The printer might need a cleaning of the heads. Or you may be out of the right color ink. Look in the maintenance section a printer properties that may tell you what the level is for all the cartridges.

Hello Charles! Welcome to FixYa!

Actually as you told that you have replaced ink cartridge sometimes ago so with the new ink the effect of primary colors is more and when you print on the high quality the effect of primary color is more.
If you are printing the photos with software the try to print it on medium quality, even on low quality, The result will be fine. You can change the setting of printing in any software. After a time while when the ink will be used the result will automatically fine even on High quality.

I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

Color in printed pictures is terrible! All HP

try going into your printers properties and look for a print quality tab. One of the tabs will allow you to change your print style on pictures. Or the HP software that came with the printer should allow you to modify the print quality.

Poor color quality (Canon Pixma pro 9500)

recalibrate the printhead, clean the printhead. In the printer driver you need to select the right paper.

I have just found a solution on the hp support forum that says:-

Common problem of scanner optics dusted over requiring removing the laser/scanner, uncovering and cleaning mirrors and lenses. See the attached procedure. Takes about an hour, no parts.

On the second message on the following link you will see an attachment that has instructions for the above.

Pictures printing with stripes of color in some programs but not all programs.

Try new injet cartidges. If your printer has separate head and ink combo, replace the jets. The high quality mode operates the piezo jets at full power and lower setting can cause jets not to open as far. On some preinters, your particalar problem can be the result of too thin paper and the economy setting being used. Use 18lb or 20lb paper and see if it still does it on normal print mode.

Over saturated prints

If this is a new printer then take it back to the store where you purchased it and have it exchanged. Epson Printers are the best printers on the market in my humble opinion.

HP Color Laserjet 3500 Problem

If you are sure the diagnostics show the colours correctly, one thing I would look at is to see if it had a colour profile set up for it.Don't know whether this printer normally has, if it has not I would suggest reinstalling the driver. To check - Start/Printers & Faxes/ Rt click on printer then properties, look under Colour management tab. Pete
