Question about HP LaserJet CM1015 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

CM 1015 has hazy background.

My printer has a hazy looking gray to purple background on all prints, copies, and reports. Even test engine button shows the same. Swapped with new toner carts, no change. Is there a adjustment of some sort?

    Mine is doing that too....the background on everything I print is "dirty" looking with gray all over it

  • doppberg Feb 28, 2009

    not hazy, but photos I print in the past few months (most processed in Photoshop, including grayscale), print with greenish cast on the left side and oversaturated red through the middle. Regular black-only text documents are fine. Installed all new cartridges a few weeks ago with no change. Problem only getting worse.

Have you tried the cleaning Mode, accessible from the control panel? Press 'Menu', then cycle through the options using the arrow keys until you reach 'Main Menu Service'. Press 'OK' This will show 'Cleaning Mode' . Press 'OK' and the printer should start cleaning. Ensure there is a sheet of clean paper in the input tray before you begin.

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards

It takes 30 minutes to print a page


Press and release OK and CANCEL buttons on the unit and release. This will print a self test report. Check the timing. It should not take more than a minute to print a self test page. If it does, please let me know.

Prints photos with yellow horizontal stripes.Hv downloaded HP printing diagnostic utility and no errors were reported. If just using scanner to copy photos, prints fine but copying photos in library p


go into the printer and do a test print. start>printer & faxes>right click on the printer in question>properties>printer preference button> test print ... try the printer's own test print. This is usually caused by a poor print head, low ink, poor cartridge or the need for calibration. Look in the maintenance tab in the printer properties for head cleaner, jet cleaner etc. This also happens with refill ink cartridges.

Hi,

if you have a laser printer you may need to clean the printer or install a new drum cartridge, if it is ink-jet you will have to clean the bottom of the ink cradle it sound like you getting grey background from a toner/drum cartridge.

PSC1510 & Vista problem


The problem cannot BE solved. It's yet ANOTHER Vista screw-up.

Original Problem:

"No matter what I try - every page from Jarte prints out with an UNWANTED gray
background.
This does not always happen when I print from the web, make copies or print from
Microsoft Word. I ran diagnostics on my printer HP PSC1510 and it's fine.
Test pages print ok, too.
Please help - I had Jarte on my last laptop (Windows XP), it worked very well
and I liked it much better than MS Word."

I emailed Jarte Tech support and got the following answer:

"The problem you encountered is a bug in Windows Vista. You will see the same problem when using WordPad on Windows Vista. As you have noticed, not all programs are affected by the bug. The problem is occurring because you are using a Windows color scheme that uses a gray background color for text windows. Unfortunately, the only work around is to specify white as the background color to use for text windows. Hopefully, Microsoft will correct the problem in a future Windows Vista service pack."
