Question about HP DesignJet Z2100 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

HP z2100 horizontal lines where the text or object are

When priting a picture, the priter works great. When for example adding text on that picture, the print is already not ok. What happens is, that at the end of the text (same size) I get darker tone (like shadow).

This goes all the way to the end of the print. These lines are also if I add some object in corel for example. But when printing picture without anything added to it, the printer works great.

Any idea?

Check for updated firmware and drivers. Also, if all your object and text or black try changing them to color and see if that helps, maybe there is something wrong with your black printhead, the black may not be used when printing photos, the printer may be using process black for photoes and real black for black text and objects.

Taking long timeto swith on the printer


try clearing all previous jobs from t he hard drive- it only does File System Check when a corrupt file has been identified on the hard drive and so it is re-writing all the information from the eerom back to the hard drive ( usually a sign of a failing hard drive) suggest you order one on-line ready for replacement. (you will need a HP Z2100 hard drive from HP a standard Hard drive will not work without some tricky copying/backup proceedures.

HP 5610 scanner won't save image


I just need to understand the exact issue. It sounds like you are able to successfully scan, see the preview of the scanned image, and you initially save it. Then, when you go to open the saved image, you don't see the image you scanned but rather a "line". You've saved the image in a number of different image formats, but there's no difference in the result. It saves the scanned image to the location you want to save it on your computer's hard drive (probably My Pictures if you're using a Windows operating system).

Not sure what you mean by a "line". Do you mean a vertical line, a horizontal line, a diagonal line or what? Also, is it just a solid black line on a white background? Is it the image you scanned compressed into a smaller vertical or horizontal space?

Have to tried scanning both text pages and graphic pages? There have been issues where a document with both text and pictures has been scanned but when the scanned image is viewed, only the text appears. The pictures don't make it. The description of this specific problem is at HP.com.

I take it you don't get any sort of error message associated with this problem. Unfortunately, I can't find your specific problem at HP.com beyond the link I posted in the above paragraph. If you can answer some of the questions I asked, it might help me provide a better solution.

Thanks.

Horizontal white lines through the text


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.

Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
