This happens when the heads become dirty. There is a maintenance section in the software that comes with the printer . If you open it up and look at the tabs at the top, "maintenance should be the last one. There is a print check and then cleaning procedure to follow. If you have Windows XP. You would go to Start, Control panel, Printers and Faxes, Locate the image of your printer and right click on it. Go down to properties and click that. Then open up preferences. the last tab along the top opens up the maintenance section. Then you can have at it until it works well. Go back and forth between "print check" and "cleaning" until it works. Hope this helps,
