Looks like a braille text

Open the HP Printer Toolkit (this software was installed from the CD-ROM that came with the HP printer) and run a "cleaning cycle",
because some of the ink-jets are clogged, which results in the "all-white" horizontal lines, where some part of that line should be black.

Printer lines in photo's

Click Start - All programs - HP - HP Solution center.

In HP solution center Click on the Printing Shortcuts tab. Select Photoprinting with borders or borderless. Click OK.
Then close the HP solution center. Try printing. Print photos always with Best quality.

If the issue persists check the ink level of both cartridges and use Photos Cartridge HP 58 to print photos. We insert the Photo cartridge in place of black cartridge.

How do i change the

Open the front cover on the printer. The print cartridges should slide on a conveyor belt from one far end of the print chamber to near the center. There should be one black ink cartridge and one color cartridge.
Remove the cartridges from the printer. This should simply involve grabbing and pulling the cartridges out. There may be a flap holding the cartridges in place that you need to flip up first. Or you may need to press down on the cartridges to spring them out of place.
Decide on replacing the cartridges with a brand new ones or refilling the existing cartridges. Refilling the cartridges can cost less money in the long-term and reduce waste, while new cartridges will guarantee to work and have the most ink up front.
Refill the cartridges with fresh ink in order to reuse them. With black cartridges, you need to drill or melt a hole in the cartridge lid, while you will remove the lid to find the color cartridge's holes. Inject the correct color ink with a plastic syringe bottle. Reseal the lid on a color cartridge after refilling.
Dispose of the cartridges properly after you purchase new ones. Take the old cartridges with you to whichever store you get the new ones from. Not only will this help you find the correct replacements, but the store may also take the old cartridges for recycling.
Insert the new or refilled cartridges into your printer. New cartridges likely have protective tape over the print head that you'll need to remove. Run a test print on the computer to make sure that the cartridges properly work
Check to see if the printer still reads the cartridges as being empty (if you are reusing a refilled one). This will be due to a chip in the cartridges that the printer reads for the ink level. It doesn't change just because you refilled the cartridges. You must purchase an electronic device that will reset the chip for you.

Epson stylus nx400 no ink after changing cartridges

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Why is my Epson Printer not Printing Black?

Hello, Mick - What is the model of your Epson printer? You can choose Comment and add the model number or name there. Since I have no idea what model of Epson printer you have, I also have no idea if your printer just is a black ink printer or if it can print in more than just black. Some options regarding your problem: * Your printer has run dry of black ink and needs a new black ink cartridge or an ink refill. * One or more of the color inks for your printer have run dry and you need to replace the color ink cartridges with new ones or refill the color ink reservoirs. If your printer is meant to print in both black and other colors (magenta, cyan, yellow), then, you need to know that the 3 colors are used and mixed with the black ink to make black print. So, for a color printer, one needs to have all 4 ink cartridges filled with adequate ink. Best wishes.

How can i install my printer without a cd


please follow steps to setup your printer

Install a printer driver locally Installing a printer driver is a Windows function, not a PowerPoint one. Before installing a printer driver, quit PowerPoint and your other programs.

Read over the installation instructions that came with your printer. When in doubt, follow the instructions there rather than the ones below.

  • Click Start, Settings, Control Panel.
  • Double-click "Printers & Faxes"
  • Double-click "Add Printer" to start the Add Printer Wizard

The Add Printer Wizard Welcome screen
  • Click Next

Local or Network Printer
  • Click "Local Printer"
  • Make sure there's NO checkmark next to "Automatically detect and install ..."
  • Click Next

Select a Printer Port
  • If your printer is actually attached to the computer, click "Use the following port" and select the port your printer's attached to.
  • If you're installing a driver only to keep PowerPoint happy, choose LPT1: or FILE: (it doesn't really matter, since you'll never actually print to the port)
  • If you're installing a local driver but need to print to a network printer, look for the printer's port on the network and choose it, if available. If not, choose LPT1: for now. You can change the setting later.
  • Click Next (please select canon from list)

Install Printer Software
  • If installing a real printer, select your printer manufacturer and printer model here.
  • If you have an installation disk or CD that came with the printer, click "Have Disk" and locate the INF file for the printer (check the printer's documentation for specific instructions).
  • If installing a printer only to keep PowerPoint happy, choose the HP LaserJet 4V/4MV as we've done here
  • Click Next

Name Your Printer
  • Give the printer a name (this is the name you'll use to select it later)
  • If installing a printer just to make PowerPoint happy, you might want to give it a name that indicates it isn't a real physical printer (PPT Pacifier, or the like)
  • Click "Yes" under "Do you want to use this printer as the default printer" (this option may not appear in all Windows versions; see Notes below)
  • Click Next

Printer Sharing
  • Click "Do not share this printer"
  • Click Next

Print Test Page
  • Click No
  • Click Next

Completing the Add Printer Wizard
  • Review your choices. Click Back if you need to change anything
  • Click Finish
