Photos print fine on plain white paper. Pictures are clear but have faint horizontal lines when using glossy printer paper.
Any solutions?

    This often indicates that your cartridges are low or the nozzles are restricted. If you have new cartridges and still have the problem, you'll probably need to experiment with the quality and paper settings.

It occurred to me when I was reading your post that photo paper has printing and non-printing sides. If the paper is loaded upside down, it's printing on the non-print side, which would result in what you're seeing. It's just a hunch, but you might want to consider it.

HP.com has a web page that will walk you through the process of checking on this and other potential problems.

Checking image quality problems

Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Oops. I read too fast. Thought you were talking about photo paper and not glossy paper. Still, you might want to check both sides and see if they're different.



    The other thing that popped into my head after I posted my original comment was that not all paper types are supported by all printers. It's possible that this type of glossy paper wasn't meant to be used with this printer.

Hi

Did you try to calibrate on the same media what you want to print?

Try to delete any other calibrations stored. And re-calibrate the plotter on the same media or a plain paper.

Photo,s from printer come out greenish,it,s a HP c7180 photosmart !! self test diagnostic shows white stripes in Magenta ?heads have been cleaned


Don't have a solution, but a similar problem and maybe a work around. My prints on glossy paper come out with a strong red tinge if glossy paper is specified. Seems to work all right if plain paper is specified with glossy paper in tray. Was on chat and email and phone support with HP for about two days. Went through all tests and resets with them. No solution from them except an offer of a refurbished Model 309 for $200. It was on sale at Costco for $169 that same day. I didn't buy it as it is missing features on the C7180.

Note the extended self test shows the light magenta ink is not printing - but it does use ink and the ink drop counter shows it is using ink.

Try specifying plain paper when you print on glossy. Maybe our problems are related?

My printer has problems printing dark colours. When printing pictures or text, it leaves horizontal lines on black only. I have a continuis ink system which has lots of black. Any ideas?


Try changing the print paper type to something other than plain paper. Use the matte paper setting, or the photo glossy. The printer will lay down more ink at these specialty settings.

Horizontal lines on pictures


I was using the wrong setting for the print properties. I had it set for "plain paper" - when I re-set for "premium glossy" and altered the quality to "high" - cured the problem and the printer is excellent - every detail. Thanks for your reply
