Printers like that should have a cartridge head adjustment option

Windows XP:
1. click start
2. Click Printers and faxes
3. double click your printer
4. on the menu on the screen that comes up, click Printer then Properties
5. there should be a tab called maintanence, click that
6. there should be something called Print Head Alignment, click that and follow the instructions
7. if that doesnt improve anything, click on Nozzle check, it might be clogged, if this test shows that it is clogged then
8. take the neccessary steps to clean and repeat step 6

Happy computing :)

HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new


  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.


To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

I have an HP Deskjet F380 All in one Printer/Scanner/copier which is about 6months old-it has always performed perfectly but at present I`m having trouble printing photos from computer.The quality of print...


hey payne


here is a copy of your problem.

Issue The printer is working, but colors in the printed output are missing, faded, or dull in comparison to the original. Solution Step one: Check the paper Verify that the paper type is appropriate for the project. If the paper is too fibrous, the ink applied by the printer might not fully cover the print surface. Step two: Check the print settings
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Verify that your printer is selected and then click Properties . The printer Properties dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. In the What do you want to do? menu, select a task. The What do you want to do? menu lists most printing needs, but you might need to modify some of the options. Options on the Printing Shortcuts tab include:
    • Print quality: If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type: If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, choose it rather than Automatic.
    • Paper size: Make sure this matches your paper.
    Additional options: click the Basics tab, then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens.
    • Ink volume: Adjusts the amount of ink printed on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the faster the printout will dry.
    • Dry time: Provides extra drying time for slow-drying printouts. Drag the slider to the left for less drying time, or to the right for more drying time. The printer will hold onto the printout until the dry time has elapsed.
Step three: Check the ink levels NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator will be inaccurate or unavailable.
  1. Open the Printer Toolbox .
    1. Open HP Solution Center .
    2. Click Settings .
    3. Click Print Settings .
    4. Click Printer Toolbox .
    NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab and then click Service this device .
  2. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab. Figure 1: Estimated ink levels - both cartridges low
99ac57c.gif If the steps above have not resolved the issue, print and evaluate a self-test page to determine if the cartridges or printer is causing the problem.
  1. Load the input tray with unused plain white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Cancel (c00636162.gif ) button and then press the Start Copy Color (c00636190.gif ) button.
  3. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.
Step five: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the self-test page You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the self-test page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem. However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different self-test page patterns. Your self-test page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed. Step six: Look for defects In general, if the printer and print cartridges are working properly, the patterns (which look like grids of lines) should contain few or no missing lines. None of the colors should be missing and the colors of the blocks at the bottom of the page should match the labels below each block. Also, there should be no streaks of ink on the report. Missing lines or streaked bars If a pattern shows more than a few missing lines, or a bar is streaked, that print cartridge is not functioning properly. Figure 4: The magenta pattern shows missing lines and the bar is streaked 7e505a5.gif

I have a 3800n that the print quality is very poor-meaning the background is gray streaks where the paper should be the only thing you see. Making the paper look dirty. hope that explains things. this...


You can try changing the print density under print quality in the control panel. YOu can also check the reset to factory default and see if this helps. It could need what is called a maintenance kit where the fuser and rollers are replaced. I install these all the time and sounds like this is what you need.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Step 2 - Check the printer settings
      1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print The Print window opens.Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties .The Preferences/Properties window opens.Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.

Consider changing the following option:Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left.

Black ink problem with printout on hp7780


Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00841890&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c00841890/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=2512010

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

Color cartridge problem


The first thing I thought of when I read your message, was whether or not your replacement cartridges were produced by HP or by another company. Also, was it a brand new cartridge or a refill? While buying ink cartridges from another vendor or "recycled" cartridges may save a buck or two, you can't always rely on the quality of the printouts they produce. If this is the case, try using an HP color ink cartridge and see if that produces better print quality.

If you are using HP ink cartridges, there might be an issue with the contact between the cartridge and carriage. It's an electrical connection and if the contacts get dirty, it can affect print quality...sometimes drastically.

Unfortunately, HP.com doesn't have a web page dedicated just to cleaning these contacts. Fortunately, they included those instructions in the following document:

Replacing the Print Cartridges

When the web page opens, scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate the task, "Fixing error messages that appear after changing a cartridge". This will contain instructions on how to clean those contacts. See if this helps.

If all else fails, try going to the following web page:

Correcting Print Quality Problems

This is sort of a "catch all" web page with a large collection of print quality diagnostic and repair techniques. If you've gotten this far wtihout a solution, perhaps something on this page will help.

Good luck.
