it depends, either the printer is faulty or has a modified color shceme loaded or the monitor is not displaying true colors but inhanced colors. try to first use one of the online screen calibration test to verify the colors on your monitor are correct if so then check the color scheme on the printer.
On a picture that you have printed, when you see an area of green, what color should it be? You probably have reduced flow of one of the "balancing" colors. Blue, Yellow and Red add up to Black. If your picture is supposed to be almost black and you don't have enough red, the color will pull toward the blue and yellow, giving it a green tint.
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
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.
To use the Color Correction Wizard, go to the printer's Color properties page, select User-defined color correction , then click Start Color Correction Wizard button. The Color Correction Wizard helps the user perform the following steps:
Choose the sample picture to be used. This can be the document that's open in the current application, or one of several samples provided by Hewlett-Packard.
Choose the type of correction to be applied to the picture. The brightness, the contrast, or the color balance can be varied.
The Wizard prints the same picture ten times with different degrees of correction applied to it.
Look at the printout and decide which of the ten is preferred.
A combination of corrections of different kinds can be used. For example, when selecting a brightness correction, the Wizard can be instructed to give another set of ten prints from which to select the contrast, or the color balance.
When the final selection is made, the combination of corrections that have been chosen will be saved. This combination may be saved and used in future whenever selecting User-defined color correction .
