Prints blurry every other line with black color

Our 7410 had a huge amount of black ink leaked underneath the cartridges. It had started printing blurry. We cleaned it out, and after cleaning it now prints blurry every other line with black ink, but red, blue etc print clear. Why??

    Prints blurry (ghosting) text on only half the page. Smears to the right.. ghosting area is not consistent on each page printed. Does not ghost if I print with black ink cartridge only. Ghosting started all of a sudden, didn't just change ink cartridge, but I have since it started to see if it would do the trick.. I have realigned cartridges since, and cleaned the clear plastic strip (encoder strip i think) any suggestions?

    cleaned print heads - it printed six colored boxes on a paper - no black. Told it to calibrate & it printed some lines of different shades of blue and some red/orange arrow & "important" at bottom of sheet - still no black. Will not print a letter, although it acts like it's printing, but no ink.

Hi,

Is it the ink cartridge contacts you already cleaned? If so, then you can also clean it using the tools menu from the printer panel:

-press setup menu, then go to tools
-select clean print cartridge and press ok
-it will print a test page. If the printout is good, you can try printing again.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

    If the above suggestion does not help, and the leaking continues, then you may have to replace the ink and the printer.



    If you are using genuine HP cartridge and never used refilled ink. The ink leakage may have damaged the printer.



    Goodluck!

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One Inkjet Printer is doing the following: 1) It prints in color even when the document is black and white (using up the color ink) 2) It prints much more slowly than it did...


go into your driver and change your color preferences to black and white. that way when you want to print color you actually have to tell it to do so. which will save your color ink, and will print much faster. full color printing of a black and white document uses all ink colors except black to make what is called process black.

My copy prints come out blurry after changing ink cartiges


Try this:
Checking the print quality:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY and press Menu/Set or Set.
  4. Press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet.
  5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality needs improvement.
  6. Closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
    If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and press Stop/Exit.
    If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
  7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
  8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
    Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
  9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.
  10. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repeat the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
Setting the Alignment:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key to select ALIGNMENT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  4. Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Alignment Check Sheet.
  5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the alignment needs adjustment.
  6. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Alignment Check Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1 (YES).
    If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.
  7. Press Stop/Exit.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please RATE it.
    Thanks, Joe

Epson Stylus CX5000 blurry or smudged printing


epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.

do the following

change the paper and try.

As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.

this should solve your problem

Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.
