Photosmart 7750 prints with yellow tint

My printer usually prints gorgeous photos and the colors stay very true to what you see on the screen. When the ink starts to run out, the pictures tend to have a yellowish tint. Today I bought NEW ink cartridges and my pictures still look yellowish... Or at least much more pale than they are on screen/they usually look when I print. Any ideas?

Hello,

On the left side of the print head carriage is a white plastic gear that drives the ink pump. Check it first to see if its firmly in place, has chipped or worn off teeth or looks damaged in some other way.

If this white gear driving the ink pump is damaged or looks odd let me know right away so we can address this issue.

Now, there is a trick for resetting your particular HP printer. This sounds and is convoluted but it will work. However, the system will think all your ink cartridges are full. If they are rather full okay. If they are near empty you will want to run this hack again as the ink nears low. You won't get a ink low warning correctly after this until you've installed new full tanks eventually.

Turn the printer on. At the same time, using your left hand, press the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down and hold them down. While holding these down buttons use your other hand to turn the printer off, still holding the four buttons down with the left hand. Once the printer has powered down fully you can release the buttons. Now, the printer will initialize and then run a maintenance check. If you printer is otherwise okay, no damaged circuitry or gearing you will be fine. Turn the printer on. It will start up and shut itself off, this is expected. Once it is off again, turn it back on once more and this time the printer will run the maintenance routine. Have paper in the feed tray.

1.) Check left side of printer carriage for the white gear that drives the ink pump. Look to see if the gear is off, broken has worn or chipped teeth.
2.) Turn the Printer On.
3.) Hold down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons with your left hand and hold them down.
4.) Use your other hand to turn the printer off. Keep your left hand on the buttons until the printer is off.
5.) Turn the printer on, wait for it to turn itself off. Have paper in the feed tray.
6.) Turn it on again and it will enter the maintenance mode. Follow any prompts during the maintenance mode, if any.

You should be back in business now. If not, try the routine again, sometimes you have to run it more than once. Should it still fail, let me know as you may get an error message and error number.

Regards,
Worldvet

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

Red and blue tint


Often "grayscale" is achieved by mixing some of your colors (CYM) to form composite black and gray - not necessarily just black from your black cartridge. Often there is some yellow used beneath the black -- so if you are getting a red or blue tint, it could mean something as simple as being low on yellow ink.

I have been printing photos and they have come out beautiful. Suddenly the colors are all muted, and brown hair has a green tint. My printer is an HP 6180. Nothing has changed - same paper, ink...


It sounds like one of the colors is not printing correctly. I would suggest , opening your hp solutions center programs and under tools you will find an option to clean the print heads. Follow the procedure to cleans the print heads, after cleaning open control panel on the computer and depending on the operating system click on "printers" (XP) or "devices and printers"(vista win7) right click on your printer( hit your right mouse button) select " printer properties" click on print test page. This page will print out showing each of the colors separately. You should see black, blue, pink and yellow. If one of these colors is missing or muted you will now which color is cratinging the issue. And at that time I would try changing the corresponding ink cartridge. Hopefully the print head cleaning will resolve your issue

Printed photos have red tint


check the tri color cartridge, it is possible that you may have more genta ink remaining in the cartridge then say the blue or yellow
as well as check the applicatiion you are printing from... it may be a setting in the rgb color format that is over riding the windows settings

When printing a photo has a yellow/green tint. All other functions work it prints and scans great. Just have a problem with printing photos.


Possibly it is running low on Blue ink - because colors are usually a mixture of inks - for example green is made from blue and yellow - if an ink runs low it will print the available colors or substitute the next available color.Probably if it prints green yellow - then it has no blue available to make the right shade.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Green tint when printing


Hi, did you tried to calibrate your colors but on the printer? The printer decides which color it's gonna print, regardless to the color on the screen. He's gonna try most of the time to print the closest color he can make. We call this WYSINWYG. What You See Is Not What You Get. You should have a tool with the HP printing software. Otherwise i guess you can print a test page to check the colors. Make sure each color Cyan/magenta/yellow and black print corectly on the test page. Usally on HP printers you have to hold the Go button 5-10 sec and it's gonna print the test page but refer to your manual if you are not sure how to do this. Could also be a problem with your print heads, check if there is a procedure in the manual to clean those.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Green Tint Over Entire Printed Picture


I had a very similar problem and found out that the problem was the quality of paper I was using. Remember, a photo printer is expecting high quality results. Cheap, low quality paper will not accept the ink as well as higher quality paper. I can't guarantee this will solve your problem but I have not had any green tints since switching to a higher quality photo paper.
