    Thank you! Any idea how I would check that? This is a big dark area for me.

    Great, I'll go check it out, thanks! I have several other printers in the office I could link to if it's not compatible.

Ahem...well..this has a lot to do with the rgb to cmyk issues on the transforms. You may need to see if the Photosmart is compatible with the Adobe Photoshop C2 transforms..

Why is this EPSON STYLUS C88+ "Dura Brite Ultra" printer printing the wrong colors?


You have a corrupt or incorrect printer driver. Completely remove all references to the current driver from the computer. Un installing is not enough as the registry references remain. Then install the driver(s) again.

My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

We have a sharp mx3501n printer. Whenever I print from Photoshop CS2 the prints are horrible. Any suggestions for color profiles/settings that might make this better. Should I be using a CMYK file in...


Definately CMYK so you can see which colors are out of gamut. If copies are lousy too, then you might have old supplies in the machine. In service sim mode (type # * C *) go to 64-5 and print the test charts directly from the print engine. You should get one greyscale and one color page. If those look bad, then you need a supply change (drum, developer, or belts). In the driver under Printing preferences you have the option to set color schemes until you find one that works. If you still have trouble, get a new driver from www.sharpusa.com, past that a firmware flash may be necessary.

Since it's a brand new printer it's probably not the printer, but your set up . Not knowing what program you are printing from, I can't advise beyond that 1) check the reference for the program you are printing from about setting up your color to be compatible with your printer (look under color management). Usually it has to do with your file's color profile matching the printer profile.

Green tint when printing


Hi, did you tried to calibrate your colors but on the printer? The printer decides which color it's gonna print, regardless to the color on the screen. He's gonna try most of the time to print the closest color he can make. We call this WYSINWYG. What You See Is Not What You Get. You should have a tool with the HP printing software. Otherwise i guess you can print a test page to check the colors. Make sure each color Cyan/magenta/yellow and black print corectly on the test page. Usally on HP printers you have to hold the Go button 5-10 sec and it's gonna print the test page but refer to your manual if you are not sure how to do this. Could also be a problem with your print heads, check if there is a procedure in the manual to clean those.

Printer is printing wrong colors


Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.

Link to the manual - Aligning print cartridges is on Page 70.

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors


Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

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!

Brother MFC-420N : Color Problems


You need to start the ink cartridge changing procedure over. Try unplugging the machine for a few minutes.(from the wall and the computer) Then try the ink change over...If that doesn't work don't waste time. Download and install the latest drivers for your printer. Uninstall then reinstall with newer drivers. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
