Text is "ghosting" when using card stock

I put in a new ink cartridge recently and when I run card stock through it it is printing the text multiple times -"ghosting" as I put it. The extra print is lighter than what it is suppose to be. Before I put the new cartridge in it was printing this card stock with now problem, help!

I sort of solved my ghosting problem by selecting print, set up, and then under media type selected thicker paper. This apparently pulls the card stock through at a slower rate which helped tremendously. One of my documents turned out perfect and the other "ghosted" just a little.

It looks to me that your non Canon cartridge has blocked the print head. I see this all the time. Remember the compatables are not pigment based but just watered down ink so you can get it to flow through a syringe into the cartridge. This however is the classic outcome of trying to save a few pennies on an expensive bit of kit!

There may be some dust on the contact on the printer, first thing you should do is get a q-tip and clean the contacts carefully to ensure there is no dust or other contaminants on the contacts where the cartridge connects.
Also please could you supply the printers make and model so I can look into this further

Have you tried printing text in different colour if that works the black jets are blocked- try running the cleaning cycle to clear (it may not use black ink in graphics)

Sounds like a bad drum on the cartridge. Contact HP, and they will probably replace it free, or maybe help you to troubleshoot.

Problem with Canon MP730


hi, i was having the exact same problem with my printer. and i also tried reinstalling the driver. after reading your post i decided to see if the printing problem occurred when i used the other colors, and it looks like it's only a problem with the black ink. i printed out a sheet with the text in red and another in blue and they came out perfectly. but the black grid that surrounded the blue text, still looked problematic.

so... that means that the black ink is the problem. i haven't tried putting in a new cartridge. did you say that your problem occurred after you put in a new black cartridge, or did you try putting in a new black cartridge and you still had the same problem?

PIXMA MP500


The number 5 is a Pigment text black while the number 8 is a dye photo black. The text black is for black text mainly and the photo black is for use when printing photos. Since the text black is always running out it means you are printing a lot of documents in plain paper mode.

I recommend using QUALITY refill ink like Hobbicolors which is sold on eBay and will save you a bundle of money. The MP830 is a 5 ink printer so you need the 5 ink kit like the IP4300.

Printer prints in color but has gaps


Have you tried a new colour cartridge? This is a classic sign that the cartridge may be low on ink. When printing text, assuming you are printing black, it is likely that the black cart is doing most of the work so the gaps are insignificant. You could try printing text in several different colours. If the colour cartridge is low, you'll find that some colours may be ok but others may have gaps.

Best to try a new cart if you have one.
