Is it clean? Most ink jet printers have a simple user procedure for cleaning the print heads. You may have to clean them periodically or after the printer has been idle for a few days or weeks. If you see funny colors or print-outs are missing colors, a cartridge may be empty or a head dirty. You may have to clean a head many times to get it working again.

When I test print, I do not get a full pattern of black dashes. I changed ink cartridges and have the same result. The color test prints are fine


If you are missing dots it is due to the print head not the cartridge.
Try doing a self cleaning a few times (max of 5) by pressing "ink" and select "cleaning"

If after 5 cleanings there's still a problem, you may need to have the printer serviced or replaced.
Since you're still getting most of your dots though, I think the cleanings should clear it out.

Difference between dot matrix printer and laser printer

1. Dot matrix as the name suggests prints in small dots. The print out u get in railway tickets. 2. Laser printers are very speedy and have clear and sharp printing. There is no comparison b/w a laser printer and dot matrix. If dot matrix is 1st GEnaration than laser is atleast 10 generations ahead
