HP printer prints dull images.

asked Jul 8, 2014 in 2D Printing Problems by Marvin90 (130 points)
My inkjet printer is acting up these past couple of days, it was working fine last week when I bought it but now the texts look so lifeless.
I am pretty sure it can't be because of low ink, because I just bought a new one.
It mixes up colours and sometimes just prints only one part. It's just acting up.
Is it something with the printer or the cartridge perhaps or maybe some colour setting?
 I would really appreciate if you could answer this one please, thanks.

You said that you just bought a new ink, but sometimes even new ones come with defects.
 Just check for low inks or any toner messages, if you are wondering how to do that, here it is:-

 Start -  Control Panel - Hardware and Sound, then double click the printer that you are using,

(you can also open this from the notification area or you can also check for those messages from on the printer itself for some models, I don't know which one's yours, but you can give it a try too)

In most of these cases the Ink or the cartridge need to be changed/replaced.
I would suggest you to check with the print queue for low inks or any toner messages, if you notice anything unusual just let me know, or don't wait just go to the store and ask for replacement, since it is new they want charge you a penny. Trust me, just go and do it soon, Bye T.c.
