My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

I am getting a purple cast to my photos for the first time since I've been using this excellent printer. All my inks are full or more than 1/2 full. I'm using the same paper as always. Is there any simple...


You need to hold the resume button until the green light flashes twice and release. It will print the nozzle check, look and see if all colors are printed, if not you need to run a couple cleaning cycles. Also make sure that photo magenta and photo cyan are in the proper places and not where the regular colors go and vice-versa.

Does the c7280 use seperate Magenta and PhotoMagenta cartridges? If so make certain the right cartridge is in the correct slot.

When printing pictures, they are discolored


You are running low on your color ink cartridge. It cannot mix the primary colors right anymore and the color images start getting a pink-purple tinge to them. Get a new set of cartidges and install them and this should fix the problem fine. Hope this helps.

Red cast on all prints


Sounds crazy, but have you got the LM (light magenta) and M (magenta) tanks or inks mixed up?

Also - check the profiles, if you've got a colour profile set up, you may have applied it twice, which would make a magenta cast...

INK Color is off


Hello,

That's usually a sign of a cartridge that is running low on ink. Especially if it happens in the middle of the picture. Also, make sure that you have HP Premium Photo paper when printing photos. Also make sure that you click the properties button on the print dialog screen and choose the correct paper type. It will make a much better picture. You cn find more information on the types of paper on page 7 of the manual.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks
