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

Kodak hero 7.1 will not print any black text in a document


the kodak system uses a countdown system that assumes you use a certain amount of ink re sheet regegardless of how much ink you accutualy use, the counter system starts everyt ime you turn the printer on, so the only way to extend the life of the ink is not to turn the printer off netween use, which the domestic useres do not of course do what i did throw the printer away and get a new one not Kodak sh*t

When printing, the top half of page prints normal... bottom half of page very faint...


Your ink cartridge has about 9 very small nozzles that spray ink to complete a letter the upper nozzles complete the upper half and the lower half is done by the lower nozzles. The lower nozzles are stopped or clogged up by dried up ink or the control resisters in the firing circuit are burned out. some times you can unclog the nozzles by soaking the lower part of the cartridge in hot water for a half hour and drying it well ,replace it in the carrier and try it again. However you will lose a lot of ink and it may be more prudent to replace the cartridge.

My printer only prints the top half of a page clearly. The bottom half is feint and blurry or missing altogether.


Your inks are gradually drying out. You should have them refilled or replaced. When inks begin to finish up in the cartridge, each time you print, part of ink that has settled at the bottom prints, and if the the material you are printing is sizable the bottom part will come out faint or faded out.

Good luck & God bless!
