I am currently having this problem.
I am using this printer and I reffiled the original cartridges. Everything is fine and test pages print out perfect with all colours in place and right dencity . But the problem is that after reffiling, photos print with a green tint. Before reffiling colours were fine. I have done all cleanings. As I said all colours print fine individually
Thank you in advance

Do you face the same issue when making Photocopies?
If Photocopies are fine,
I suggest you uninstall the printer driver from root level and download the full feature software and the Firmware
1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features
2.) Select your HP Printer
3.) Select Uninstall
4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers
5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove Device’
6.) Open up the run command with the “Windows key + R” key combo.
7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”)
8.) Click on the “Drivers” tab
9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom
10.) Select Ok
11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows
12.) Close Devices and Printers
13.) Restart the computer and download the Full Feature Software and the Firmware from Here and follow the onscreen Instructions
Let me know how it goes 😊

Thank you for your reply.
I have the same problem with the photocopies when I print photos.
I will try your solution anyway when I have time. I know it is a complicated proplem and if this doesn't work I think that the problem lies with the mixing of the new colours... But as I said test pages with all the mixed colours print fine...
Anyway thank you again for your help, I will try and post the results!

If the issue occurs when making Photocopies then it is a Hardware issue
You could try updating the Firmware but if the issue persists please contact HP Support for Service Options or try with genuine HP Cartridges as HP does not recommend refilled cartridges

I have the same problem. My colour copies AND prints are tinted green even though my cartridges are genuine. However, I was supposed to receive Instant-ink cartridges but didn't, so I had to buy one myself. No update is available. What can I do? Head clean?

Thank you for your reply and sorry for taking so long. I was away for a few days.
My product number is M2U85B
I have tried a few auto-cleans through the options on the screen but no result. I also checked the ink levels. I believe I have had this problem for several months now (perhaps since last summer) and I am pretty sure the colour cartridge was changed since.

@JulienB If the issue occurs while you copy as well, it's most likely a hardware malfunction and to confirm the same,
I suggest you create a print quality test page using the below steps and get back with the results:
Print a Print Quality Diagnostic report from the printer control panel, and then evaluate the results.
Load the printer with plain white paper.
On the printer control panel, swipe left on the display, and then touch Setup .
Swipe up on the display, and then touch Print Quality Report.
A Print Quality Diagnostic report prints.

Thank you again for your reply.
I did what you said, which I am sure I had already done before contacting you. The results came up as below sort of OK eccept that both magentas were missing and yellow seemed perhaps a bit pale (not sure if yellow is supposed to look like that).
Then I did a first cartridge cleaning and the following diagnosis came up the same as the first one.
I then did a second cleaning, but the diagnosis came up almost blank because the black cartridge was now low. I changed it and ran a diagnosis again, which came up the same as the first diagnosis except for tiny blank lines in the colour blocks. I wish I could attach the diagnoses to show you (they are scanned into the computer already) but there doesn't seem to be a way here.
It is really starting to do my head in, especially since I have had the printer for less than a year (or close to it). What else can I do?
