Hi there and welcome

computer not with me at the moment

is it connecting to it via wireless or USB?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

thanks, ***** ***** is to connect it to a different USB port on the computer and tell me if this clears it please.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
will that clear the ghosting

This can be the cause of it so there is a good chance for it, else the print head may require cleaning.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Printhead has been cleaned

ok, then try the different USB port as this is one of the most common causes.

I will mark this question to never close, so if you continue to have problems, you can let me know here

And if you can take a second to rate my service for now, by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
