This is kind of hard to diagnose with just what you list. However there are a few things you can do to test it further. What I usually do is open up Microsoft paint (start-all programs-accessories- the click on paint) Then make a small box and print the 3 primary colors plus black (red, blue, yellow) see if all three colors print. My guess is only one will print (blue) if this is the case then the ink cartridge is most likely dried up or defective. Also if you have not printed something in a very long time this can also cause the cartridge to dry up. Again this is based on a guess that I think your cartridge might be dried up. However it can be a number of other items. Also some printers have there own test pages you can run that can also tell you what colors are working and what colors are not. Thanks again Hope this helps you out a little bit. Steven.
You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.
On a picture that you have printed, when you see an area of green, what color should it be? You probably have reduced flow of one of the "balancing" colors. Blue, Yellow and Red add up to Black. If your picture is supposed to be almost black and you don't have enough red, the color will pull toward the blue and yellow, giving it a green tint.
You have to disassemble the printer and clean the prisms inside the black box within the printer. The prism for the red and yellow colors are near the bottom and face up, so they easily collect dust buildup, thereby causing weak or striped printing of these colors.
if your prints are coming out with blue green tint, more than likely, the magenta (pink) is missing from your calibration page. Print out a calibration sheet, you should have black, yellow, blue, and magenta. If one of these colors is missing, your printhead is clogged. You need a new one. Call Kodak Tech Support.
