Color printer not printing blue

We have a 2 HP DJ1120C series printers - neither of which are doing a capable job of printing the blue hue. Every darker color requiring blue in the mix tends to come out a shade of red/maroon. There is nothing wrong with the color cartridges; one was new and have also swapped between 2 others and can't believe all 3 would produce the exact same color issues.

I'm assuming it would either be an error with the printer driver or something else in the communications area going to the printers. Any help on solving this issue?

    I have the same problem with my HP Photosmart 1115. I have replaced the color cartridge twice with brand new HP cartridges and the color blue will not print. All colors are pinkish.

SOURCE: When printing color, only prints shades of red

I had the same problem and went through TWO, count em, TWO HP cartridges before trudging off to Office Max and buying one of their knockoffs. Guess what? Yep, it worked. So, HP must've put out a bunch of bad 23 cartridges, from all the complaints I have seen online, either overfilled with red or only filled with red. What a pain at the price!

Wiping and cleaning didn't seem to work. I do believe these babies are filled wrong. I suppose if I whined enough at HP they would replace them, but I doubt it as their inclination would be to say I bought recycled (I didn't). Eh.

SOURCE: HP 6280 Printer.

Well you definitely have a pc problem and not one of the printer. the printer just prints what it is sent and as you can print the alignment page that takes care of the printer.

You have reinstalled the driver but did you remove the old one first? I bet not. You should download the hp printer removal tool. Run it and after a restart then you can install the driver. Personally i would turn off the auto update feature as hp updates really mess things up.

I reckon after the reinstall the printer will be fine.

I have HP 3700n color printer.


Your print driver is set to store the print job. Unless you have updated the amount of memory that your printer has, most 3700 series do not have enough memory to do this. Check your printer settings closely. Right click on the printer icon in the control panel and select properties. Click the advanced tab and then click on printing defaults and you will see a tab called Job Storage. Make it is turned off and then apply. This should solve your problem.

HP 6110 is printing different color than on the screen


computer monitors are capable of thousands if not millions of shades and hues of colors that even the most expensive professional grade printers simply can not print. greens in particular. if your creating something you know you'll want to print (say like a business card), you need to create it in "printable" colors. there are programs (like paintshop and photoshop) that can display on your monitor what will actually print. the results will shock you. all this post of course ASSUMES your printer is in proper working order, otherwise your problem will be magnified...

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Print colors


You might want to run a cleaning page through it. This uses up more ink that a typical print job, but it will allow you to clean the heads and force ink through them.

HP 7550 PhotoSmart Printer prints photos with an unpleasant green hue.


If it's a B&W or sepia photo, and you wanted to print B&W or grayscale anyway, pull the color cartridge (assuming a 2 cartridge system). I did that with my HP DJ 5440 and it works perfectly.

Yellow Hue when color copying


I understand your situation, however let me explain you that whenever you try to make a copy or print, yellow cartridge takes part and provides its color in all the aspects. Please do check that you use the HP ink cartridges and try to clean the cartridges for every 15 days as this may reduce the issues of colors.

When color printing, looks blurred, but not.


You need to align the cartriges. If you have the HP software installed on your machine, you can just open that and click on the align button. If not here is the link to download the software:

Just select your operating system and then download the North America/Western Europe full software solution under software. This should allow you to align your cartiges. Just follow the instructions when aligning. Hope this helps you out!
