This is just random thoughts but could it have something to do with rgb vs cmyk. Also colour copiers and maybe printer have anti forgery in firmware. Could you be printing a $5 bill? Could it be the application software, not the driver or printer?

What kind of printer are you using ?
Did you print out a test page ?
Check your ink levels and also check your printhead life expectancy.
