Question about Printers & Copiers
My printer has started to print too much red particularly the skin tones are very pink.I use 3rd party inks which were ok and I've tried different ones since the problem started. The only thing I've changed is my computer which now has vista. There was no updated driver as it was "in the box". Do I need to change any settings or profiles?
Try going to the Color Management section, under Hardware in teh Control Panel.
On the devices tab, select the printer, tick the check box, and select 'Automatic' for Profile Selection.

Good question - it sounds like there are two possibilities:
1 - (and most likely), the other colors are low on your color cartridges, so it is printing out of balance. Can you check the ink balance and see what you have left? replacing the color cartridge will prob help a great deal.
2 - Check the properties on your printer, and see if something got tweaked with the Vista installation. Oftentimes, a new software installation will bump previous settings. You can often change many of the printer settings to a custom print, which might work much better for you.
