Try to clean the print heads of the ink cartridges. you can do it in the HP solution center. you can run it through all 3 tests so you make sure its clean. if it doesnt work after that, your ink cartidge level might be off, because i hear they never work half the time anyways. i would buy new ink if the cleaning the heads does not work. good luck!

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

Printer prints every second line or prints 4 lines then skips a line or only prints half a line.....the top part of the line is missing.


Hello sir; I believe it's time to clean print head and ink cell, power on the machine open the cover ( as you replace cartridge) , when carriage move to the center , then UNPLUG the power cord. then you may move carriage freely by hand all the way to left, noe you can clean up ink cell easily.

Prints half the line


It sounds like your print head is dirty. Try cleaning the printhead in using the printers options, If that does not work replace the black printhead.

Canon i-550 printing in black--the lines are only printing half of the line. In other words, cutting the words in half horozontally


Try cleaning the cartridge by taking a damp paper towel and wiping the ink jets. If you still get the problem, try running the cleaning cycle. If nothing works, then try a new cartridge.

Printer cuts off lines


I had this exact same problem - probably about a week after I put in NEW cartridges. I took them out, wiped the bottom off with a tissue (black and color) and put them back in. Did a test print and everything looks fine now.

Ink problem


I had the same problem. This is what The Geek Squad recommended:
1) Make sure your ink cartridge isn't low.
2) Go to Setup on the printer, choose Tools, then choose Clean Print Cartridges
3) Then, go back to Tools and choose Align Print Cartridges

This worked for me -- good luck

Prints only the top half of some lines.


Take the offending cartridge out and get a piece of tissue paper on your finger. Gently run the print head of the cartridge over the tissue paper. You shold see full lines of ink coming out. If not, the cartridge is out. If you see a full line of ink, reinsert the cartridge and do a clean cartridge from the tools menu
This should work
