Faint Printout or Printout Has Gaps
If your printouts are faint or have gaps, try these solutions:
Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.
Make sure the initial ink charging is complete.
The ink levels may be low. Visually check the ink levels.
If any ink levels are below the lower line, refill the ink tanks.
Make sure the paper type setting matches the type of paper you loaded.
Make sure your paper is not damp, curled, old, or loaded incorrectly in your product.
Align the print head.
Adjust the print quality in the product software.
If you have not used the product for a long time, run the Power Cleaning utility.
Power Cleaning consumes a lot of ink, so run this utility only if you cannot improve print quality by cleaning the print head.
