Print is not clear and hard to read, smudged or smeared.
A printing issue has occurred e.g. Only partial print of the frank.
The franking machine is not printing at all.
Several factors can contribute to deterioration in print quality:
Lack of use: When the franking machine is idle for a long time, dried ink from previous printings can clog the nozzles in the print head.
Overuse: Overuse increases wear and tear on the print head and can lead to issues.
Ink issues: Low ink or no ink in the print cartridge can impair print quality and cause other problems with the franking machine.

If the franking machine displays the warning Ink Out, the ink supply is completely gone and the franking machine won't print until the cartridge is replaced. Install a new genuine Pitney Bowes ink cartridge immediately.
