    1. Closely examine the Print Quality Check Sheet. Each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.

    Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


    Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

    We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have


    nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

    Brother mfc 5840 won't print clearly


    you need to check the maintainence kit and see if it's full. Also if it isn't, use some iso-proponal alcohol and some q-tips to clean the print section of the cartridge and the cartridge tray.

    Fuzzy ink


    probably dirty or broken print head. suggest you replace it or get new blue cartridge if your machine has seperate colour cartridges.

    Poor print quality


    im sure your familiar doing the head cleaning from the computer / driver at least 3x consecutively

    and still the issue persists, hardware problem

    printer needs service / this might come handy : http://www.epson.com/loyalty
