HP Designjet 500 and 800 Series Printers - Black and White Images Print with Green Tint

Introduction

If color use is set to Color or Grayscale, the printer uses composite black, which uses several different colors to make black. Composite black can cause a greenish tint with various print jobs. Follow the instructions below to enable true black, which should eliminate or severely reduce the green tint issue.
note:
If using a glossy media, the solution below will likely not improve the situation, as true black has already been disabled. Try re-loading media and qualifying as a non-gloss media type, however, doing so will enable true black, which generally does not adhere well to glossy media.
Figures 1 and 2 are of older drivers, Figures 3 and 4 show these same settings in the latest drivers available on the web.
  1. Access the printer properties and click the Color tab.
  2. In the Color use section select True black.
    Figure : Printer properties, Color tab, True black
  3. Following the change, click Apply and then click OK.
  4. The printer will now use True black when printing.
If Color or Grayscale must be used (e.g. True black forcing AutoCAD line colors to print in all black) the steps below provide a possible workaround that will allow the use of Color or Grayscale and possibly eliminate the green tint issue.
  1. Access the printer properties and click the Color tab.
  2. In the Color use section select Color.
    Figure : Printer properties, Color tab, No color correction
  3. In the Printed color control section, select No color correction.
  4. Following the change, click Apply and then click OK.
note:
