HP DESKJET 2652 printing dull red colors

deskjet 2652
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a deskjet 2652 and it is not printing reds correctly.  I have done the "cartidge cleaning" and printed several diagnostic pages and the Magenta looks purple/grey and is extremely dull.  I notice I had a problem while printing a picture of my son and everything I print looks on the blue side.  I have also tried new ink and it did not solve my issue.  Anybody else experience this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @jplvr86

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.


Have you tried making a standalone copy in color and check if the issue persists?

Also, Print a Print Quality Diagnostic page

Refer to step 8 from this document.


If the issue persists, I'm afraid this is a hardware issue with the printer. Please contact our HP Support team for Service Options:

1) Click on this link -

2) Select your product type below.

3) Enter the serial of your device.

4) Select the country from the drop-down.

5) Select the appropriate option based on your preference.

6) Fill the web-form and proceed further.


Keep me posted for any other assistance.
