    Here is the support site for the HP Deskjet F2180 All-In-One.

    You should add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

    Here is the "Solve a problem - Print quality" section that you might want to browse through.

    Its a faulty black cartridge commonly seen with re-filled/re-manufactured cartridges, even the test print quality is very poor.

    HP printers are finicky about using refilled and generic cartridges. You also risk damaging the printer by using them. Stick with genuine new HP cartridges.
