Color incompatibility between laptop and printer
My wife is getting colors that are different between her hp dv7 windows home and hp all-in-one b210 printer. The colors are correct on the laptop but come out quite different on the printer. I haven't been able to find any knobs to turn on the laptop to correct this. I don't have this problem with my xp desktop and hp 7200 printer.
Does anyone know where to begin looking for settings on either the laptop or on the printer?
Comments: To help others who may have same problem, this is what I discovered. I had her print a web page and the colors were really off. I replaced the print cartridges then ran another print. The colors compared well to the monitor. These (B210) cartridges are small and store a salesman had previously commented that they tend to dry up. The problem thus was probably gunky cartridges. I found a "clean print heads" function on tools. I recommended she run this monthly to keep the them clean (I don't normally use her printer). In thinking about it, I realized my 7200 automatically cleans the print heads plus its cartridges are much larger.
