then click Printers.
Right-click the icon (picture) of the printer.
Click Properties .
In the Properties dialog box, click the Details tab.
Look for the text Print using the following driver .
Under Print using the following driver , verify that the name of the printer is listed.
Click the Color or Color Management tab.
Click Automatic .
Click the Setup tab. If you do not see a Setup tab, click the Device Options tab. If you do not see a Device Options tab, click the Details tab, and then click the Setup button.
Locate the text Print Quality .
For Print Quality, choose Best or Presentation .
Look for the text Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice . If you do not see any of these options, click the Paper tab.
Click in the box under Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice .
In the list that pops up, choose the type of paper or film you are using.
Under Photo Paper printing , choose PhotoREt .
PhotoREt is available only if you have chosen HP brand paper under Paper Type. If you don't have a PhotoREt option, look for the text ICM . If you see ICM , click in its checkbox to add a checkmark, and click OK .
If you see a tab called Advanced , look for text Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone .
Move the sliders next to Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone to adjust these settings. If you cannot find these settings, click the Graphics tab and then click the Color button. Choose the options that match the type of document you are printing.
Click OK .
Close the Printers window.
Open the software application that you were using to print.
If this does not work, try updating your drivers or uninstalling and reinstalling your printer software.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
And, remember, always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.
Have a wonderful evening.
