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.

I have refilled ink in my cartridge but when i try to print nothing comes out i.e it gives faint copies


Ink is full but nib is faulty will pen writes? similarly cartridge refilled with ink but nozzles are clogged/blocked then print wont happen properly..before refilling the cartridge check nozzle status, clean nozzles properly then refill it. Remedy1:Take little warm water pour in small container dip nozzles in water wait some 2-3 minutes clean nozzle area with dry smooth cloth...try it till print quality improves..Remedy2: You can do clan/align process through printer drivers properties..

My HP PRINTER,DESKJET F4180 is printing faintly even though there is a lot of ink


I presume that you have tried with different cartridges to rule out the possibility of cartridge fault and you are not printing in draft mode.

Clean the electrical contacts on the cartirdges and carriage.

The steel rod, on which the carriage moves, is set too far away from the paper. Open the printer's top cover and loosen the lock screw of the brackets holding the rod by its ends. Rotate these brackets a few degrees to lower the print carriage towards the paper to obtain desired printing. The screws to tightened.

look un der the print cartridge, you should see the actual print heads or jets. they can be removed and cleaned with mild soap and water. They tend to plug up if not used regularly.

Cleaning the print head on my HP5440 printer?


Try cleaning the head of the cartrige with alcohol and a Q-tip, if this doesn't help you may have to buy a new one. Cartriges can dry up if they haven't been used for a while. Even though you refilled it, there could be some dry ink stuck in the head. Hold the Qtip with alcohol on the head for a bit and let it dry, reinstall it and then try printing again.

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.
