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

Re: blurry text print with ghost image
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.

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.
