Faded print but ink levels are good

I just unclogged a paper jam that had been there for over a month. Now I can barely see any print. One color (yellow) is low but I have plenty of the other ink colors.

SOURCE: 0% color ink

We cannot bypass the color ink check, since the all-in-one uses little amount of even the color ink to print in black. Once check the expiry date of the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge and reinsert it again and then try to print. If the issue still persists replace the color cartridge and check for the result, if we experience the same issue even after replacing the color cartridge then the issue is with the all-in-one.

SOURCE: Standard black printing has faded to grey.

Could just be a faulty cartridge?

My hp printer developed a similar fault, and despite all my attempts to clean, realign, whatever, the problem wasn't solved till I fitted a new ink cartridge. It's worth a try.

SOURCE: i just bought a hp photosmart c3140 tri-color

I would be taking it back to the place of purchase and asking them to replace it. Or contacting HP directly with the problem.

You can contact HP via their home page of their website, or use the link below for troubleshooting and support:

NOTEs:

1. Unless you are printing a final copy of an item it is a good idea to always print in Draft Quality (to save your ink). HP Printers allow you to do this. This setting is generally within the Print window, when you select Print.

2. When you are printing a final copy then switch from DRAFT to BEST quality.

SOURCE: My printer is not printing

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It’s best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. for more information….... http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-40171-printer-not-printing-black

Only printing in black ink a top and bottom line - nothing in between - i'm thinking out of color ink


Check the ink-levels. Then, run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles", to try to unclog any ink-jets that are clogged, such that the jets are not shooting the ink onto the paper.

How to check the ink level onC4480 printer


To check the ink levels from the HP Photosmart Software
1. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click the Printer Services button.
The Printer Toolbox appears.
2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

Or

Print a self-test report
1. Load A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
The product prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
3. Make sure the test patterns show a complete grid and the thick color lines are complete.
• If more than a few lines in a pattern are broken, this might indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might need to clean the print cartridges.
• If the black line is missing, faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the black or photo print cartridge in the right slot.
• If any of the color lines are missing, faded, streaked, or show lines, this might indicate a problem with the tri-color print cartridge in the left slot.

I have a Kodak ESP-3 less than a year old. When it prints, there are bands of faded image throughout the first page and the whole page is faded as if the ink cartridge is spent (but we have replaced it...


Some (not all) of the ink-jets that spray the ink onto the paper have been clogged. Thus, what should *NOT* be WHITE on the paper remains as WHITE.

Start the Kodak Printer "utility" software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to unclog those jets.

If a few of those cycles fail to improve things, take the printer to a qualified technician, for a more-thorough cleaning.

Mac leopard -epson tx400 - printer grabs paper - printer very noisy, desk shakes with vibration - now the print on paper is faded help!!


Hello, sorry to hear you are having trouble,
So, are we to understand that your printer did not shake with vibrations and make a lot of noise before ?
Most of these ink jet printers have heads that travel very quickly and abruptly from side to side causing shaking and vibrations, especially if it is on a light weight desk or table, sometimes to the point of almost throwing itself right off the table. This is a normal state for the printer to be in.
Then, you say the paper is printed on, it goes right through to the end, no paper jam, but the colors are faded...
How often do you print on this printer ? Sometimes, the Epson print head dry up and only small amounts of ink get through even though the system indicates that the ink is full...
You can certainly perform a head cleaning operation, I recommend doing it several (3) times to be sure, unfortunately, it's a terrible wast of ink.
Finally, have you replace the ink cartridges? If you get a faded output with new cartridges, you may have inadvertently activated the ink saving or draft mode, go through you page set-up or printer option thoroughly.
I'm pretty sure something here will get you out of this mess.

COLOR NOT VIVID


The DeskJet 940c is not really the highest quality printer out there on the market. However, having said that, the printer is still capable of producing decent quality printouts. You might play with your printer settings for print intensity, lightness, ink volume.

Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/Epson/K89

The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

Thanks for reading!
