This is a widespread problem do a google caused by the printer not printing exactly what the monitor is displaying.when using glossy or photo paper. if you know what you are doing with color management then have a play. my solution? i used photoshop to adjust the color balance of my pic to bias towards cyan from green and away from blue and save as a copy and the image looks slightly too red on the monitor. but it prints out exactly as the master image.
not a proper solution but i havent seen any other on the net so far.
but print it out

SOURCE: photos print green

In the printer settings choose the type of paper, card, or the various photo papers that are listed. This must be selected to get the best quality for each project you are doing weather it is just normal text or quality photos, the both require different print settings. Usually by using the automatic setting does handle most settings but dont bank on it.

You need to set the paper type in the printer settings before printing

start -> control panel -> printers -> right click on your priter and select properties. there you will find the settings, look around there is a page on paper settings.

I am printing exterior photos of a buildiing on regular paper for test only. The color is printing out with a green tinge. What is happening?


Not using genuine HP cartridges could be one reason. Low ink cartridges could cause not enough ink to be used to make a certain shade of gray or black and thus causing the green tinge. Also if you are selecting photo quality printing then you need to use photo paper. The printer drivers tell the printer different commands depending on what kind of paper you tell it you are using. Good luck!

Check to make sure all of your contacts are clean. The part where the cartridge meets the printer. Also check to make sure you have it set in the printer properties for photo quality paper. If this still doesn't work, I would suggest trying a different brand of paper, it may be the problem with the paper manufacturer.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.
