Welcome to FixYa!
Solution 1. You might want to check the ink levels of your printer. One of the ink color might be out. Your printer uses the C,M,Y (one cartridge) and K (another cartridge). The printer mixes this colors (C,M,Y,K = cyan, magenta, yellow and pink) to produce the right colors including black.
Solution 2. Please do a printer head cleaning. You can do it using your printers software maintenance option.
Thank you for using FixYa.Have a great day.

Fuzzy printing


Try a reset to factory defaults. Or a hard reset. Or driver reinstall. If nothing works then you have a physical issue with unit.

My printer does not print the test page the text. It only print the microsoft logo.


Most of the "text" on the "test-page" requires that the BLACK ink on the printer is working correctly. Refill or replace the BLACK ink-cartridge.

Change cartridge printer selects for black


Simply put...you cannot. The smaller cart is the dye black, which is used for picture printing. The larger is the pigment black which is used for text printing. You could try printing text as artwork, but i'm not sure this will work, besides, dye ink will bleed on regular paper and not look so crisp.

Red text and lines appear in Black text


The red line is indicating a HYPERLINK to the email address of the user name, or other linked text in the Email.

If you are printing a program, you will not be printing anything with a hyperlink, so that should not be an issue.

You are using HP's cartridge with the smallest output . So if you are printing 80 pages of text, you will have a problem by the time you reach 95 or 100 pages. If you are printing in color, you only have 1ml/color. Meaning 3 colors. But in order to print a red, it will combine a magenta and yellow to product 1 color. So 3 colors doesn't mean 3 ml worth of colors. Effectively you may only be able to print 10-20 pages of color then your cartridge is empty. The black cartridge has about 4-5ml of ink. So if you print a lot I suggest you get another printer.

Prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer


make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.

 

If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up

Printer Ignoring Black Text


Assuming the print tests you've done so far are built into the printer: Could be worth printing a test page from the printer properties box (which you can get in XP from the START menu, Settings, Printers & Faxes, then Right click on the printer you want and select Properties from the dropdown. If the test page is OK, I'd try printing from a few different applications to see if that narrows the problem down. If the test page has the same problem, then you might try reinstalling the printer driver. A.
