It could be either. The printer may be set to use too much ink or the ink may not be drying properly. The best way to correct this is to set the ink to a lower setting. You can do this thru the menu section of your printer.

It is the ink and paper, it is ink water will make it smear, There are some special inks and paper but cost more.

Why does the ink smear when I print on the back of hp paper


Basically it is a one sided paper like a one way street, mean to be used one side. It is only mean to be used one side..like a one way sponge soaks up the ink from closest side, turnover and it is blocked paper not able to soak up ink on the dull side.

I cleared the paper jam on my HP 8500. It still says its jammed?


You may have left a small piece of paper covering a sensor or perhaps an ink smear on the sensor. You can clean off the ink with a cloth dampened with water.

Getting black streaks across documents and pictures


Usual cause is defective bllack cartridge or it needs to be removed and excess ink cleaned from the face of it.

SOMETIMES using too heavy of paper can bend up an touch the bottom of the cartridges as tehy move across to page.

Also a paper jam can brush the cartridge and after that the ink is smeared on the cratridge face and will mark the paper as it moves across.

Using BAD refilled cartridges is a common problem.

Ink from my deskjet 5650 smears off my glossy postcards.


Hello there jbaerpynes.

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.

Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to comment on my post. If I helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Thanks.

Streaked & smeared printing on envelopes


Check area where the envelope is pulled into the unit. There may be some debris causing the ink to smear.

Ink never dries


That is an unusual problem. Are you using Original HP cartridges? Some of the refills can do weird things.

Hope that helps...
