Printer went downhill fast

I used to print full crisp photos all the time and as of late my printer is printing pixalated and blurry photos? I have gone through the whole cleaning and tried everything the manual asks me to do and still no good photos?

Well that means a new print head then.
I would take it out and clean it as it doesn't work anyway
I see one on ebay for 45 includes shipping

I have a 2410 HP printer and it prints very very very slow. Can you help me? Email address pretty111comcast.net


I have the exact same model of printer, I find that it prints faster if you go into printing preferences and change the print quality to fast draft or fast normal. You can also set the printer directly by pressingcopy twice then press3 for copy quality, then select 3 for fast.
Doing both should produce faster printing for your documents. (NOTE : This will not suggested if you are printiing items that need to have crisp clean printing as the faster it prints the less detailed the printing is.)

My Brother MFC-3240C printer does not print crisp images. Colors are washed out and lines run though the images. I reinstalled the CD and no luck. Can you tell me what to fix?


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. Better than throwing the printer.

Good Luck

When scanning a picture, the picture comes out faded even if the picture is clear and crisp.


Most scanners allow you to chose what resolution that you want to scan the photo at and you may have selected too low a resolution, for example for the web. If you want the highest resolution scan you need to select the TIF option if its there. If not, select the highest number available.
When you say its "faded", do you mean when it prints out or when it shows on your computer screen? If its when it prints, obviously it could be a printer ink issue or maybe your printer is set to "fast print", which gives poor resolution and may look how you explain.

BLURRY PRINT OUTPUT


The head probably needs aligning.

An interum fix is to turn off bi directional printing in the preferences.

This could possibly solve the problem.

Color printing


I removed the ink tanks then I removed the print head very carefully.
I rinsed the print head with the cleaner that comes with my refill
bottles, let it dry and carefully reinserted the print head. I "cleaned"
the nozzles and ran nozzle check and it worked fine.

I no longer trust this iP5000 printer for photos so I have purchased a new
Canon iP6700D which is great. I will use both printers...only using
the new one for photos only.

The main thing I have learned from my Canon printers is not to clean
the print heads as often due to that "Absorber almost full" message!
I still like the Canon for the ink capacity and separate tanks.

Your site has been so helpful! Thank you!

Printer issues


If you are using Glossy paper, when you go to print make sure to go into the printer Properties from the Print dialog box and select Glossy paper in the type. This will put the printer into it's highest print quality mode.

So from most windows applications, it would be :-
CTRL-P (to print with dialog box for changes)
Click on Properties
Select a Media type of glossy photo paper
Select standard or high print quality.

p.s. you may need to experiment which if the media types gives you best quality for the paper your using, unless it's Canon paper and then just match it up.
