Last printer I bought was an HP. I seldom used it for printing - sometimes went a month or two without using it - and when I did, the result would be faded and unreadable. Bought new ink cartridges. Had the same problem. Looked to Youtube. They told me it's often the case that the printer heads get gunked up if they're not used often enough. Can't remove the printer head to clean it. Ended up throwing the whole unit away.
Got a new one, an Envy Photo 7155. Ooh, fancy. Surely this one will work. First print had a few imperfections, but was acceptable. Didn't use it to print for a few months. Just tried to print today. Same problem. Faded, streaked, and unreadable. Readout says ink is still about 1/3 full. Still can't remove printer heads to clean it. Looks like the same problem. HP is a scam.
