When you print a test page, do all 3 colors show up? If they don't your cartridge is out of one color, or the print head for that color is cloged. When you install the printer on Vista, if you are using a USB cable, bring Vista all the way up and then plug in the USB cable. Vista should then tell you it found a new device. If it does, the Vista probley has a driver built into Vista. If it askes you if you want to use the existing drivers, say no and chose the drivers from the Vista printers.

Why do some prints have a greenish skin tone after appearing normal on computer screen?


Color laser printers, especially the big high end office printers, have the color capabilities you need for printing the company logo and the occasional Excel pie chart - but they are truly bad for printing photos.
But the good news is that almost any of the current generation of ink jet printers, even the cheap ones, are pretty good at printing photos - but only if you print in the printer's high quality setting on photo paper, if you use the cheap office paper you will get the same desaturated colors you got at the office.
Now, the colors in print will never be the same as on screen, especially the brightness (because the screen is a light source and he paper isn't) but you can get good results results, here are the options depending on how accurate you want the colors to be:
1. Just print in high quality on photo paper
If you like the way colors look an screen right out of camera and you never calibrated your screen than it's likely you won't notice the problem from uncalibrated printer (but it will never be the same as on screen).
This should be good enough for most people and will probably match the results you get when you get the photos printed in cheap labs.
2. Calibrate your monitor
If you're serious about getting the right colors you first need to make sure what you see on screen is really what's in the file, this will probably get you predictable results (that is, the difference between screen and printer will be predictable and you can learn to compensate).
There are several systems that will let you calibrate monitors, some are not very expensive.
This should be enough for most serious hobbyists and pros
3. Use name brand paper that has profiles available
The next step is to use good paper and get printer profiles for that paper you are using.
4. Calibrate your printer
The next step is to get a device that can calibrate both your screen and your specific printer with the specific printer you are using.
Those are definitely not cheap and this should be good enough for everyone.
5. Know when to stop
This rabbit hole goes very deep, if you want truly accurate color you might find yourself in a black shirt (to avoid reflection) in a room with gray walls and special balanced lights (to avoid color casts) manually adjusting color space conversions.

There is no Gray, it is Green gray. Photos are not what is seen on screen, Need calibration or something.


The colors on your computer monitor might differ from the device output. Select Screen Match in the Color tab of the printer driver.

For most users, the best method for matching colors on your screen to your printer is to print sRGB colors. The printer uses sRGB and automatically optimizes color output.

HP 1600 color laser printer--colors are out of sync


Check the following information please.

General print quality issues

Solving issues with color documents This section describes issues that can occur when you print in color. Color document issues Problem Cause Solution Only black is printing when the document should be printing in color.

c00659983.gif Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver. Select color mode instead of grayscale mode. The correct printer driver might not be selected in the program. Select the correct printer driver. The device might not be correctly configured. Print a Configuration page.

One or more colors are not printing, or are inaccurate.

c00659984.gif Sealing tape might be on the print cartridges. Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridges. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The device might be operating in excessively humid conditions. Verify that the device environment is within humidity specifications. One or more print cartridges might be low. If you are using non-HP print cartridges, no messages appear on the device control panel or in the HP Toolbox. Replace any low print cartridges. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. A color is printing inconsistently after you load a new print cartridge.

c00659985.gif Another print cartridge might be low. If you are using a non-HP print cartridge, it might be low or empty but you will receive no indication. Remove the print cartridge for the color that is printing inconsistently and reinstall it. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. The colors on the printed page do not match the colors as they appear on the screen.

c00659986.gif The colors on your computer monitor might differ from the device output. Select Screen Match in the Color tab of the printer driver. If extremely light colors or extremely dark colors on screen are not printing, your software program might interpret extremely light colors as white or extremely dark colors as black. If possible, avoid using extremely light or extremely dark colors. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The finish on the printed color page is inconsistent.

c00659987.gif The media might be too rough. Use a smooth paper or print media, such as a high-quality paper that is made for color laser printers. Generally, smoother media produces better results. Repetitive image defect ruler Use a repetitive image defect ruler to measure occurrences of repetitive image defects to help solve image quality problems.

Trying to match color between photograph on monitor to printer. OS is Vista.


The only way to get color matching with the solid ink line 8400, 8500, 8550, 8560, 8860. Is to build you own colors with the CMYK sampler printout.

Beware this will print over 50 pages of swatchs showing the mix of CMYK for various colors. Your can then look at the color you want and see how it's made up i.e. 30% 30% 40% yellow gives a orangish color. You can then build these colors and name them in your application.

You will NOT get Panotone color matching with the solid ink series.

Screen colour not matching the printed pages


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.

Dull colors on 8550 phaser printer


Hi,

Looks like you don't use the Magenta ink that much, on this machine because it is so hot all the time after a while the magenta can get a strange brown colour and the cyan can get like a aqua marine colour. All you can do is purge the magenta by printing magenta sample pages or just wait until it goes away.

Also you could try the following Tek Colour correction (but It probably won't work). See below


TekColor
Description
Automatic Applies the best color correction to each graphic element: text, artwork, and photographs Office Color sRGB Display: Approximates the colors on a computer display.
sRGB Vivid: Produces brighter, more saturated colors than sRGB Display. Press Match SWOP Press: Matches specifications for Web Offset Publications.
Euroscale: Matches Fogra glossy paper specification.
Commercial: Approximates U.S. commercial press target.
SNAP Press: Matches specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production. None Applies no color correction. Use with other color management tools, such as International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles, ColorSync, or the PANTONE Color Chart for the printer. Black & White Converts all colors to shades of gray

From the workstation, select the color correction in a supported driver.
Microsoft Windows 98 SE / ME / 2000 / XP/ Server 2003 / NT 4.x Operating Systems (OS):

NOTE: Some of the color corrections are grouped under Office Color or Press Match.
  1. Within an application, click [File] from the toolbar, and then select [Print] from the menu. The Print window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Properties] button located on the top, right of the window. The Properties window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [TekColor] tab.
  4. Select the required color correction.
