It's probably a contamination problem but it could be mechanical.
Try this page: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/tree?c=us&journalid=6562681BAEE21456E040AE0AB6E1608F&l=en&s=gen&treeid=320898&Query=&SystemID=&ServiceTag=&contenttype=&os=&component=&lang=&doclang=&toggle=&dl=

Start by checking if the panel shows an error message (or not), then click Next.

Please clean and align the print head and clean the nozzles. Maintenance tasks in the Printer properties. I hope that the color ink cartridge is not old. If so replace it.

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

Printer will not print dut to other color cartige. being empty.


The color cartridges print text that appears black by mixing the three primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to make composite black. To achieve a realistic black, large quantities of colored ink are used. Because black cartridges use much less ink to create a similar shade of black, they print more pages in black than the color cartridge.
If the color cartridges on the printer are next to empty, you will not be able to get perfect prints at all.

Please have the cartridges replaced to do the printing jobs again.

There are 2 reasons for this either the ink is drying out nor your page settings isnt set to the correct size of the paper you are printing to.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

HP z2100 horizontal lines where the text or object are


Check for updated firmware and drivers. Also, if all your object and text or black try changing them to color and see if that helps, maybe there is something wrong with your black printhead, the black may not be used when printing photos, the printer may be using process black for photoes and real black for black text and objects.
