    Just the black ink printing gives a poor result with some (not all) print lines having an underlining of smudged mini slashes. other lines look like they have these through the middel with others having the slashes over the top. some print also looks smudged.

Photosmart B8550 color inks running low after printing only 1 or 2 4X6 prints. Also, have refilled cartridges, and black is coming out blue. I'm using a MacBook Pro OSX 8.6. I have set the print...


BETTER SOLUTION IS IF YOU TAKE MORE PHOTOS I SUGGEST YOU BUY ORGIINAL INK CARTRIDGES.THEN YOU CAN DO ONE TIME REFILLING.ITS OK.

AGAIN IF YOU TRY REFILL SAME CARTRIDGE MAY LOSS YOUR PAGE YEILD. IF U WANT USE REFILLED CARTRIDGES AGAIN BUY VIRGIN CARTRIDGE FROM REFILL STORE AND MAKE REFILL. OTHERWISE INK WILL FINISH SOON.

FOR BLACK INK U SHOULD REFILL OR BUY NEW ONE NOW. BECOS BLACK INK FINISHED ALREADY. THATS WHY YOU GETTING BLUE PRINTING....OOOOOOOOOK DEAR...

Replaced empty black ink cartridge, wont print black ink even after cleaning and aligning the printheads


The head of your printer cartrige (black) are not detected by the printer because it was damage and need to be replace. So that no more black ink could print anyway.

HP C309a. Just refilled my original cartridges, but the black now won't work. I did get a message saying that the black cartridge had been reinserted, or something similar. Any ideas please. Someone said...


1. Do U use "HP Solution Center" and if yes, do u see the cartridge in "estimated ink levels" window (if U don't, try clean the chip's pins on the cartridge)? 2. The "Photo Black" is pigment ink while the "Black" is dye ink.

How to improve print quality Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed. Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Cleaning.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Black, Color or All.
Press Menu/Set.
The MFC will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the MFC will go back to standby mode automatically. If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has not improved, call Brother Customer Service (see Brother numbers on page i).
Checking the print quality
If faded or streaked colors and text appears on your output, some of the nozzles may be clogged. You can check this by printing the Print Quality Check Sheet and looking at the nozzle check pattern.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Test Print.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Print Quality.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Color Start.
The MFC begins printing the Print Quality Check Sheet.
5 Check the sheet to see if the quality is OK by following these steps:
Color block quality check
The LCD shows:
6 Check the quality of the four color blocks on the sheet.
7 If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (Yes), and go to Step 10.
OR
If you can see missing short lines as shown below, press 2 (No).
The LCD will ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors.
OK Poor
Is Quality OK?
1.Yes 2.No
Black OK?
1.Yes 2.N
8 Press 2 (No) for Black or three colors
with a problem.
The LCD shows:
Press 1 (Yes). The MFC will start cleaning the print head.
9 After cleaning is finished, press Color Start. The MFC will start
printing the Print Quality Check Sheet again and then return to
step 5.
10 Press Stop/Exit.
There is more, but too long to put here.

Installed all new ink cartridges and now poor printing results


Dear louis,
You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?.
Regards,

Black Horizontal lines


hi!



Horizontal white lines usually indicate the ink cartridge is running out of ink or has some clogged ink nozzles. Try the following steps:
  1. Some of the ink cartridge ink nozzles may be clogged with dry ink. Use the ink cartridge cleaning service to try to clear them. Follow the steps below:
    1. check if there is plain white paper in the Input tray.
    2. Press Setup .
    3. Press < or >to select Tools and then press OK .
    4. Press < or > to select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The unit prints a test page.
    5. Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality appears to be getting better, run the Clean Print Cartridge utility again
  2. If the self test appears better, Increase the copy quality setting (Normal or Best) and try copying again. If the quality is still poor, continue to the next step.
  3. If the quality is still poor, one or more of the cartridges may be low on ink or empty. Follow the steps below to check the ink levels.
    1. Open HP Solution Center .
    2. Click Settings .
    3. Click Print Settings .
    4. Click Printer Toolbox .
    5. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.
    6. Replace any ink cartridge that is low on ink.
  4. If the ink levels are not low, clean the cartridge face and electrical contacts at the back of the print carriage.
    1. Open the front of the unit to access the ink cartridges.
    2. After the ink cartridges are at the center, unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, and remove the ink cartridges. The power cord must be removed to ensure that the unit is not damaged during the cleaning process.
    3. Clean the cross-hatched area of the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth that is slightly dampened with clean water to remove any build up. Avoid cleaning the ink cartridge nozzle plate. Cleaning this area can force foreign matter into the ink nozzles and plug them
    4. With a soft lint free cloth slightly dampened with clean water, clean the copper-colored contacts on the back of the ink cartridges.
    5. Allow the cartridges to dry before reinserting them.
    6. Close the unit, and plug the power cord back in.
    7. Print a self-test page to check the results. Follow the steps below to print a self-test page.
      1. Press Setup .
      2. Press <or > until Print Report displays and then press OK .
      3. Press < or > until Self-Test Report displays and then press OK . The self-test report prints.
    8. If the problem is not corrected by cleaning the ink cartridges, replace the ink cartridge(s).
- hope it will help to resolve you problem...
