Prints documents but there is a grey hue on all the pages

The printer was packed and moved and has not been used for a several months. I brought the printer to my office to hook up at work. It prints okay but it also prints so the papaer has a grey hue from top to bottom.

You might try changing the toner cartridge. While you have the toner drum cartridge out, clean the carona wire by moving the blue tab on the drum to the left and right several times. Be sure to store the tab all the way to the left before you reinsert the drum/toner cartridge assembly.

LaserJet 5Si printing slow use to be able to hit the print key then the printer would fire away. seems like the printer pauses between pages then prints maybe 3 to 4 pages per minute


Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

Printing 'bookfold' documents


Does the print queue show that all the pages have been sent to the printer. Check the print screen to make sure that either page 1 or print current page are not checked. This type of problem is generally caused by the printing application rather than the printer.

Scan views fine; prints fuzzy


Try to change the dpi to the maximum, maybe 600 dpi. This will make the picture more defined.

Printing on the same line after a few pages printed


I first oiled the bar once more and while the printer was off, moved the head across the bar forcefully several times until it felt the ease to move. I then typed a document with numbers 1 to 10 each number typed two lines below the other and tried printing this document several times. This worked perfectly and the printer is now in order.

Epson CX3650 Printing Only half a page


This may sound nutty, but I have an epson stylus cx3650, with the same INFURIATING problem. And I think I *may* have just fixed it. and its daft, and simple, but we all know how picky printers can be!

Okay, the paperfeed at the top, on the left hand side is a grey slide, (right in the printer) to hold the paper in place. USE IT to keep the paper straight, it seems, if the paper goes in straight, the whole page is printed. I don't know how or why but it worked for me! ^^ (and this is after the printer was stored in a cupboard for a year, because of this problem!)
