This problem is mainly due to driver corruption
1. Reinstall the driver or scan for viruses and remove it.
2. Remove all temp files from the drive.
3. Try removing corruption in OS or reload OS.
4. Try connecting to another system and take print out.
5. Chipset on the printer may be having problem, get it serviced.

How to fix text from printing unevenly as if the roller was not rolling consistently?


Sorry, I don't have one. Mine was a different problem; incompatibility between my old hp desk jet 5650 and my new Mac Book Pro. Just needed a newer printer!
When something like what you describe happens it is because the cartridge is dry; I change the cartridge.

HP all-in-one F380 only prints top half of the page, and sometimes that is pretty faded. What to do?


Replace the ink-cartridges, because they are just about empty.
When ink is pulled from the cartridge, there is just enough ink to print a "low-density" page,
or a few lines of text, but there's not enough ink to "freely" flow, on demand, to ink a full page.

It prints only half a page.... how can i fix that???


Does the print fade out or is the printed page complete, just cropped down? If it is fading out then it is the cartridges running dry, or refilled using the incorrect ink. If it is printing the entire document, just smaller, then under printer properties you can set the page size. (control panel - printers and faxes - right click your printer and select printing preferences) I hope this helps Regards GM

PRINT IS FINE FIRST HALF OF PAGE, BUT QUICKLY FADES/WEAKENS LAST HALF OF EACH PAGE


You need to clean your print head nozzles. Find menu on your printer and push the button then use the up and down arrows to navigate the options. Find the one that says "maintenance" and push "ok" or "enter" from your printers key pad. Then find the "clean print head or nozzle" option and again push the "ok or enter" button on your printers keypad. Follow the instructions to complete the cleaning and print a test page to make sure your problem is solved. If not, repeat the cleaning until the ink flows through your print head correctly.

Deskjet 1540 changes color from black to red


There could be two reason for the issue. One if you refill cartridges then that could cause the problem. Second your cartridge might be running low. Please reply or let me know if this help. Change your cartridges.

Thanks
