@NouraMish, thank you for the information. Let ys try these steps to resolve the print quality issues:

  • Have you tried printing different types of documents like PDF or photos and check if the issue persists?

Clean the ink cartridges

  1. Make sure your Android or Apple iOS device is on the same wireless network as your printer.

  2. Open HP Smart, and then select HP Tango or Tango X, if it is not already selected.

  3. Tap Printer Settings.

  4. Under Tools, tap Print Quality Tools.

  5. Next to Clean Printhead, tap Clean.

    After the printhead cleaning procedure, the printer prints a Print Quality Diagnostic report.

  6. Examine the print quality on the Print Quality Diagnostic report. Check if the issue persists.

For more info on resolving print quality issues, refer to this document.

 

Let me know how this goes.
