This generally means that you have a blocked or defective printhead. The printhead is situated under where the ink cartridges go. It can be removed and cleaned but that does not work very often.
First try running the cleaning cycle on your printer a few times. This uses a bit of ink but can work.

Printer is printing with a pink hue


Your printer mixes the 3 colours in the tri-colour ink-cartridge to achieve each colour.

So, printing in 'PINK' suggests that one of the other 2 "primary" colours is OUT-OF-INK.

Replace the ink-cartridge.

Too much ink


Hi, sounds like the colours are mixing because of the overfill. You can try this , but may take a while.
Get some tissues (around 6) fold them in half and put on the table. Keep dabbing your ink cartridge on the tissues in different places until you can see the 3 different colours clearly. This can take a while, but generally does work...
