I'm just guessing here based on my experience with the similar problem with HP Color printers - Either you have a problem with the Magenta toner cartridge so to find out you have to change it with a brand new or the problem is that the mirrors and lenses got dirty - to fix this you have to disassemble the hall whole printer to be able to clean the mirrors and lenses but i suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop or somebody else with experience cause it's very easy to do more damage than good.Let me know what happens - i' m curious.

It could be a problem with the magenta or cyan cartridge as it might be leaking.
Open the printer ,remove the cartridges and make sure it's not dirty.
you can clean with a vacuum cleaner or damnp cloth(not too damp).
If that doesnt solve it then replace the cartridge/s.

Printer is printing with a pink hue


Your printer mixes the 3 colours in the tri-colour ink-cartridge to achieve each colour.

So, printing in 'PINK' suggests that one of the other 2 "primary" colours is OUT-OF-INK.

Replace the ink-cartridge.

The laptop starts up with a pink hue


Make sure the LCD is completely attached to the system board. I've had them come partially out and cause this. If this doesn't help, your LCD and/or inverter could be going bad.

Everything's magenta!



Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.
