Try printing a test page. If it comes out missing colors, the you color cartridge is bad. HP test pages will print each of the 3 colors by them selves, so you can see if you are getting all colors. If this prints ok, the I would think it is not a printer problem.

    How did the colors come out on the Test page?

    There is away to make the printer print a test page from its logic, not from the computer. This will prove weather it is the printer or the software.

The blue color is not printing correctly. It comes out sort of pink and greens are yellow. I have a new balck drum. I have put in a new blue toner cartridge. I have tried adjusting color saturation. ...


create a doccument with four identical lines of text.
the text should be as follows:
your text in the colour Black, the cyan, then yellow then magentta
see if they print in the colours you used, if they are all wrong then delete all drivers associated with the printer and delete the printer, then follow the install proceedure again to reinstall, if just one colour is wrong the it is most likely a deffective cartridge.

Blue colour is missing from colour cartidge


Something may have gotten stuck in the blue ink and clogged it. If the cartridge is new you may be able to send it back and get it replaced, If not you may just be out of blue ink.

My HP printer is printing colours in a pink shade, can you please help.


Printers usually have three PRIMARY colours: YELLOW, PINK, BLUE.

So, if you have no YELLOW or BLUE ink, what's left is PINK.

Why doesn't my A920 injet print colors properly--green comes out pink, and I still have half the ink left in my color cartridge.


1) Could be your printer settings, check out your printer preferences to make sure your not printing a negative or make sure you colour corrections is enabled.

2) If the colour cartridge is a 3 in 1, just one of the colours may have run out. Giving a distorted picture. That means a new cartridge. The best way to check that is to go to your printer tool box and print out a test sheet. There should be 3 colours (Magenta, Yellow and Blue) and Black. If one's missing, the cartridge is out one colour.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
Regards,

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.
