Question about HP DeskJet 3745 Printer

Blurry text print with ghost image

I have an HP Deskjet 3745 printer. It has started printing blurry with a ghost image and the print is darker than normal. I installed a new cartridge and it didn't help-still doing it. The old cartridge was doing the same think only the print was lighter. The color print is fine, only the black is acting up when printing text. Any ideas on what I can do to solve the problem? Thanks, Dee

Hey,
Your problem could be because of bad alignment. That means paper alignment and printer alignment don't match. There will be instructions in,your manual to properply align your printer. 
Hope this helps. 
Thanks

    There is a process called 'calibrate printer'. This procedure is explained in detail in the manual.

    Or, 


    the problem is that the documents you are 
    choosing to print don't have black as the default font colour in your text 
    software. Or possibly your text is not really text at all (in the sense of 
    being a bunch of ASCII) but is an image, just as if it were a scanned text 
    that hasn't been OCR'd. Keep it simple and print from Notepad to check.

My deskjet 3745 wii not print with new ink. The cartridge shows full and the printer goes thru all the motions. The final print is no color and light black


Use the HP software (installed when you installed the printer) to run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- you've got lots of ink, but the print-heads are CLOGGED.

Printer does not print


The following hints might help:
1. It is better to reinstall the driver (from hp site)
2. Do not on the printer until the usb cable is plug to computer
3. If it happens offen, you need to off the printer using printer switch and not from power source. You may have a habit of unplugging the usb cable without off the printer swich.. this will later lead to switch chip damage.

Hello,

This is Romeet, id like to try and help. Assuming you have windows XP installed,

go to "Start", select " Printers and Faxes"

go to your printer ( HP deskjet 3745 ) and right click it and select properties.

Click on " Print Test Page ", tell me what color does the Printout come in.
