Windows 7: Colour-problem with printer

Colour-problem with printer

I'm pissed off at my printer, because he's making troubles the whole night.

Where I'm now: I have a small 3 coloured grafic, orange, yellow and red. He prints it as a colorflow from blue over brown to green but at the wrong places. the only wright colour is red.

How I got there: First exchanged Magenta because it was emty, yellow is nearly full and recently exchanged cyan. he has still some black and this isnt really needed anyway. and during the whole process I did those cleaning, deep cleaning, nozzle check and print head alignment, in the hope it would correct anything. But nothing helped.

The printer is a bit old, but he served me well up to now.

As a idea to solve the problem i printed several papers only with about 15 of that grafic, hoping he gets the wrong colour-mix "washed-out". Which he does a bit till the end of a paper, and in the next it's wrong all over again.

Anyone hasgot an idea?


\\Edit: Ok now it's even worse, it's practically blue and a bit violet. As if the magenta and cyan come in way too strong, and the yellow way too soft, although it clearly has enough ink.

Some additional base information would be nice.
Make and model of the printer first and foremost

The first thing I can think of is a hard reset of both computer and printer.
For the printer actually unplug it for a good 15-20 seconds, and hold the power button when turning it back on.
The computer you can just restart normally.

Let's start by just making sure there isn't some rogue data in there causing this.

hmmmm....something similar happened to me and it turned out that the printer had the problem, not the operating system.

Yes, this is why I suggested the hard restart of the printer in a hope of resetting it.
