Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My printer is printing faded looking documents. The black is grey with white lines going through it and the colors are very dull. I thought it was due to low ink, so I went out and purchased new ink and it is still doing the same thing. I have tried the maintenence, and Nothing changed. I have only had the printer for about 4 months.

It is possable it needs a head clean. what make and model is it.
If the clean has failed to wirk, it might be that the head is faulty.
Are you using genuine ink cartridges, if not this could be the reason why.

All my colored prints have 2 one inch strips of faded color. What do I need to do?


First tray printing a black and white copy to see if you get same quality problem then try each individual color. If it shows on each copy then check The transfer belt Assy . If it only shows on one color then would be a drum unit or could be toner on laser shield glass . Other thing stop it during copying process and see where it's coming from look at drums and see if that shows up on them

How do you fix the colour printing grey instead of black


Do you need to change out your black color cartridge? Check your ink levels to make sure that you have plenty of each color. Also, check the settings for your printer (perhaps under "properties") and make sure that you haven't clicked on "grey scale". I hope that this helps.

Panasonic Printer prints wrong colour. The documents have grey letters, but the printer prints them black!


It is possible that printer setting is set to print in black and white instead of color. You will only be able to see the gray color when printer is set to print in color.
Assuming you are using windows 7 go to Devices and printers, right click on your printer, go to properties and change the settings.

For any further clarification feel free to revert.

My HP 3550 won't print black when it is out of a color.


restore the properties.... set as "print in grey scale" or "print color as b/w images"...
also if the print become less or more dark you can change the settings to print whit more intensity or less...
there is no necesary change all your documents as "watter ink" only change the print options to fade to black

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

Dull, faded colors when printing


You probably need to replace the transfer belt. Go into the diagnostic menu and perform a half-test. Open the printer and see if the document looks right before it goes into the fuser. Be careful, the toner will be loose.
