Question about HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My HP 940c prints blank sheets.

My HP 940c has been a real great workhorse. Uses little ink and prints quality copies set on DRAFT. A few months back (on cooler mornings) the first page would come out very light at the top and then be fine by halfway down the page.. mostly B&W printing. Last week it started printing blank sheets. I replaced the cartridges and still the same. I get no error message.

Ink is low epson me10


if your ink is low, you need to buy more ink. OR you can buy ink refill kits ( super cheap ) just be careful filling the ink cartridges so you don't over fill.

If you have only printed a few things ( photo's aside) and are low on ink, then try NOT printing the best quality. adjust the ink quality settings in the properties when your about to print.

Note: if your just printing text and it's not for anything super important ALWAYS go with draft. it prints faster and uses a lot less ink.

When you click to print something, you will get what's called the Print Dialogue box.

By default, it is probably set to "Normal". That's the middle setting. To save ink, you can set it to Fast Normal (better for ink saving) or Fast Draft (best for ink saving). This means the printer will use less ink to print the page. The final copy will look a little lighter but certainly still readable.

This option "fast draft" will print very fast and also save your ink.

I would be taking it back to the place of purchase and asking them to replace it. Or contacting HP directly with the problem.

You can contact HP via their home page of their website, or use the link below for troubleshooting and support:

NOTEs:

1. Unless you are printing a final copy of an item it is a good idea to always print in Draft Quality (to save your ink). HP Printers allow you to do this. This setting is generally within the Print window, when you select Print.

2. When you are printing a final copy then switch from DRAFT to BEST quality.

The ink cartridges need to be replaced very often epson 810


You can try to change your print quality to a lower setting. This saves a lot on toner. If you are not printing for anything super important you can set some printers to "fast draft" or "draft" quality and that saves a ton. I personally dont usually need to print anything of high quality so I went to my local "Everything" store(not sure if I should use company names) and bought an HP, the cheapest color printer they had which was $30.00 The black and color cartridges together cost about the same as the printer. But I use the lowest setting which is the "fast draft" setting and set it to print in black ink only, and only change that when I NEED something in color and it uses very little and prints very fast.

Vertical and horizontal lines when printing photos - HP Photosmar


Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.

Noise when beginning to print or copy


Mine always makes noise too, I don't know why. But I know that it's a lot noisier when paper quality is set for draft, so you might want to check that.
If you just go into the printer properties, under the tab that's something like Paper/Quality. There will be a drop-down list where you can choose the quality of your print out, i.e. Best, Normal, Draft or FastDraft. If it's set for Draft, you might want to change it to Normal. Draft uses less ink, but it also doesn't come out quite as clear, and is very loud.

Won't scan, copy, or fax


You need to change the ink cartridge, the fact that it prints in fast draft is because it does not use as much ink to print as normal letter quality.

COLOR NOT VIVID


The DeskJet 940c is not really the highest quality printer out there on the market. However, having said that, the printer is still capable of producing decent quality printouts. You might play with your printer settings for print intensity, lightness, ink volume.
