Printer Tech Question

Reply Sat 19 Mar, 2011 12:41 pm
I'm trying to print some black and white photos on plain paper. The original captures were in color. I've re-saved them as B&W. I set the printer to gray scale printing. When I print, they come out with pink shading. I switched to printing them in color and the same thing happens.

I am using a HP Photosmart printer that has a color cartridge which is low on ink levels and a black cartridge which is fine on ink levels.

Can anyone help me avoid the pink tint?

You need to change your color cartridge. Even when printing black and white, the printer uses the color cartridge. You might be able to set the printer to use the black cartridge only if it is like my HP. When you select greyscale, you get the options to print in "High Qualtiy", "Black Cartridge Only" or "Fax/Photocopy mode". You can try that.
