How do I fix HP LaserJet P1606dn printing issue? it continues to print vertical line/ smudge on the far left of the printed document. Does anyone have any suggestion regarding this issue?


The smudges on the side of the paper is most likely a piece of something rubbing against the paper just after the printer puts the ink on the paper. Inspect as much as possible the path that paper takes. Look at rollers. Anything that grab the paper. Look for ink and dust build up. As for the vertical lines. Could be several things. I you haven't used you printer for awhile the ink in the nozzle could of dried up. Most new printers have a nozzle cleaning function. Try that it a couple of times. See if that helps. If it shows any sign of change after that, it dried up ink. It's a hassle to try to get the ink flowing again. I normally just to replace the cartridges. Let me know if this helps or not.

The black cartridge leaves blank lines while printing


This usually really means that you have clogged ink inside the delivery tube for the black ink flow to the inkjets. VERY Hard to repair, but since you still have ink flowing, switch to blk ink printing such as lots of text, and keep printing it out to see if it will clear out the dried ink in the micro tips. You can't change out the printer roller in this unit. I know, that frustrates me too! This may take a bit of time to do!! Also make sure your printer blk is up to date with new computer 'read' tabs, if not it can create read problems in the system. If you refill inks at a store, which of course is cheaper, make sure they also install the reader tab on the ink block.
Hope this helps!

Ink streaks


Ink streaks are usually caused by a buildup of died in on the print heads. There are two print heads in that unit. Remove one at a time and look for build up - clean it if you find any. Once you finish cleaning both print heads you will need to do a print head cleaning routine in the HP software to clear out any in clogging the print nozzles.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R260 inkjet Printer that is printing fine except the black ink is leaking all over the page or CD/DVD that I print. I have done numorous head cleanings, and it still is all...


I found this on fixya per dgsturt

It looks like you've managed to get ink all over the shop by using the self clean option. That't mainly to clear bocked print heads and tends to squirt a load of ink through.

That ink has to go somewhere, it looks like you may have some on your rollers.

First, I'd have a look through the printer menu see if there's a roller cleaning option, give that a go.

Second, I'm not sure but worth a try, try printing a document that has wording all down the page but use an empty cartridge. If your printer will do this you’re effectively using a sheet of paper as a mop to clean the rollers.

Third, probably the most difficult, get some Isoproprial Alcohol from the chemist and try and clean the rollers and print bed yourself with a lint free cloth and cotton buds, what ever works.

If you don't like the idea of Isoproprial Alcohol, it is highly infamable, try with a damp cloth first, but it will take longer to dry off.


If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks.....

Ink comes out heavy in spots on print outs as if you had a jam and then the ink smudges - ink does not smudge just heavy on certain spots


Sounds like you need to replace either the fuser or the rollers the rollers could have ink build on them and it would smudge the ink.

Splotching and spotting ink


The roller cleaning will require you to remove cover to clean the full roller with alcohol to remove ink build up. Have you tried to just run/feed a blank piece of paper through to see if you have roller ink roll off?

This also sounds like a bad cartridge with clogged jets...

Washed out prints


Have you tried taking the print head out and cleaning all of the gummed up ink out of it. We had our black just quit on us and were just printing pale copy. There was an unbelievable build up on the print head. Another thread about the black not printing any more has a lot of stuff on this.
