Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > RED SKIES AND BLUE ROSES

RED SKIES AND BLUE ROSES

The Annoyance:

I printed a photo on my inkjet printer, and the output was streaked and the colors didn't match what I saw onscreen. The sky was red, and the roses were blue! What went wrong?

The Fix:

If you don't use your inkjet printer regularly-at least once a month-the ink cartridges get funky and print quality can plummet. My advice? Run the head cleaning utility and print a couple of color-intensive pages. If the fidelity of your output doesn't improve, buy a new cartridge. And from now on, print a color page at least once a week.
