My wife's boss has purchased an HP Photosmart Prem C310. Everything works great, except the picture is streaky and comes out pretty wet. This can be a problem if we try to print multiple pictures. Any...


Neil,

The photos coming out pretty wet is understandable as the pictures take a lot of ink (all types) while the text pages hardly use any ink, hence they come out reasonably dry. There is very little we can do other than being cautious while printing photos.

Streaky printing


Hi,
At most cases of printer, especially which have done refill at cartridge, print quality is poor or streaky. Many factors influencing this printed result. To overcome print quality is poor, maybe following tips can usefull to prevent printed pages are missing lines or streaky.

First step is ordinary to be done many people when print quality is streaky that is doing cleaning. To get good printed result, sometime this facility is used more than once.
Use Ink Refill with Quality Nicely
For printer have refilled, sometime the quality of printing is also influenced by ink. If will fill your printer again, use ink which the was quality of nicely. I have tested some refill inks at cartridge which have been ascertained still nicely ( sorry: I do not want to publicize result of this attempt). In the reality result make me surprise, there ink of refill making the printed quality is crummy. To choose ink refill read following tips :
  • See viscosity of ink, every merk of ink refill have difference of viscosity. Don’t use Ink refill too jell. Difference of this viscosity is no measure reference viscosity of ink from factory maker of printer
  • Don’t fear to try some inking merks. Done this, you’d find refill ink fitt with your printer. I now only using one merk of refill ink ?.
  • This suggestion of forum, but I still not yet proved. May believe or not. Good ink aroma of soft usually.
Change Original Cartridge
This is last choice. A lot not like to do this ways, because price of original cartridge still costly. Alternative, you can use compatible cartridge which the was price of cheaper than original cartridge. At newest printer, usually there are two until four cartridge in one printer. And price four same cartridge almost at the price of printer even there are some costlier.

Let me know !

Thanks

What model printer is this? Is it an official Lexmark brand or a generic brand cartridge? If it is a generic brand it must not have been manufactured properly. Your old cartridge became streaky towards the end because of the fact that Lexmark ink tends to dry up very quickly. It needs to be used every now and then or it will start to clog the holes at the bottom of the cartridge. Also check to see if the box has some sort of expiry date. Some cartridges have a shelf life on only 2 years. It may have been on its way out.

Thanks for reading!
Hope this helps
