It is possible you're black cartridge is too low on ink & needs replaced. If you're black ink cartridge is new, there could be small ammounts of sticky tape left over the contacts of the ink cartridge. Please clean the ink cartridge's copper contacts (side only, not the bottom of the ink cartridge), with a cotton swab & a little alcohol. Since the ink cartridge is removed clean copper contacts inside the carriage holder as well. Allow time for the alcohol to dry. All most every printer installs software that monitors ink level's. To check you're printer for this. Click the start button, slide up to & click Printers and faxs. The printer and fax window will open. You're default printer will have a little check mark next to it. Right click once on that printer name, another little pop-up window will open, slide to & left click on properties.
You're printer (It's name) will open. Near the bottom click on Printing Preferences. Another window will open. Click the Services tab. Than click Service this device. You should be able to see the ink levels.

Have more questions? Please feel free to ask.
Hope this has helped.
Luck!
Mike

My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

Hp printer 7450 won't print colored text from a word document. test page shows colors on the windows logo flag. changed the ink cartridge....color one that is....no help i will try to print something else...


It may be set for grayscale (black and white) in the print properties. Go into the print properties in Word and look for a color or black and white setting, either under Color Management or Advanced. Set it for color, and then print your color document.

Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

Just replaced all three color toners, but printer prints in black and white, no error message and suppliers status report shows all color cartridges are 100%


You may need to do print test cleaning and aligning the printer, check the print setup, ensure the printer print specification is not black/white, also please reset the printer, by powering down, and up after 2minutes

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Color print qualities issues


Perhaps you've tried, but check to see if your printer is printing color using the PS driver or the PCL driver. If you are using the PS driver the colors will not print correctly, but this is the best mode to print black and white since it will save your drum life and print faster.

Reddish tint on all pictires printed on my 4180. Same pictures prin perfectly on hp 7260.


You are experiencing a printer cartridge problem. Sounds like some of the colors in the print cartidge have run out, either that or the nozzles are clogged. Run a nozzle check from the printer software, if it does not fix, try a new color cartridge.

Let me know how it works out for you.
