Check the margin settings
Make sure the margin settings for the document do not exceed the printable area of the
device. For more information, see

Set minimum margins


Check the color print settings
Make sure Print in Grayscale is not selected in the print driver.

Check the device location and length of USB cable
High electromagnetic fields (such as those generated by USB cables) can sometimes
cause slight distortions to printouts. Move the device away from the source of the
electromagnetic fields. Also, it is recommended that you use a USB cable that is less than
3 meters (9.8 feet) long to minimize the effects of these electromagnetic fields.

Check the ink cartridges
Make sure the correct ink cartridges are installed and the ink cartridges are not low on
ink. For more information, see
