Printer Colors Go Crazy
My printer starts printing black and then slowly fades into different colors.
My printer is an HP psc 1210 all-in-one. It used to print fine. I noticed the
problem after I installed the last security update.
I run Mandrake 10.1
I already tried deleting and then adding the printer again with the CUPS admin tool.
Also, the printer works fine with my Windows machine, so I know the problem is not the printer.
Problem fixed--sort of.
I usually print b&w docs, but today I printed something with color on it. The colors didn't print correctly because the color cartridge was on its last leg. After I replaced the color cartridge, the colors printed fine. But that is not all that was fixed by putting in a new color cartidge--now the black and white documents also print correctly again.
The interested thing is my Windows machine printed the b&w docs fine even though the color cartridge was empty.
