    I have a Dell AIO 810 2in1 Printer.

    The scanner works fine, well. The printer for awhile has not been working so well. It is a new cartridge of color/black ink. It prints out pages that look like this, one it don't print everything on the page, some of it is cut off, and well you can see the color of it, faded orange, when it is suppose to be black and green. It used to be faded red at first.

    Whats the deal? I hate printers, always have had problems with them.

    HELP!!!!!

    Link is the manual for your printer which tells how to clean the print cartridges.

    Ah, alright I will clean them out.

    Yet, the pages don't seem to print how they should either, like parts of the pages are gone, or cut off. Is that the print cartridges and heads doing that as well?
