Z2100 low quality prints

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently getting low quality prints from this printer. Compared to prints from when it was new and prints from other printers, you can really see the difference. Attached is a diagnostic print, and the PK and MK are no where near dark enough. I have replaced all the Ink and recently the PK-LG printhead as for some reason the LG stopped printing entirely. I have run through the Printhead realignment and the clean processes.


Any ideas?

I have a 24" Z2100 & it print very beautiful giclee paintings, as good as my Z3100 with 12 colors.


#1,the most important,   you should do color calibration for your media loaded, also do printhead alignment.


Make sure both pass. also do a diagnstic print & make sure all colors there.


if you have photoshop, open the image file, make sure it is a hi rez image with good  colors,

edit its size, colors, sharpness etc as you want.


then convert the image to that media icc profile, after you define the print size, pick the best quality,

prior to print, pick photoshop manage color   your media icc profile  ...
