    Hello

    My brother just gave me his Dell 720 printer, it is almost brand new and cartridges are 3/4 full. I have used it about 10 times. Today when i tried to print the words came out real light and smugged, i selected the option "print only in black and white" to save the colour ink.
    I tried the colour option but it wasnt much better. I did a test page from the Dell options window and the colour was good, black and white were very faint.

    I am using windows XP

    Thank you

    Dan

    Did you thank your brother for being so generous ?
    you probably need a new black catridge, does your brother have a spare ?
    if no cartridge, is there a "cleaning" option in the print queue or prnter option. Sometimes the ink dries and a few cleaning passes is all it takes.
