Horizontal lines appear in printout

I've had my Cacon i1600 for a while but it has been working beautifully. Suddenly there are horizontal lines through the printout when the ink is pale (when printing just black). This has happened from a word document and an Autocad drawing file. I have replaced the cartridge, cleaned the heads etc etc. reinstalled the driver. If I include a solid black box object in the word document the text in line with the box prints fine but the other text on the page comes out with horizontal stripes.

Run the cleaning cycle. If that doesn't work, try to use an alcohol soaked swab on the print head. Some of the jets are clogged.

Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

It sounds like the black drum unit needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: black ink problem with printout on hp7780

Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

SOURCE: BROTHER MFC-210 PRINTING IN BLACK INK POOR QUALITY

Try cleaning the black printer heads several times in a row, at least 5 times then print a black document with best quality setting.
Press the ink button, then down to select select cleaning and then press menu/set and menu/set again to select black.

I have Toshiba SATELLITE P105-S6197 Laptop and suddenly a horizontal while/grey lines appeared as a strip and after windows login it appears as a black strip at right side


Sounds like a bad screen. The easiest way to verify that would be to attach this to an external monitor (at work, a friend's ... if you ain't got one) - if the external monitor apprears good then you've pretty much iso'd the problem to your laptop's screen. This model uses a 17" widescreen. Best place to buy 'em would be on eBay, and they'll usually run around $90 to $100 if you need one right away - half that amount if you've got time and patience :-)

Hi, I purchased the same model in November 2009. About 2 weeks ago a single horizontal line appeared. Each day another appeared until today when the video went out. Now it displays bands of vertical colored lines like a pastel colored rainbow. Did you find a solution to the problem?

Photos come with horizontal stripes and too bright


Hello naushed,

I had the same issue with the white horizontal lines with myCanon Powershot series camera too. When taking pictures, I get the horizontal lines. In daylight, I almost cannot see the pictures because it gives me very bright output. In darker areas, the picture can still be toleratedbut white lines are still there. Although when I am taking a video,the quality is good.

I was able to read that there is one part insidethe camera's mechanism that is faulty. Its a CCD problem. You should bring this to a CanonAuthorized service center and they should replace and fix the faultypart, free of charge. I got my Camera fixed for FREE! I was able to do macro shots again.Trust me and go to canon. What I did is to print this advisory fromcanon itself. And show it to them.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8288&keycode=2112&id=29819

As part of their advisory:

"Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon willrepair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting theabove-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction iscaused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost ofshipping and handling in connection with this repair.
"

Hope this helps.

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

The image disappears on my tv screen. A horizontal line appears.


You need to check the horizontal IC for deffects, possibly and most likely there are dry joints on the legs of the Horizontal IC. Have all the legs on the IC soldered nicely, this shud sort out your problems as you say you hit the TV then works. Try this before replacing the IC
