Hi,
You have a dirty print cartridge. Replace it with a new one, then reset your printer by unplugging both wires from the rear, wait 60 seconds, then plug them back in. Then it may ask if you want to print a test page. Go ahead and do it. I hope this helps.

The printing is blurred


Blurred print may be caused by a dirty print-head - remove and wash with clean warm water. Dry with paper towel and retry.

Blurred print may also be caused by a print-head alignment fault. First check that there are no paper fragments at either end of the print path inside the machine. Then go to the maintenance section either on the printer or in the computer printers folder and perform a nozzle check, print head clean and print alignment. in that order

The print is readable but blurred, looks smudged and prints pictures blurred too.


Align the print cartridges after installing them to improve print quality. To do this:




1. Load plain paper.

2. Open the Lexmark Solution Center.

3. From the Maintenance tab, click Align to fix blurry edges.

4. Click Print.

Hope that helps.

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blurred pictures


ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

You need to conduct the following steps:
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
The nozzle check pattern shows if each print head nozzle is operating properly.

You can also print the nozzle check pattern from your computer.
  1. Load A4- or letter-size plain paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) or cassette.
  2. Press <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source.
  3. In either COPY, PHOTO, or FILM menu screen, press <Menu> button.
  4. Press the left or right arrow to select [Maintenance/Settings], then press <OK>.
  5. Use left or right arrow to select [Maintenance] and press <OK>.
  6. Use up or down arrow to select [Nozzle Check] and press <OK>.
  7. When prompted to print a nozzle check pattern, use the up arrow to select [Yes] and then press <OK>.
    The machine prints a nozzle check pattern
Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing
If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.
MEMO:
a. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.
b. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.
  1. In either COPY, PHOTO, or FILM menu screen, press <Menu> button.
  2. Press the left or right arrow to select [Maintenance/Settings], then press <OK>.
  3. Use left or right arrow to select [Maintenance] and press <OK>.
  4. Use up or down arrow to select [Print Head Cleaning] or [Head Deep Cleaning] as necessary and then press <OK>.
When prompted to clean the print head, use the up arrow to select [Yes and then press <OK>.

IMPORTANT:
If normal print head cleaning does not improve print quality, perform deep print head cleaning.
Print Head Alignment in Windows
If colors mix or streaks appear in the nozzle check pattern, perform the print head alignment.
The print head alignment can be performed either automatically or manually.
If the automatic print head alignment does not resolve the problem, perform the print head alignment manually.

Printing blurred


H'mmm - new one on me , and I'm ***** old. If it was all blurred I would blame a faulty capacitor on the main board putting noise on the line - but the first inch? Check the track (where the print head travels along) and make sure there is nothing to cause the paper to be a bit low at the left end. Report back on what you find.
