Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Picture prints too pink

My photos look great on the computer screen, but they print out too pink. It's almost like the yellow in the cartridge is out of ink, but that shouldn't happen. It's a Kodak cartridge. I've cleaned the print head and run the calibration. What else can I try?

What you see on the screen is quite often not what prints. Sometimes the screen will not show a slight color anomoly. If your pictures were taken with a digital camera, this is quite common. Try the photo enhancement software that came with your camera, or alternately, your printer. They all supply the software because of color corrections that are at times necessary. Sometimes always. Hope that helps. Try the "Auto Correct" function that most photo correction software has. That should help!

    Sorry you didn't think my free advice was helpful. Unfortunately, you are not going to get any advice that is better than what I have given you, as my advice was the only solution to your problem. Your printer is fine. You could always buy a new digital camera though...

Cannon mp560 photos are printing all a pink colour


it sounds as if one or more of the nozzles of your printhead is dried or blocked. I would advise printing printing a test page like this one to clarify the cause.

Assuming one of the colours is missing (i would imagine it would be cyan or yellow) then run some head cleans from your printer software or the printer itself.

When I Print the color Yellow, it's being printed as Pink.


I think you switched the ink stations. Try to switch the yellow and magenta. It also is a possibility that they are refilled with the wrong ink color. Place new ink cartridges and your problem is solved! (It can be that a few prints still show some pink color, because there is a residu of magenta in the yellow printhead)

When I print out picture, pictur came out so many pink stripe across the picture.


There probably is nothing wrong with your PINK ink-cartridge.
It's one (or two) of the other colour ink-cartridges that either are EMPTY or having CLOGGED ink-jet mechanisms.

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.
