    Well my problem is that my printer is either printing the top of words or the bottom of words.It will sometimes print the whole word with it either light at the top/bottom.It was a rarely use printer so its still relatively new.It's a HP Deskjet 3740 series, any help would be appreciated.

    have you tried cleaning the ink heads?
    if you go to printers, then right click on the printer with problems, go to properties. somewhere in the window will be tools, and you can clean or flush the heads, try that. or try calibrating.

    if that doesn't work, i would say buy ink, but since ink is so expensive i would say buy a new printer.

    I've always wondered why ink is so expensive.OK 00tray I did what you suggested and all is well now, I didn't even know that there was a feature in the printing software to do this. Thanks again.

    glad to help...

    ink is expensive because thats how hp and other companies make a large portion of their profits. once locked into a printer you are forced to buy their ink. although now there are some third party inks on the market that about half the price. you can also refill your old cartridges, but you have to get a little resetter tool to reset the levels. i used to do this at my old job since we were on grants and had no money....
