Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Horizontal white lines through the text

When I print a document, some of it comes out too light and with horizontal white lines through the text.  I've cleaned the cartridges several times and when I print out a test page, it comes out great, but when I print a document it's barely legible.
Thanks for your help.

Your ink cartridge (s) is dried up, even some new ones are dried up, even tho' they're sealed.

Some self-tests don't use black.

Two faint white horizontal lines


the white ghost lines are down to the charge wire within the toner cartridge being dirty, the only real way forward is to replace the toner cartridge as access to the charge chorona wire is not possible without ruining the cartridge itself

My prints come out with white (no ink) horizontal lines 1/16" apart from top to bottom


A firmware update for your model addresses print quality issues. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro900 Series Firmware Update.
After successfully updating your printer, do a deep clean function. From the printer touchscreen panel, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. This will help clean the nozzles from possible clogs and dirt.
Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.


Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

Printing black horizontal lines below text/on top of pictures


Check the waste recepticle under where the ink cartridges rest in the home position. Over time, ink sprayed into this cup during cleaning cycles builds up to form a small mountain of congealed ink. If this gets too high, it makes contact with the printhead and drags ink across all your prints. If there is a ***** of ink present, scoop it out with a spoon or a popsicle stick.

Dont get it on you, its messy...

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.


Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.

HP 7110 still won't print in color


Your post "...it prints very faint horizontal lines in color..." is indicative that indeed your color printheads are clogged and would need repetitive deep head cleaning. This is of course would require that you keep on cleaning until such time as the faint color lines have turned to legible print.
