Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My other half is extremely un-techie and I'm not a whole lot better. She has had problems with the printer for a couple years, but has been limping along. The color is really wacked. I did a few things (looked online and tried some suggestions) but never really fixed it. She bought a new color cartridge AGAIN (this is like the 4th one) and I also uninstalled and reinstalled the driver/software for the printer. The automatic test page printed beautifully in all the four colors. I then opened a saved greeting card to print as a test. The first thing is said is that the ink cartridge is low, which it is NOT. It is brand new - and this is what we went through before. I printed the card and the color was way off - but the test page was perfect. I can't tell you what I did last time, it's been many months since I tried to fix it (she just keeps using mine instead) probably nearly a year. We have tried alignment, cleaning, manual cleaning, you name it. HELP!
Sounds annoying. :>)
Two ideas come to mind. First is that some HP printers have software installed for controlling the colour output for all programs, or only some programs, often called COLOR PROFILES or something similar. Open up the printer's PROPERTIES and then dig through the ADVANCED settings to try to find any reference to colour profiles and then reset them all to the default. Also dig through your machine's software and try to find any HP programs that might think they have a say in how things are printed, especially programs running all the time from the system tray in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
Or, it might be a few programs who are not doing colour output properly. When you print from a web site page, are the colours any closer?
I'm sure you've already done this, but download the latest drivers from the HP web site and install them, making sure they are for exactly your model.

Theres a pretty sure bet when the fuel light comes on in your car, fuel will fix it,
its a bit like that these cartridges fixs most things expesally if you have never changed it in a year and a half,
Exp date is shelf life,
End life of cart. is out of ink or error,
Machine uses colour ink when cleaning regardless if you use it or not that just uses more
With all that being said I've also had these with cartridge housing problems causing the fault vay rarely
And then if you look at prices of new inkjets with a years warranty and new inks against the just the price of both your inks then I think you may Buy another.!
If you get 3 years out of a inkjet your doin extremly well, machines dont last and arnt meant too!
If you rarely do colour I would tell you to look at a B/W Laser printer instead, inkjets are expensive to run, cheap to buy fail a lot
Laser machines run so so so much cheaper like 2cent compared to 20c a sheet, they are reliable, if you really need a colour print go to print shop and receive reletavely cheap quality colour prints or use a friends and let them have the problem of supporting an inkjet.
Laser toner based machines are now as cheap as inkjets but better except they dont do colour.
