Horzontal white lines cut through print and picture copies. When doing head allignment the horozontal bars all have a white gap, 1 through 7. Epson Stylus CX5400


You don't need to do head alignment, because it is for vertical banding in printout. Vertical banding can be minimized by disabling high speed option without doing head alignment. If your printout have horizontal white lines, do check nozzle and head cleaning, or you can minimize white lines by printing in best quality (photo).

Will not print 6BK


Please see the Canon link below, and as Canon links return generic pages, type in "missing black print" (without quotes) or something of that nature. The results will include Reseat/remove printhead, among others. I have reproduced that content for you below, but I would also add that a number of folks have issues with black print cartridges, and it seems this is an issue that is fairly widespread, as one of the results is that your printer may need repair. If you have tried more than one cartridge with the same result, suggest consulting support if you don't think your usage justifies a new print head - especially if you are still under warranty.

Colour printing


If the test patterns are not matching what your printer tells you is normal and your photos are banded horizontally, you may have clogged nozzles and printhead. Do a maintenace clean under your printers direction, and see if it now prints ok. Also, you may be low or out of one particular colour, but still have enough of the others and the printer will try to compensate by using available colours, hence colour banding and distortion. A manual clean with cotton buds and cleansing solution is recommended if the first clean does not help.
