Question about HP DeskJet 670c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Very feint print

Suddenly my 670C has started printing very feintly when using the black cartridge. I never use color cartridge.

I have changed two black cartridges, but with no success in improving the quality of the print.

What could be wrong? Would the printer head be worn out?

Do you have a the CD ROM for installing the printer ? You can clean the printer using the instructions suggested. It will ask you to print a test page after cleaning and alignment. The CD ROM gives you all the information.

Color printing is poor-very green

Make sure all the contacts that the drums make are clean. Use a cotton bud to wipe the laser windows behind the cartridges. If still the same then change the cartridges one at a time. It sounds as though magenta is the problem one. If this does not cure then the lasers will need to come out and be cleaned internally. Not a job for the feint hearted. even us engineers shake when we have to remove them.

It will not print boldly ,it is very faint, yet I thought the ink cartridge was pretty new.It has been in storage for about 16 months though

The cartridges for these printers have a limited lifespan, the ink can dry up after a while which is the result of your feint printing. You can remove the cartridge and try cleaning the tip using a cotton bud (or q-tipp) with just a little warm water. Ensure it is dry before placing back in the printer. If you still have feint printing then alas you need a new cartridge.

We have just changed the black printer cartridge and are having trouble printing. It was very feint but now it is almost printing a light purple - the black is no where to be seen. Regards Fran

Ok are you sure that you have it set to Black & White, or Greyscale? Also ensure that you do a head clean, too. Give the cartridge a good shake up to mix up the ink. If it is purple, make sure that,that isn't the color of the "Font" that is printing... unlikely but just a thought.

Have fitted new black cartridge - is full - but printing very feint - have run clean on print head but no difference - z600 series

check menu setup and ensue that you have reset the print tone aspects run a test page to ensure all colors reconginzed, if just black the tone line should be solid. if not then there is something clogging release.
