You might need to clean the heads.

To do that, (assuming you are using Windows)

load a sheet of A4 paper, open the Printer properties dialog box, click on the Maintenance tab and then click on the cleaning icon.

After that you shoul select the nozzle check. and see if the lines come all right.


Good luck.

Sounds to me like a bad USB cable,
Also when you're re-installing the printer are you using new/different drivers?

I would try a new cable and the latest drivers direct from Lexmark.com

Printer prints lined marks across pictures/documents


Try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to www.lexmarklabs.com/firmware and choose the model number of your printer.

After applying the firmware update, try to do a "Deep Clean Printhead". To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup (Wrench button) > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If the problem persist, please go to this link for more info: http://bit.ly/mDKqh7

My printer prints blurrey out of focus pictures. I download from my camera and print a few on photogaph paper. This happened once before and for reasons that evade me it cleared up and printed fine. ...


Before replacing this awesome printer try this steps first.

First check the paper you're using, load the paper with the printing side down.

In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print .

Make sure the appropriate printer is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties.

Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.

Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.

Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .

Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.

Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry.

Color of pictures


image quality occuring after long period of inactivity of the printer oftenis caused by inks drying up or clogging either the nozzle or the channels of your printhead. to prevent this from happeniong, i suggest you do the maintenance first: deep clean and calibrate the printhead before you start using it if you havent used it for quite a while. you might be experiencing a printhead problem if the printer is printing predominantly in one color. you should try to visit thsi helpful website. the link ive provided below:

Have you tried re-installing the printer on your PC? Other than that, I'm not sure what else to try. I have been using three pf2s over the last year and don't recall experiencing a problem like that.
