HP Inkjet Printer Problems
Inkjet printer is the most common type of printer where the printing is done by thrusting the liquid ink droplets on to the paper surface. These printers are available for personal and professional use and range from inexpensive pieces to the little costlier ones. However, few issues have been found common in these printers.
- Printer fails to communicate
- Inferior print quality
- Ghost printing
Printer fails to communicate
This is a situation where the HP inkjet printer fails to establish communication with your system and hence would not take your command for printing any document. You should switch off the printer and disconnect it from the computer and then check if all the cables are plugged in properly or not. Make sure that the power supply is consistent and then turn on the power to check your printer. It should work fine.
Inferior print quality
In this case your HP inkjet printer will print your documents but the quality of print would be highly compromised. It could be faded or accompanied by white lines after each print. This will make your document look very bad. Such a problem arises when the printer nozzles are blocked or the printer cartridge head has gone bad or the head is unclean. Check for each possibility and make sure you fix it by taking corrective actions.
This is a situation where your printer prints your documents perfectly, but also prints a lighter version of the same elsewhere, hence called ghost printing. This is mainly caused due to faulty power supply to your printer. Unplug the power cord and plug it to a different printing machine to see if the printer problem still occurs. Also check the printing drums and other components of the printer for their expiry. If they are nearing expiry then it might be the reason for ghost printing.
