Thread: HP Printer not printing colors right

    Default HP Printer not printing colors right

    I am not sure if this is the right place for this or not, but I am having a problem getting my HP6300 series all in one printer to print photo's with proper colors, all colors seem to run. I have hplip installed and set up to print photo's and it still prints colors like runs instead of correct.

    Sorry to hear of your problem nitewalker41. I don't understand what you mean by "runs". Have you printed from Windows with this printer and if so, how does it work? What kind of photo paper are you using? Are your color cartridges new or refills? How long have you had this printer and has it ever work properly for you.

    Thank You,

    Hi nitewalker41

    1) Is the printer an OfficeJet 6300, or C6300.....?

    2) Are you using openSUSE 11.4. Without understanding your printing problem completely, some users have reported issues using the hplip driver (with 11.4 at least), and found better results with the hpijs driver instead. This might be applicable if you have an OfficeJet printer.

    This thread is an example of that.

    I hope it is as simple as that in your case.

    3) BTW, did you configure your printer with hp-setup (as root), YaST printer config tool, or did you use the CUPS web config tool?

    Printer is 2 years old, works fine in Win 7 and in Ubuntu, problem is that the color's seem to bleed into each other when trying to print from Open Suse 11.4, not sure of how else to explain it, cartridges are all new, using HP photo paper.

    If you still have Ubuntu available, try comparing the drivers in use. Compare output of

    Code:
    sudo cat /etc/cups/printers.conf
    with both OS installations.

    It is not.

    This forum is for you to publish howtos, where you explain to us how to do
    difficult things.

    Please move the thread.

    Have you tried configuring via CUPS web interface?

    I couldn't find your exact printer here:
    Printer List | OpenPrinting - The Linux Foundation
    My openSUSE 13.1 KDE Box
    My Articles
    Was I any help? If yes: Click the star below

    No I have not, all I have done is installed HPLIb-hpilis from "software add and remove"
