Why am I getting double or treble spacing on the printed lines

It could be that the disk located to the left side of the paper feed (when looking inside from front) is soiled with ink.

The disk has tiny lines on it that are read by a sensor like steps so the printer counts the "steps" to work out how far the paper has progressed through the feed. If this is dirty with ink, grease or similar, it will not be read properly and result in the paper feeding further than it should.

This assumes that the issue is printer related however. It could be that your source document/editor is causing the problem by not displaying what you want to print. You can identify if this is the case by printing from some other application like a web browser or similar to see if the spacing still takes place. If it does the printer is the fault... if it doesn't it's your software.

Hope that helps.

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a

If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

When printing a document on printer it prints a line and then a solid black line beneath that.

Sounds like a bad ink cartridge. The ink is probably clogged up in the print head where the ink comes out of the cartridge. You should either bring it back to where you purchased it for a replacement, or you can try priming the ink.

To prime the ink:
1. Get a wet paper towel
2. Get a dry paper towel
3. Take the bad ink out of your printer
4. Move the ink back and forth from the wet towel to the dry towel touching the print head (part on cartridge where the ink comes out) to the towel.
5. You should begin to see the ink come out in a higher consistency

This will help unclog any ink stuck in the pores of the print head. If that doesn't work, you may need to get a replacement from where you purchased it.

Hope this helps :)

This problem suddenly happened to me. After some researching it said I should replace the printhead. I pulled the printhead and it looked dirty with perhaps some dried ink on it. On the bottom part (not where the circuitry is) is where the ink comes out. Take paper towel and fold it up and put hot water on it and then squeeze out most of the water. Place the printhead part where the ink comes out on the paper towel and the water will start wicking out the ink. Move it over and do it again. Gently clean the part with the wet towel, dry it thoroughly and reinstall in printer. It worked fine for my printer and it is printing perfectly again without purchasing a new printhead for $70. One of these days I may have to, but not now. Good luck.

Printing won't work.

Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos

Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.
