Re: color not print

Did you run a quality test print? Are all 4 color blocks in a pretty good condition or do you have other colors than the separat 4 ones?

If the colors are mingled you need a new cart holder because the bottom which consists of a foil is leaking and mingles the ink. The cart holder cant be fixed.

Why is my printer printing out only green on my photos?

Check your printer cartridge. Ideally, there will be one for black and three for the colors; however, some printers only have 1 for color. If that's the case, then probably all the color ink except for green is gone from the printer cartridge. If so, you are going to need to buy a new color ink cartridge.

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!

Many a times the cartridges get empty.There is ink in the cartridges,this ink gets over or many a times dried up.Remove the cartridges and see.There will be a steel color nozzle at the base of cartridge,from where the ink comes out.Touch the tissue paper to that base and see,if there is ink coming out.Actually the ink should come out.There will be two cartridges in the printer.One black and one tri-color.On black cartridge when you touch the tissue paper you will get black ink on tissue.On tri-color cartridge when you touch tissue on its base you will get three colors,that are yellow--- blue and pink.( In printer language its called cyan--- yellow---magenta color).If there is ink in the cartridge then it should print,If you have replace the cartridge,then on its base there is a blue color tape.That tape has to be removed from its base.If the tape is not removed the cartridge will not print.-------- One more thing.Before doing any thing.Just do a self test and see if the cartridges are working. The procedure of self test is as follows:--- " 1) Turn the printer on.2) The power on green light should be steady green,not blinking green. 3) When its steady green at that time.Press the cancel and color button both together. 4) By doing this the green light will flash,and printer will take the paper. 5) On that paper the self test will get printed.But if the printer takes the paper and it comes out empty /blank then its cartridge fault.But if the self test is getting printed,then yes its confirmed that there is communication fault between printer and computer.In this case,replace the usb wire.Try new brand usb wire and see if that is helping.One more thing.When you install the printer driver.At that time never keep the usb wire connected between printer and computer.Only keep one side of usb connected to computer tower.In between the installation procedure.The message will come up on your computer screen" this message reads,connect the usb wire to printer.At that time connect the usb wire".As you connect the usb wire the message will come up on your computer screen.The printer is detected.If this message comes up then only your printer will work.If this message does not comes then,there is any of the three things faulty,that is usb wire,the usb port on printer side or usb port on computer side.If usb wire is faulty you can replace this wire with new and check.Its not a costly wire.But if any of the ports are faulty,then this ports are internally soldered on the main board.This ports needs to be re-soldered.This can be done by any printer/computer repair tech.Its hardly a 10 minute job to re-solder loose usb port. ------------- Try this troubleshooting procedure.This will help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Your problem is not of specially cartrigde but what you need is a special Paper which is made to print Photos and other colour full pictures. If you see is not this problem then there is chance that your cartridge is leaking from blue color point as there are three inks in color cartridge Red,Blue and yellow , than you need to replace you colou cartridge with new one .

Prints grey not black

I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.
