Re: green hue

I am not a printer expert, but since none of them have jumped on your question, I will try to help. I had a similar problem with my Dell awhile back and found out it was a problem with the paper. First, try printing a picture using plain copy paper and see if it has the green hue. If not I would think the printer and program are ok. Make sure you are printing on the glossy side of the photo paper(some of it is hard to tell the difference) and that your printer preferences are set for the correct type of paper you are using. Please reply to let me know what you find.

You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

You need to make sure you are not using the photo magenta, your printer doesn't use photo magenta and it leaves the prints green. You need also to run the nozzle check print by holding the resume button until the green light flashes twice, and see if all colors are printed. If not you need a new printhead, the part number is on the side.

Black does not print well

Try priting a test page to identify the color in questions.

Chances are you are running out of another color...

In reality the printers actually use other colors to print black, besides the black ink. (I.E. if its a picture etc...)

A greenish hue normally means your Magenta is running low.

Color problem

What does a nozzle check pattern show? Are there any gaps in the pattern?

As a first port of call I would suggest you follow the instruction in my previous posts about under head cleaning. This can solve all kinds of issues with print quality and even if it does not sort your machine, you know that the head is clean and the nozzles are clear. Read this post

If that does not get you on the way, post the results of the nozzle check and we will see where to go from there.
