Re: Hp sprocket is printing with a pink hue.

I just got the printer today for my birthday and I states that it is version 1.24.0 (3257).  It print with a very yellow washed out hue.  All the color on all pictures look horrible and not defined.  The face lines look not well defined either.  I think it's a total waste of money I less there is a fix for it.  Please help.

Re: Hp sprocket is printing with a pink hue.

I've also done everything listed in this forum and where my photos should be white they come out pink like the early phase of a sunset and the surrounding colors are changed as well because of it. I'm starting to think it's a quality of product problem and cannot be fixed. I just got this printer too, definitely not happy

Re: Hp sprocket is printing with a pink hue.

I came here via google because I have the same problem. I got my Sprocket yesterday and right away I noticed the results of the printouts were pretty bad. Not only are the colours pretty washed out and the photos are bad quality overall - but there's a weird pink/red tint to them. Even the photos I've printed to be black and white. The white/grey is pink-ish in those. 

My Sprocket is fully charget, there's nothing wrong with the app itself, I've updated the firmware and I'm using the papers I'm supposed to use (used the blue paper first as I'm supposed to).

The colour photograph has the tint too, but it's more noticable in the B&W ones (especially this one).They actually look better in this photo than they do IRL.
