    This is a laser printer not an inkjet.

    Thanks for trying, I will check to see if the printer is set for picture quality.

To get the optimum quality print for your color prints of course everything has to be set just right. On your printer installation and print menu it will ask you if you want letter quality print or picture quality, make sure that you are using the right options in this case. Also be sure that all your ink cartridges are at least half full for print purposes. God bless you

How do I print artwork getting all the colors to render accurately, so that it looks like the original painting.


Unfortunately you screen (computer or other ) isn't calibrated.
there is software mostly pro use this, but take a picture of a flat grey placard.
using your photo program to check the gamma settings and modify them until the grey on screen matches placard ( hold placard next to monitor). Then print out grey image.
important write down the gamma settings and when you put something to print check to see if these are close.

Power it down, Unplug, clear out the Printer Que on your Computer and then reboot the Equipment. IF this does not fix it, you may have to delete the printer and reinstall into your computer... IF this a Wireless Printer, ensure you clean the Que before attempting to use it.,

Won't print in color


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

I have a mf8050 color laser printer. I have had nothing but problems with this thing. I have had someone come to the house and work on it 2 times. When one problem solved another pops up. On that problem...


Usually laser printers rarely give such problems as you have described because they dont use cartridges like deskjet printers. The previous problem of connection has to do with proper networking and unless it is examined in person precise and concise tips cannot be given.
To print the document from the computer try changing the color of the text on the PC to a different color preferably a bright one and attempt to print. Usually this should work. If it prints this means that the toner is getting bad and needs replacement as some of the inks which aid the printer to mix the exact color is not available.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

We have a hpdesignjet90 and have trouble getting the same colors which we see on the screen onto 90lb watercolor paper. Particularly real bright colors. Any ideas? Windows xp


the computer screen has better dpi output then your printer no matter what. printers vary when coming in color print outs
... go to application folder for your computer, dbl click icon for make of printer, check settings, check to ensure everything is order. do a test print to clean the heads. hp has an awesome trouble shooting website, this might be the last place to check if no other answers here.
hope this helps, good luck.

Not printing in color


If the color was faded and the printing blurred, what I did was to check the nozzle pattern,align the print head and then calibrate the process. It's all in your manual. Once I completed those steps (just a few minutes), the printing was clear and the colors bright. Hope t his works for you.
