Troubleshooting – Print quality issues

  • Sometimes the quality of a printed document or photo may not be as expected. Follow the steps below to resolve the print quality issue.
  • If you observe that the black ink is missing or faded on your printouts, print only with the tri-color cartridge. While doing it, remove the black ink cartridge.
  • If the printer does not operate correctly in single-cartridge mode or you are not satisfied with the print quality, use genuine HP ink cartridges.
  • The print quality issues can be overcome only when the printer is inactive. Do not try any print job for about 30 minutes and then attempt printing.
  • Make sure that the paper is appropriate for the print job. If it is not, reload the printer with clean, wrinkle-free paper in the printer.
  • Ensure that you check the print settings in your envy4501 printer to resolve the issue.
  • Go to Ink Levels on the printer’s control panel to check the estimated ink levels on your printer.
  • Replace any low or empty ink cartridge and then follow the instructions on the control panel to start the cartridge alignment.
  • Now, print a Print Quality Diagnostic report and then examine it for defects.
  • Run an automatic tool to clean the ink cartridges and for best print quality, align the ink cartridges.
  • Manually clean the area around the ink nozzles and if the issue persists, replace the ink cartridge. If the issue still persists, service the printer.
