How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

The ink levels may be low and you may need to refill the ink. Visually check the ink levels. Also make sure you filled the tanks with the correct colors of ink. After you print, the colors in your printout need time to set as the ink dries.
Here are the most common causes of a printer printing faded text or images: Low ink or toner levels. Toner sticking to the fuser roller or problems with the transfer roller. Low ink or toner density settings.
Air exposure causes your prints to fade by a process called oxidation and, short of sorting your photos in a perfect vacuum, you can`t stop it. Assuming you don`t have access to a perfect vacuum, your photographs resistance to air will depend on the type of ink it uses.
A common cause of faded, faint printouts from your inkjet printer is dried ink particles causing a blockage in your printer. The printheads on an ink cartridge can be become blocked if the printer is not used for a period of time, so it is recommended to print a few pages each month to maintain the print quality.
To fix a washed-out picture, you can adjust the brightness and contrast and try adjusting the levels or curves to bring back the detail in the highlights and shadows. Additionally, using color correction tools to adjust the white balance and color saturation can help improve the image`s overall appearance.
Wearing way too much, wearing none at all, or wearing a color that doesn`t match your skintone are all big no-no`s. Why? Skipping it completely while still adding other makeup (like mascara) can make your skin look washed out.
Your paper may be moist or damp. Do not store your paper in a humid or damp environment. The Toner Save mode may be on. Turn off the Toner Save mode using the printer driver.
There may be several reasons behind the issue, such as empty ink cartridges, Clogged Print Head Nozzles, and Incorrect Print Settings. There may be a fault in the settings of Color Management as well. You can fix it via Running a Nozzle Check or enabling the Print Settings to Color or Replacing the Ink Cartridges.
Open the Basic Settings dialog box. Click Advanced, then click More Settings. The following dialog box appears. Choose Color or Black as the Color setting.

My 2550n Color LaserJet does not want to print in color
ANSWER : That model had issues with the carousel solenoid sticking. That might explain why it works after you let it sit for 10 minutes. The solenoid gets hotter with use which causes the deteriorated foam on it to become sticky and hold down the release plate instead of letting it go. This allows the carousel to spin when it is supposed to stop for each color. The solenoid is located on the right side of the printer. If you open the lid, it is just behind the opening at the top right. You need to remove the top of the printer and scrape off the goo on top of the solenoid body. I put a piece of thin sticky backed felt to replace it. Other people use electrical tape.
