Re: Double Blurry Print
Usually hairs sticking to the underside of the print head causes this.
I gave a solution to an Epson CX6400 user who needed to physically clean his print head. Look this up in the solutions. It involves using folded kitchen roll under the print head with the printer switched off and the head unlocked and free floating.
It would take me ages to type this again so please look this up.
The user had jammed paper and cleared the jam but had paper stuch to the underside of his print head.

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..
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
Replace the ink cartridge.
The cartridge is so wide that it can print 2 lines at a time, and the upper part of it is probably partially clogged. That's why every 2'nd line is blurred, and the rest is ok.
This one is too lenghty to give you here, goto lexmark.com, and in support knowledge base, search with this line...blurry, fuzzy, or double print from a lexmark x4720...There is specific info on test pages you need to run to narrow this down.
It could even be a conflict with motherboard/proccessor that can occur with some e-machines, compacs and others using certain amd chipsets
