Hi Sharon,

This may be an error. Shutdown the computer and re-seat cartridges to be sure they are connecting to the cartridge carriages properly. Once cartridge replacement procedure completes, close all the access panels.

Now shut off the power to the printer by unplugging it or by turning off the power bar it's plugged into. Don't use the printer's power switch!

Now, plug the printer back in. Reboot your computer. And then, turn on the printer and let it complete the initialization process.

Hope it will help.

SOURCE: Not printing

You probably have paper debris stuck to the underside of the print head.

While you are printing, pull the lead from the back of the printer leaving the head free floating and unlocked so you can slide it back & fore. Get a piece of kitchen roll and fold it until it's the size of the track beneath the print head slide the head to the left, place the folded kitchen roll flat down in the print track, slide the head over the folded kitchen roll until it appears on both sides of the head. Grab both ends of the roll and lift it toward the head. Slide the roll sideways left and right to physically clean the bottom of the print head. Try not to tear it as it will trap under the head. let go of one end and slide the head away until you can pull the roll out. It should have a lot of ink and gunk on it. Plug the printer in and the head will reset itself.

Now because printing has been non existant, you'll need to "Prime" the heads. Use the maintenance software and click head cleaning, when finished do not allow the nozzle check pattern to print. Carry out 3 more head cleans cancelling the nozzle check after each one by clicking [Finish] until 4 cleans have been completed. Then allow the nozzle check pattern to print and it should be back to normal. If not perfect, carry out another "Prime" as above.

Hope this helped.

HP LaserJet 1320n Printer connected with usb to pc running on windows7; faded printing; economode = off; printer Density =3; what could be the problem


Faded printing is usuallly caused by an empty or defective toner cartridge. If the toner is new and the printer was working fine before the toner change then you might have a defective cartridge, or you may not have removed the tape strip from the cartridge when you installed it.

How do I know which toner is empty on samsung clp315


  • 1.Log on to your computer and print a test page to the printer. Click on the "Start" button, choose "Control Panel" and then "Printers and Faxes." Right-click on the laser printer, choose "Properties" from the drop-down menu and click the "Print test page" box.

  • 2.Look at the quality of the print on the finished page. If the print is light or faded, the ink cartridge is probably empty or at least empty enough that it should be replaced. You can try to get some extra life out of your toner cartridge by taking it out of the printer, shaking it vigorously and putting it back in. Under normal printing loads, this can give you one to three days of additional printing capacity.

  • 3.Open the printer cover and carefully pull out the toner cartridge. Set the cartridge aside while you open the box containing the new toner. Pull the new toner out but do not yet remove any of the packaging materials. Compare the weight of the new toner with the old one. If the old toner is very light, it is nearly empty and should be replaced.

    Hi,

    Here are some steps you can check to resolve your issue.

    Check if the ink cartridges are low, specially the color black since if the black is empty, you are using the colored cartridges to print black. If the cartridges are newly replaced check the cartridges by reseating it. Try to consider changing the print quality high but doing so will use more ink. If still the same try to clean your printer heads.

    Here are the instruction for cleaning your printer.

    Open the printer tool box. (open a word, then click on file then print, choose properties, then services)
    click on clean the print cartridges, then clean. Do test printing as well to check if the color is correct. If still the same calibrate the color which can be found in the same menu.

    For more information here is the link for step by step instruction with visuals.

    Hope this will help you resolve the problem.

    I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
    1. I go to Printer Properties
    2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
    3. Change Quality to "Photo".

    This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

    Good Luck

    Printing won't work.


    Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.
