HP 290 Color Copier no yellow color

I have replaced the ink cartridge twice, cleaned the printer 3 times and still no yellow color. This of course means no green, etc., either.

Hi,
I assume that when you cleaned the printer, you went into maintainence tab in the printer properties and hit the clean tab. We clean our printer heads this way and that always seems to fix the problem.

The printer won't print out any of the reds in my images, even when the colour cartridge has just been replaced, and prints any red areas in yellow instead.


Hi is this a new printer? If you've just installed a new color ink, it would prompt you to align the cartridge or print some test page.. If the RED doesnt show on the test page, then try to perform maintenance on it.. Like Clean cartridge or clean print head.. it may be clogged.. if it still does this, try changing the color ink.. If you color ink is from a stock, it may have dried up.. if you bought it just days ago, ask for a replacement.. If all has been done, it maybe the printer itself..

Hope this helps.. :D

HP 5550 prints only half of most lines


If you print very much, especially with color, the best solution may be to sell the HP, and get  a Canon MP520,  it's super fast for an inkjet, the brand name Canon ink cartridges are much larger in (ml) ink, it comes with FULL ink cartridges, not starters with little ink.   The color in is in individual cartridges C, Y M (they don't all get used at the same rate) so you will potentiall save lots of money.  A Canon brand Black cartridge for $13 prints about twice as many pages as the HP $30 cartridge ... you do the math.  

Oh yeah,  it's a scanner and fast color&bw copier too.

$129 at walmart (the cost of about 4 HP cartridges)  I am confident that you will never buy another HP printer.

Excessive Yellow ink use


Issue The printer is working, but the colors in the printed output are not the expected colors. The output may look as if only one color has printed, or as if a color has not printed, or as if the wrong colors have been printed. Solution Complete the following steps to resolve this issue. Step one: Check ink levels If the print defect is minor, it might be caused by reserve mode operation. When the printer runs out of some colors, it can continue printing using remaining inks, but print quality may be affected. If cyan, magenta, or yellow is out, the printer can print only in grayscale.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. If ink cartridges have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges. Replace any empty print cartridges. To access the ink level gauge, follow these steps.
  1. Press Setup .
  2. Press c00707172.gif to select Tools , then press OK .
  3. Select Display Ink Gauge and press OK . The ink levels are displayed. Figure 1: Ink levels c00410056.gif
    • Each icon corresponds to the cartridge that is the color of the icon. The icons are also in the same order, from left to right, as the cartridges in the printer.
    • If an icon is empty, the corresponding cartridge may need to be replaced soon.
    • The ink levels in non-HP, refilled, and remanufactured cartridges cannot be read by the printer. Instead of an icon, a question mark is displayed for these cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.
Step two: Calibrate the color If the cartridges have not been refilled and none are empty, try calibrating the color.
  1. Open the printer Toolbox :
    1. Open HP Solution Center (click Start , then All Programs , then HP , then HP Solution Center ).
    2. If you have more than one printer installed, make sure to select the correct printer tab in HP Solution Center .
    3. Click Settings .
    4. Click Print Settings .
    5. Click Printer Toolbox .
  2. On the Device Services tab, click Calibrate Color , then follow the onscreen instructions. The procedure takes about two minutes and requires two sheets of paper.
Step three: Clean the printhead If the steps above did not help, clean the printhead.
  1. Open the All-in-One Toolbox :
    1. Open HP Solution Center (click Start , click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center ).
    2. If you have more than one All-in-One installed, make sure to select the correct All-in-One tab in HP Solution Center .
    3. Click Settings .
    4. Click Print Settings .
    5. Click Printer Toolbox .
  2. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , and then follow the onscreen instructions. Three levels of cleaning are available.
Step four: Contact HP If the error still occurs, click the link at the bottom of this page to contact HP.
