    All the pictures I print are yellow now; I changed the tri color cartridge, still yellow. Test prints that the printer prints are fine, only pics i print from either the hp image zone or corel photopaint are yellow.

    I have done all the cleaning the printer is capable of. Test prints by
    the printer are beautiful. Everything I print (from internet,
    photopaint or any other printing program I have is still yellow.

    the printer is printing shades of yellow instead of grey. Everything
    not black is printing in shades of yellow. Black prints fine. Have
    changed the tri color cartridge with no improvement.

    Everything had always printed out true to color and the same thing happened out of the blue. Now everything I try to print in color is yellow. I tried all possible cleanings, installed new cartridges both color and black, and all test pages came out perfect. It is yellow for everything I want to print in color, including a copy of something in color from a website. Thias is very frustrating and getting expensive!

HP7660 Photosmart Printer

It comes with HP #57 (C6657 A)—Tri-color print cartridge and HP #56 (C6656A)—Black print cartridge and the 56 must always be in there (the black one) but acceptable replacements for the color one are as follows: HP #58 (C6658A)—Photo print cartridge I suggest for the best photos use 58 and 56.

Draining the ink!

Printing photos with Epson drains the cartridges alot faster than printing documents. The dpi settings for photos are much higher to get the photo quality. Blue is a base color that helps to mix to create some of the colors in the photos so this is normal with the Epson brand. Hope this helps.
