plotter printing bw drawings as purple

HP Recommended
designjet 800

When printing Engineering Drawings in B/W they are printing in some sort of faded purple.  I have changed print heads and ink cartridges.  color printing seems fine aside from things that should appear as black. 


At a loss.  Thoughts?
