Black ink smudged

HP Recommended
HP Inkjet 3762

Black Ink smudging. Have had this printer a year and it's only just started doing this. have cleaned the print heads many times but it hasn't worked! I am on the HP printing plan so HP send me cartridges when one is running out, therefore I don't have a spare ink to try out. Does anyone know how to remedy? Thankyou!

@melanie67, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Are you trying to print in black or color?

Which ink is smudging?

 

Make sure you have tried the steps from this document to resolve this issue -  Fixing Poor Print Quality

 

If the issue persists, as the issue is related to Instant ink cartridges, I need more information to help you out.

This looks like a hardware issue.

 

Please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.

 

Hope this helps!
