You can clean the jets with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. Also a paper-clip will help remove any clogs.
They also sell cleaning kits, but I use rubbing alcohol and cottown swab

The bottom half of the text is not printing (as if it's being cut off)


Your question does not tell me what printer you have so I will assume it a modern HP made after 2004.

HP Printers use a ink cartridge and this is connected by a tiny pipe to the print head that sprays the ink on the paper. Your problem is with the Print head and not the ink supply.

There is a remote chance that some paper felt or paper dust, or even a stray piece of tape has blocked the lower part of the print head. I assume that this is the black print head, so that is the head marked with the letters K Y (Black and Yellow) on most modern HP Printers. Try to clean this using the clean or clear functions found in the maintenance section of the Printer Software. If that does not do the job then follow the instruction to replace the print head but rather replace the print head use a clean cotton pad with a few drops of alcohol to gently clean the print head and replace it as per the instructions. If that does not do the trick then the bad news follows....

Because the lower part of the Print Head gets the most use (., and underlining all use the bottom part) its also the first part of the Print Head to fail. If you live in the U.S. or Canada the print heads are not expensive. Go out and buy just the Black (K Y) if that is 80% or more of your printing use. If you are doing a lot of color it pays to buy the two heads together in one package.

Printing but blanks


did the print out improve after your clean the head?
If all fails, try this last method.. take out all the ink and switch on the printer, when the printer detected no ink, it will ask you to insert the ink cart. Put back the ink cart and let the printer do ink charging.. pls make sure there is ink in the cart else it will damage the head.
After the ink charging, print a nozzle check and see if there is any improvement.

Dark spots on the left side of the paper


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Getting spots on photos


I pulled out the cartridge that was causing the spots, dabbed at the small pool of ink that collected with a very soft paper towel, re-cleaned the print heads and that seemed to solve it...
