Lines From Printer

I don't know if you can see it but I get these lines about every inch when I print , does anyone know why? It a nice printer , HP Office jet Pro 8600 and I use HP premium papers. Any thoughts ?

That has been my experience, too...clean those print heads. And I also find that this sort of thing happens when you are right in the middle of a big project and right on deadline.

Sadly that did not help. What printer do you use?

 

I don't use the same brand of printer, but lines like that are almost always the heads. The last time I had problems with it on my printer (a few years ago) I just kept running the clean cycle on the heads until I got a clear print. It did use up a chunk of ink, but my prints have been perfect since.

 

My print drivers have trouble shooting tips.

There are several things to try:

- run the 'clean print head' setting - you may have to do this multiple times

- if that doesnt work, some printers have a deep clean setting, run this several times

- try putting in new ink cartridges

- if all else fails, you might need to buy a new printhead - its not cheap but will solve the problem!

 

Hope you get it fixed.
