Is this problem with all printing, regardless of font? If so, then you might see if your ribbon has excessive ink on it. Or, check your printhead for ink deposit buildup. Sometimes the printhead can be removed via 2 screws. Use rubbing alcohol, or some other cleaner (electronic contact cleaner etc). This can be a messy, inky job, so don't wear good clothes doing this. Protective gloves will help keep hands clean... Lastly, though a blotting symptoms doesn't fit, your printhead might have one or more broken pins (these are tiny wirelike which strike the ribbon, placing a dot on the paper). If any are broken, that particular dot will be missing from each letter, and may make some characters unrecognizeable.

Have you tried running the cleaning utility and alignment utility? Look in the "properties" section of the printer, under "advanced". you should see it.

How do I increase the font size on my hp printer when printing from my computer


The font size is usually controlled by the properties of the page you are trying to print. Try increasing the size of the font on the file.

Make font larger on HP1510 printer


What font are you referring to? Have you prepared a document in a word processing program, or added text to an image file, and are disappointed because you want to see the text printed larger? If so, your best solution is to edit the document or image and change to a larger text size. For example, most text documents will normally default to either a size 10 or 11 text which is readable but small. Changing to size 12 or 14 will make the text look larger onscreen, and the text will also print larger. The font name and font size should be displayed on one of your processing program's toolbars, and is easily changed to a different font name or size. If you are simply copying an already printed document and want the text to appear larger, you should refer to your printer's User Guide.

Increase font size on printed matter, i.e., emails, etc.


Go to your printer,right click on printer and go to Preferences, make sure you are using Letter size of 8.50x11.00. Under your paper quality print documents on 8.50x11.00 (scale to fit).

On IE go to view click Text size and select from smallest to largest text.
To change the Font size in IE go to control panel, open the display-open the appearance tab and change the font size.

How do i increase print size


Your font and font size are set up in word. Depinding what version of word you are useing as to where this option is. If you look at the top of word screen, you should see a box that lists the font and font size. If you can't find it, go to help and type change font size and it will walk you through how to change your font size.

How do i change font size on HP 6110 xi printer


The manual doesn't list scaleable font size as a feature. You will probably have to set your font size in the document you are making.

Font size on printed copis different than shown on incoming email


Just maybe it is the size of the original e-mail and your monitor makes it appear larger. The way  that I do it is to copy and past the email into a word processor,like WORD, then set the type font to the size that I want before printing, then print from that file

Ink blots deposit onto feed rollers which in turn transfers to all new prints


Most likely you have a leaking print cartridge (toner cartridge). Does it have the same problem if you use the Manual Bypass tray?

It could also be a worn fuser sleeve that is causing the print defect...the fuser would need replaced in that case.
