Hi! The wastepad may be full thats why the printouts kinda muddy. You may replace the wastepad, or just clean dry it. Color cartridges wont be the issue so you can skip that. But just a thought, 6 years of service for a printer is pretty long enough. You may consider buying a new one for more efficient printing. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

Muddy prints


I have the R2400 and the photo prints look muddy. I have tried the same picture on another printer and the colors are vibrant. Why the muddy pictures on such a nice printer?

HP DeskJet 850c will not print colour


It could well be the printer head (the area where the cartridge locks into the printer) has gummed up contacts. Take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe down gently wipe down the face of the contacts. Keep wiping until all residue is removed. Reinstall a color cartridge and then run the printer's software alignment utility (this is part of the software that comes with the printer).

Canon i865 - black print is blurred/fuzzy on every 3rd line. Have done clean, deep clean, changed both 3 and 6 cartridges. No problems until recently. Beautiful full colour photographs clear and sharp,...


Your printhead has burned out nozzles, the black is the most used and first to go. It switches nozzles during printing for even wear, that's why every few lines you get bad spots.You need a new printhead.

Colour cartridge has run out and printer won't print.


Hi
Realy sorry but the only non new purchase option I have occsionaly found to work is to pull the colur cartridge and reinstal without using.'

Another one I've heard of and would definately not recoment is if you have an old recharge kit top the colour up with meths. My opinion of this is a great way to destroy your print head and cartridge.

Rewcharge kits containing all of your colours are inexpensive if a littlebit messy do it in the laundry or bathroom, over newspaper and preferably with a pair of gloves.

Kind Regards
