HP 8500

I have an Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless -A909g printer and am running Windows 7. When I try to print either multiple copies of a color document or a lengthy color document, the colors begins to fade and change as I print the 3rd or 4th pages and continues to degrade. This happens regardless of the paper type (regular paper or card stock). I have plenty of ink, etc. and don't know where to start on resolving this problem. I would appreciate help on resolving this issue

Re: HP 8500 (faded print quality)

Hi Judy

Any luck if you clean the printhead and calibrate the linefeed? More details in the link below.....
