On-screen objects are missing colour, but show colour in Print Preview.Why?

Question: On-screen objects are missing colour, but show colour in Print Preview.Why?

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.
Cheers!
David

Preferred Solution: On-screen objects are missing colour, but show colour in Print Preview.Why?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Overview: My print preview colour does not match the original image colour.

This has been true since buying this Toshiba with Windows 8 preinstalled. Prior to Win 8 I had a machine with Win 7, and used Spyder4express, and SpyderPRINT for my colour management with no issues. I've recently installed and calibrated my Win 8 machine to try to fix the fact that all prints are off colour and cold, and to maybe fix that in print preview, the print won't match the saved image. Calibrating hasn't helped. Btw, my print matches the preview, but I want it to match the saved file that I've worked on.

I hope you understand my problem. Here's a screenshot, the smaller image should be the same as the larger image in the background! Whether I try to print from Photoshop, Word, Lightroom, Photo Viewer, or Windows Explorer, the colour never matches the saved image. How do I fix this?

Help please...I do cartoons in Photoshop for magazines...how can I adjust my screen, so that what I see on the screen will match what is printed in my client's magazine? Thanks.click here

Answer:Screen colour to match magazine colour?

I found the easiest way to achieve this was to print the picture and then adjust my screen to match. Once you've adjusted the screen all future pictures which look too light or dark, on screen, can be adjusted to suit within your software.

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello friends,
I was just thinking that wouldn't it be great if we get more color options to change the background color on our Windows Phone devices than just black or white as we get on Windows 8.1 devices to customize background color along with tile colour?

Hello.

I seriously need help with my PC. I've reinstalled Windows XP and Service Pack 2, and I can't chnge the Screen resolution or the colour quality. It sucks. The resolution stays at 800x600, the lowest possible, and the colour quality stays at 8 bit. I think I have a ATI 128 MB DDR Radeon 9800 Pro. I dunno whether thats a driver or what. And I also don't know my graphics card, or whether that will help at all.

I would swear at this point but I'm too young.

Oh but I'll use this instead

Has anyone got any help for me that I can understand. I'm 14 but I still can understand most computer talk.

Anyway thanks very much for reading all this crap and please try not to point out all my spelling mistakes.

Answer:[resolved]Help with resolution and colour and colour quality??.. anyone??

Heya, welcome to the forums


Okay, it has to do with your drivers. Go to ATI's website and find your driver.

Here's the link

http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeonx-xp.html

Please download and install both the Control Center as well as the Display driver. Then restart your computer and try to change the resolution.

Hi Allhope someone more knowledgable can advise - I recently purchased a Lexmark x500n multifunction colour laser printer - I had a big black print job to do excel and word - 2000 pages - i was shocked to see that - ok the black starter cartridge of 2500 pages was nearly empty- fair enough - but all three colour cartridges (1500 page size) were nearly all empty too - I hadn't done any colour printing but when i contacted the manuf they advised that the printer uses colour also to print black!! - it's getting returned to them - but do do all colour lasers do this - obviously this quadruples the costs of printing and has put my costing out of the window!! - any advice would be great - it's a network colour printer, with copier and scanner that I need - a fax would be great but not essential.thanks in advanceTrifly

Answer:COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

That would pee me off no end. How in God's name can it use colour to create black when there's a black cartridge in there? A cheapo mono laser seems to be your ideal tool. I know nothing about colour laser printers, but is there an option anywhere in the settings to print using only the black cartridge? Does the printer still work if you take out the colour cartridge while printing only black text documents?

Answer:Canon printer won't print colour

Hello,
will need more detail to make an assessment. What happens when you try to print color? Do you only get black ink on the page? Did you remember to remove the tape sealing the cartridge as the directions on the color cartridge indicated? Do you hear any strange sound or get any messages? Does your computer's printer driver/interface indicate you have color ink? The possibilities are many so please zap me back a reply and I will do my best to help.

Waiting for your reply!!

