Photoshop Printing Problem

Posted on 2006-03-24
Last Modified: 2010-04-03

I use Photoshop CS2, I mainly use to print off graphics onto Hp Transparency Film, and I print with a Hp Deskjet 720C. I will select Hp Transparency Film for the Paper in Best print quality so there is a heavy print.

However, for some reason its not printing out in Best quality when I select this setup, its printing out a very light coating of Black ink, almost transparent.

My printer will print as normal on all other settings, have done something in the Photoshop settings? I have also tried putting in a new cartridge. Dpi is 300.

    Hi, azpect,

    Not sure what to say here as it seems you have everything set up correctly.  HP printer, HP transparencies, HP (new) cartridge.  

    If it's printing out on paper fine, then there's no point in cleaning the head.  One (possible) thought is that you might be putting the transparency in backwards (so that it's printing on the wrong side...I think that matters but not sure).

    Finally, you have placed this in the Photoshop TA.  Are you saying the transparency prints off just fine in other programs (as a test)?

    Is there a difference if you go to print preview the check the box "scale to fit to media" and then print?

    Thanks for trying, i still could not find out why this was happening with this file, however other files so seem to printing correctly, so i have done something to this one which will remain unknown.

    Thanks anyway
