Deskjet F4580 prints double

HP Deskjet F4580
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Model: HP Deskjet F4580 CB755-64001

Computer: Surface pro 4 Win 10

 

I have two cartridges (Black, Color). B is original, C is refilled.

The problem is that when I print (pdf or jpg) I get a uniform shadow (see pictures). This seems to happen when both cartridges are used.

Here are some informations:

 

WITH BOTH CARTRIDGES INSERTED

- If I select "only print in grey nuances", the problem persists.

- If I change the quality of the printing or select the saving ink option, the problem persists.

WITH JUST ONE CARTRIDGE INSERTED (only B or only C)

- the printing is fine

 

Some more informations:

The colored copy is affected by the problem. The B copy is not.

The trial page is affected by the problem.

The alignment page is not affected.

I already tried aligning! I already tried completely uninstalling the printer and the drivers, but the problem persists.

 

Please, can someone help me?

Can you print a configuration page from this YT video tutorial and how does it look?

Looks good to me, as explained in the video if configuration page is printed fine then you have a computer-related problem. By printing configuration page you eliminated computer and driver.

 

When I first read your post I was like 99% sure that this is a computer issue, not printer related.

The only thing that still confuses me you wrote: The colored copy is affected by the problem. The B copy is not

 

Can you confirm that once more, make a color copy of something if it's good then the problem is in your computer if it's not good then my theory of blaming a computer is wrong?

Strange, it could be that refilled C cartridge got bad or just the printer got bad.

 

When this problem first occurred, and when did you installed C cartridge?

Unfortunately, it's an apartment for rent, so I can't track the origins of the problem... I remember having tried last year with two other (refilled) cartridges and having the exact same issues. 

 

EDIT: here is the proof. This is the back of the notebook: one copy is BW, the other is C. As you can see the shadow only appears in the colored copy.

I bought new original cartridges. Same thing. I bought another printer, same model (found second hand one on the internet near me). Same thing. It's honestly incredible: it must actually be the printer since both do it when copying. But fk it's 2 different printers. How is it even possible?

@roddik

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Is the Printer connected directly to a wall outlet? If not, please do and check.

 

Also. try updating the Printer firmware: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02919168

 

Let me know if this helps.
