Question about HP OfficeJet t45 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Everything printing in PINK

My HP officeJet printer is not printing color properly. Black prints fine, but anything in color comes out various shades of pink. The only solution I have tried is taking the color cartridge out & reinserting and cleaning print heads. Suggestions?

    It is a fussy printer. It will not print anything in color. The boarding pass is in black but still it comes out blank.

    When i print a color document, the light grey keeps on coming fully black out of the printer. Tried everything from cleaning up options on the 2600n printer. Doesn't help. Levels are ok! I don' t understand

    It is like a dark color, a shade of black changes to an orange color as the print dries.

Assuming you have successfully eliminated cartridge/print head problems, the only other thing to try is to delete the printer software and reinstall [Start/Printers and faxes -right click on the printer icon click delete- install new printer -Have the software disk and handy or select from list- select maker, select model,] I suspect the problem is still print head/cartridge however

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)

magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade
