Clean the print head ... open the printer software in the printer folder and look around for a maintenance tab ... follow the instructions.

From your computer, go to your printer settings, it might also be called page setup or be listed under options when you open the print menu. You need to adjust the quality. You should also be able to adjust this from the screen on your printer. It should be under the options / settings button. You'll want to adjust it to be darker or high quality, depending on what settings your printer offers.

Clean print ink


Seems like the cartridge head is jammed. You can take the cartidge out and put the head for like 5 minutes in warm water then clean it gently with some tissue paper, hopefully this shall solve your problem.

Just replaced the ink cartidges and only faint horizontal lines appear when printing.


Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog some ink-jets that are not shooting ink onto the paper.

Scanner component scans and prints normally. Trying to print off an e-mail is a different story. The little screen says 'printing' and it goes through the motions. You can hear the carriage travelling line...


check the ink cartidges (the color ones) scanners use just black ink to print with (all grayscale) if you can't buy/ afford cartidges right now (who ISN'T broke these days!?!) then set the preferances on the printer to "black/ grayscale" and see if that works ( also is a good test to see if ink is out)

My HP 990cse deskjet printer prints in very faint ink, even though I have just put in 2 new ink cartridges. What happened?


Make sure you have a tri-color and a black cartridge installed. Make sure the print quality is not set to draft mode. Only use HP inkjet cartridges and not refilled cartridges. Make sure you are using the correct driver for your operating system.

MP530 will coply but won't print


sir,
Try to replace the cartidge maybe your cartidge is not fit to work properly and also the ink is not compatible with your printer
then after you replace the cartridge do the nozzle cleaning until its ok.

No Yellow Or Cyan Ink


Hi do the following and hopefully it will help you. If it doesn't then you have a fault carriage or main PCB.

  • Remove ink Cartridge
  • With a soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the carriage unit and the same on the ink cartridge
  • reinstall the ink cartridge
  • Click start
  • Select printers and faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer icon
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Services Tab
  • Click on clean print heads
  • Then click on Prime.
Hopefully this will work

Thanks J

Deteriorating Print Quality


This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
