Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
All of the pictures I print come out with a blue tint.
I had a very similar problem and found out that the problem was the quality of paper I was using. Remember, a photo printer is expecting high quality results. Cheap, low quality paper will not accept the ink as well as higher quality paper. I can't guarantee this will solve your problem but I have not had any green tints since switching to a higher quality photo paper.

Epson doesn't like Generic Cartridges.
Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.
That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)
