When printing from a screen, wrong colors are deposited on the document. For example, blue on the screen shows up as pink on the paper, and green on the screen shows up as yellow on the paper.

The problem with your printer is a lack of one of the colors which make up the combination of colors mixed together to produce the needed colors. Pull out the ink cartridges in your printer and find out which one is short. Usually these printers use a combination of cartridges better still to ensure best output just replace all the cartridges inside the printer and this will make sure your colors come out perfectly. Printers mix a combination of colors to get the specific color which is wanted. Blue will show as pink if there is no black to deepen it slightly just as green will be yellow if there is no black to deepen it also.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a primera signature 4 ink jet CD printer. It will not print and the left green light on top is flashing very fast.


The printer lighting symbol indicators are messages of replaceable resources either paper or ink. usually the printer is expected to perform until a fault displays a logo either green for functionality, pink of resources shortage, and red for power resources insufficiency. Checking on the printer compartments to ascertian the conditions or replaceabel resources paper, ink, or jams due to paper over loads. Computer messages with printers would display the fault. For example, a printer message on the computer either as print job request unsuccessful or requirng software would be observable from the computer screen.

Printer is printing wrong colors


Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.

Link to the manual - Aligning print cartridges is on Page 70.

Will not print blue


Try this I triedi in my printer cartridge which was stuck for a while and only prints in red other colors dont. First you remove the cartridges get a clean dry tissue / towel paper and smudge the cartridge printing heads to the tissue it should give all the colors if not the ones that dont may have hardened. Get warm water (Clean) in a bowel and submerge the printing heads on the water not the entire cartridge to dissolve any deposits then try them again. Hope it works it worked on mine.
