    The page prints ok but then fades away towards the bottom of the page. There is a new ink cartridge so it is not lack of ink.

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.

HP Deskjet printer 6940 clearly prints only top half of a page. The lower half fades and some lines fade completely. Many thanks for your help!


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.

Black ink prints half a page then fades out. Sometimes does not print black at all. I have replaced the black ink cartridge twice and ran "clean printheads" many times. Still will not work


HI since you tried replacing the cartridges and cleaning the printhead, try the steps below.

1.Print a Demo Page.

a.Press the Menu button of the printer.
b.Use the down arrow key and select Print Demo Sheet.
c.Press OK button.

If demo page doesnt have black ink or faded prints,the printhead on your printer require replacement. Call 1.800.421.6699

Thanks.

Won't print but few lines til black fades out


It pretty much sounds to me like you have "outdated" or old cartridges. Are you using the photo setting to print photos? Before you purchase more expensive cartridges do a head cleaning! Good luck.

Page is printed but fade


The toner cartridge is faulty. It is possible that when you pulled out the strip that the whole thing didn't come out. Return the cartridge (with a couple of printed sheets to demonstrate printing) and the receipt and you should get a replacement.
