The problem is not with your printer, rather with the printer driver on your pc. Uninstall the driver and reinstall from scratch. if this does not fix your issues, your pc operating system is corrupted and will need to be repaired.

Does the print fade out or is the printed page complete, just cropped down?
If it is fading out then it is the cartridges running dry, or refilled using the incorrect ink.
If it is printing the entire document, just smaller, then under printer properties you can set the page size. (control panel - printers and faxes - right click your printer and select printing preferences)
I hope this helps
Hi, Make sure you use the correct paper type. For example if you want to print on A4 paper then the printer must be set to A4. To see this, go to Start- > Control Panel -> Printers and faxes. Right click on your printer and choose Printing Preferences. Then go to paper type and set it to A4.
If you are printing through Outlook, double click to open the message and then select File->Print (don't use the print icon directly from the toolbar). Then, on the print dialog click Preferences, and see if the paper is set to A4.
Ok, I was having this same problem and the solution for me appears to lay in the fact that the "photo tray" was pushed in, signaling to the printer that it should print to the size specifications of a photo (approximately half the width of a standard letter page).
I should also mention that with my problem, the printer would hang at every single print job--presumably to wait for you to input your photo paper--and that executing this fix solved the problem.
To fix this, I followed these instructions:
SOLUTION:Follow the steps below to correct the issue:
Disconnect power to the printer.
Remove all photo paper from the Photo Tray.
Push the Photo Tray completely into the printer.
Snap the Photo Tray out (towards you) sharply.
Reconnect power to the printer.
Print a self-test on 8.5 X 10 paper.
Engage the Photo Tray.
From the Printer Toolbox, select Calibrate the Photo Tray .

This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
