Solved!

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus Yellow Tint

HP Recommended

I recently upgraded to an HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus from an HP Photosmart Premium. I started printing pictures from my computer running Mac OS X 10.8 and my photos either have a yellow tint (whites aren't really white) or are darker than they appear on the screen. This has not happened on my previous printer. I searched online for solutions, but none of them helped, or they mentioned that the printer didn't have ICC profiles. Is there any way to fix this problem or download the ICC profiles for this printer? Regular documents printed on plain paper are fine, but when it comes to printing on photo paper, my pictures aren't what I expect them to be. I have gone through many sheets of photo paper trying to fix this problem so I would like a fix immediately.

when printing, in the middle of the print dialog, there is a dropdown box, select "Color Matching", and select "Vendor Matching" or may be one of the colorsync profiles. Also, in "Paper type, Quality" choose thepaper type that's loaded.

Thank you for the reply, but I stumbled across that solution during my research. My other problem is that the color matching option doesn't appear in the print screen.

Hello,

Could you try making a color copy of a photo and check if the issue still exists.

By doing the above, we could narrow down to check if it is a printer hardware or a software issue ?

Yes, the issue is still persisting. I have already said that the color management/matching settings is absent from my print dialog. I have attached a screenshot of my print dialog for you to see. Is there any way to fix this?

After printing 20+ test pictures, I finally fixed my problem. Turns out that the driver needed to be updated and the printer was not installed/added correctly in the 'Print and Scan' preferences. It was installed using AirPrint, so I reinstalled the printer and manually selected the driver. Then, the color options appeared in the print dialog and the yellow tint, for the most part, was gone (I had to change some options, such as ColorSync). http://support.apple.com/kb/DL907 for driver update, although I believe a system update would also do the trick.Screen Shot 2013-10-13 at 11.58.30 AM.png
