For more information, see Loading Paper.
Probable Cause 2
More than one type of paper is loaded.
Load only one type of paper.
Print spotted.
Paper may be dirty.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to wipe clean. For excessive dirt or debris, thoroughly clean the paper tray, and load new paper.
NOTE: Keep paper tray covers closed to keep dust and debris from collecting on the paper or inside the printer.
Print too dark.
NOTE: For best results, use only Dell Ink cartridges and paper for your printer.

Ensure that the printer is not placed in direct sunlight or is not operating in a high-temperature environment (higher than 95° F, or 35° C).
Close unnecessary software applications.
Ensure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements. Upgrade your system if necessary.
White Edges on Borderless Prints.
Probable Cause
White edges can appear when there are slight misalignments between the printer and paper. Some software applications are able to "hide" these small
misalignments so that the prints look borderless like they are supposed to.
Use the application's Fit to Page/Fill Page option, or resize the picture so it is slightly larger than the paper size.
Copying Problems
Check for blinking lights or error messages on the printer.
For more information, see Error Messages.
Ensure that the scanner glass is clean.
If the scanner glass is dirty, gently wipe it with a clean, lint-free cloth dampened with water.
Check paper sizes.

Copies faded or dull colors.
Probable Cause 1
The copy quality is set to Draft.
Set the copy quality to Normal or Best.
For more information, see Changing Copy Settings.
Probable Cause 2
The brightness setting for copies is set too light.

General Guidelines for Selecting or Loading Print Media
Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause paper jams and poor print quality.
Use only high-quality, copier-grade paper for the best print quality.
Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or rough. Paper jam may occur.
Store paper in its packaging until you are ready to use it. Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the media.
Keep paper away from moisture or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
Store unused paper at temperatures ranging between 15°C and 30°C (59°F and 86°F). The relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
During storage, you should use moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating the paper.
Avoiding Jams and Misfeeds
You can avoid most jams and misfeeds by following these guidelines:
Ensure that the media is properly loaded in the input tray.
Do not overload the input tray.
Do not remove media from the input tray while printing.
Flex, fan, and straighten the paper before loading.
Do not use creased, damp, or curled paper.
Orient the media according to the instructions for the printer.
