My printout is grainy when I print from any application. What should I do?

    Check the following:
    • Make sure the printable side of the paper is face up. It's usually brighter or whiter.
    • Select a higher Quality Option or Print Quality, and turn off High Speed and Fast Economy or Economy mode in the printer software.
    • Select Photo RPM for Quality Type (Windows) or Print Quality (Macintosh). Remember that this setting increases print time.
    • Align the print head.
    • You may need to increase the image resolution or print in a smaller size; see your software documentation.
    • Try printing a different image to determine if the problem is limited to one image. If it is, you may need to recreate your original image.
