Green Tint Over Entire Printed Picture

There's a green tint over the entire printed picture. I've changed the cartridge and tried again, but it still has a green tint over the color picture.

    Same problem, I clean the nozzels and the test page is fine. Everything I print looks like you are looking through night vision goggles !

    I think I have the same problem. My printer does not print red for some reason, an this causes me to have the green tint. I used this printer maybe 20 time since brand new and HP support was WORTHLESS and told me to buy a new printer. It won;t be HP.

I had a very similar problem and found out that the problem was the quality of paper I was using. Remember, a photo printer is expecting high quality results. Cheap, low quality paper will not accept the ink as well as higher quality paper. I can't guarantee this will solve your problem but I have not had any green tints since switching to a higher quality photo paper.

Yellow ink doesn't print from the cartridge.


Try to change ink jet cartridge with a new one from hp and then blow off the contacts with compressed air. Make sure the tape is removed from the nozzles of the ink jet cartridge before installation.

Good luck on this repair.

R1900 adds blue-green tint to my photo prints


Epson doesn't like Generic Cartridges.

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Pictures coming out green


On a picture that you have printed, when you see an area of green, what color should it be? You probably have reduced flow of one of the "balancing" colors. Blue, Yellow and Red add up to Black. If your picture is supposed to be almost black and you don't have enough red, the color will pull toward the blue and yellow, giving it a green tint.

Every picture has a green tint


The magenta ink is not working, clean your print head through the software in your preferences and see what happens, If your pictures show no sign of improvement, clean a second time. If still no improvement, than either your magenta ink is empty or faulty or the print head is faulty. As it is a HP, both the head and cartridge are one in the same, so replace the colour cartridge and you should fins your pictures will be perfect again.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Printing in green


Sounds as if one or more colors is out/dry in the ink cartridge. Have you tried a new cartridge or cartridges?
