Hp3210 only prints in greenish color. i tried to print to test colors and no blue ink showed up on my paper, red was poor, purple very light and I just changed the ink...how do i repair this?

This happens on photo paper, plain paper and i did all the calibration and cleaning recommended. Is this a costly repair?

Why won't a new tri-color cartridge print red?


Tri color cartridge contains Cyan,Magenta & Yellow color inks, mono cartridge contain black ink, combination/mixing with these inks desired color out put will prints on paper.. If any one or more inks are missing/dried, result mis matched print outs on paper.
In your case I feel it's Magenta ink is not firing..,nozzles may clogged, try to clean the nozzles with solvents & try it...If no result ,. replace the color cartridge..

Poor print quality


Try printing a test page, which shows a sample of the colors in the ink cartridge individually, usually yellow, cyan and red. It may be that the blue ink is getting low. You did not say whether you were printing text (black) or photos (color).

I print flower pictures. Purples/blacks/blues come out with a lot of red in them - for instance, purple comes out maroon. How to I reset the colour balance?


Assuming it is not a problem with ink or toner feed, the normal printer does not determine internally the colors but only follows instructions from the application (program) you are using.

If a test page from the printer shows the correct color or color balance, then you will have to do the color correction from the program that is controlling the printer.

Carefully read of the application's features and the variables possible from within the program itself.


BTW, the paper stock you are using and its absorption characteristics can also influence color saturation too.


Also, it is helpful if you include brand name and model number of the device for which you are requesting help.

I have new photo (58) and color (57) carts and when I print wallet size (9 pics per 8.5x11 photo paper) the first 3 print true color and the last 6 are blue. I have cleaned the rollers and still do not...


hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

New tri color ink cartridge will not print red


Probably bad, there's actually no way to check ink levels.

The printer colors are not come out right.


Go to this link. Type "print nozzle test" in the search box and click Search. Perform a nozzle test, and if the colors match what are on the instructions, your print head and inks are OK.

(1) If the print head and inks check out OK, type "wrong colors on print" in the search box, and you will see several troubleshooting steps you can try.

(2) If the nozzle test colors are off, confirm that you are using BCI-6 inks for all three colors and the small black tank. You should only have a BCI-3 tank in the large black position. If you have all the correct inks, your machine probably needs to be serviced/ repaired.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Xerox Phaser 8500 color issue


In all honesty, I suspect the print head has some bad jets on it.
Xerox will not warrany it since there is the presence of non xerox ink in the print head.
When you have tried as much as you have with the maintenance cycles. I would suspect a bad printhead.
When the jets become blocked to the point where you cant get all the colors sprayed onto the drum, you get mismatched colors.
