    I tried new cartridges, blue still not printing.  I have tried several times to clean the cartridges, I have swabbed the heads, even stuck pins in the holes trying to open them up.  Black, Red, Yellow are now working properly.  Blue still remains a problem.

    If you have you may want to go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes
    Right click on your printer and select properties.
    Then go to services and try and clean the cartridges.
    Keep me posted,
    Lee

All color images are printing pink/orange. all inks are only 1% used. the very first photo i printed was beautiful. every photo since has been the pink orange color. even the black is not printing well


This sounds like a blue ink cartridge failure or a clogged blue ink nozzle. If you have cleaned the nozzles, I would try another blue cartridge. if this does not solve the problem more aggressive cleaning may be required. Let me know and we can go throught the process. Thanks.

My HP printer is printing colours in a pink shade, can you please help.


Printers usually have three PRIMARY colours: YELLOW, PINK, BLUE.

So, if you have no YELLOW or BLUE ink, what's left is PINK.

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating

Blues are pink?


either ur blue cartridge is empty or maybe the nozzle of ur blue are clogged .normally the dark blue colour is made up by mixing of blue and pink . because ur nozzles of blue are clogged or maybe the blue is empty it prints only in pink when u command for blues.replace the blue if its empty or clean the nozzles if its clogged.

Printing blue on top of pink


There is a common colour problem with this model printer it is caused by the scanner assembly (there's a fan that blows megenta into the scanner unit).
Solution is to clean the scanner mirrors.

Colors


Did you run a quality test print by pressing ink etc...?

It might be that you have no magenta anymore.

If you can see all the 4 colored blocks on the test sheet, firstly try to copy(!) a picture with pink colors and secondly run a pc print. If there is still no pink and you have it blue or green on the COPY one the scanner needs readjustment (from service personell). If you have trouble with the pc printing, too there might be 
a defective ink cart holder which leaks and mingles the ink (you need a new ink cart holder then)
