When i try to print in color, the red prints as yellow..i am not out of ink


Most printers have 4 inks: Magenta, Cyan, Yellow, and Black. Red requires the printer to print both Yellow and Magenta. If your Magenta isn't printing, red will show up yellow. When you say, "I am not out of ink", you may actually BE out of Magenta, or your magenta ink nozzles may be clogged. I don't know what brand of printer or model you have, so I can't give you exact directions to clean the nozzles. The printer driver may have that ability.

My Officejet 6000 E609n printer doesn't print the correct colors. The red is printing yellow and the blue and green are a lighter version of what is on the screen. I have cleaned the printer head


Hi,

This is not a cartridge issue. IT is Printhead issue. Since you have done the manual cleaning, it is now time to replace the Printhead.

Regards,
Suhail

I am printing in red but output is yellow


Check the ink levels- it sounds like your Magenta is out- HP deskjets use CMYK to mix the colors- C = Cyan, M= Magenta, Y = yellow, K = intensity (black). Red is usually a blend of Magenta + Yellow- so if you don't have magenta ink in your printer, when you try to print out something in red- it will come out yellow

Printer will not print yellow or orange, but prints other colors correctly. Brand new lexmark cartridge.


> will not print yellow or orange

Yellow is one of the printer's "primary" colours.
Orange is mix of "red" and "yellow".

So, an empty "yellow" cartridge, or clogged ink-jets would cause your symptoms.

My DCP-115C printer was missing red colour.


Yellow is one of the colours used to produce a shade of red.

I don't know how but ther must be a way to print a test page to see if the print heads need cleaning I've never used a brother.

Printer prints colours in different colours


Either you are out of red ink or the print head is getting plugged. Most printers substitute the nearest available color when a color runs out or the head is plugged. As some shades of red are made with yellow mixed, it therefore prints only in yellow if red is unavailable.

The cartridsge printe red and blue fine. No yellow


The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.

Red ink problem


red is the combination of Yellow and Magenta toner, try printing one of each independently, if either is printing correctly yellow and magenta you should be able to print red. good luck

Printing Yellow instead of Red


The colours in the 3 colour cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow. If you want to print "red", this requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Thus if only yellow is printed when you should be printing red, it means the magenta is not printing i.e. faulty/empty magenta cartridge or faulty/blocked magenta nozzles.

Please post a new comment if you wish for further help with this problem.
