My printout is grainy when I print from any application. What should I do?
If your printouts are grainy, try these solutions:
- Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper faceup in the sheet feeder.
- Select a higher print quality setting and turn off any high speed settings in your product software.
- Clean the print head.
- Align the print head.
- You may need to increase the image resolution or print a smaller size; see your software documentation.
