If your colors are all in the right slots, I would do a test print. This is usually done by turning the printer off and then hold the form feed button down while you turn it back on. It will go into a test print mode and print out some pages and tell you what lines should be what color and so on. If it test prints correctly, then the printer is not the problem and I would simply reload the printer driver software again since you may have gotten some sort of gliche in the software driver. Normally that will correct the problem. If the problem comes out the same in the test print pages then go through your setup procedure on the printer itself per the user manual. If the problem persists then it is a problem an input/output color processing IC on the main board and you will need to take it to a repair shop. Good Luck and God bless.

see if they print in the colours you used, if they are all wrong then delete all drivers associated with the printer and delete the printer, then follow the install proceedure again to reinstall, if just one colour is wrong the it is most likely a deffective cartridge.

Probably a blocked printhead.

Make a simple graphic using something like PAINT.
Small filled colour squares - one for each colour of cartridge your printer has.



You'll soon see which part of the printhead is clogged.

I have a HP OfficeJet G85 all in one machine. Just changed the colour cartridge for a HP original one. First alignment page was good showed all colours. The first time i used it it would not print red it...


Have you any applications like deep freeze installed on your computer machine? If so uninstall it restart your computer and try to print again. The fact is some programs cause colour malfunction in the computer. The similar scenario I encountered, I had to format the system for the colours to print correctly again. But i have seen where deep freeze cause similar issues before.

Good luck & God bless!

Why doesn't my A920 injet print colors properly--green comes out pink, and I still have half the ink left in my color cartridge.


1) Could be your printer settings, check out your printer preferences to make sure your not printing a negative or make sure you colour corrections is enabled.

2) If the colour cartridge is a 3 in 1, just one of the colours may have run out. Giving a distorted picture. That means a new cartridge. The best way to check that is to go to your printer tool box and print out a test sheet. There should be 3 colours (Magenta, Yellow and Blue) and Black. If one's missing, the cartridge is out one colour.

Printed colours doesn't match with monitor colours


Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
  • Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space.
    Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
  • Monitor settings differ.
    The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
  • Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different.
    Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour
Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.
