Sounds like either the color cartridge is out of yellow or the color cartridge is not working properly.  First step would be to change the color cartridge.

I have never used the Photo ink Cartridge #58. It intal pic shows putting it where the black one goes-does this mean I would use the color and the photo one at the same time instead of the black one?


Yes correct.The photo cartridge has to be inserted, where you install black cartridge.The photo cartridge gives finishing touch to the photos which you print.The actual photo comes from the color cartridge only, but for lightness and darkness, the color(ink) from photo cartridge gets used.In photo cartridge there are three color ink, that are light pink, light blue and grayish black.In color cartridge there are three color ink, that are pink(magenta), yellow and cyan( blue).------------- This are the details.Thank you for using fixya.

Just installed new cartridge but blue and red colour is not appearing on calibration sheet..?


Sounds like a bad color cartridge. Start by cleaning the bottom of the cartridge where the ink comes out of with a blank paper until the ink shows on the paper for all colors. If you can't get them to show all colors i would take the cartridge back and tell them it is defective.

Just wondering: my printer's yellow and black toner are both empty and need replacing. Would this cause the printer to calibrate for minutes at a time? After calibrating, I tried printing a document with...


If your going to print in color may it be just red or blue. You really need all of the cartridges for it to work. Because for the printer to come up with those colors. It would need all three colors Cyan, Magenta and Yellow to come up with the any color, in your problem, Blue and Red.

Scanning is not producing accurate colors for all colors. For example, Halloween shade of orange scans as pure yellow and brown comes out quite pink. Tried shutting the machine down and restarting much...


You'll need to calibrate your printer in order for the prints to come out with the correct color. In addition to this, if you're printing from .pdfs, you can set Acrobat to "print as image", this also helps in correcting the colors as they appear on your monitor, although this is NOT as accurate in correcting color as the "calibration" part.



Hope this helps. :)

HP 4600 printer shows all cartridges OK and the print quality adjustment for all colors is set at 0. Have calibrated and adjusted color. Yellow does not print Pages come out in pinks


Try a new cartridge. If this doesn't solve the problem then check the lens cover of the yellow printhead. It should open when you close the front cover. You can check it by taking out all the cartridges and than close the frontcover slowly. Watch the lenscovers and check if they are opening when you close the front cover. Good luck, Gerrit Jan

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.
