Go to this link. Type "print nozzle test" in the search box and click Search. Perform a nozzle test, and if the colors match what are on the instructions, your print head and inks are OK.

(1) If the print head and inks check out OK, type "wrong colors on print" in the search box, and you will see several troubleshooting steps you can try.

(2) If the nozzle test colors are off, confirm that you are using BCI-6 inks for all three colors and the small black tank. You should only have a BCI-3 tank in the large black position. If you have all the correct inks, your machine probably needs to be serviced/ repaired.

When we are printing the printer will not print the right color


try cleaning the heads using the cleaning utiltity on its maintendnce tab, if that doesnt do it, you might have installed non-original laser toner, kindly check also the color settings on what software you use. try also adjusting your screen resolution and color scheme. it could be that what appears on your screen is really not it seems.

Royal blue / navy blue on the screen prints out looking purple


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..
