PRO-100 B&W prints intermittently blurry and wet.

No apparent rhyme or reason. I've had the printer about a month and this just started recently.

I know this may sound obvious but when that happens to me, it’s because I’ve printed on the wrong side of the paper.

Verify you are printing on the correct side of the paper.

Thank you John. I also found this answer elsewhere in the forum. Some of them were indeed printed on the wrong side; I don't know about the others, which appear to have been on the glossy side. Will wait and see. Thanks again.

You can determine the print side by wetting a finger tip and touching a corner of the paper - the print side will feel tacky to the touch. It can be very hard with some papers to see a visual difference between the two sides.

Don't feel too bad... I *know* to make sure I put the paper in with the correct side up... and just occasionally I still get it wrong.

 

But I've learned that the moment I see that "look" on the printed page as it exits the printer... that I blew it.
