Printer does not print the "true" color
Posted on 2002-04-30
I have a HP 855Cse. It has always printed very nice colors. I have been using it for B&W only for a half a year or so. But today I went to print a color document and discovered that it CANNOT print the true color RED! I ran it through several tests and it most definately prints all colors perfectly EXCEPT red. It is kind of a reddish brown shade.
My question of the experts is: Can the ink go bad? Can it mix in the cartridge? What other explanation can there be for such poor color reproduction in red?
The cartridge feels "light" (nesar empty) but I do not thin k it has been used all that much - Plus, it does print all other colors quite well...
Please help me here.
