And I have. The test patterns look normal and are complete. Initially the patterns had missing segments; after a number of cleaning cycles they finally became complete.

All of the colors print normally AFAICT; the magenta *may* be a bit light, I have no way to be certain. All of the colors are solid, and look like the color they claim to be. The test document was created in Libreoffice. I imported one of the images from Gimp and printed it. The result was the same: an off-color green tint. This implies the problem is the printer, not Gimp or Libreoffice. While there a few processing steps between an app and the printer, I would expect them to treat the output data as sacred. Do the apps reference some common system values for deciding the output color balance? -- James Moe moe dot james at sohnen-moe dot com 520.743.3936 Think.
