HP 5150 Photo Printing Problem

All my photos come out with a very blue-ish hue. I installled a new tri-color cartridge, the photo carttridge is 1/2 full (but about 2-years old, I kept in in one of the mounting clips when idle to keep from drying out)

Previously, my photos have looked very nice.

I have gone through all the utilities fixes including the color calibration. None of the rectangular shape matched the background well at all.

I get about the same results with premium or everyday photo paper. I believe I'm setting these up properly before I print.

Stop me before I spend another $30 on a new photo cartridge!

Thanks

    Only the blue and black ink came out. The red did not absorb on to the tissue.

Printer is printing yellow instead of red and colour is fade


The magenta has run out (red).
Replace the HP 22 tri-color cartridge.
It probably has yellow and cyan (blue) left in it, and the black is most likely working as well, but if any of the 3 colors in the tricolor cartridge run out, the whole cartridge must be replaced.
For instance, if I printed my vacation photos and there was a lot of water and blue sky in all of them, the cyan might run out long before the cartridge life expectancy.
Also, don't forget that cartridges are rated in pages printed at 5% coverage.
Since a photo is about 25% of a full page, a photo printed at full bleed (edge to edge) will only yield 32 4 X 6 inch photos from a cartridge rated at 160 pages (5X expected coverage = 1/5 the prints)

I have new photo (58) and color (57) carts and when I print wallet size (9 pics per 8.5x11 photo paper) the first 3 print true color and the last 6 are blue. I have cleaned the rollers and still do not...


hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

Everything's magenta!



Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.

HP Deskjet F2100 All-in-one has two slots for printer cartidges. Which of these two slots is meant for photo cartidge?


The photo cartridge replaces the black cartridge. It is used along with the color cartridge to provide better photo's.

The photo cartridge contains photo black, light cyan and light magenta while the color cartridge provides cyan, magenta and yellow. Both photo and color cartridges need to be installed and working for proper photo printing.

HP 7550 PhotoSmart Printer prints photos with an unpleasant green hue.


If it's a B&W or sepia photo, and you wanted to print B&W or grayscale anyway, pull the color cartridge (assuming a 2 cartridge system). I did that with my HP DJ 5440 and it works perfectly.

Photo ink 58 do i put it on the right side and what other ink cartridge do i need to use


Normally, you keep the regular tri-color cartridge in the place it already was.. You should be taking the black cartridge OUT and putting the 58 Photo cartridge in...

FYI.. the 58 photo cartridge provides you with LIGHT magenta, LIGHT Cyan and a PHOTO Black -- which are supposed to give you truer tones and 'half-tones' for shades and nuances in color (like different grades of blue in the sky). The Photo black helps the photo not look "green" on black areas when there is a reflection on the photo... (with regular ink, when you get a reflection off of the shiny paper you often see a green-ish like color and it looks rather odd... the photo black stops that.)

Too much green


It is unlikely that the sudden appearance of a green hue is due to the printhead or drivers going belly up. If the images on photo paper are OK when using the plain paper setting but have a severe green/blue hue when using the higher photo settings it is likely that the photocyan cartridge has been contaminated with cyan ink. Throw the contaminated PCyan cartridge away and fit a guaranteed photocyan cartridge (OEM or compat). Carry out a deep clean and run several plain papers through on a high photo setting. The green hue will gradually disappear.
