Creating an image on the screen and on paper are 2 very different processes. The process of creating an image on the screen is done by adding 3 basic colours red, green and blue. The process of creating an image is done by subtracting from white ( white paper) 3 colours cyan, magenta, yellow and black.

 

Getting the same colour on the paper and on the computer screen requires a professionally calibrated monitor and professionally calibrated printer. That equipment costs money and professionals have it.

If your printer is in fully working order with all colours working as they should you can do some adjustments on your computer (print driver)  but getting the same colours on screen and on the paper for a home printer will be very hard.

I received the following explanation which I find not acceptable since I was very happy with my previous HP printer "All In One 310 series" which I replaced now after 9 year very satisfactory use with very good color representation on photo prints from 4x6 to letter size.
