So, your "blue" and "yellow" ink-cartridges are OK, and are mixing to produce "green".

But, either your "red" ink-cartridge is empty, or the ink-jets that shoot that colour onto the paper are BLOCKED.

Run a print-head-cleaning-cycle, using the HP Support Tools that were installed from the HP CD-ROM, and then, if necessary, replace/refill the "red" cartridge.

Make sure the print driver settings say it is printing the right size of your paper. It may have paper blocking a sensor or the sensor is bad.

Try checking you color settings on printer and computer. Also, check your ink cartridge and it's date of manufacture. Sometimes old cartridges behave like that.

That is absolutely not true. The printer you have uses integrated print head cartridges. This means every time you replace the ink cartridges you are replacing the print heads. Throw out the dried up ink cartridges and buy new ones. Your printer takes the HP 74 black and HP 75 color cartridges. There are XL versions of these cartridges that hold more ink and are a better value.

When you go to print check to see in your print preferences settings to see if color or black and white is checked. Could also be the specific program's print options you are using to print the pages.
