Printing wrong colour after refilling

  • When the ink cartridge ran out of ink I refilled it with ink. After refilling it the colors did not seem to be quite right.
    Attached the picture .


    The solid block of color is printing with the color selected on the computer and it's 255 magenta, zero cyan, zero yellow, and zero black.
    The lower half of the picture is some ink that I squirted from the refill tube which clearly is only the one colour
    If I understand things correctly, when printing with strictly 255 magenta the color should be the same as in the refill too. If I am wrong, please correct me."

  • Due to the different color mode between PC(RGB mode) and printer(CMYK),
    usually, printer color would become dimmed, particularly for red color.

    This is my understanding.
