First try this :

  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
  4. IF you still get the same print ,,Please let me know what type of cart are using is it refilled ?
  5. IF the printer is making noise then it a loud noise like banging the walls of the printer check if the orange light is blinking :::
Good luck..

Make sure you're using the correct paper and check also the paper settings on your printer properties, then after that unplug the power of the router for 2 minutes and try to print again....

Sounds like you have the wrong paper setting in your print properties. I would use photo or high bright 24lb paper and set the paper type in your printer properties prior to executing the print job.

I have a HP 7590 printer and it sometimes skips line or some of the lines are faded when printing black .


Perform the following steps to reduce or eliminate faded or grainy lines:
  1. Print at a higher quality setting.
  2. Verify that the paper you are printing on will lay flat. Paper that is not laying flat can cause banding when the paper transitions over the rollers or cause the print cartridges to scrape across the surface of the page. Check the top sheet of paper by removing it from the all-in-one and placing it on a flat surface. If the paper does not lie flat, bend it in the opposite direction to straighten it. Figure 3: Faded or grainy bands in print caused by paper that is not flatc00178858.gif 1 - Faded or grainy bands due to roller transition with paper that is not flat. 2 - Faded or grainy bands due to print cartridge scrape on paper that is not flat

New Cartridges - not all color ink printing!


It sounds that the ink inside the cartridge has partly dried up.

This can happen to my printer when I don't use it for a couple of months too.

Hope this helps!

I print out the photo with glossy photo papers and the prints become so grainy , even my photo was in very high pixels taking what should i do to print a good non grainy photo


Your printer software and the program you used to print the photo have settings to turn up the quality of the printer just for photos.
I suspect you just forgot to do that

Printing pictures


If your normal print looks OK, make sure that you are printing your pictures on the correct side of the photo paper. Most photo paper will only print properly on one side. If you print on the other side, the image looks very grainy and faded, and the ink will still be quite wet when it comes out of the printer.
