Re: changes color when printing

Your other color cartridges are running nearly empty, perhaps. if only 1 cartridge in this machine, the same thing has happened (multi-chambered color cartridge)

How do I change the print cartridges?

  • Open the printer cover and prop it up with the support brace located on the right-hand side of the cover.
  • Remove the black FINE ink cartridge from its container and locate the protective tape. Gently remove the protective tape used to cover the print head nozzles and electrical contacts.
  • Insert the black FINE ink cartridge into the printer slot labeled "B." It will rest on a slight angle. Push the cartridge up and back until it clicks into place.
  • Repeat the process for the color FINE ink cartridge, placing it in the slot labeled "C."
  • Raise the printer cover slightly to loosen the support brace. Fold the brace inward and replace the cover to its closed position.
  • A green LED light will flash on top of the printer. In about a minute, the LED stops flashing and displays "1." Once the "1" appears, you're ready to print.

    I have a hp 3310 wireless. It prints in colour well but if you print in black most will be not clear although a line every so often is printed clearly. If you print the same document the same lines...

    What you are trying to print is created in RGB. This means it is a photo that has been created in a color format that will ONLY print if you print it in full color. If you try to print your photo item in only black, it will only print what it sees in TV Colors, a combination of RED GREEN BLUE. This is why you will only get part of the image printed when only in black.

    The only way to change it to print the whole image in all black, is to open the image you are trying to print in Photoshop or another professional grade photo program, and to change the settings of the image to CMYK, effectively, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black. Then, change the image once again - to GREYSCALE. This will effectively change all the colors to a SHADE OF GREY, in different HUES.

    Save the picture as a JPEG, and then print from the desktop, from your picture viewing software that came with your computer, and you will see everything print out from the black ink, in greyscale.

    The printer driver must be set to print text with the K resin panel.
    If the text is part of a bitmap image and not a true-type font then it will print from the coloured panels and be dark grey.
    To create the correct green on the card you need to change the RGB values so it prints correctly but look wrong on the badge design program. Even different printers print the same colour differently.

    My xerox Phaser 8560 is printing green? It was working fine but now All my pictures have a green hue. Why

    I need to know something first. If you print a test page, an internal page, a confirmation page, menu page, etc, does the machine give you a green hue ?
    Have you tried to shut the printer down and allow it to reboot? There is tec color correction on your print driver properties. You can try adjustments with that.
    But first let me know if the internal prints are ok , then lets go from there.

    HP Deskjet F4180 Color changes and lines in photo printing

    HP always recommend that ink cartridge should be replace by original ink.

    As this kind of scenario will occur if the ink will just be replace by a refill ink.

    My pictures are green when I print them

    Possible hardware / driver or application issue.
    Do a printer check first. Print a nozzle check pattern, if you see gaps or breaks or if any color is missing, clean the printhead. make sure that you are using an epson cartridge.
    If ok, make sure that the print settings are correct.
    If that does not resolve the issue. Trash and re-install the drivers.
