I have an HP Photosmart Premium All In One printer. Every time I print photos they have a green tint. I cannot find a way to calibrate the printer. How can I fix this issue?

Try following the steps in the following document , in particular make sure to clean the printhead and align the printer. Please let me know if this helps...

Did this happen when you installed a new cartridge. That is happened to me. Also, the alignment page which printed when I initially installed the new printer, is not the same page that printed when I replaced the cartridge. In order to get the scan alignment to work, I found the original alignment page, and then I received a statment that alignment was complete; only now, everything has a green tint. HELP indeed.

The answer is to Clean the Print heads!!!
I had this problem and I saw a thread where people had it happen on a Canon and HP printer and even after replacing cartrdiges so they assumed it was a software problem. I knew that was not the case because on one of my photos, you could see a smear of green tint near the end and then the photos after had a green tint on the entire photo.
I did some research and concluded that I either needed new cartridges or some type of maintenance. By doing a Print Test Page and seeing that the colors were a little off, I knew it wasnt the program I was using. I tried Clean Printhead and boom, back to looking beautiful and all colors spot on!!
P.S. I know this is an old thread but it like many others on this topic had no good solutions so I wanted to post it for people in the future who find it while trying to address a similar problem.

We're having the same green tint issues. I have cleaned the printheads, aligned the printer, cleaned the printheads again, re-aligned, taken every cartridge out and "cleaned" the bottoms with a soft paper towel, replaced, cleaned the printheads again and then re-aligned. Still a green tint. Any suggestions?
