Colour printing quality is very very poor on the left half of the page and then the colour becomes better towards the right hand side of the page. It prints a blueish colour when it is supposed to be green...


I work at a refilling facility and this is a common problem with toner Cartridges.
Your waste hopper is full on your blue cart.
If you are capable in taking the cartridge apart, then you can empty the hopper.
I am not familiar with your machine off the top of my head, but you may have a waste box in the printer, but I doubt it as its only on one side of the page.

Take the cart to either a refilling facility or send it to samsung if you feel you did not get the full use of the cartridge, remembering that if this one came with the printer it was a starter cart and will only have 1/3rd of the full amount.

Paper comes out incomplete and with a blue background.


HP printers require a certain type of paper and ink that is compatible with the printers.

Here are some print quality Issue suggestions from HP:
General print-quality problems can be solved by using the following checklist:
  1. Make sure that the paper or print media that meets the specifications. Generally, smoother paper provides better results.
  2. If a special print media is being used such as labels, transparencies, glossy, or letterhead, ensure that they are printed by type.
  3. Print a Configuration page and Supplies Status page at the device.
    • Check the Supplies Status page to see if any supplies are low or empty. No information is provided for non-HP print cartridges.
    • If the pages do not print correctly, the problem is with the hardware. Contact HP Customer Care.
  4. Print a Demo page from the HP Toolbox. If the page prints, the problem is with the printer driver. Try printing from the other printer driver. For example, if using the PCL 6 printer driver, print from the PS printer driver.
    • Use the Add Printer Wizard in the Printers (or Printers and Faxes in Microsoft Windows XP) dialog box to install the PS driver.
  5. Try printing from a different program. If the page prints correctly, the problem is with the printing program.
  6. Restart the computer and the device and try printing again. If the problem is not resolved, choose one of these options:
    • If the problem is affecting all printed pages, see General print quality issues.
    • If the problem is affecting only pages printed in color, see Solving issues with color documents.
I will get more information on this topic in a secondary post very shortly. The information was too long for one post. If this information was helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback. If you need additional assistance. Please include the model of printer that you are using.
Thank You,
Brian

Run the "disable cartridge check"
It will be in the Diagnostics.
Once you start the test, you can remove all the cartridges. Put the cyan in the black cartridge slot.
print a config page. If it is all blue, you have another bad cartridge. If it prints correctly(minus the other colors)...continue
Now put the magenta in the cyan cartridge slot. Print the config page again. If you have red all over the page, you have a problem with the slot itself.
Press the STOP button and then select EXIT diagnostics. Put the cartridges back where they all go and run CALIBRATION more than once.

Down arrow/ calibrate now. Select it and wait.

Color printout has shaded lines; rather than blue background, it prints blue striped background


It sounds like your blue ink may be running out.
If ink is full then try to remove an ink cartridge and putting it back, then run through the steps of printing the test page. It may be just that the pages are printing unaligned.

Printing from online comes out very light


Typically, the quality of images and text on websites is very low resolution to keep the file size down in order for them to load more quickly on your screen. Just because it looks good on your screen doesn't mean it will print the same. There are just fewer dots per inch in the text and images and they can appear faint and low quality when printed. Look for a print icon on some web pages as it will be at least formatted properly to fit the page and some are of better quality than printing what is on the screen.

When it comes to emails, if the text is in a color, especially blue, they will tend to print light. Change your printer settings to print grayscale and that should help sharpen things up about as much as is possible.

Grey background over entire page.


If toner is getting onto the transfer belt, it can only get there by either being put there intentionally, or leaking.

Failure of Transfer Belt is normally degraded print quality - usually poor density, or a failure of the support behind the belt (usually puncturing the belt), and scoring a drum.
