    This solution did not help because I left out a detail that I didn't know about at the time. The problem affects only composed documents but not printouts from web sites. Thank you.

The top half of letters on certain lines of print are offset by about half a letter space from the bottm half of the letters. Usually but not always the same lines. help please


This usually indicates a need for a new print cartridge or the printer head is dirty. You can run the automatic printer cleaning utilities. Note: do them several times.
Also, if you are a little handy, use Qtips and rubbing alcohol and clean the print head.

On some lines the letters are cut in half and not lined up


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

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
