Question about HP (C1700-60308) (C170060308)

1 Answer

On HP C1700 printer, all red colors print as a form of pink.

I can't seem to get the printer colors in my HP C1700 printer to calibrate. I get blues, yellows, and greens ok, but no red. The reds are always a form of pink. The ink cartridges are new. Maybe I need to replace the print heads? (The display thing is broken and apparently you can't order a new part to replace it, so I can't read any messages.)

Hi....take it to a tech to check about the system control chip... the control chip would have gone bad... and they will replace u with a new chip..or else Try manually moving the head carriage back and forth a few times!
Also check, if there isn't some piece of paper lodged inside, if yes try to remove it carefully!..

these are the possible solutions u can try out...

Color print qualities issues


Perhaps you've tried, but check to see if your printer is printing color using the PS driver or the PCL driver. If you are using the PS driver the colors will not print correctly, but this is the best mode to print black and white since it will save your drum life and print faster.

Calibration not working


When you place the calibration sheet on the scanner glass, make sure you put it with the blue arrow facing the yellow triangle on the scanner. (the page must be, obviously, facing down).

As with the red color issue goes, try replacing the color ink cartridge. If that does not work, contact kodak support to fix the problem (you can go to kodak.com/go/itg for troubleshooting steps)

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.
