Question about Lexmark X5650 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

New x5650 printer will not print all colors only red/pink tint.

Each time that I print a color document or photo, the color comes out in a light red or pink. How can I adjust the colors on my printer? Your immediate reply is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Assuming there is ink in the color cartridges and that it's viable, then you need to clean the printhead. There should be documentation for doing this in the software that came with the printer.

MY CANNON PRINTER IP3600 IS PRINTING RED IMAGES IN PINK


go to Edit > Color Settings, how is Photoshop Elements currently set? The first thing I would do is try setting it to "No color management" and see if you get better results. If this works for you, you're in luck, because color management gets tricky.In settings "No color management" does not produce acceptable results, you will have to start reading up on color management and color calibrating your devices, particularly your printer. You might want to also read Photoshop Elements Help topic "To print using color management."Most graphics software has setting for color management, but personally, I have always gotten the best results by simply turning color management off. Color management is primarily intended for people in a pre-press environment. Not everyone needs it. If you're not doing professional printing, first try working without color management before you assume you need it.

When I print pictures, they print with a pink tint. But when printing text, it comes out black/normal. How can I get rid of the pink tint?


Try to the clean the nozzles of your color cartridge. Refer to this article in the Lexmark website on How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles with the Lexmark X7350. If problem continues, try to insert a different known working cartridge to deternine if your color cartridge is faulty.

Not getting pink/red from printer. New Magenta


When the printer is ready with the green light on, you press and hold the resume button until the green light flashes twice and release the resume button. The printer will print a nozzle check page. If colors are missing you may need a new printhead.

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating
Cheers

Printing incorrect colours


Usually when it does that, it's just the nozzles that are really clogged up on the print head. Even if it does not sound logical, many colors use a bit of red and yellow to get the exact tint. In the many years i've fixed computers i've seen it at least a million times, one of the color nozzles clogs up and prevents that color from coming out, and from what your saying, coming out pink means that it uses only a little bit of red to get the exact tint of blue needed for the photo or image and the blue never comes out. So clean it up with the software that comes with it a few times, if it still won't work then either take the print head our and dunk it for the night in rubbing alcohol, or if you don't feel safe doing that yourself, bring it to your local computer technician and he'll give you an estimate of how much it will cost to fix and you'll see if you prefer bying a new printer or fix this one.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.
