Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the "print quality" issue.
Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.
To better assist you -
1) Are you able to copy in color?
2) What's the application you are trying to print from? Have you tried printing from a different application or device?
While you respond to that, let's print a Print Quality Diagnostic page
Load plain white paper in the input tray.
On the printer control panel, swipe down to open the Dashboard, touch the Setup icon , swipe up on the display, touch Reports, and then touch Print Quality Report.
Post the Print Quality Diagnostic page here so we can help you further.
