Everything is printing in pink

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am hoping someone can help me out with this. I have created several files that are exclusively black/gray, but when I go to print them, everthing comes out pink. I have even tried to copy the image into a word document, but it still comes out pink. The image looks correct on the screen, but I can't figure it out. I am able to print from word in black, but not from paint. I have even set the printer preferences to print grayscale and still the lines and words come out pink. It is probably something easy and silly that I am overlooking, but I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks in advance for all of your help!!

More to the point, many ink printers have 2 ink cartridges. one black, and the other having the three primary colors (red, green, blue - hence the standard designation of RGB). At any rate, if you do a lot of color printing, it is possible that one color has expelled itself before the 2 of the others, leaving you with only the pink color resulting from your cartridge trying to produce what it cannot because of the shortage of the necessary color it needs.

You may also need to check your printer's menus for a "clean print head" option.

The print heads may be dirty, preventing the colors from being correct.

Thanks, guys! It looks like I was just out of colored ink, even though the computer was telling me it was full. I switched the printer properties to only use the black cartridge and it printed out for me. Thanks again!!
