    It was ordered through Staples and delivered in HP orginal packing box, does not say remanufactured on it.

    This problem has started about 6mos. ago maybe a little longer. Every time I put a new original cartridge it does not get any better. I wonder if it just needs to be cleaned. I really don't want to take the printer apart.

    I also have this issue with the magenta...I have tried new cartridges and refill cartridges. Also run the cleaning service and now I am at a loss. What should I do next!? I have no warranty left and am a really looking for a solution!

    One of the solutions to the magenta problem is the mirrors are dirty. How do you clean the mirrors in the laser unit?

Are these remanufactured or compatible cartridges? Bad toner would be my guess.

    Hmm..that's strange. Yes , that would be an original then. Did the problem just start when you replaced the cartridge though? Do you have another one to try? it still could be a defect -especially if the other colours appear better.

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)

magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade

This printer has stopped printing reds and oranges correctly ? they are faded. Changed the toners & no difference

Print a "Config Report" from the printers menu...If u notice that the fourth square on the left side (fourth being the bottom square) for Magenta (reds and orange) is missing or very faded, this could indicate that the optical mirrors inside the printer have to be cleaned...Design flaw. ESP..if changing toners doesn't work and your your faded issue is with Magenta (Pink, red, or orange) colours are the only faded ones...With this design flaw in the optical mirrors, magenta mirror is the first to be affected!
Hope this helps!!!! I work in the industry :)

Dell 3110cn Printer prints shades of pink

Have you pulled out the imaging drum and transfer roller to see if they are caked in Magenta toner? if so they will need to be cleaned off. Would also suggest blowing out the area around the drum to rid of loose toner in that area.
