Hi Good day.. Maybe your printer head was not properly clean my solution for you is to clean it by using the head clean in the printer properties... please do the following:
1. 1. Click the Start button at the lower left corner of your screen.
2. Click on Control Panel. Next, choose Printers and Other Hardware, and then View Installed Printers or Fax Printers.
3. When the Printer page opens, right click on your printer's name, and choose Printing Preferences.
4. The Printing Preferences has five tabs across the top; choose Maintenance.
5. Click the Head cleaning, and then click clean again. to start the cleaning.

When the cleaning is done you can print a test page. and see if your print page is fine..
if it's not, you must clean it again... hope my solution will help you..
