I have a problem that has developed and ruined many photo ops. For some reason many pictures have color over satuation, (greens, reds and blues) making it look unnatural. I first noticed the problem about 6 months ago when some of the pictures blue offset from the pictures. Now some of the pictures show green in sunlight. I've tried resetting the white balance, but nothing seems to help.

If the message Change Imaging Unit Magenta displayed refer to imaging unit with contents a developer.The Imaging unit life is 80.000 copies. The imaging units located after front door when is located the waste toner box. If the message M toner end/change the M toner displayed refer to toner cartridge The toner cartridge life 15.000 copies 5% saturation.In full color mode the color saturation is 80% and the color toner life is 6.000-8.000 copies. I think your problems is a toner not the developer.
What program are you using when you "develop" these pictures. I would recommend paint shop pro for all your photo/image editing needs. Once I have more information I can assist you further so please don't reject my help. Thanks, Lee
Image quality using default factory settings is awful. Colors are
over-blown, faces are washed-out, and highlights are cropped. People on
the internet compained that there is no brightness control -- there
is..but its hidden in a menu. Press the Setup button on the remote and
move to the "System" settings. I've found these settings produce a
fairly correct balance of color, detail, and brightness: * Brightness=5 * Contrast=1 * Saturation=2
It is not at all unusual for colors to appear different when printing on differing paper types. Your problem would appear to be an over saturation effect which alters the purity of the color tones. I'd suggest that you refer to information found under the heading "Change the saturation, brightness, or color tone" found on page 58 of the online user manual for your printer which is found at the following link: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01552104
You can't. The FE-280 always captures in color. You can convert to black&white using just about any photo editing program on the computer, and this is the recommended procedure, as you have more control over saturation, brightness, etc. And, in the event a UFO lands and Bigfoot steps out of it, you'll have color pictures to sell :-)
If yor printer soaks plain paper with too much ink, go to printer properties and change the media type to plain paper, and the print quality to Standard or even Draft.
If however you want to print pictures on photo paper, and they are too dark/saturated, you need to adjust the photos using some picture edit/touchup application - there are plenty of them available free online, or on computer magazine CDs etc.
This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.
Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.
2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.
