Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The quality of color prints from digital photos has degraded.

The colors are not nearly has sharp as they used to be. Our 5610 is less than two years old. We have tried cleaning, new print cartriges, and other similar solutions. So far nothing works. Is a new printer the only solution at this point?

When I try to print a photo, it doesn't use the photo ink cartridge, but defaults to the regular color ink cartridge. Where do I tell it to choose photo ink?


Check into the PRINT settings, available when you print a document. The paper type invokes different inks and print quality.

hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

Why does the printer use one black cartridge and not the other? Is there some way of instructing it to use the left hand one too?


the pixma printers use the large black tank in most modes like text and standard (default) or fast photo printing .. thats most economical when you are using just plain paper .... it will switch to the small black tank only if you select "High" quality mode .. that black matches the nature of the color inks much better and results in really good color pictures if you are using Gloss or Matt high quality photo paper .. you can select the quality level by the following ... when you start to print, a window comes up where you can select which printer you want ... at the right of this window is "preferences" .. click that .. now select the type of paper and "High" quality mode .... now the printer will slow down but will provide really nice results and it will use the small tank black ink instead of the large tank ....the small tank is only used for "high" quality photo prints which is only needed for high quality photo paper .. if you havent tried that yet you might want to get some glossy photo paper (either Canons or Costco has great stuff if you want a lot, like 150 sheets) but most glossy paper will work except colors might need tweeking for some ... print a nice photo in the high quality mode and you should be really impressed .. and you will be using your small black ink tank .. you might want to make the first few pictures small (2x3 inch) untill you are sure everything is the way you want it .. i usually print in the top left corner first .. then reinsert the same paper and try again right next to that .. i do that until i get the colors perfect .. then i print big .. 5x7 or even 8x10 on a new sheet... the high quality mode can be selected for just plain paper and it will use the special black ink but it doesnt result in a better picture .. so no point in doing that unless you want to experiment .. if you never print high quality photos then you will never use the small tank black ink .. it will still be used up eventually because of normal head cleaning the machine does automatically .. ...
grey scaling does not select the special ink unless you select "High" for the quality setting .. then yes you can print using that small tank black ..again it will buy you a lot if you are using High quality photo paper ... almost nothing for plain paper but at least it will allow you to use that ink .. ..

Bad photo quality after changing drum


your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5)print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,

Poor copy quality


there are 3 reason if the copy gray & less sharp:
1) the toner you are using is not compatible very well with the cartridge unit if you changed other compatible toner.
2) the cartridge going near the life-cycle, (also cause print blurred)
3) the photo drum going near the life-cycle
you may try to change the quality toner (original factory). or
change the cartridge if it is out of the life-cycle

Very slow printing


I'm not sure that there is a problem here.  The correlation between print speed and print quality, 
especially on InkJet printers, is a negative one.  That is, the higher the quality setting, the lower 
the speed. So, if you're selecting the greatest quality for your print option you will suffer the 
lowest output speed.  This is because the printer is taking time to ensure that it prints each 
minute detail onto the page.
 
If you are looking to keep the quality optimal, one solution may be to select a different grade of 
photo paper (or perhaps one with a different coating [matte, semi, gloss]) and test to see if you 
can lower the quality setting on these higher-end paper types and still achieve your desired 
results.

To get what you want from your printing paper, you will have to consider what you like in a print, 
how you intend to use your prints, and what you are willing to pay to achieve this at home. 
Some things to think about include: paper thickness, color brilliance and resistance to fading. 



1. Paper Thickness
When it comes to paper thickness, paper that resembles the look and feel of traditional prints 
will be the best if you like to print a lot of photos and pass them around. Thick paper just feels 
right in your hands and will also stand up better to handling. However, if you are going to put 
the majority of your photos straight into an album, a thinner paper may work just as well for you.



2. Color Brilliance
To ensure the photo paper you purchase produces good color, you can purchase small sheaves 
of a short list of photo papers which you think will suit you. Next, print a series of colorful test 
photos on each to see which has the best color. If you can incorporate colorful photos that also 
have prominent straight lines and people in them, you will also be able to check the quality of 
sharpness and skin tones in the same test.



3. Resistance to Fading
Always try to check the resistance of the paper to fading. Simply take your batch of test photos 
and tape them to the window that gets the most sunlight throughout the day. Then, before you 
go in to pick up a batch of replacement paper, check to see which photos, if any, are showing 
signs of fading. Any paper that shows signs of fading in this short time frame should be avoided.


4. Changing Your Ink

It is also important to remember that any time you change ink for your printer, you may find 
yourself getting dramatically different results.

Problem with printing smoothly


Hi morshi. I found a potential solution to your problem with your 5610 printing vertical lines at HP.com:

Vertical black lines or streaks

It's hard to tell from the rest of your message what other problems you're describing. I did find a troubleshooting page at HP that shows how to address general print quality problems:

Problem with quality of copies

If those links don't solve all of your problems, the Color printing issues page for the 5610 at HP has numerous other solutions:

Color printing issues

I know the name of that last link may seem misleading since you haven't described color printing issues, but the links on that page offer different general print problems and their solutions.

Good luck.

Lexmark Z53 prints photos on 'normal' but enlongates image on 'best'


I'm getting around the problem by using Windows or Nero print options to get the photo as near to the size I need. It would be good if I could print photo's from Photo studio though much simpler and less time consuming.

HP 5610 Will not print Color documents, only Black and White


Chances are that your print driver is set to print in black and white while the copier side is automatically detecting that your original is in color. To have the printer print in color: Select file print, select your printer and hit preferences. Select the Paper/Quality tab and switch from Black and White to Color.
