Check that you are not printing in "draft mode". If you are not, I would try cleaning the surfaces under the cartridges with a cotton swap and alcohol.

I changed the black cartridge in my hp 932c and now there is a faint double image of everything in black. I switched cartridges and still have the problem.

The Deskjet 932 has a sensor that allow the printer to perform an automatic calibration whenever a cartridge is changed. It should not be necessary to ever manually force a calibration, but if you want to you can do it from the front panel as follows:

1. Turn on the printer.
2. Press and hold in the power button.
3. While holding the power button in press and release the form feed button three times quickly.
4. Release the power button.

This will print a calibration page which will be scanned automatically as part of the process. The calibration may fail if the 78 cartridge is not properly printing yellow or the 45 is not printing properly. It may also fail if the sensor is fogged with aerosol. This can be resolved by cleaning the sensor with a damp q-tip. The sensor is located in a small black plastic box located in the lower right rear of the carriage.

Iam having MFP 1522NF printer...In that while copying...right side of paper is coming light.

Hi Kaurrs,

I have a 1522nf myself.
Here are a few steps you can try to get this printer fixed
1) Try scanning to the computer to check if the problem is related to the scanner bulb or to the printing side of the unit, if you see the problem on the scan job we can tell tall problem is while capturing the image.
2) Print a supply status report to cjeck on the level of toner on the cartridge, you can print this directly from the physical unit : MAIN MENU>REPORTS>SUPPLY STATUS, if the toner level is low (less than 10 %) i would try replacing the cartridge
3) You can try running 3 calibrations in a row from Main Menu>System Setup>Print Quality> calibrate colors> calibrate now
4) Run 2 cleaning modes under the printer main menu>service>cleaning mode

If after doing this you still have problems you can contact me directly to :

I have changed the cartridges in my printer nd it

This is an issue with the printhead of the printer. Please follow the below mentioned steps:
  1. Reseat the ink cartridges and the printhead of the printer. If you need help in doing so please go to the link
  2. After you are through with reseating the ink and the printhead, the printer would ask you to go through a calibration and the light on the printer would begin to flash.
  3. To calibrate the printer, put paper in the paper tray and press Start button on the printer. After you have printed the calibration, you will have to scan it so place it on the scanner glass and hit the start button.
  4. After calibrating the printer, try a deep clean by pressing the Cancel and Copy buttons at the same time for two seconds. Wait for a minute and the cleaning process would complete.
  5. Try printing a Demo sheet by pressing Copy and Cancel button.

If the problem still persists, you can get a free printhead replacement from Kodak.

Try running a deep clean and after the clean, calibrate the printer. If that doesn't work, call kodak tech support, you may need a new printhead.

Logo prints out blurry

It would more likely be the transfer belt then the fuser. Try doing the calibration 3 times in a row and see if that helps.

Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Print Quality
Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Calibrate Color
Press Select (Swoosh)
Use arrows to go to Calibrate Now
Press Select (Swoosh)
Press Select to Confirm Calibrate Now

If you could possibly manage to access the machine status menu and have it print to check the drum's life, fuser life, developer, etc.. pls refer. Kindly replace the toner cartridge accordingly use the menu settings when replacing any color if needed. Please print solid image or block in each color Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Balck. Well see if what color causing the problem. Please let me know the print result it may be; washed out or too light, too bright or black, double image, or not clean. Don't hesistate to contact me again about the result.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
