@Kk2333

 

Thank you for the information.

 

Are you using HP genuine ink cartridges?

 

Please let us know are you able to make the photocopy without any issue.

 

Please print the Print Quality Diagnostic report from the printer control panel, then evaluate the results.

  1. Make sure to load the input tray with plain, white paper.

  2. On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch Setup.

  3. Touch Tools.

  4. Swipe up on the display, and then touch Print Quality Report.

    A Print Quality Diagnostic report prints.

  5. Keep the Print Quality Diagnostic report for easy reference later in this document.

Examine the color blocks for defects

Examine the color blocks on the Print Quality Diagnostic report to make sure the color blocks do not show white lines and are not faded or missing.

  • If the color blocks do not show white lines and are not faded or missing

Align the printer

Aligning the ink cartridges correctly aligns the printhead with the printer. Align the printer from the printer control panel, then evaluate the results.

  1. Make sure to load the input tray with plain, white paper.

  2. On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch Setup.

  3. Touch Tools.

  4. Swipe up on the display, then touch Align Printer.

    An alignment page prints.

  5. Wait for the alignment page to fully eject from the printer.

    NOTE: 

    Before a print job, the printer automatically extends the output tray extender. Do not push in the output tray extender until the print job is complete.

  6. Lift the scanner lid.

  7. Place the alignment page with the print side down on the scanner glass. Position it according to the engraved guides around the glass.

  8. Close the scanner lid, then touch OK

    The printer aligns the ink cartridges.

  9. Try to print again.

Also, refer to the below link as well.