Answer:Epson Stylus 660 Colour won't print!

It may end being just a defective cartridge, however you could try these things:
1) Remove cartridge inspect contacts for residue from covering material. Take Swab (q-tip) and alcohol clean contacts thoroughly.
2) Clean contacts on printer same way.
3) Make sure dust and/or coagulated ink is not present on ink nozzles.
4) Reseat cartridge and run printer utility to clean nozzles and run calibration/test page.
If all the above fails return the cartridge as defective and get a new Epson cartridge for your printer.

Go to the toolbar of Outlook express and click on tools/options/compose, then Font settings, look to the lower left and choose your colour. You can also choose your font type and size from here, and it will remain that way until you change it yourself.I think that what you are doing at the moment is choosing your font colour from the compose box of the "Write email" window itself, this will only apply for the one message and revert back to default ready for next time. j.

I have both Paint Shop Pro versions 7 and 9, and use an Epson 895 for my colour printing.Something strange has happened; version 7 will now only print in black & white. The same picture when printed from version 9 comes out in all its colour. It is also fine when printing a colour document from MS Word. It used to be OK.I have tried removing v7 from the PC, and re-installing, but it is still the same. I don`t know when the problem started because its some time since I last did any colour printing. I use a Samsung laser, (connected via parallel port) for normal printing. The 895 is connected via USB.You may ask why do I want the two versions?; well I find I still use v7 mostly, because I am so very familiar with it.Has anyone any ideas?.

Answer:Paint Shop Pro 7 won`t print in colour

Open version 7 then go to Print view and you will find that also wil show in B/W. Its because you have your laser printer set as the default printer in version 7. At least I think that's the answer because it happened to me with adobe elements.While in version 7, go to file/print and look in the top window, you will most likely see your laser printer as the default one, change it back to the colour printer.

I have a Brother DCP-115C printer with blurry print when using black ink but not when using coloured ink. Somehow the text on the test print document comes out ok in black, and the alignment test print looks correct too. When I print from Microsoft Word, (or notepad), it comes out blurry.

This is a problem that has just started happening after the printer has been working fine for a good six months. I've replaced the black ink cartridge with a new Brother branded cartridge to see if that made any difference but it didn't. I've been through cleaning and test print and alignment many times. I can't find anything in the firmware that I haven't tried. I've searched the internet and manufacturer's site to no avail.

I think the answer is "no". But, of course, you can probably change the font colour in Word or whatever software the document is being printed from. But that will require trial and error -- you'll have to specify colours which don't have any black mixed in them.

Hi

can anyone give me some advice please?

I’ve got a problem with my printer as soon as it runs out of one colour it will not print anymore, this is fine however all I want to do these days is print black ink only, im not interested in colour printing or photo printing.

Initially I bought the printer for photos colour etc and I do like the printer and it prints good quality documents and quite fast, but I only need black and white for 99% of my needs.

Its there a way to configure it to use the black cartridge only and to ignore the other cartridges?

I have changed the setting in the printer software to print greyscale only but, it’s still the same, as soon as one colour goes the printer fails to print and tells me to change colour cartridges.

I would be happy if the only cartridge I ever have to change is the black one.

Im working with Vista.

Ive searched the net to try and find a solution but getting nowhere, Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I am test-driving Dreamweaver MX for my local club but I am having a few difficulties. Hopefully someone can help. In Dreamweaver 3 when you open a page/file and select a background colour (say mad red for example) that is exactly what you see - mad red! However, in Dreamweaver MX this does not seem to be the case. When the program opens the default colour appears to be a shade of blue. If I want to change it, or change part of it, and go through the normal process Modify-Page Properties-background and select my mad red all I get is a slightly darker shade of blue!! But if I preview it in the browser it comes up mad red. As you can appreciate this can be annoying. Without switching back and forward from Dreamweaver to browser you have no idea what is going on. It even makes it difficult to read text at times. I am assuming that as Dreamweaver is a WYSIWYG program the colour should change within the program itself. How can I set the program so that when I set background colours and change fonts etc I can see them within Dreamweaver MX without having to constantly view it in browser mode. At first I thought it was the video card but then if I use my old dreamweaver 3 everything works fine and the same goes for all other programs.Many thanks for any help offered. Kevin

