Officejet 4500 printing problems

The printer is printing a combination of blurred text, choppy text and gibberish. It worked fine the day before. The cartridges have been changed, didn't fix the problem. It prints this way from both the desktop (wired) and laptop (wireless), even when printing an info sheet from the printer itself without a computer connected.

    I have also uninstalled the printer and reinstalled using the updated software on the HP site.

SOURCE: Printer will not print black ink

Chewbacca08's solution gave me an idea. I set the print setting to photos paper (even though I was trying to print on plain paper) and IT WORKED. It's worth a shot before you trash a perfectly good printer.

SOURCE: Printer will not print black ink

I had the same problem. My color cartridges printed fine, but the black did not print -- just blank. I called Cartridge World and they suggested the problem could be a clogged line. They recommended a nozzle rocket cartridge, sort of a "Drano" for print cartridges. I brought in my black cartridge and they dumped the black ink and filled it with a cleaning solution (at no cost). I placed this back into the printer and proceeded to start printing multiple pages in black in order to allow the solution to move through the lines and break up any clogs. It took about 30 pages, but the light gray color finally began to come through (it should look light gray, not black). I was told to try and use the entire cartridge before replacing with a regular black ink cartridge. Worked great!

SOURCE: Printer only won't print in black

My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.

I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

Vista has died, so you won't get updates. You could install Linux to get a modern operating system. The drivers are included. However, the problem might be in the printer since it's intermittent. It picks up a glitch and from there on it's all gibberish. Try wireless and see if that works.

Gibberish sounds to me that ether one of two things is going on.

1. the printer was never allighned when the new cartridges where put in.

2. Depending on the gibberish its printing it could be a communication error with the driver on the computer.

Do not pitch the printer but get help for it like you are doing now! But I would have taken a chat from us to see what the gibberish is!

Prints Gibberish, not the Text - Epson Stylus 460


This is usually due to a corrupted driver. To fix this uninstall the printer using the Windows uninstall software facility on the Control Panel (I am presuming it's a Windows system, if not use the uninstall facility of your OS). Reboot the computer then re-install the printer. If you need more help with the uninstall/re-install processes, report back.

Lines of text are blurred or jagged


Hey, Matthew here. If you go in to the settings of the printer and then advancd, there should be a head alingment options- it will print out some pages with crooked and straight lines and ask you to pick ones to calibrate it. It is very easy and should only take 5mins. Hope this helps, Matt.
