Question about HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I HAVE A HP DESKJET 940C PRINTER. BLACK PRINTING PROBLEMS.

I USE REFILLED AFTERMARKET CARTRIDGES. PRINTING BLACK AND COLORS FADED IN AND OUT. CHANGED BLACK CARTRIDGES 4 TIMES AND CHANGED COLOR CARTRIDGE. PRIMED, CLEANED, ALIGNED AT LEAST 5 TIMES.

PRINTED TEST PAGE, LOOKS OK BUT, TOP OF "HP DESKJET" LETTERING LOOKS LIGHT. (BLACK LETTERS)

PRINTED PERSONAL WORD FILE IN BLACK. PRINTING AT TOP OF PAGE GRADUATES FROM NON-EXISTENT TO DARKER AND NORMAL AT ABOUT 1/3 DOWN FROM THE TOP OF THE PAGE.

CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG AND NEED HELP OF PERSON WHO KNOWS.

THANKS,

DEAN

    KEEPITSIMPLE,



    IN REPLY:



    I RAN A 5 PAGE FILE IN WORD.



    FIRST PAGE RUNS LIGHT AT TOP OF PAGE & REST OF PAGE IS UNEVEN IN THICKNESS/LIGHTER/DARKER.



    2ND PAGE UNEVEN. SOME LINES APPEAR WITH WHITE LINE (LACK OF INK) HORIZONTALLY ACROSS WHOLE SENTENCE.



    REST OF DOCUMENT PAGES, MIX OF UNEVEN (LIGHTER & DARKER SENTENCES) WITH SOME SENTENCES CONTAINING WHITE LINE (LACK OF INK) THROUGH ENTIRE SENTENCE.



    IF IT IS THE DIRTY GUNK SCENARIO, HOW DO I LOCATE AND CLEAN.



    THANKS FOR YOU INITIAL RESPONCE.

    If you sent a job with several pages does each page show the same graduation, or is it on the first page only, if so then this sounds like the heads are not parking over print head parking, and drying out, or their is build up on dryed in (like a dirty gunk) that could be blocking the heads. I would also recommend fitting brand new genuine hp cartridges, to see if that resolves the problems.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
