You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

Have changed cyan and magenta inks which it asked me to do and now when i print a picture or anything for that matter there is a pink hue all over the page!! jane


Hi Jane,
Try to do few times the deep head cleaning, under printer properties on PC.
Are you using genuine or remanufactured ink tanks?
It also could be fault in ink tanks, especially if they are not genuine.
Also maybe its fault in purge unit and head.

Best would be to try with new oem inks, at least with one.

Hope that helped!

My printer is printing in purple both pictures and text.


Most likely you need to do a deep cleaning of the print head nozzles. Found the following info on ehow.com. It's not your exact model but may lead you in the right direction.
Click on "File" and then "Print" if your printer is an HP 5420v or a 5440 or if it is a 5490 series. A print dialog Box will open. Click on "Properties" and then select the "Service" tab. Open the printer toolbox by clicking on "Service this device." When the "Service" tab appears, click on "Clean the print cartridge." A series of easy-to-follow instructions will appear. You will be allowed up to three levels of cleaning if your print head requires it. Be prepared for your printer to automatically print a test page after each cleaning level--if a test page looks O.K., you can cancel further cleaning.
When this happen to me I did a deep cleaning and it cleared right up.

Printing in wrong colors


You need to go to the maintenance tab on your printer properties and deep clean the head. If that fails, remove the print cartridges and poor some rubbing alcohol on the print head enough to wet it, replace cartridges and deep clean again, if that fails you may need a new print head or replace the printer, cost dependent.
