Fixing Poor Print Quality

  2. Check if the ink icon light is flashing, then check the estimated ink level. Replace or refill the ink cartridge that is low in ink level. Make sure that the Paper Type selected in the printer software is appropriate for the type of paper loaded in the printer.
  3. Make sure that you are using an acceptable paper type. Make sure the paper used is not damaged or wrinkled. You can check the specifications for more information. Place the printer on a flat and stable surface. Clean the rollers with a damp, lint-free cloth.
  4. Check the cartridge unit. Uninstall the cartridges from the printer. Clean the contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge slot with a damp, lint-free cloth. Remove the printhead from the cartridge assembly and clean it with a wet paper towel.
  5. Make sure the dried ink is removed from the printhead nozzles. Reinstall the printhead and cartridges into the HP OfficejetPro7740 Printer carriage. Now, the printer will automatically print an alignment page. Check if the print quality has improved.

Printhead Problem Error
