SOURCE: Black print is faded on my HP deskjet 6980

Hi,

Here are some steps you can check to resolve your issue.

Check if the ink cartridges are low, specially the color black since if the black is empty, you are using the colored cartridges to print black. If the cartridges are newly replaced check the cartridges by reseating it. Try to consider changing the print quality high but doing so will use more ink. If still the same try to clean your printer heads.

Here are the instruction for cleaning your printer.

Open the printer tool box. (open a word, then click on file then print, choose properties, then services)
click on clean the print cartridges, then clean. Do test printing as well to check if the color is correct. If still the same calibrate the color which can be found in the same menu.

For more information here is the link for step by step instruction with visuals.

Hope this will help you resolve the problem.

Thank you for choosing fixya

Most likely bad cartridges. Try going to Printers and Devices, find your printer, right click on it and select "printer properties". At the Properties window, select "Services" and on that window select "clean the cartridges" and ok. Let the printer complete its gyrations and try again. You can repeat this a couple of times and perhaps add the "prime" selection on subsequent tries. If that doesn't help, take the cartridges back and try for another pair. If they were refills, chances are they just weren't refilled.

Faded black and white printouts


If you remove the toner cartridge and gently shake it side to side, then reinstall it, does the problem go away, or come back after a few pages? I would suspect you have a bad toner cartridge/image unit and recommend you put in a new one.

Printing with a faded line down the document. does it just need a new cartridge/ Thanks Nick


Yes a new catridge can be the first option for the option for the fault but if after the new catridge is put in the fault is remaining then do a head cleaning before we can think of the laser jet.

Fading prints and new cartridge error, will not aliegn


It's possible it is the new cartridge, but it sounds more like the print heads. I had the same printer and same problems until I changed the print heads. You are better off buying American Made Printer Ink Cartridges Even If They Cost A Little Less Than Name Brands. I get mine from www.officeinks.com with a 1 year quality and satisfaction guarantee with free return shipping. I have used it once and had no hassle.

Faded or no printing of documents


First, have you removed the protective tape from the bottom of the printer cartridge? I know it sounds simple, but it's something easy to overlook when you install a new cartridge.

Fading cartridge problems


That printer is pretty old. Are you selecting "Best" quality when you print or is it possible that some documents are being printed in Quick Print mode (which puts less ink on the page)? If you're doing the same thing on each print job but the print quality changes, there's definitely a problem. If you're printing from web pages, the print quality may be a factor of the design of the pages. If you print two pages of a multi-page document and quality declines, you should be able to get help through Lexmark's technical support.

Black ink looks faded!


Providing that the ink cartridges were new and supplied with the printer, the cartridge is defective. I also don't think that you used up all the ink either unless you printed hundreds of documents already. Take the cartridge back to the store where you got the printer from and they should give you a new one.
