Colors do not print right. We have tried to align, calibrate, and clean the heads, and the colors went from too much purple, to too much magenta

    Hi there, The problem may lie with faulty printer cartridges. Before taking the printer to be repaired or disposing of it in favor of a nice new one, get some new print cartridges and try the printer with those. If this fails you may need to have it tested by a PC Technician. Hope this helps :)

This would need a print head replacement kit there around $40 bucks from the mnaufacture. The issue here is the mix of the colors and this is caused by the print head.

Color doesn't look like what is on computer screen... printing from InDesign and Photoshop... same results from each program.


first of all, your screen is probably not correctly calibrated to show the colors right. Same goes for your copier, try calibrating the colors. Press the menu button (it's a button next to the screen, looks like a star with a head around it)

- Then press Adjustments/Cleaning
- Auto Gradation Adjustment
- Full adjust
- Print page 1
- Put the paper on the copyglass, with the black toner facing the back of the machine.
- Press Scan
- Then Print page 2
- Scan page 2
- Print page 3
- Scan page 3.

Now the colors are calibrated. If it still doesn't match, try calibrating your computers screen so you can see the real colors.

HP Photosmart 3210xi - some colors (magentas) will not print


Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.

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.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

7310 won't print magenta


Either you are out of magenta ink or your cartridge is dirty. Just because you've run a cleaning job doesn't mean the printer will fix the problem. The best thing to do is take your cartridge out and use a paper towel to gently clean the head (where the ink comes out). Once you wipe away the gunk you should still get the three colors on each pass of the paper towel over the head. If you only get two colors (yellow and cyan) then your magenta is empty or dried out (happens with ink cartridges used past their expiration date). The only thing you can do then is get a new in cartridge.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
