Re: print quality problem

This is probably long overdue, but I had the same problem. You need a new drum, unfortunately.

Printer will scan but doesn't print all colors when printing

Hi Donald,
  • First,make sure you're printing on original Epson cartridges.
  • If the ink cartridges are old,replace them.
  • Select BEST as the quality setting.
  • For the best print qualities,use the Epson special papers which are highly designed for the best prints.
  • Make sure you load one paper at a time.
  • You may also need to do a print head cleaning on the printer to unclog the nozzles and enable smooth ink delivery.
  • Check whether the printhead needs cleaning by,
  • Turn on the printer.
  • Load a letter size paper that is plain.
  • Press setup.
  • Then press the< or > to select maintainance.
  • Press OK.
  • On the highlighted NOZZLE CHECK option,press OK.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

Hi, im having problems with my printer and any help would be greatly appreciated, i recently replaced the colour cartridge and tried printing photos with a bad result, the colours are not clear and do not...

trying to print a few pages and see if the color change color tone, you should feel an improvement in quality. (probably the Charter will require a new roll until the ink replaces the old print head), unless felt an improvement could be to blame and cartridges must be replaced with good quality

Hi. I cant get my printer to allign. I've just replaced the black ink cartridge and when i put the allignment page inside the scanner it wont scan

Did you try to align the unit manually or with the computer?

Alignment page does not print

1 Make sure you remove the sticker and transparent tape from both print


2 Make sure the color print cartridge is secure in the left carrier and the black

print cartridge is secure in the right carrier.
3 Make sure you loaded the paper correctly and did not force the paper into
the printer.

Aligning your print cartridges without a computer

Make sure you follow the steps on the Setup sheet to complete hardware

installation. Continue with the following steps to optimize print quality.

1 Make sure you have loaded paper into the paper support, and then press

and hold Scan for three seconds. For help, see "Using the control panel"

on page 4.

An alignment page prints.

2 Place the printed alignment page onto the scanner glass.

3 Press Scan. For help, see "Using the control panel" on page 4.

Once scanning is complete, your print cartridges are aligned for optimal
print quality.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

The printer prints very slowly all of a sudden. It took over an hour to print out 4 pages. I've unplugged everything. I've cleared the print ques. Same thing is happening when I copy. Help!

If the output quality has improved greatly, you may have selected the "High" quality instead of "Normal". The front panel should give you a clue as to how to adjust.

Help please

When printing you should go to the properties dialog box and check the quality setting that your printer defaults to. You'll probably find options to print either custom, fast, standard or high - you'll probably also be give a choice of paper type to print to - photo, etc. You may or may not be able to make these settings your defaults from now on but most likely you will have to set these at the beginning of your print sessions.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking

As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards
