Printer question - advice please?
I have a HP DeskJet 932C, and have had for about... 5 years. It's always worked fine. Until recently. I noticed the print was getting light, and a little green. So I checked, found out that the color cartridge needed to be replaced, and did so.

Now I have a flaming little printer that is perfectly happy to print in shades of teal, hot pink, and olive... when it should be in primary colors.

I'd hate to run out and buy another expensive color cartridge, only to find out that it's the printer and I need to replace it (and have by then wasted money on 2 color cartridges). Any way of figuring it out, short of getting another cartridge or paying big $$ for TPTB to look at it?

go to www.support.hp.com and get the diagnostics. You can narrow it down a lot that way. Also tech support can help you out.

You might just need to clean the printheads.

Thanks for the advice!

Just wanted to let you know I never got a package. Is it lost? Or is life blindsiding you?

Five years is a long time for a printer. Buy a new one.

You could probably buy a new printer for the cost of having a repair person look at it.

Just MHO
