I have a Canon S4500 printer and even though the ink tanks are full it will not print orange any suggestions?

What does it print instead?

Is it just one shade of orange?

Are Yellow and Red ok??

It prints green instead of orange.

Are the ink tanks seperate colours If so it sounds as though Red and Blue are not mounted in the correct place.

I'll check it tomorrow

What about other colours?

Yes all the other colours are fine

I have an HP deskjet and it wont print yellow. Even though I have tried 2 new colour cartridges it refuses to print yellow. HP say that the machine has an unrepairable fault and I need to buy a new one.
Could yours be suffering the same malady?

Hope not but thanks for the reply?

Hi dfritter!

Have you printed a nozzle check pattern?
If so are there any broken lines?
Broken lines indicate blocked nozzles.

It sounds funny if it prints green instead of orange.

Green is blue and yellow

Orange is red and yellow

Sounds like its printing blue when it should be printing red!

But all other colours are fine!

What software are you printing from?
