Question about HP Digital Copier Printer 610 All-In-One InkJet

1 Answer

HP digital copier 610

We've installed a brand new printer cartridge and the picture quality is terrible. A color photo printed out as washed out gray tones with red stripes evenly spaced the length of the page.

The printer has been around longer than any of the employees and we do not have a manual.

Is there some way to clean the printer heads? If so, please describe the process.

I am printing exterior photos of a buildiing on regular paper for test only. The color is printing out with a green tinge. What is happening?


Not using genuine HP cartridges could be one reason. Low ink cartridges could cause not enough ink to be used to make a certain shade of gray or black and thus causing the green tinge. Also if you are selecting photo quality printing then you need to use photo paper. The printer drivers tell the printer different commands depending on what kind of paper you tell it you are using. Good luck!

Color in printed pictures is terrible! All HP


try going into your printers properties and look for a print quality tab. One of the tabs will allow you to change your print style on pictures. Or the HP software that came with the printer should allow you to modify the print quality.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.

How can I print a color picture without using a black catridge?


Black ink is an essential part of the printing process. The black color is only made by the black cartridge, the color cartridge does make "black".
One or more optional photo cartridges may be available, depending on your printer model.
  • Use the photo cartridge with a tri-color cartridge for best-quality color photos and graphics, and sepia or antique photos.
  • Choose a gray photo cartridge to print black and white photos with truer grays and richer blacks.

When I want to print using the photo or black ink cartridges, my printer uses the tricolour cartridge. If I take the tri colour cartridge out, the printer alerts that there is a cartridge missing and still...


If what you are trying to print is a black in white image then you cant print that when you dont have the other colors installed. The reason is because your image/photo has shades of gray, and for the printer to produce gray, it needs the other colors as well. It needs colors to get the light black or gray shades of the photo....

If however, you are trying to print text only, the printer should be using the black cartridge and not the other colors... I believe that there should be an option in the printers preferences to select black ink only... look for it under advance tab...

hope this helps
