hp printer everything prints pink

Specs: Windows Vista
It started doing this with old cartridges and continues with new ones. I followed HP directions for the problem and it did not work. I have HP desk jet 812C. Do I need a new printer?

Maybe it needs an alignment? If not that, then yeah, maybe you need a new printer.

Depending on how old.
Sometimes you need to clean print heads a few times before they work properly again (once it took me 5 times).
Some HP printers have separately replaceable print heads that need to be replaced every few years to continue to print well. Not all of their ink jet printers have them (usually the office grade ones), they are not easy to find except from HP (Google or check ebay), and HP charges quite a bit for them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

There is software that should come with it or maybe an icon in the lower right to use tools.
One of the tools is called clean printheads or some similar phrase. Try that a few times.

Use the print preview in windows to be sure you are printing a good copy.
