Question about HP Deskjet 6940 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I am engaged in a colored printing project on my HP Deskjet 6940, and am having trouble with the quality. I am using 8.5" X 11" paper, (inkjet/laser brochure-flyer paper, 96bright, 45lb). The project prints in portrait orientation. Trouble is that the width going across the page from about 7.5" to 9.5" (from the top of the page) is in very poor quality. I thought this was an issue with the ink cartridge, so I replaced it, but the problem persists. This is true when I print using the "normal" setting for paper quality as well as when I use the "best" setting for the paper quality. Any suggestions? --Mark

This could be a problem with the paper your using. Try another brand of paper that is recommended only for the inkjet printer. Paper that is meant for Laser does not always work will with inkjet printers as it is made to handle toner and not ink.

Some paper I suggest is the HP Brochure paper C7020AC 48lbs which is recommended for your printer by Hewlett Packard. If not available try and see if you can get something similar that is only for inkjet printers. 8.5 x 11 in, 48 lb, 100 sheets C7020AC

How do I get my hp deskjet 6940 to print labels. I'm trying to print Avery 5498 labels


You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.

If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.

After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.

-best of luck

Blac Spots on right side of page


Hi,

This generally happens when,
The paper is mismatched to the paper setting for the printer.

For example, if you are using high-quality photo paper, set the printer's output for that paper; do not use the plain paper setting.

Post your response about how things turned up and i can help you up from there.....

Hp deskjet d2360


Hi

Yes the HP Deskjet D2360 will print pics. If you want to print photo quality, make sure your ink cartridges are in good shape and obtain photo quality paper.

You can actually print pictures on almost all printer paper but if you want a good result, I would suggest you look online for inkjet photo A4 photo paper.

Paper can be obtained in a number of finishes. For example Glossy, Silk, Matt and so on. If you just want reasonable quality for a school project or something, then a good quality non photo paper may be good enough for you.

Paper also comes in different thickness or weights. This is determined by the paper's GSM. For example: 80gsm is normal photocopier paper. A good quality photo paper would be 140gsm or 160gsm. When looking for paper online you'll see the GSM shown. It really is your personal choice. There are heaps of suppliers on the internet. Amazon do a good range.

You can also set your printer for various levels of quality. A rule of thumb is, the bettter the quality, the more ink you will use.

If you want to find out more about your printer, visit http.www.hp.com then look for your particular model.

Hope this helps.
