Question about HP DeskJet 460WF Mobile Color Printer

1 Answer

Blurred bands in prints

My HP Deskjet 460 has been used very little even though it is over a year old (50 pages printed). When printing horizontal pages there are evenly spaced blurred areas in the text, approximately 1 inch apart. Upon close inspection it appears that the letters are being printed more than once, very close to each other, causing a general blurry effect. This also happens in verticle layouts, but to a much less degree. The text between these bands is sharp. I have cleaned the print cartridges, and the contacts. I have also alligned the print heads. My best guess is that it might be a paper feed problem--it happens with various types of paper--since it appears that the paper must be moving ahead in order to cause the double image effect. HP has not been able to suggest a fix. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Try changing ink cartridge. Print only "grayscale" and if that happens, you need a black cartridge changed. If, not color

SOURCE: Incompatible ink cartridge(s) ERROR on HP 4230 All-in-on printer

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. This can be done by going to the Add and Remove programs, this is located under the Control Panel. You may have to reboot and I would recommend that you do. This will clear out the Print Spooler. The Print Spooler is located under the C Drive and may get corrupted. You can find information about this in Google. Look for repairing spooler on the OS that you are using.

SOURCE: printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color

Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Could be down to dirt contamination in the laser scanner

SOURCE: hp color laserjet 1600 copies have a blurred image

This sounds like a registration problem.

Use the menu (on the printer) to print antest page AND a configuration/information page.

Look (critically) at the alignment of the seperate coloure Yellow Magenta Cyan. You will probably find that these are out of aligmnent across the page.

The cause of this, is that the printer can't perform a calibration properly (printer probably takes a long time when calibrating too) and is usually down to failure of one of the sensors on the transfer belt.

Sometimes you can clean these and solve the problem, but often is a failure of the component itself. Thes are NOT available as a spare part, and the repair to correct this would need a replacement transfer belt.

Transfer belt replacement in this printer is quite an involved task, though it is within the capabilities of someone with reasonable mechanical aptitude.

Color cartridge runs out even though I'm only printing b&w typed scripts. Any way to shut it off? Only have use for color printing once in a blue moon Hewlett Packard HP DeskJet Printer #932C


Even though you print a b/w document... unless you say 'black cartridge only' in your printing preferences, all the colors get used.

Find 'black cartridge only' in your printing preferences, or 'print in greyscale' and then print your document. You must specify this for your printer to know that it must use the black only.

When I first print a page of text, it comes out all faded--like when the cartridge is empty, even though I just had the cartridge refilled. When I print the same page again, the text becomes a little...


Ok two things here, the slides need wiping with a cloth, even use a small amount of sewing machine oil on cloth ( SMALL AMOUNT I SAID) then run the machine in cleaning mode and also check the print mode this is in the printer queue module under tools or maintenace.

Slow and blank printing


sounds like clogged print heads. do a clean print heads, then a test page, and see how that goes. Like a sink that gets clogged, when it's not used, print heads need exercise, otherwise, they can get some gunk on them, and no more printing.
