    I have an HP 1350 all-in-one printer and just out of the blue it hasn't been printing properly. I bought new printer cartridges what did not fix it. I seem to be getting a ghosting effect I'm not sure how to explain but I scanned some prints. Hope someone can help.

    Aside from cleaning the glass....can you see anything built up under the glass?

    Is it still under warranty?


    EDIT: if you are printing from the computer instead of copying, then I'd really think it was a hardware problem.

    No there is nothing under the glass that how the picture actually looks but maybe not as grainy and no its not under warrenty anymore. I put up the self test report it still does that weird thing.

    The thing about printers now-a-days, is they are disposable items. Most often it's cheaper to buy a new one than to even replace the color and B&W cartridges :eek:

    The all-in-ones aren't far behind. I have 2. An OJ G55 and G85. One has crap under the glass (how it got into a "SEALED" area is beyond me) so that when I scan, I have cute little roller pictures on the side :rolleyes: The other one, so far so good.

    But like I barely had this for 2 years and barely used and it breaks, and then on the other hand I have a really old HP 812c which is I dunno a really long time and I never had one problem with that but it ran out of ink, ugh I might as well pull that one out of the closet and buy new ink for that. At least the scanner still works...:(

    Yes it looks like a hardware problem. Try giving the printer a good cleaning. It might be dirt on the carage slides or the plastic strip it reads may be dirty or damaged. Check the carrage drive belt for a small piece of paper stuck to it also. I'm guessing carrage because the problem is in the same spot if you notice that the color head is a few inches over from the black head.. BOL
