My printout is blurry or smeared. What should I do?

  • Check the following:
    • If the paper is curled toward the printable side, flatten it or curl it slightly in the opposite direction.
    • Clear the High Speed check box in your printer driver.

      For Windows, check the settings in the Advanced window.

      For Mac OS X, check the settings in the Print Settings menu in the Print dialog box.
    • Make sure the paper type selected in the printer driver is appropriate for the type of paper loaded in the printer. See Selecting the Correct Paper Type or Media Type.
    • Uninstall the printer driver, then reinstall it by following the software installation instructions for your operating system on the Start Here sheet (for a USB connection) or Network Installation Guide (for a network connection).
