When i print a document, IMAGES with blue print perfectly but TEXT/GRAPHICS with blue print in the wrong shade of blue. PDF/PPT/Website - it all has the same issue
When I print the pdf to an image and then print, the colors are accurate (but the quality is naturally worse). When I screenshot the text/graphics and then print, the colors are also accurate.
I have the same issue printing from the PC (Windows 10) or using Direct WiFi.
I'm guessing the problem is at the printer level but please help me!

If yes, refer to this document: https://support.hp.com/in-en/product/hp-color-laserjet-pro-m280-m281-multifunction-printer-series/14...
If the copy is working fine this could be a driver issue, follow the below suggestion.
