OfficeJet G85 Makes Unreadable Copies

Everything else works great. It even makes the copies, but the print is so faint it cannot be read. I've tried phtzing with all the settings, but no change. Even with the darkest setting, the output is way-pale.

Printing from the fax and from the computer works great.

This was a gift from a friend, so it was carried in a box, twice.

Usually, it's the print cartridge. I recently installed a new black cartridge on a 6110 printer and it, too, was very faint in printing. It turned out to be "dried up", even though it was a new cartridge in a sealed bag (but purchased in 2005).

Imageclass mf4690 has streaks in copies

Several possibilities: if copying using the ADF - clean the glass under the ADF feed. If a print is the same as a copy - check the toner cartridge. This type of cartridge collects heaps of junk in the waste chamber which interferes with the print when nearly empty. If neither of those - dust on the imaging scanner = refer to service dude.

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.

If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

Make sure this printer is selected as the default printer. Check printer preferences to make sure all settings are correct then try printing a test page using the windows software. Hope this helps.

Recieving fax no printout, all other printing processes ok

When you say all other printing processes are ok, I am assuming you can make copies and print from the computer. If so...then are the blank faxes coming from several different fax machines or are they coming from one particular fax machine. If one particular fax machine, then the problem is probably on their end. I need to go backwards a second....when you receive a fax does the machine spit out a blank page or no paper is fed at just receives the fax? Is the machine programmed to just receive faxes to memory to be printed out later? It doesn't make sense for it to print or copy but not to print a fax. If problem persist try a different fax modem.
