Go into the maintenance menu and select head cleaning. Do it a couple of times and see if your images come back to normal. Most likely your problem is clogged print heads due to the printer sitting idele for a while.

Canon pixmma MG2200 printer alignment


just replaced the ink and images are faded when printed out, cleaned the ink cartridges and ran threw a cleaning sheet but still comes out faded

My black ink is really faded. I installed a new cartridge but the black ink is still the same. The color ones work great, but most of my printing is with the black ink.


Sounds like toner build up on your developer blades in the imaging unit. If the black look like this:

The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

I have a Kodak ESP-3 less than a year old. When it prints, there are bands of faded image throughout the first page and the whole page is faded as if the ink cartridge is spent (but we have replaced it...


Some (not all) of the ink-jets that spray the ink onto the paper have been clogged. Thus, what should *NOT* be WHITE on the paper remains as WHITE.

Start the Kodak Printer "utility" software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to unclog those jets.

If a few of those cycles fail to improve things, take the printer to a qualified technician, for a more-thorough cleaning.

THE QUALITY OF PRINT FROM MY SAMSUNG CLP300 HAS BECOME POOR, WITH SOME BLACK INK FADED


If the print is faded down the length of the page, then the problem lies within the imaging unit. This is a very commn problem with this printer. The developer blades get blocked by a coating of toner, which after many prints, cause a noticable fade in the image. This can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit or the blades can be cleaned. I have detail instruction in my tips section. It can be done quite easily if you are handy, and you could save yourself some money by not buying a new imaging unit.

HP officejet pro 8500 ink cartridge problem


Changing a printer cartridge is not complex but improper handling of the parts may damage the printer and the cartridge. If the user notices that while printing the ink comes out dry or faded, it may be time to change the ink or the toner. The user will know if it is time to change the toner because instead of a sharp image, one will get a faded image. It is time to change the ink cartridge when the printing comes out spotty or colors are used to replace others —for instance, blue for black or yellow for red. Remember, faded images signal the need to change the toner; spotty printing signals the need to change the ink cartridge get more help for change cartridge .
Hope this helps you.

Quality starts out good, and then fades quickly


You probably running out of black ink. Try replacing with new black ink cartridge.

Try to run a test print.

Faded stripe down the printed page


I found a solution that worked to eliminate the faded black stripe down the page thanks to a post by slamfix in another forum. The problem is related to ink build up on the blade edge of the black developer assembly in the imaging unit (the imaging unit contains 4 separate developers - yellow, blue, magenta, and black). The solution involves taking out the imaging unit, removing and cleaning the blade edge of the black ink developer until smooth. It took me about 15 minutes to complete and was fairly straightforward.

I have a Xerox Phaser 8400 with image problems. After power up it prints a Startup Page - That page is black text which faded and slightly distorted in some areas and in areas that are in Color only...


What you are describing is a bad print head. You can try running the eliminate light stripes several times, and jet substitution, but most likely the print head will have to be replaced to remedy your problem.
You can try googling. Phaser printer print heads or phaser printheads.
There seems to be a secondary market appearing for those print heads. I can tell you from Xerox, if you have no maintenance agreement, they cost $750 per print head.
Honestly, having worked on about every type of color printer known to man, the new solid ink phaser printers, produce a dry ink image of 2400 x 2400 dpi with ink particles that align end to end. The resolution of those printers are remarkable and can be purchased for less than the price of one of those new print heads.
Now for reliable, albeit somewhat not as sharp a color image, but still exceptional, you really can not beat an HP.
The ink stick technology really no longer has the color vividness advantage it initially had. The inks that align end to end, have ended that advantage and are sure a lot cheaper to operate per page.

Printing incorrect or faded colour.


Your printer have 4 sensors for ink level in ink tank section. Clean this sensors. Incorrect or dust colors - problems with printhead, or with the ink system. If you never replace printhead on this printer - call service. Thats be cheepest.
