Color problem When I print photos they all come out with a greenish hue all over the picture. It was working just fine and then suddenly started doing this. I've changed cartridges, cleaned and aligned the heads. What can I do? Thanks.

What does a nozzle check pattern show? Are there any gaps in the pattern?

As a first port of call I would suggest you follow the instruction in my previous posts about under head cleaning. This can solve all kinds of issues with print quality and even if it does not sort your machine, you know that the head is clean and the nozzles are clear. Read this post

If that does not get you on the way, post the results of the nozzle check and we will see where to go from there.

SOURCE: green hue

I am not a printer expert, but since none of them have jumped on your question, I will try to help. I had a similar problem with my Dell awhile back and found out it was a problem with the paper. First, try printing a picture using plain copy paper and see if it has the green hue. If not I would think the printer and program are ok. Make sure you are printing on the glossy side of the photo paper(some of it is hard to tell the difference) and that your printer preferences are set for the correct type of paper you are using. Please reply to let me know what you find.

When I print a picture it is greenish. All the


You need to make sure you are not using the photo magenta, your printer doesn't use photo magenta and it leaves the prints green. You need also to run the nozzle check print by holding the resume button until the green light flashes twice, and see if all colors are printed. If not you need a new printhead, the part number is on the side.

Toshiba Rear Projection TV picture color is now a greenish hue


Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:  

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 

If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips. 

Typical Symptoms

1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.  
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails. 

2) Screen is bowed looking.

If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com  

Hope this helps :)

Does the c7280 use seperate Magenta and PhotoMagenta cartridges? If so make certain the right cartridge is in the correct slot.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.

Black does not print well


Try priting a test page to identify the color in questions.

http://www2.clicshop.com/Stores/metawatch2/Files/metawatchprintertestpage.pdf

Chances are you are running out of another color...

In reality the printers actually use other colors to print black, besides the black ink. (I.E. if its a picture etc...)

A greenish hue normally means your Magenta is running low.
