Solved!

Black ink smearing and patchy

HP6EADA6(Hp DeskJet 2600 series)
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

A little while after installing my second HP instant ink cartridge the ink quality became poor - streaky and patchy, mainly with the black. Print levels are fine and I did a print quality diagnostic which told me to clean the cartridges but that did not work. Tried through virtual chat to chat to an adviser but no one was available (during office hours!). As impossible to speak to a real person I do not know what to do.

Thank you Asmita. As I said in my post, I already checked the ink level and according to my Instant Ink account page there is plenty of ink. I have been through all the suggestions from that page of how to fix the problem and they did not work. If you could send me some new ink in case there is a problem with the ink cartridges I have, that would be a next step I'd imagine.

 

Thank you!
