Question about HP DeskJet 3325 InkJet Printer
I justed used a refill kit to refill the black ink.The text was blurred and looked as though it was running out.Filled the cartridge and did a test print after running through the auto cleaning.The test print looked good.The black text printed fine.Then tried to print a Doc. from MSword and the text is again blurred and looks like its running out of ink?! more test prints and all is ok.then back to MSword and the same problem.(tried notepad and wordpad and the same problem)Checked for latest driver too. I have the latest. any suggestion? uninstall /reinstall?
If someone has recently removed a paper jam, make sure that there's no little pieces of paper left in there that may have torn off.

I have the same problem. Cleaned the cartridge, changed it, every time I print a test page it works fine and when I print from anything else, from any application, including word, outlook, powerpoint, or notepad it doesn't work. The black looks like it is running out of ink. I tried reinstalling the driver, checking the connections, cleaning the printer itself and it still doesn't work.

The other thing that might be the problem is that the jets are cloged durring the test print you may have noticed small lines that are missing. these are th jets that need cleaning.
you could try and clan the printheads yourself. but i would sugest to take it to a cartridge refilling store like cartridge world and have them clean the print heads for you

Try to heat up the printhead of the cartridge on hot water about 90degre celsius and clean the head whit a clean soft paper (toilet paper is great and cheap) and make a clean nozle on the printer software.

Have you tried a new cartridge yet? I know it doesn't make sense at first but I suspect the cartridge has a problem and your test print isn't exercising the printer like the Word doc is. If the new cartridge works than the problem is probably poor quality ink, the hole you used to refill isn't sealed correctly or the cartridge or jets were damaged in some way.

It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at www.preclick.com. It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.

SOURCE: How do I reset the ink levels?
We have an issue of missing or replace yellow cartridge. Please feel free to contact the HP support for replacement of the printer, if the printer is in warranty status. HP would replace the printer.
