* If your are printing color photos on a Glossy paper you must chose the paper type from Media Type in the Printing Properties while giving Print command. If you don't know what is the type of your glossy paper then just select other glossy paper from the given options. faded color prints - f91a3a39-5f37-45c6-9bca-21ac453f79ef.gif

Try to clean your printheads or check the level of your inks, maybe you are low on inks. Operating system does not affect any printing outputs as I know. Check your inks also coz HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. If ink cartridges have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.
If the print defect is minor, it might be caused by reserve mode operation. When the printer runs out of some colors, it can continue printing using remaining inks, but print quality may be affected. If cyan, magenta, or yellow is out, the printer can print only in grayscale.
Replace any empty print cartridges. To check ink levels, follow the steps below.

  1. Press the Setup button.
  2. Press the down arrow button until Tools is highlighted.
  3. Press OK .
  4. The Display Ink Gauge selection should be highlighted. Press OK and the ink gauge will display.
OR try calibrate the color:
  1. Open the printer Toolbox :
  • Open HP Solution Center (click Start , then All Programs , then HP , then HP Solution Center ).
  • If you have more than one printer installed, make sure to select the correct printer tab in HP Solution Center .
  • Click Settings .
  • Click Print Settings .
  • Click Printer Toolbox .
2. On the Device Services tab, click Calibrate Color , then follow the onscreen instructions. The procedure takes about two minutes and requires two sheets of paper.
If the steps above did not help, clean the print head.
  1. Open the All-in-One Toolbox :
    1. Open HP Solution Center (click Start , click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center ).
    2. If you have more than one All-in-One installed, make sure to select the correct All-in-One tab in HP Solution Center .
    3. Click Settings .
    4. Click Print Settings .
    5. Click Printer Toolbox .
  2. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , and then follow the onscreen instructions. Three levels of cleaning are available.
Please let me know if these steps helped you or not. Thanks

SOURCE: Light or Faded Areas in Solid Color Prints

If the issue is occuring in the same place on all prints, try the imaging drum (can't remember if this printer even uses one) or the transfer belt/roller (not sure which it uses). If you phone Dell support, they should run you through troubleshooting and send you either of those parts free of charge if you are under warranty. If not, buy them anyways; they don't degrade over time (if kept in the dark) and can be saved for when the currently installed one runs out if you don't need it to fix this issue.

SOURCE: color photos printing very faded

Some nozzles could be burned out on the printhead, and you need to make sure you have no photo inks installed where regular inks should be. Photo magenta prints much lighter than regular magenta.

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Very slow printing


I'm not sure that there is a problem here.  The correlation between print speed and print quality, 
especially on InkJet printers, is a negative one.  That is, the higher the quality setting, the lower 
the speed. So, if you're selecting the greatest quality for your print option you will suffer the 
lowest output speed.  This is because the printer is taking time to ensure that it prints each 
minute detail onto the page.
 
If you are looking to keep the quality optimal, one solution may be to select a different grade of 
photo paper (or perhaps one with a different coating [matte, semi, gloss]) and test to see if you 
can lower the quality setting on these higher-end paper types and still achieve your desired 
results.

To get what you want from your printing paper, you will have to consider what you like in a print, 
how you intend to use your prints, and what you are willing to pay to achieve this at home. 
Some things to think about include: paper thickness, color brilliance and resistance to fading. 



1. Paper Thickness
When it comes to paper thickness, paper that resembles the look and feel of traditional prints 
will be the best if you like to print a lot of photos and pass them around. Thick paper just feels 
right in your hands and will also stand up better to handling. However, if you are going to put 
the majority of your photos straight into an album, a thinner paper may work just as well for you.



2. Color Brilliance
To ensure the photo paper you purchase produces good color, you can purchase small sheaves 
of a short list of photo papers which you think will suit you. Next, print a series of colorful test 
photos on each to see which has the best color. If you can incorporate colorful photos that also 
have prominent straight lines and people in them, you will also be able to check the quality of 
sharpness and skin tones in the same test.



3. Resistance to Fading
Always try to check the resistance of the paper to fading. Simply take your batch of test photos 
and tape them to the window that gets the most sunlight throughout the day. Then, before you 
go in to pick up a batch of replacement paper, check to see which photos, if any, are showing 
signs of fading. Any paper that shows signs of fading in this short time frame should be avoided.


4. Changing Your Ink

It is also important to remember that any time you change ink for your printer, you may find 
yourself getting dramatically different results.
