"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Most printers can print test pages etc., without needing this to be initiated by the PC. Check the manual and print these pages. If the colors appear correctly then, it is probably a driver issue and you would have to try different drivers, or also check if there are different settings in the driver that might correct the issue.

If those test pages also have the same issues, it could be that you got a refurbished toner cartridge that has been refurbished too many times, or something else, like the drum or fuser unit, or if the printer has a transfer foil/belt. Those parts are usually pretty expensive to buy/replace, often a new printer is less expensive...
