My print acts like it's printing, but nothing is printing on the paper?


In control panel, start the printers applet, then right click on your printer and click on properties.
Next, go to the maintenance tab and do a deep clean on the printhead.
Once this is complete, do a check for clogged nozzles and if the pattern has gaps or no print, try another cleaning cycle.
If you still get no printing after three cleaning cycles, chances are your print head has failed or the cartridges have failed.
If you can remove the printhead, try soaking it in warm water for 10 minutes, dry it thoroughly and reinstall it. Do a printhead alignment and try printing again.
If this does not work, replace the printhead or cartridges or the entire printer.

PRINTER COLOR PROBLEMS


o.k. I can give you a few tips that may be of assistance.

you need to run a printer alignment page like you do when you put in new cartridges.

unplug your printer plug it back in.
open door and take out print ink cartridges.
put them back in and then close the door.

It should now prompt you to do a test alignment page.

Also, Another thing to try is to hit file, top left of page, hit print, click properties. color tab.

make sure you are printing high quality on chose different color management options.

FINALLY TRY THIS:

When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors are Incorrect

When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in
the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the
procedures below to maintain the print head.
Important Before maintaining the print head, check the following;
􀁺 Open the front cover and make sure that the ink tank
contains ink. If it is out of ink, replace it.
􀁺 Ensure that all the orange tape of the ink tank has been
peeled off.
􀁺 Press "PUSH" on the ink tank and ensure that the ink tank
is installed securely.
􀁺 Increase the Print Quality setting in the printer driver
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print
head nozzles, and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are
blurred or the color is incorrect.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
(3) When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK.
When the confirmation message is displayed after the nozzle check pattern has
been printed, click OK.
See "Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern" on page 52.
Note Nozzle check pattern printing can be executed also from the printer
itself. With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the
printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Cleaning
Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print
head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
The print head can be cleaned also from the printer itself. With the printer on, load a sheet
of Letter-sized paper in the printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp
flashes once.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
cleaned.
(4) Click Execute.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Deep Cleaning
If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try performing print head
deep cleaning, which is a more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink,
so perform this procedure only when necessary.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Deep Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Deep Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
deeply cleaned.
(4) Click Execute
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aligning the Print Head
This operation must be carried out when using the printer for the first time. Aligning the
print head positions allows you to print without shifts in the color registration.
Print head alignment is performed either automatically or manually. This section deals with
automatic print head alignment only.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the pattern.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Print Head Alignment.
(3) Check that paper is loaded in the
printer and click OK. If a message
warning you not to perform other
operations appears, click OK.
It takes about one minute to start

All of my prints are faded. i have always had these issues with this thing. every now and then it prints fine but rarely.


If you do not print regularly on an ink-jet printer, the prints will not be good. You can try going to "print preferences", find the "maintenance" tab, then do what is called a "head cleaning". Cleaning your print head might help improve the printing quality. You might have to do this several times, depending on the quality you seek. Also, bear in mind that cleaning the print head uses a lot of ink from your cartridges.
You can also try and change the quality from "normal" to "best" (also located in "properties", under "print quality" or something similar). Also, you should always adjust your printer to best mode when printing photos.
Hope that helps!

I have a epson TX110 printer. the printer is skiping lines and bluring lines on the pages printed


You need to go into the *properties icon on the print page and click on maintenance. Once you are in maintenance, click on clean print head and follow the directions. You may need to do it a few times to get it cleaned up if it has gone this far.

* go into a document and click on print as you would if you want to print it. when you are in the first print page, depending on your computer somewhere in the print box will be the properties icon.

Printing in wrong colors


You need to go to the maintenance tab on your printer properties and deep clean the head. If that fails, remove the print cartridges and poor some rubbing alcohol on the print head enough to wet it, replace cartridges and deep clean again, if that fails you may need a new print head or replace the printer, cost dependent.

Printing light colors does not work


You RINSED the printhead???

I wouldn't do that again.

Try taking a damp cloth and dabbing it against the printhead nozzels until you get lines forming on the rage from the ink (the nozzels you're having trouble with specifically).