Answer:dreamweaver mx - background colour missing

I'd suggest that this is a localised problem with your system.First port of call should be your graphics card drivers and or an uninstall/reinstall of Dreamweaver.Your page changes should preview in the Dreamweaver interface, just like the oder versions of that program. The fact that they don't would point to either a graphics card issue or Dreamweaver's interaction with your graphics systemWould you mind posting again with details of your operating system and graphics card ?

Answer:HP DeskJet 720C missing colour

1. You could start by checking that the new cartridge is not dodgy by standing it for a few seconds on absorbent kitchen roll and checking that the cyan, magenta and yellow inks leave visible marks.2. Is the replacement a HP cartridge or a refill/compatible?

Hi,

I have a Satellite 1100-Z6 notebook which doen't display the RED colour. To troobleshoot this I went to the Intel Graphics Properties and under the Colour tab turned each colours gamma up and noted the response.

Both the Green and Blue work fine but nothing happens when I turn the Red up/down using the slider control so as a consequence I have a blue/green tint on my display.

This is also the same on an external monitor so I suspect its something to do with the Graphics card itself.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be very welcome.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite 1100-Z6: Display RED colour is missing

Hi,

did you already tried to deinstall the intel graphics driver and to download/install the latest available version? Would be helpful to know since if you didn?t tried it already, it could be a software related issue.
So, just go here: www.intel.com and download the drivers. Perform the reinstall and tell whats happening and if your problem was solved.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Have a problem with a system that has on a number of occasions changed the desktop from Olive Green to to a muddy blue and all pages and shortcuts to a shade of pink. The machine is otherwise perfectly normal though printing of photographs is no longer possible due to colour changeDid first remove and reinstall the Radeon 9600 card but without result. At other times have tested all plug ins, insured all tight home, and the system has returned to normal but only for a short period...all cable connections checked also.Unless anyone can advise otherwise it could be that the 128 mb Radeon 9600 (XP) pro card is suspect and I would appreciate info re a suitable replacement. An increase to 256 mb would be an advantage but not essential because I do not use for games and do not wish to spend more than is necessary.The PC is a Microland unit purchased shortly before the company failed and luckily has been OK to date...but so much for 2 + 1 year warranty.Any advice is very welcome.Regards.

Answer:Screen "OFF" Colour

Is this on a CRT monitor? If so, try a "degauss". If this doesn't work, I am a firm believer in "percussive maintenance", so give it a light but firm slap on the side or the top of the monitor. If that still doesn't work, one of the cathode rays maybe on the fritz and the only resolution then is to put your hand in your pocket and buy a new monitor.PLEASE don't hit it if it's a TFT monitor!

Please help an old man, when i scan a piece of paper from my printer it goes to my selected folder but when i open it all the background is black and not white any help plz

Answer:screen changed colour

Hi, usually scanners have a preview option so you can get an idea of how the scan will appear. A flatbed scanner will do the preview scan more quickly than usual.

If you are not happy with the preview, there are adjustments you can make, then retry the preview scan.
The adjustments available will depend on whether you choose a black & white, greyscale or colour scan.

The functions available depend on your scanner driver.

I've never used a scanner/printer combination though. If you post your particular printer type, you might be lucky and someone reading this post might be familiar with your device.

You might also consider asking a question in the forum related to your printer, or checking its manual.

Answer:Screen changing colour

It's possible your browser has been hijacked and you are running a dodgy .css filke that can cause these symptoms, to check this out please
Go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

If you are talking about MSN Messenger, then the only option you have is to change the colour via the "Change your scene" window. I don't think MSN has anything fancy like scripting (if you are talking about CSS and that kind of stuff).

