HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft

WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.

How to enlarge scanned photo.

Set your scanner to scan at 600dpi.  That will give you a 8x12 image at 300dpi (print quality- your image never needs to be more than 300dpi).

Then use your favourite image editor to crop the image to 8x10.  If you don't have a favourite image editor, XNView (free) will do it:

-Open the image in XNView
-Right click on the image, select "Set Selection Ratio --> 5:4"
-With your left mouse button, drag a square on the image...this will automatically scale so it chops the unwanted 2" off
-When the square is selecting the bit you want to keep, select "Edit --> Crop"
-Then we need to change the image from 600dpi to 300 dpi:
-Select "Image --> Resize"
-Uncheck the "Resample" and "Keep print size"
-"Keep ratio" should be checked
-Change the 600 in the "Units" box to 300; the setting unit should be "Pixels per Inch"

My printer is hp 2418 it is given print is very slow . so what to do

Adjust the Quality Settings for your printer.

Reduce the quality.

If it's on Best/Maximum Quality, Then change it to Normal or Draft.

That will speed it up, although it will accordingly reduce print quality, as well as amount of ink used per page.

When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.

Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.
  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.


  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.


    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.

Setting HP OfficeJet 4315 print preferences on a MAC OS X

Whenever you send a file to print from a program a small window shows up. If it shows only
Printer: Drop down menu ARROW Presets: Drop down menu Some buttons at the bottom
then click on the ARROW pointing down for more options. That will show more info, including a drop down menu that will allow you to change page settings, printing settings, etc. For example, if you want to change the printing quality, select "Paper Type/Quality" from that drop down menu and new options will show up allowing you to change the settings of the printer.
