That result certainly defeats the purpose of using "high" quality and now the rollers are dirty, too.

 

First off, clean the printer and the cartridges, too, if they need it.

Black or Color Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues

 

 

Observations / Suggestions

 

The printer may not like the paper - for example, this is an Officejet small business and home printer - HP Advanced Paper is going to provide decent prints and Premium paper may not work as expected.   This is a document printer that also prints pretty good photos, brochures, and related image printing.

 

Documents, on the other hand, likely (should) look super great when printed on high-grade paper (24lb cover or bond, super white).

 

What to do?

  1. Clean the printer, cut back to normal quality, use decent grade HP Advanced photographic paper.
  2. Maximize the color (hue and saturation) settings as available in your photo viewing / editing software.
