Problem with the color

Whenever I print something out everything has a green tint to it. I looked and there is plenty of ink in all the cartridges. Why is this happening?

Re: Problem with the color

It could be a leaky cartridge. I would replace that first and if it does not work, replace the printhead.

Yellow ink doesn't print from the cartridge.

Try to change ink jet cartridge with a new one from hp and then blow off the contacts with compressed air. Make sure the tape is removed from the nozzles of the ink jet cartridge before installation.

Good luck on this repair.

Dell 720 color cartridge doesn't seem to be printing with enough 'green'...all pics tinted red. New cartridge. Is is possible to balance the color any better?

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- some of the ink-jets may be clogged, thus reducing the amount of ink reaching the paper.

Try "photo-quality" 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)

Faded coloring

Clean off the bottom of your color cartridge with a slighty damp tissue to make sure the whole doesn't have ink stuck in it. If that doesn't work then its possible the ink has dried up in the cartridge and youll have to replace it. How old is the color cartridge and do you print often with it? If so if could be running low.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors

I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Color printing with green tint

Most probably your ink color RED and BLUE has run out. Refill/replace the color ink may help to solve your problem.
