This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.


Thanks

Ink is low epson me10


if your ink is low, you need to buy more ink. OR you can buy ink refill kits ( super cheap ) just be careful filling the ink cartridges so you don't over fill.

If you have only printed a few things ( photo's aside) and are low on ink, then try NOT printing the best quality. adjust the ink quality settings in the properties when your about to print.

Note: if your just printing text and it's not for anything super important ALWAYS go with draft. it prints faster and uses a lot less ink.

Blurred officejet 4620 photo


Have you checked to be sure that -
  • you've designated the paper type as one of the photo type papers?
  • you've designated the print quality as either Normal or Best (NOT Draft or Quick or similar low-quality print)?
  • you're using one of the photo-type papers?
  • none of the ink cartridges is low on ink?

Hello Charles! Welcome to FixYa!

Actually as you told that you have replaced ink cartridge sometimes ago so with the new ink the effect of primary colors is more and when you print on the high quality the effect of primary color is more.
If you are printing the photos with software the try to print it on medium quality, even on low quality, The result will be fine. You can change the setting of printing in any software. After a time while when the ink will be used the result will automatically fine even on High quality.

I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

The printout is low quality not smooth ?


Generally with all laser printers the print quality is low when compared to that of a inkjet printer. Try cleaning the Printer Cartridge and u can make good quality print outs by changing the settings at the time of printing. Use your Laser Jet printer software from HP and clean the device.
