MFP M281fdw colours wrong

MFP M281fdw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Suddenly the printer is not printing properly when printing from an office or pdf format.  Pictures (.jpg) print ok but from office or pdf the yellow is faint making green blue etc.  I can't work it out because the pictures print OK.  I have downloaded a new pcl driver from HP and installed it but it still does the same thing.  I have just upgraded to office 365 and wonder if thats the problem.

@GeorgeH39

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Are the color copies coming out well?

 

Let's try to do a root uninstall and reinstall of the software:

 

Unplug any USB cable, if any, before doing this.

 

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.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo

14.) Type c:/programdata and click Ok. Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

15.) Restart the computer. 

 

Once done, please download and install the software from here:
