Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing is very green

Recently, when I print photographs on this printer using HP (semigloss) paper and proper HP photo ink cartridges, all but the top centimetre or so has a strong greenish tinge. Small images are fine and the second print straight after is all greenish. I tried changing the colour cartridge but it didn't help. I did recently install a revised driver from Windows update.

Re: Printing is very green

I would suggest that you clean the carriage assembly with a q-tip and at least 90% solution of isopropyl alcohol. Then I would check the carriage rest area, using a clean paper towel carefully soak up any excess ink there. Then check the paper path from start to end and make sure that there is no paper pieces.

I am printing exterior photos of a buildiing on regular paper for test only. The color is printing out with a green tinge. What is happening?

Not using genuine HP cartridges could be one reason. Low ink cartridges could cause not enough ink to be used to make a certain shade of gray or black and thus causing the green tinge. Also if you are selecting photo quality printing then you need to use photo paper. The printer drivers tell the printer different commands depending on what kind of paper you tell it you are using. Good luck!

Brand new canon ink cartridges but my photographs are printing green. I tried the test print out and it came out ok. Could the photo paper I have be the problem?

Usually if your using the wrong photo paper the ink will come out wet on the print instead of drying while coming out of the tray. Printer settings then need to be changed.

I would also suggest cleaning the print heads. But you say this is a brand new machine. I'm also assuming you are using canon cartridges which would eliminate the head cleaning. Was the software installed ok also. (Driver anyway).

Can print paper but photos have green tint

If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Ink not dry when printing photographs

Download the proper drivers from - DON"T use standard Windows drivers.

When you have the proper drivers installed, you will find an "Advanced" tab in your "Printing Preferences" where you can set "Ink Volume" and "Dry Time".
Try using less ink and a longer dry time.

Also, make sure you're using photopaper that is designed for "INK JET PRINTERS".
(Laser Jet paper won't work).

Any photo that you print on glossy/semi-gloss paper will be wet as it emerges from the printer (especially ones requiring lots of ink).

You could manualy "catch" each one and set aside to dry, which should only take a minute or two.

Professional printers use a special drying powder and timed spray rig when printing on coated cover stock and glossy materials.

Printing options have disappeared (re plain paper; glossy paper; CD etc)

here is ur fix

The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.

Photo printing

It is definite one cartridge is not running. You do one thing - 1. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Red. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
2. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Cyan. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
3. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Yellow. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
I am sure when you changed the color to Cyan - it did not print Cyan or blank page you got.
So you must replace the Cyan cartridge or may be ink is not coming out through the passage. And first you have to check whether you have removed the plastic tape from the head of t he cartridge.
