It's normally caused by dirty scanner mirrors, the machine will need to be dissembled, the laser scanner unit removed, taken apart and the mirrors cleaned. Unfortunately it is quite fiddly getting the scanner unit out, but this is a very common problem for the HP colour laserjet 2600's and the problem normally always start with the magenta first.

I have a color printer hp office jet 7130 all in one and its only printing in cyan. is the printhead off? or broken can it be fixed and how much would it cost?

Go to paint create black,cyan,megenta & yellow images & print it, observe which colors are not printing,If back missed replace black cartrige, if any color missed out of remain three replace colour cartridge.There is no option to switch off the catridges & printer can recognise the faulty cartridge and it will show on displays.
You can order cartridges online.

Color on monitor is great but when printed has purple tone to them.

try printer a nozzle check from your printer.. most probably one of the color is not coming out.. the print nozzle check should have all the colors... Yellow , Megenta, Cyan and Black...

I have three HP L7780 printers that have bad print heads black/yellow. replaced but same problem. ?????

take out printheads. unplugg power cable from back press adn hold down 6 and # buttons on pritner at same time while holding them down plugg it back in. then insert printheads one by one. first insert black/yellow shutt the door adn check for message on pritner screen. if it says printhead missing cyan/megenta it means it detected black/yellow printhead. do same with cyan/megenta adn check for message on screen. if you see no error mesage and both printheads were detected fine let the printheads alligned completely. then if u see same issue it is the pritner whgich need to be replaced.

Since this morning my printer is not printing the red(megenta).

The problem is with the print head.
Firstly try cleaning cleaning and more cleaning because it means the nossles are blocked or the head is done for. If after doing a ridiculous amount of cleaning it still doesn't work then a last resort that has worked multiple times for me is to get a syringe without a needle. Remove the color in question and get a cup of boiling water fill the syringe and squirt it in the cradle where the ink gets fed to the head and wait 15 mins then repeat the process a few times. Wipe up any water around the contacts and put the cart back in, then go back to the cleaning. If the problem is not solved after this unfortunatly its time to bin the printer because the time to install and cost of the head is generally more than its worth (Not always but mostly the case)
Hope this fixsya
