Most cauuses to this is dirty or failing print head.

Many people would say it was the sponge that is doing that but let me tell you if it was a full sponge you would not even see that color tint. Its the print head that is not mixing correctly due to being dirty or corrosive. Do you use refilled ink cartridges? If so you answer is iron clad your print head will need to be replaced and you need to put a stop to the refilled oslution, if not then the print head got dirty or is defective.

1. print head cleaner
2. new print head.

thanks hope this does help please do be considerate and rate and leave feedback for your free answer.

When I print the picture has a purple haze in it ?


If you are using re-manufactured ink tanks, that would explain it, a mi-matched ink tank. To clarify the ink colour is not quite right.

If genuine ink tanks (Recommended) then maybe try different paper. If using photo paper you should be using compatible / genuine paper as the different chemicals react can give this problem.

If using fax / standard paper then could be print head fault....normally get an error code.

Picture prints have no yellow, purple tint


I've solved this with multiple head cleaning. I cleaned the print heads 7 or 8 times and it's working ok again now.

To clean your print heads do the following:

  1. On your computer, start the KODAK AiO Home Center.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.
hope this helps

Printing in Red Tint


Your machine may have a function to my LEXMARK. At LEXMARK Solution Center I select MAINTENANCE. Here there is a maintenance tool to "clean to fix horizontal stripes". When selected, it cleans and tests the nozzles while printing a test page. It even has a CLEAN AGAIN button.

Your machine should have a similar function. Hope this helps.

Reddish tint on all pictires printed on my 4180. Same pictures prin perfectly on hp 7260.


You are experiencing a printer cartridge problem. Sounds like some of the colors in the print cartidge have run out, either that or the nozzles are clogged. Run a nozzle check from the printer software, if it does not fix, try a new color cartridge.

Let me know how it works out for you.

LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode


Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.
