Leaving black streaks down paper? Ink cartridge


If this started after cartridge was replaced, then it is probably defective.

Take the cartridge out and take a look at the print head. Clean the print head.
Put the cartridge back in
Try and feed paper (not printing anything on it, if you can not get it to just feed paper, print a blank page) and see if it still has lines. If so, you are probably going to have to clean ink from inside the paper feed area. If not, try using it for a while and if it starts again, get a replacement cartridge. You might want to save some of the bad prints to show the clerk and try to get the new cartridge under warranty.

HP C7280 does not print straight, ie the print is angled on page


There is no way that a printer prints out of alignment unless the paper slips enroute. Meaning that the rollers are not holding the paper tight and the guides not pressing the paper snugly, as you put it. So, it could either be the rollers not aligned to each other properly or the guides not pressing the paper equally. The print head moves on a steel rod which is straight. So that can not be the culprit as the print head has to move in a straight line, irrespective of the paper being straight or slipped. So, that leaves us with the slipping paper for which there are the rollers and the guides. If you feel that the tension in the guides is not equal, then change the guides, else the rollers need a closer look. Or at least clean them with a damp soft cloth and allow them to dry up before using them.

Can't enlarge font. The print is so small from a printing, that you can barely read it.


If the font size from the printer is smaller than on your screen then you need to adjust the font in the print options/advanced tab. The font rint out is defaulted to either 8 or 10. Go to Print Preview...Print options and go to the advanced tab and set print font size to Scale for A4 paper.

It sounds like you are printing to postcard size paper.

Prints blank lines


You either have a cartridge leaking, or what we use to call "whiskers". Sometimes the paper dust and ink will cause there to be hairs hanging under the ink cartridge that drag on the paper. If this is your problem, the only way I know to clean it is to remove the cartridge and get a damp Qtip and clean out under the cartridge carrier.

MP 780 DOESN'T PRINT


Try printing something in a colored font, like red or green and see what happens. This printer uses two black ink cartridges. It uses the larger one for black text printing. If it is dry, blocked, or damaged, your text (usually black) will not print. Changing to a color font will rule that out.

Good luck.

POOR RINT QUALITY ON 4 PART INVOICE/DELIVERY PAPER


SRibbon wont effect multi part forms, well it will only effect the top one. Most dot matrix printers also have a impression adjustment, sounds like you need to increase yours.. it brings the print head closer to the platen.

It could also be the paper, not having much carbon to print the next part.

I've also notice you ask a lot and suggest you may need more than simple one line free answers.

Font problem will be program or print driver or even possible printer default settings (read printers user manual) .ie.font used by software is probally not supported on 2nd line so a default font is used

Once you have read manula you will find and know how to change print quality ie draft or LQ.

After reading manual you should also discover you can do print quality adjustments via the oprint driver.

HP Laserjet 1500 Color, Print out Blank


Hi devi960:
Pages print, but all
colors do not print or
the pages are
completely blank.
One of the print cartridges might be
low or empty.
Run an engine test and see if all four colors print. If
not all colors print, replace one or more of the print cartridges. If the
engine test is successful, replace the formatter.
If the printed pages are completely
blank, the file might have blank
pages.
Check the file to make sure that it does not contain blank pages.
A print cartridge might be low or
empty.
Check the printer control panel for a Supplies Status message,
print a Supplies Status page, or use the embedded Web server
(HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see the levels
remaining in the print cartridges. Replace any print cartridges that
are low or empty. Messages are not created for non-HP print
cartridges.
If you are using non-HP print
cartridges, one or more print
cartridges are low or empty. The
control panel lights do not indicate
low or empty for non-HP print
cartridges.
Replace one or more of the print cartridges.
Font DIMM might be selected but the
font DIMM is not physically installed in
the printer. (This issue applies only to
HP color LaserJet 2500 series
printers using an Asian-language font
DIMM.)
In the settings for this printer, clear the Font DIMM check box on
the Configure tab if no font DIMM is installed in the printer. Select
the Font DIMM check box only if the font DIMM is physically
installed in the printer. If you think that the font DIMM is installed,
make sure that it is installed correctly.
The paper curls when
exiting the top output
bin.
The paper needs to print to the
straight-through paper path.
Open the rear output door to print to the straight-through paper
path. Remove each sheet as it exits the printer.
The stack was slightly curled when it
was placed in the tray.
Turn the stack over in the tray.
The paper does not meet
specifications.
See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
If you are printing on light media, the
Type setting might not be correct.
Select Light in the Type is field in the printer driver.

Empty ms word printout


Hi, You can try: 1. go to Start, Printer and Faxes, right click on your 3745, click on Properties, Printing Preference; 2. Check to see if you have any Advanced tab or button; 3. Check if you can set the printer to text only; 4. Check if you can set the printer to use black ink only. 5. In MS Word, verify through the use of Print Preview that your document is as you would want to be printed; 6. In some instances you may have to set manually text color in MS Word. While your document is open, click Ctrl + A to select all, then choose font color to "Black". Alternately, in your MS Word, you can click on "Format", "Font", "Font Color" set to "Black" rather than "Automatic" and set this as the "Default" setting. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
