SOURCE: colour photo printing has a green tinge

This could be one of many things.
Monitor Calibration to Printer.
Camera green Bias
And good many more
The thing is not to print direct from camera , but to use an image editor to colour correct.
A free simple one is Googles free Picasa.
Otherwise there are many more some free a lot to be paid for.
As always there is a learning curve.

SOURCE: I am using Kodak Photo Paper and get a distinct

ive been printing photos on my new epson and im noticing the same thing i tired a different brand of paper (the dollar store kind) and there seems to be no greenish tint, im wondering if its actually the kodak paper itself i thought it might be the printer but the blacks on this other paper seem to be dead on. i also tried some hp paper in a 5x7 format insted of 4x6 and i didn't notice the greeny tint so my assumption is its the paper.

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.

The colour is not printing anywhere near the same as the image, its very yellow I have done the cleaning and the test print shows the blue to be very pale and I have tried 3 new ink cartridges, I did print...


Great job on cleaning the cartridges and even trying 3 new ink cartridges. Pretty much you did the basic troubleshooting already. This looks like a hardware problem but I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

IS THERE A SPECIAL CARTRIDGE FOR PHOTO PRINTING. MY PRINTS COME OUT WITH A BLUE TINGE TO THEM my printer takes No. 32 black and 33 colour..


Sir,
Your problem is not of specially cartrigde but what you need is a special Paper which is made to print Photos and other colour full pictures. If you see is not this problem then there is chance that your cartridge is leaking from blue color point as there are three inks in color cartridge Red,Blue and yellow , than you need to replace you colou cartridge with new one .

COLOURS PRINTED DO NOT MATCH SCREEN COLOURS OF ITEMS


I would try cleaning off the nozles on your print cartridges. If that doesn't help, replace them altogether.

Incorect line of colour from one edge to the other


I am presuming the rest of the page prints the correct colour and this is an area in the direction of feed that is missing yellow. Try swapping the yellow and magenta drum positions and then the green text should come out a very dark blue colour. if it does then the fault is with the YELLOW drum, if there is still a noticeable Cyan stripe still then the fault will be with the LED head or engine control board.

R1800 printing way too green/yellow


I had a similar problem with my R800 . I got a colour profiler to fix it and he used a spyder. Made an amazing difference. Well worth the trouble especially if you are printing a lot of photos

IP4000 Color Printing Problem


If you have a monochrome option, I would use that.
I'm guessing that your old black and white photo's (which I'm thinking you scanned in may have a sepia tinge which the printer is emphasizing, and if you only want black/white prints, no need to print with colour.
