Re: Printing incorrect colouring

Plz check the color carts: are they inserted at the right place? If not, change them into the right place. Run the cleaning cycle 4 times to get the wrong ink out of the tube and nozzels.

If you have them at the right places print a test print by pressing ink button and selecting the test print.

Does it look good or do still have the diffrent colors?

Mfc 495cw printer is printing everything pink. I just replaced all the color catridges. how can i fix this?

Try a Nozzel check to see what colours are missing. I would assume that Black, Cyan and Yellow are missing since you are only printing pink. Then do a Printhead Clean to clear the other nozzels.

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.

Printing colour is wrong, colours come out pink. Nozzle check indicates cyan colour is not printing. I have carried out cleaning, deep cleaning. I've cleaned the print head and finally just replaced the...

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

I have a hp 6500. It has started printing pink instead of black.

* printers mix in a bit of "colour" ink when you request BLACK,
so that the colour ink-jets do not dry-out. So, since your BLACK has become EMPTY, all you get is PINK,


* some printers mix colours to produce BLACK-ish colour.
Check that your CYAN and YELLOW ink-cartridges have not gotten to be EMPTY.

Colors are not printing the acutal color

It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

Everytime I change my print to grayscale it prints in pink

Not knowing what sort of printer you have it's hard to pin-point exactly what the issue may be. Taking an educated guess I'm going to guess that you are using an inkjet of some sort. These printers will often use a combination of the cyan, magenta, and yellow inks to make black and shades of gray, and it is possible to get pink instead of gray if the cyan and and yellow are to low to provide a mix to produce gray. Try new ink cartridges to see if that makes any difference...some printers, like DesignJets use individual cartridges for each colour, and most small printers use a combination cartridget that contains cyan, magenta, and yellow ink in different reservoirs in the same tank.

If you are using a printer that doesn't require both the colour cartridge and the black cartridge in to function, try pulling out the colour cartridge and printing in grayscale. Most printer drivers are designed to recognize the fact that the printer only has the black cartridge in it and will automatically make the necessary adjustments.

Installed a new cyan cartridge, but the blues show up as pink..

I can assure you that you got a bad colour ink cartridge. However, you may try this: get a small ply of tissue paper and place over the printing head, with your mouth and some good measure of pressure **** it. Repeat a couple of times and all the three colours: cyan, magenta, and blue will show up; otherwise replace immediately. Good luck
