I have set all the settings to photo paper the size and when you print off the pictures....they come out wet and smudged like the ink was poured on the photo paper. i've done all the checks and it still prints the same way. When printing text material it comes out fine...help

Check that the photo size you chose in the printing software is set to 5 x 7 and that the paper size is compatible to print a 5 x 7 or smaller photo, and that the correct actual paper size has also been selected.
(1) Most photopaper is made to be printed on one side only. Check to see that you are printing on the correct side.
(2) You mention new cartridges. Are they the same brand as cartridges you've used before? If they're a different brand, you may want to try whatever worked before.
Sorry but your question seems to be unclear.
Here are the solutions that I see:
- try fixing the orientation of your paper on the printer:
-- go to printer "properties" then select "paper" then set it to
landscape or portrait. You might just have to cut the extra
- try changing the paper size on the printer "properties" if it has
no 4x6 then choose "custom size"
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
The HP printer was prepared to use HP's photo paper to print borderless pictures among other things. If you use a third party photo paper, try using A4 size, position the picture in the paper using MS Word or another WYSIWYG program and, after printing, cut the picture in the right size.
