HP f4180 prints the wrong colors, dark blue prints out as magenta

Hp f4180 prints out the wrong colors, dark blue prints out as magenta, red prints out as orange, light brown prints out as pink. Tried test page, new ink catridges and even tried adjusting the advanced color settings. In the advanced settings you can minus off magenta add blue and yellow, dark and light, but nothing has worked. in fact, after adusting the color levels, the printer prints out the exact way it did. The colors are not bleeding. I printed a page off a football website with all the team logosand all the colors are wrong with green color being the closest to normall and the blue and red colors being the worst. any sugestions?

    Exactly the same problem. Cartidges are new. HP "support" is no help - they just want to sell their overpriced cartidges. My only solution is never to buy an HP product again.

I have an HP Phototsmart C4280 that is printing everything in pink. Any idea why?


This is the cartridge color problem, if you've refilled the cartridge, there must be proportion problem (magenta/yellow/cyan), or if you print dark colors like green or blue (which uses cyan and yellow mostly) and never use the red or other color (magenta and black), cyan and yellow might have finished up. If you can refill it proportionately, go ahead, but i would suggest you to purchase new cartridges and install.
Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)


magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade

Colour problem


If the printer gives magenta instead of red you have a problem with one of the other colors. Magenta needs other colors to print red. Print a cofiguration print and check witch color is bad or missing. Replace the cartrridge of the missing/bad color

The color on the computer screen is different than what the printer prints. example a red/white/blue flag the blue is hot pink. on a christmas tree the green is blue


Is this a recent problem, or old quirk?

Best, to completely remove printer prog.

Go to www.hp.com search/enter your printer specs, and update/download your printer's latest update?

Good luck!

Prints "blue" on a document that supposed to be "red"


the red color contains the blue and magenta colors so your problem is not printing blue insted of red , your red laser miror is dirty from inside you should open the back of the printer then open the laser scaner then clean it then replace it

I had the same problem and the solution I found was to uninstall and then reinstall the printer driver. For some reason this worked. I now get the correct colors.
