    I forgot the rest, you'll probably have to both clean and re-align the print head.

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.

Blurrry print like a shadow


I am not sure of the model of your printer, but from this description it sounds like once or more cartridges need aligning. I would recommend running some alignment cycles or calibrations from your printer/printer software.

Hope this helps.

Pages are being printed blurry printer is pc850


Try a test page from the printer's properties,
Then try a cleaning and calibration if your printer has that.

Check the supplies maybe you don't have any toner left...

Hope it helps...

Black ink printing incorrectly. Blank lines are showing in the middle of a line of printing. I have cleaned the print heads, alligned and calibrated. Nothing seems to work. In fact, calibrating made...


Hi

Try to clean it manually by removing the ink cartridge and then clean the print head with softcloth with rubbing alcohol. Then rub again the printhead into a plain paper until ink flows. Then try to print again.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

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.

Need 2 calibrate my hp 1210 printer


Hi *s*

(bottom left corner windows START)
got to;
start/settings/printers/ and click

right click your printer and select printing preferences
click on the tab that says SERVICES
then click on the services icon button (picture)

you will see three choices;
align,
clean
print a test page.

Aligning is what you want.(calibration is just a different word)

You can also remove the ink cartridges as you usually do and then put them back in, this triggers and automatic printed page and then walks you through scanning and the alignment.*s*

if by chance you still have blurry printing and know your machine should be ok, try cleaning.( same procedure, different last choice- you clean the heads)

You can also check to see if the proper paper is selected. For instance, if you are trying to print heavy greeting card paper it must be set to that or it will not print properly. *s*

If you have thrown up your hands and tried all this, and nothing works. Go through your printer preferences and select SET DEFAULT SETTINGS buttons.
It will knock everything back to the way it left the factory *S*

Thank you and good luck. Please remember to give my answer a rating *S*

Logo prints out blurry


It would more likely be the transfer belt then the fuser. Try doing the calibration 3 times in a row and see if that helps.

Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Print Quality
Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Calibrate Color
Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Calibrate Now
Press Select (Swoosh)
Press Select to Confirm Calibrate Now
