Question about HP Photosmart D7260 Printer

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart suddenly started blobbing out ink.

One picture printed fine, then suddenly the next seemed to put excessive ink on the photo paper, leaving a distorted picture. The ink is so heavy that it never dries and leaves spots of ink on my fingers when I pick it up hours later. The printing time shows 2:30 at first and then 1:00 before it starts printing.

Normal 0 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

How do I print photos from my cd using hp Photosmart plus?


Don't Connect the printer. First use the cd to install the software for your printer. in the software is a program called print photos or print pictures. After installing the software, connect the printer and switch it on. Start the software and a menus should guide you trough he straps to choose and print the pictures you want to print. Be aware you need to setup things once the program is running, like how big the pictures should be. Don't make them bigger than the paper you insert. Also what kind of paper you use, like plane paper, or photo paper, matte or glossy.

The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

Check to make sure all of your contacts are clean. The part where the cartridge meets the printer. Also check to make sure you have it set in the printer properties for photo quality paper. If this still doesn't work, I would suggest trying a different brand of paper, it may be the problem with the paper manufacturer.

If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.

Photo printing


What program are you using to print out photos?
Try to take the ink cartridge out and put it back in.
Go to this link, instructions on how to replace ink cartridges
http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/cx66__/cx66__pg.pdf
And then try to print. If you have the same problem, try to use another program that you can print pictures from.
