How do I cure blurry printing please?

You don't say what type of printer you have (some have built-in utilities that can guide you to correct things) but generally speaking, if text print is coming out blurry, you may want to look at the following:

1) Check your ink cartridge. Is it dirty? Is it plugged (clogged)? A good cleaning may help by removing your ink cartridge and swabbing the print head nozzle (check your manual for location) with isopropyl alcohol with a cotton Q-tip. Run a test print. Still a problem? You may need to do this about 3 or 4 times before it clears. If your printer head is way down indide the printer, you can get an eye dropper and drop some isopropyl alcohol on it.

2) Check your quality settings. Perhaps someone had changed the settings from "Best Quality," for instance, to "Draft." Make your changes and click Save. Run a test print.

3) Check your paper type. Do you have the right type of paper for your printer? Inkjet printers require inkjet paper, whereas laser printers require laser paper. Mixing the two will produce poor print quality. I am assuming you have normal copy paper in your printer tray, which is fine.

4) Check for printer software updates. Have you tried reinstalling your printer again, especially your printer drivers? If your printer is an older model, perhaps a software update is needed. Go to the manufacturers website and see if there are any new print drivers for your model. Run a test print.

5) Replace your print cartridge. This could simply be an issue of your cartridge being too old, drying up or defective. After installing new cartridge, run a test print.

Hope this helps!

How do I get rid of shadows on my printing from my HP Photosmart C3180 printer? There is an extra shadow behind EVERY single piece of text. It makes the whole page look blurry. It isn't as if t

I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.

My kodak 5100 printer is having problems printing black text

Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the printhead:

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.

My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.
