Sounds like a bad toner cartridge or a bad fuser. Try a different cartridge and also try running a cleaning page.

Change the toner cartridge, refilling will not solve the problem.

Remove the rear door by pulling it down and squeezing the left tab to remove it.

Press the blue hooks and remove the fuser. Look for a worn coating on the gray roller.

It is printing but the lettered is fuzzy


Best practice is to indicate device, brand, and model when querying about printers. Solutions vary by such often.

The blurring could be caused by the type of paper being used. Or, too much paper being in the printer. It can also be caused by substances adhering to the ribbon (where one is part of the setup). Then there is a potential problem with a fuser in a laserjet.

For example:

Printed documents print ghosted blurry grainy doubled or with smudges What...

My printer prints blurrey out of focus pictures. I download from my camera and print a few on photogaph paper. This happened once before and for reasons that evade me it cleared up and printed fine. ...


Before replacing this awesome printer try this steps first.

First check the paper you're using, load the paper with the printing side down.

In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print .

Make sure the appropriate printer is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties.

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.

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.

I have a HP 7590 printer and it sometimes skips line or some of the lines are faded when printing black .


Perform the following steps to reduce or eliminate faded or grainy lines:
  1. Print at a higher quality setting.
  2. Verify that the paper you are printing on will lay flat. Paper that is not laying flat can cause banding when the paper transitions over the rollers or cause the print cartridges to scrape across the surface of the page. Check the top sheet of paper by removing it from the all-in-one and placing it on a flat surface. If the paper does not lie flat, bend it in the opposite direction to straighten it.

My printer is printing blurry lines when im trying to print. grr


Are you using Inkjet paper? or normal office rag? The inkjet paper dosent let the ink soak into it and make lines look blurry, it is amade to dry the ink very fast before it can leak around... Get some good quality "inkjet" paper, you should see better results.
Leave feedback good or bad.

PRINT IS BLURRY


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.

Double Blurry Print


Usually hairs sticking to the underside of the print head causes this.

I gave a solution to an Epson CX6400 user who needed to physically clean his print head. Look this up in the solutions. It involves using folded kitchen roll under the print head with the printer switched off and the head unlocked and free floating.

It would take me ages to type this again so please look this up.

The user had jammed paper and cleared the jam but had paper stuch to the underside of his print head.

I hope this helps.

HP 1610 printer


It occurred to me when I was reading your post that photo paper has printing and non-printing sides. If the paper is loaded upside down, it's printing on the non-print side, which would result in what you're seeing. It's just a hunch, but you might want to consider it.

HP.com has a web page that will walk you through the process of checking on this and other potential problems.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
