Re: Printing color pictures are streaky
The easiest way to do this if you have not got the software loaded for the printer, is open a document in word for instance, go to File>print and when the print window opens, go to properties, and see if there is a utility tab, if there is click on it and select clean nozzles.
Also have you tried looking under programs, if there is a program for your printer the maintenance tools should be there

If you have tried a new toner cartridge and that didn't fix it you probably need to put in a new drum or Fuser kit. If it is really old and has had a lot of use I would consider replacing the whole printer with a new one. The fuser kit I saw listed on Amazon for this printer was half the price of a newer printer. If you do a lot of printing or this is in a business environment make sure when looking at replacements that you get one rated for the number of pages you print a month. I have had really good luck with HP and Brother laser printers.
You didn't include make and model of your printer so we can only guess.
My guess is that you don't use the printer daily or for many documents and the printhead is clogged with dried ink.
I finally got tired of cleaning printheads so often and went with a color laser printer; it costs more to run but it at least prints when told.
Hello sir; Are you using remanufacture ink cartridge? if yes, why don't try brand name cartridge, if still don't work, my suggestion go buy a new machine much save more than send to the shop for repaire.
This happened to me. It was caused by a bad "oki compatable" color cartridge. One time it ruined my drum. It was always the yellow color. Decide which cartridge is printing streaky. Remove it, bang it on the inside of a large plastic garbage can. Clean it. Reinstall it . If it still prints streaky throw it befor you ruin the drum. Replace it.
Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
I know how expensive they are I really do how old and is this printer used alot and is the colors being used alot?
Even Streaks in the full paint job that happened to me too! I went hi and lo in adobe and found that the low ink was the problem
35 and 15 geesh and photo paper lost in this mess. It was my problem and now I share it with you so the trade off yea it is all your's sorry good luck
