My printout is grainy when I print from any application. What should I do?
Try the following solutions:
- Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper facedown in the cassette or faceup in the rear MP tray.
- Select a higher print quality setting and turn off any high speed settings in your product software.
- Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.
- Align the print head.
- You may need to increase the image resolution or print a smaller size; see your software documentation.
