My MX340 isn't printing correctly...
My MX340 isn't printing correctly. It will print images but not text. When I send a Word document to the printer (or email for that matter), the text won't print. But, images will. The clean nozzle pattern prints ok. Just not text.

Reinstalling the printer did not fix the printing problem.

.
Ok that does not make sense if black is printing properly on this page but not others.
Unless all the other items you tried to print were word documents were they?
.

Word documents, emails, pdf's, nothing prints. Well, almost nothing prints. On an email, the text of the email didn't print but the hyperlinks (web page addresses) did print. Nothing else is printing.

.
Ok you said before this page printed out perfectly.
Please print it again and let me know what if anything is missing.

It prints the main header, your picture and empty text boxes. Nothing else.

.
Ok before you said it printed the text as well not that it is not we know the problem is not software at all.
Only a hardware error can cause one cartridge not to print while the other still does.

Let's try doing a manual cleaning of the machine and see if that helps at all.
If you have any trouble or get stuck at any point please let me know so I can help you.

Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine.
Then clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself.
Do this with a small amount of warm water on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.
If any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them.

Now once you have done all of that turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there.

If this did not work please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
If it did work please don’t forget to leave a positive rating it is greatly appreciated.
