Faded print on dell c1765nfw

Printer has been working brilliantly for approx. 2 months but now the black ink is appearing as grey and I can't get it to print any darker - I have tried running maintenance cleaning fixes but printing is still very faded, the more pages I print the lighter it gets - any ideas?

Hate to sound obvious but have you tried replacing the ink cartridge?

Is it out of color ink? It will not print true black if you do not have ALL print cartridges working.

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Hi

I suggest you clean it manually by removing the ink cartridge and rub the print head into a paper with alochol and then run the print nozzle for 2 times to clear some ink residue that cause darken color

In black print every other line is darker than each other


Try cleaning the print heads by this method:
1 Press Menu
2 Press the down arrow until "Clean printhead" shows.
3 Press OK
4 Press OK

If this doesn't work, then insert a step after 3: press down once to select the "deep clean." If this doesn't fix it either then you will need to replace the print heads. This document from Kodak will describe how to do that under "Maintenance"

Black cardstock


There is no white ink in the printer. White needs to come from the paper.
The inks in your printer can only make your paper DARKER, and you can't get any darker than black.

Black colour ?


Thats because it's using the other colours to mix what it thinks to be shades of grey. Due to the black ink being pigment based and the colours inks dye base, when printing onto glossy paper the machine will use the colour dye based inks to make up black. 
If you were to print on plain paper, set to greyscale, then the machine will just use the black as the pigment ink sits onto of the plain paper and will not run should the paper get wet.  With glossy paper the ink has to be absorbed into the paper ad the Black pigment ink will not do this so the machine will use the coloured inks.

Sucks but true.

Prints grey not black


I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.

Grey & Black Printing on everything


Hi,
it appears that the printhead has a problem. try cleaning the printhead, via software. usually in printer prefs. also try running a few test pages. to see if you have any colours at all. if it,s only printing in grey scale. i.e grey-black. check the colour cartridges ink has,nt run out or blocked the nozzles.
Hope this helps [email protected]
