HP OfficeJet K80 copying/faxing faded.

My HP OfficeJet K80 has stopped copying and faxing properly. The output is so faded that it is unreadable. However, the printing quality is fine. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

SOURCE: poor quality output

Hi If your printer has been left unused for a while your print head is clogged.

You need to unclog it with a print head cleaning kit like Magic Inkjet Flush or if in a rush give it the Magic sauna treatment.

Heres how:
1. Remove print head
2. Hold print head directly in escaping steam from a kettle for 5/10 seconds only
3. Wait 5 seconds and sit it print head down onto a paper towel untill you get an inky foot print.
4. Print test.
5. If any white lines repeat above.
6. Also try wrapping in a paper towel and FLICK DOWNWARDS to put fresh ink into print head after steaming.

Good Luck!

typically this is a software problem. Please check to make sure you have the correct and most up to date driver installed

SOURCE: Can I reprint an incoming

If the printer doesn't have memory function itself... they're not going to reprint.

However, for your HP6310, they do have a function for 100 pages of fax memory.

Fo go fax manu (on your left side, by facing printer), press the fax set up and will see the reprint for fax.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Hp office jet K80 recieves fax, sounds like it is printing but pages are blank

It sounds like an empty cartridge. check your cartridges, it may be time to replace them. You have to give more information like did you try a print test and if so did it print ok? have you tried to have someone send you a test fax from different numbers?

K80 all in one

our problem is similar and we've posted it....We have one land line with fax over facility. The fax is assigned a different phone number to the telephone line. The fax number rings different to the telephone ring but both are 'two rings' and the fax machine cannot differenciate between the two and keeps answering the telephone. The k80 has a maximum of 6 rings before it answers and this is too few to allow us to get to the phne in time. Also we have an answering machine on the telephone line. How do we get the fax to answer only the ring from the fax over line?

is it the same prob? Cowboy has posted some suggestions.

Good luck

K80 OfficeJet has trouble distinguishing fax and phone ring tones

I would suggest getting a new one, but BE SURE you check to see if it will work with VoIP. I have the HP 6210 and it has problems with VoIP as well. Go to a place where you can test it at home and be sure you can return it if it has issues. Best Buy, or Staples are pretty good with returns, but SAVE the receipt! LOL... Sorry I couldn't offer better news! //Don
