Unfortunately that's the age old problem of matching colors between computers and printers. Your printer is probably not the problem, that's why he couldn't fix it. Even though your monitor is set to default values it doesn't mean that your colors are correct as colors can vary from monitor to monitor and the color temperature is probably too high causing the colors to look lighter than the printout. The picture on the monitor may look good to you, but it's not set right for matching printer colors. Monitors use RGB (Red, Green & Blue colors) colors and printers use CYMK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta & Black) colors and you have to make them get the results you want. You will have to do some tweaking of your monitor's settings to get it to match the printer output. Below are some links that will help explain things better and maybe help you adjust your monitor.

How to adjust the color on a HP Officejet 4635 Printer? The is much darker and "off" color from the original picture.


Colour control is not a function of the printer. You need to adjust your PC/laptop display to show a more realistic image by sourcing some test patterns, see link:
http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test

When your screen is properly set up, open the picture you want to print and see what it looks like. Use a suitable photo editor to adjust brightness, contrast etc. and then try printing again.

How to get the black darker


You can use Paint on your computer to modify it. If not it just might be the type of printer. See if you can buy darker ink at another store. If not your pretty much stuck like that. You can also go to copy stores or most major stores to get stuff copied for free or cost....

HP C5180 will not print new checks from tech checks, says wrong paper size


Hello,

has it been printing checks from tech checks before now? If yes, disconnect the printer from your computer, uninstall the printer software/program from your computer's control panel, restart your computer, reinstall the printer software and try again.

if the above doesn't solve the problem; follow the procedures below to successfully reset your printer:

1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product.
2. Remove the cartridges from the printer.
3. Wait for the "Insert Cartridge" message to display on the control panel.
4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
5. Wait 60 seconds.
6. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
7. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.
9. Reconnect the USB cable to the rear of the product, and then try printing again.

Lastly, if the two above doesn't work, you will have to download Hp diagnostic utility on your your computer,install is on your computer and it will help to detect and solve the problem.

Visit the hp link below, read all the information on the page and download the diagnostic tool from the page.

The preview colors do not match the actual print.


This is usually a cartridge issue. If that doesn't work, then try cleaning the printer head. Make sure that there is paper in the input tray. On the product control panel display, touch the tools icon. Touch Tools and then touch Clean Printhead . The product calibrates, cleans, and aligns the printhead and then prints a test page. If this doesn't work, please visit this site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=33721&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3315742&lang=en

Every program prints the colors on my photos different than how they look on the screen. What setting will calibrate all to be the same? I have a Samsung 23in widescreen lcd monitor, and use Lightroom,...


That happens because the screen color resolution is better than the printer color resolution. You can set your color scheme down to 16 colors. Right click on the screen and select the appearance tab to change the color resolution
