How can I get my printer to print in color rather than brown? more info


Hi Harold
I have a feeling that this is a problem that you will only be able to resolve by changing the colour cartridge for a new one and then doing multiple head cleaning operations.
It sounds as if the three tanks in the colour cartridge have become severely contaminated with ink from the others, thus giving this overall brown colour on the page, whichever colour the computer tells the printer to print.
To check this you may be able to use something like a Word document and using the font properties, change the colour of the font on the screen for a number of different lines (eg one line - bright yellow, another - bright red, a third - bright blue, a fourth - black) print this out and see what colours you get.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Colors not matching computer


It is possible your colour cartridge has cross contaminated the ink reservoirs. To check this take the colour cartridge out and turn it over to see the coloured pads. They should look red, dark blue, and orange ( the colours are actually Magenta, Cyan, and Yellow, but are concentrated). If any of the pads are pale or particularly green - change the cartridge.
If the colours look alright, your issue is probably that your monitor makes colour by emitting light frequencies so is bright, printed images make colour by absorbing light frequencies so will always be darker. There is always the issue of course that your monitor also has a colour "temperature" bias. Photo pros calibrate their monitors and printers to match.

Not good colour consistency over an A4 page


I suggest you find a way to align the cartridge. If it contains alignment utility it should give you a better printout. Also check if you have enough ink on your cartridge. Uneven colour usually is due to lack of ink in the cartridge.

Wont print photos the right colour


There should be something like a printer properties menu. Find it and adjust the colour controls to manual and reduce the magenta settings etc. Also make certain you have the right type of paper selected on your printer, to the one you are using.

I had this problem, but only when I used "Compatible" Toners. I do not have this problem when using "Original"s. Perhaps you are using Compatible Toners?

Won't print in color. Looks like a negative


Try going to printer settings either via 'file' 'print' or 'start' 'control panel' 'printers'
some printers have settings colour - text - photo - gray scale - chrome - negative etc Click on the one you need & 'save'
Alternatively, if the print has some colour but lacks others you may be out of ink/toner of the missing colour[s]

Colour comes out 'faded' with purple colouration when photos should be bright and clear strong colours . cartridges not empty.


Sounds like a bad print head or bad cartridge. If you bought refilled cartridges, i would suspect that as the culprit first.

Forget the answer above, this printer is a laser jet and dipping anything in water will certainly stop it working.
