Streaky photo prints

HP OfficeJet Pro 6960
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

When I copy one of my own photos to Microsoft Publisher 2010, it prints perfectly, Until recently, the same could be said when I 'copy image' from the web to Publisher. But now, they come out streaky, as if the inks are running out - which is not the case. Can anyone offer me a solution to this problem. Many thanks.

 

PS: I have tried doing Print-head maintenance/cleaning but this had no effect.

Streaky photo prints

@Minister86, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Update the printer firmware

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates. For more information, go to Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware.

 

Let us try uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers-

 

1) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features 

2) Select your HP Printer 

3) Select Uninstall 

4) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers 

5) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove Device’ 

6) Open up the run command with the “Windows key + R” key combo. 

7) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe”

😎 Click on the “Drivers” tab 

9) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom 

10) Select Ok 

11) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows 

12) Close Devices and Printers.

 

Now, download and install the full-featured software from here.

 

If the issue persists, try the Windows built-in drivers. Follow the steps below:

 

•    Uninstall the existing drivers first. Go to Control Panel - Devices and printers - Click on "Add printer" and follow the on-screen instructions.

•    When the page prompts for the drivers, select "Windows update". The driver list will be updated.

•    Click HP, Hewlett Packard, or Hewlett-Packard in the Manufacturer pane, and then click the name of your printer in the Printers pane.

 

Refer to this document HP Printers - Installing and Using the Windows Built-in Print Driver for help.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