If you mean Windows Live Hotmail and you are using Firefox, then you might be able to use Stylish to add/modify custom CSS for that web page.

Hi,

I was using my sony vaio laptop recently and the screen suddenly went several different colours and I couldn't make out anything.
When I rebooted, the recovery system kicked in and this worked away, then eventually took me back into windows. Worked fine for a while, then it did it again. Only this time on re-boot the recovery didn't come in and it took me back into windows.
it worked for a while (long enough for me to back up my data to disk,) then crashed again. I thought that it might be overheating so I took the laptop apart and cleared out the (quite blocked,) fan. This hasn't made any difference and now the screen is distorting pre windows start up (ie at first screen as soon as you turn it on.)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have 2 intermittent problems which may indicate my laptop is on the way out but first I just want to get anyone???s advice about the situation.
I have a Satellite P30-145 just over a year old and I'm in the US for 6 months and its WARM here. The laptop was powering off a few times a month before I came to Florida a few weeks ago but now with the temps so much higher (70-80F indoors) it powers off a lot during the day when the processor is going strong (like a Spy Sweeper sweep) and I can really only use it in the evening and at night now when it's cooler. I've been told this is a motherboard issue now as its gone way past being a dust/fan issue. The laptop is raised well above my lap tray so the 2 fans are completely free to do their thing. Makes no difference.

Secondly, just recently I started to get a blue tint to white areas on the screen and if it was, say, a photo, then the colour would be affected too. This comes and goes when I press down on the metal casing area just above the 'Pause' button along the top of the keyboard. Again the Geeks in Best Buy today (US electronic store) said it was related to the motherboard.

Given these 2 annoying (at best) issues and the huge cost of a motherboard, I guess I'm really looking at a new laptop and the fact that it's only 13 or so months old is disgraceful.

Anyone got ANY suggestions - apart from saying I was an idiot not to get an extended warranty?

Answer:Satellite P30 Power Off & Screen Colour

Hi

I will not say that you?re an idiot because you don?t have an extended warranty but of course the longer warranty period is very useful and as far as I know the notebook registration on the Toshiba website would increase the warranty to 24 month. (12 month standard warranty + 12 month warranty after registration)

However, in my opinion the shut downs problems are related to the high temp inside the notebook. I think you should check the Toshiba power saver options. There you can change the cooling method and the CPU speed.

Secondly, I don?t know exactly why the blue tint appears on the display but a similar happens when I press a little bit the LCD screen surface.
I think it?s not a motherboard issue and possibly only a little part on the board must be replaced.

I think you should firstly try to contact the ASP in your country. The guys could give you more details as everyone here in the forum. You know we are all common notebook users and not technicians.

Answer:HELP! Screen is different colour than real image

Hi Cal2500 ... and welcome to the forums ...


The original image, which seems to be a saved screen-shot of someone's desktop (who happens to use PhotoShop - the icon is active on the taskbar = is indeed a nice, rich photograph.

The washed-out image: are you saying that this is that same screen-shot as it appears on your Acer laptop screen? Did you take a photograph of your screen? The best representation to show us how your screen looks would be to take a screen-shot of it, and post that (if what you've posted is indeed an actual photograph of your screen, as taken with a camera).

So: do all images display as washed out as this example, and has this always been an issue with your Acer? Or did something change recently?

Seems like you might want to start over as far as your display settings go. Remove your monitor from Device Manager, and let it be re-detected. Uninstall your graphics drivers, and let Windows re-detect and reinstall your graphics drivers. That should get you back to standard settings. If images all still seem to be "washed out", attach an external monitor, and see if the issues persist on it as well. If all displays wonderfully on the external monitor, you might want to contact Acer and see if there is a "known issue" with the screens for your model (and if they have a "known repair"!) . . .

Ask for it to be replaced if it proves to be faulty. [Or, if you are out-of-warranty: replacements screens ar... Read more
