    When using my Dell A960 all-in-one printer, all of a sudden everything is coming out pink. (And black). I've messed with the color options, (no help), the cartridges are nearly full and had been working. I searched the forum, and came up with several threads, but nobody had reported back on any solutions.

    I uninstalled the software, restarted the computer and re-installed it, still pink. I'm not getting any error messages. This just came out of the blue. (No pun intended :) )

    The only thing I've done differently is to run Advanced WindowsCare, but a full re-install should have worked if that was the cause, shouldn't it?

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    P.S. Sorry! Wrong category, I meant to post in "Hardware".

    I figured it out myself. :rolleyes: The cause of the problem was owner stupidity. The color ink cartridge was out of ink, but was showing almost full, probably due to the fact that I periodically have to pull it out to get the printer to recognize it. Sorry to waste anyones time. :)
