Printed image The ink creates the image on the paper, however, it does not bind to the paper and easily rubs off. Is there a temperature setting for the fuser unit that 'sets' the ink?

There is no temperature setting for the fuser unit. Either your paper is too humid (it also curls when coming out of the unit). Or your fuser unit is bad.

Can use a glossy paper?

If the glossy paper is rated for the printer you are using yes. Never use paper that is only rated for inkjet in a laser printer. Many special inkjet papers have coatings that will melt or break down due to the heat of a laser jet and may damage your printer.

The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.

Printed pages have blank lines every three or so lines.

Hi

It might be clogged ink or ink dries up. If the ink is new try to rub the print nozzle in a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows and run the print nozzle cleaning for 2 times and then try to print again. Regards

iI would check your paper type setting. you are working with a liquid type of ink and water will effect it. check the drying time of this ink. set your paper type to the set the type most suitable for this paper. try heavy gloss. you will find it under paper settings in the main menu. If no luck refer back to the ink and its compatibiliy with your ipf 8000. now if these are a recharged cartridges. you should change to the oem. meaning" original engineering manufacture".

I printed wedding invitations and now if you rub the invitations the ink rubs off. Is there any way to get the ink to set (or not rub off) now that I have finished printing everything!!! Help I need to...

Maybe someione is trying to tell you something LOL.

The time to figure this out is *before* you print invitations as a DIY project. There's a set of photographic inks and paper that keep the product from smearing and there's always the commercial printer. Unfortunately for you, you get to learn this lesson too late. Here's the reading material on inks http://www.hp.com/products1/printpermanence/pdfs/finals/Water-resistance_article.pdf

You may need a shop to increase the fuser temperature. You also may just need a new fuser. In printing preferences you need to make sure you're telling the printer you're using envelopes or labels. When the toner rubs off, the fuser is just not hot enough.

Ink rubs off or prints double/messy

Sounds like your fuser is getting ready to stop working. Your fuser creates the heat so the toner from the cartridge is baked onto the paper as it passes through, your toner is rubbing off, so you could try cleaning, but I'm sure it'll be a new fuser, or possibly a fuser roller. Your owners manual has all the information and step by step trouble shooting guide to let you know.
