    I have a HP Deskjet 882C. For months now when it tries to print in color I only get pink. At first I assumed I just needed a new ink cartridge, but even that still just prints in pink. Anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

    You might want to check your color management settings too. My bosses printer was only printing pink, even for black, a while back. If I remember right, there was something wrong with the settings and he was also low on ink.

    I had that problem recently on my HP 952C and I did replace the color cartridge and everything was fine. Anything that I was printing in greyscale was coming out pink. Don't know what else to suggest, perhaps cleaning the contacts like Brett suggests. Does it print pink even on the test page too?
