Can anyone please tell me why my photos are turning pink ?, I use an HP720c printer or is it the paper I use > cheers

You do not say whether they are printing out pink, or canging colour after printing.

Try printing a test strip to see if all your colours are being printed.That way you can see if the printer is working.There will be a test facility on your printer properties,or I use paint and make squares of red,green,blue,yellow and black.If they come up a different colour you will have a clue where your problem lies.

silly question but have you checked your cartridges arent running out of ink. i printed out some photos recently and the ink was low but this didnt show up on the ink level indicator. changed the cartrdige and job done.

Check the colour content in your cartridge.I had a similar problem with a tri-colour cartridge, and found that the blue was the problem, due to low capacity, as per accord solution.Change the cartridge.

If you mean Ageing that's what ultraviolet light does to them. If it's when you print you are probably out of one of the colours in you printer

I'm with accord and spuds on this - had a similar problem on some of my photos - did a printer test and cleaning job and bingo - problem solved!

These are photos I printed a while ago and framed, they are now turning pink......I should have been more explicit. Cheers

As I said Above Ageing that's what ultraviolet light does to them, you would be better to take them on a CD or on Digi memory card, and get them printed at a photo shop

My mate has an HP 890C printer which began to play up and failed to print some of the colours, including red.

None of the normal tests or corrections work so he sent it for repair; it turned out that the new HP colour cartridge he had just bought was faulty.
