When you print an image only to find that it has incorrect shades and tone colours, or is perhaps printing the wrong colour completely, you’re presented with a problem that is not an uncommon occurrence which can thankfully be solved quickly and easily.
When addressing this problem, your first port of call should be to check the ink levels inside the cartridge. If you find the levels are of a high level, the problem is probably a more complex one. But before you consider hiring a professional to solve the issue for you, there are a few simple checks that can be done to sort the issue effectively without relying on assistance. Read on for this useful guidance.
The problem may be that your cartridge has been incorrectly installed. Without a correct connection printing colour quality will decline. All printer models are different and require different means of cartridge insertion. What works for one printer may not necessarily be right for another.
If you are unsure of the correct means of installation, be sure to read the printer’s manual if you have it. However, if you cannot access a physical copy of the manual, you will more than likely find details of the printer model online. If this is inaccessible, your best call is to the printer customer support helpline on the manufacturer’s website as this will ensure that you acquire the information that you need.

A Problem Cartridge?
One of the most common reasons for inefficient printing which regularly gets overlooked is the fact that there is a flaw with the cartridge itself, because some cartridges will inevitably be manufactured defectively. To avoid this from happening, you should insert a different cartridge to check whether a difference in printer performance occurs. If this solves the problem, simply return the faulty cartridge to wherever you purchased it from for a refund.
The Print Head is clogged
Another frequent source of defective colour printing is when print head inside of the printer malfunctions by becoming clogged with ink. You can easily assess whether this is the case problem the possibility by using the interior printer utility known as the ‘nozzle check’. This feature detects problems by testing whether the nozzles of the Print-Head are functioning correctly. Such a capability is a feature of most modern printer designs; just check the printer manual for details. However, if you have trouble finding instructions for this software, your printer can actually guide you towards a nozzle check by using the menu tools on your printer. Once you are ready to perform this check, be sure to only do it when you genuinely need to run it because this procedure uses up a large amount of ink when it cleanses the nozzles.
