colour printing

  benoli 13:25 08 Aug 2005

I have tried to print colour photos on photo paper using a HP5652 I get a yellow picture. Yet if I use plain paper I get a proper picture. I am using a photo ink cartridge as well as the colour cartridge. Any suggestions I have tried in vain using different settings and photo paper.

From what you describe it could be the paper'setting
on the printer or some close to it.
If you visualize it for one moent youet set up the printer to print either on plain paper or photo paper- you do dont you?

If you dont investigate the printer set up protocols.

Assuming you do- then as far as the printer is concerned, and assuming all colours are working
as you infer they are[good picture on plain paper]
then it would not matter too much if you fed the print a shredded wheat packet- it would not affect ink delivery.
By the by the best mode for colour photos, not with standing the paper type or brand - Ink Jet Transparancy - it is also very economical with the ink.

Reading through your piece again you say,
You have a colour cartridge and a 'Photo Ink'
cartridge- two sorts of colour- and both doing this?- if so then this is not an ink or papet problem but a printer setting problem that need sorting out or the program you are using as a 'print engine'
