Have put new cartridges in and only prints yellow lines


Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.

Printing wrong color


Hi there,

You must do a deep printer head cleaning on your unit, it could be clogged and dirty and that because it will not produce or print out a proper color.

Let me know here again.

All of our photos end with a magenta to purplish hue. We are using Canon inks, and followed standard trouble-shooting procedures; checked proper placement, printer alignment, deep cleaning. We are also...


Print a "test" page:

<HTML><BODY>
<FONT COLOR="#FF0000"> RED TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#00FF00"> GREEN TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#0000FF"> BLUE TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#FFFF00"> MIX RED & GREEN INK </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#FF00FF"> MIX RED & BLUE INK </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#00FFFF"> MIX GREEN & BLUE INK </FONT><HR>
</BODY>
</HTML>

and see if the printed colors are "true" to what you see on the computer-screen.

Ink not printing the same image quality that is on computer


Issue When printing directly from a memory card, the printouts have an abnormally high red tone.
NOTE: This does not affect the prints that were originally sent from the computer. Solution Press the Photo Fix button to turn off the Photo Fix feature before printing from a memory card. Cause The Photo Fix feature was originally designed to reduce/enhance printed pictures by making colors more vibrant. However, it can also have a side-effect to make some prints have more red tone than desired. In the HP Photosmart D7100 series printer, this feature is “ON” by default.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Won't print black and white, looks blue


Hi

HP uses a system for black that prints a base ie: Cyan / *blue then overprints it with black...

Sounds like you are either out of black or you have an ink clog?

If so... you need to use a print head cleaner like Magic Inkjet Flush you can get a kit on Ebay.

Good Luck!
