I have a new C4480 - when it prints one line is blurred and the next line is fine, then the next line is blurred and then next fine again. I have deleted the software and reloaded it twice but no help. I have loaded onto 3 different computers but same results. I have run the alignment prcedure, the print head cleaning procedure, etc just as instructed but still no help.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

SOURCE: Prints blurry every other line with black color

Hi,

Is it the ink cartridge contacts you already cleaned? If so, then you can also clean it using the tools menu from the printer panel:

-press setup menu, then go to tools
-select clean print cartridge and press ok
-it will print a test page. If the printout is good, you can try printing again.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

SOURCE: Will not print black , HP PSC 1610 All-in-One

Here was the solution. You MUST use HP brand black cartridge. Originally I purchased a #94 Office Max brand black cartridge. After it did not work I took it back and they gave me a second Office Max brand and that did not work either. So I took it back and they sold me an HP brand (I only needed to pay the difference in price so Office Max was good to work with). I installed the HP #94 black cartridge and everything now works.

The printing is blurry. How can I fix it?


I would start by cleaning under the print head. You could have some dust that's causing the blurring.
You can also run a "cleaning cycle" and a "head alignment" which may help.

First two letters on the left are blurry. The


Look inside behind where the carriage is, the plastic strip behind the carriage probably has an ink or grease spot right where you see the blurred letters. Wipe that strip carefully with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, and the blurs should go away...

Double Blurry Print


Usually hairs sticking to the underside of the print head causes this.

I gave a solution to an Epson CX6400 user who needed to physically clean his print head. Look this up in the solutions. It involves using folded kitchen roll under the print head with the printer switched off and the head unlocked and free floating.

It would take me ages to type this again so please look this up.

The user had jammed paper and cleared the jam but had paper stuch to the underside of his print head.

I hope this helps.

Brother MFC-210c prints some lines blurred, letters stacked - alignment ok.


i have the same problem. repeated cleanings seem to help, when i print large fonts they come out pretty clear, but the smaller the font, the worse the blurring. 600 DPI prints mismatching patterns, but 1200 DPI prints perfectly fine. so i have found that printing on "fine" quality instead of "fast" or "normal" quality improves print quality ALOT. it uses more ink, but i am in business and need to be able to read very fine print!
