I also have an HP 895. It's a real work horse.

About the only thing that comes to mind is to take out both ink cartridges, reinstall and do a "print head alignment". If this doesn't work, consider replacing both ink cartridges (or even replacing the printer!?!)

That is a bit odd...

I'm using Windows XP Pro so the following may be a tad different depending on the OS you're using (but the thought process is the same!?!)

Go to:
- Control Panel, then
- Printers and Faxes
- Right click on your "default" printer
- In the listing, click on "Properties" (probably at the bottom of the list);
- A new box will pop up and you should see an "index" tab for "Services"; click on this ("Services")
- You should see a dialog box titled "Maintain my printer" and in here is "align the print cartridges."

If you still can't find the alignment function, check for new print drivers or delete the currentprinter and reinstall ("Add new printer").

Good luck!
