I have recentley set up a HP Photosmart 7510 wireless printer. My pictures are dark. Also the first batch had lines running across the photos. They are not as visible now after printing about 10 pictures. Thanks for any help.

Thank you for your quick respond. I will have to wait for a bit as the cartridges that came with my new printer need to be replaced which I will do within the next few days. I have read the document you sent and will try all of that info. I am using HP photo paper tho already.

I had that same problem and I think I found 2 solutions. I thought I should share. I think the second solution is a better option.
I found that if I wanted to adjust the brightness of the photo, I put my photos onto a camera memory card and slide it into the SD drive (front left bottom corner) of the printer.
Then click on photos --> view print --> memory card --> select the photo you want to print --> edit --> adjust brightness
You can also find the instructions to the darkness at this link
However, the photo that came out was better but the color was faded. The second solution should fix this problem.
At the edit photo menu (same place as where you want to adjust brightness of the photo), I turned the automatic retouching off and did not change the brightness.
The photo that came out pretty good.
I hope this helps! I am going to try to look for a program/software that can adjust the brightness and automatic retouching options through the computer.
This is how my photos look.
Top photo: auto touch up was off
Bottom photo: Brightness increased
