Color is way off from photo I've taken

What gets printed has blue overtones and doesn't look anything like the photo I took and what I see on my screen.  Any ideas?

What I have looked at online could be the idea of maybe your printer nozzle in cloggged for that colour and is over compensating with another colour. Do a colour test and see if this is true. Then try to adjust the other colours to match what you would like printed.

300 dpi nikon coolpix s51


DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and has absolutely no meaning to the camera. It has meaning only when you output the photo to a printer or screen.

Let's say you took a photo that's 3000 pixels on the long side. If you then make a 4x6 print, you're putting 3000 pixels into six inches so you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make an 8x10 print, you're putting 3000 pixels into ten inches so you're printing at 300 dpi. Either way, you're printing the exact same picture, only at different dpi settings.

The camera has to put something into the dpi field, so it defaults to 72 which is often used for computer screens. Just about any program you use to print your photos can change this number without affecting anything else.

Hello,
one idea is that you rouined printhead with tap water and second idea is to buy new print head or printer.
Note: If you want to replace ink head, be sure to replace purge unit and ink absorber also.

33 mm camera photos develop with pinkish green overtone


Your film may have gotten hot or has passed the expiration date. If the tint is splotchy, there could be a light leak, either in the camera or the film cassette after you take it out of the camera. If all your photos were taken indoors under incandescent light, they will also be tinted reddish.

Draining the ink!


Printing photos with Epson drains the cartridges alot faster than printing documents. The dpi settings for photos are much higher to get the photo quality. Blue is a base color that helps to mix to create some of the colors in the photos so this is normal with the Epson brand. Hope this helps.

Photo ink cartridge stuck


I had the same issue. Don't try to force the cartridge out though. After being stuck to the paper, tearing the remainder of the film won't get all of it out of the cartridge. You'll need to print a 'dummy' page to get the last bit to be pulled out and afterwards the printer will automatically release the cartridge allowing it to be pulled out normally.

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
