Print at a higher resolution. Not ideal - but if you print at a photo or photo RPM mode the printer will make more passes over the sheet... If this doesn't work, consider updating your drivers.

Do nozzle check. Is it perfect? If only one or two nozzle missing, it must be "good result" in photo quality mode printing. But if, there is too much nozzle missing, result is no good. If nozzle check is perfect, but the result is not satisfied, check the PF scale and PF scale sensor.

Try to print without high speed. If it's ok, you need to head alignment both black and colour.

Have you set the paper size correctly? If you try to print on A4 and the printer is set to "letter" - which is the default for a number of printers. Also check that "Borderless" is selected in the driver.

Printing options have disappeared (re plain paper; glossy paper; CD etc)


here is ur fix

The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.
