Scanning quality issue hp 3735

Suddenly, the colours of every paper put in the scanning part (to copy or to scan) are very bad. Seems faded (attached). Do you think it is a hardware issue or how can I fix it?

Hi @Stef_11

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.

 

Are you using a HP Deskjet 3735 printer?

 

Let us try these steps:

 

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  4. Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  5. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.
