Question about Compaq A3000 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I got this machine about 5-6 years and just recently began having this problem. I believe it may just need to be taken apart and cleaned as my hubby and I both smoke but am unsure how to do this. I have of course cleaned all the reachable parts.
The streaks are probably caused by the yellow print head. This should be cured by doing a print head cleaning cycle in your machine menu or computer driver. If that doesn't fix it try cleaning the print head or replaceing the cartridge. The print head is located on the bottom of the cartridge. Use water and a cotton towel and gently clean the build up of ink. Just remember you may have to change the cartridge if this doesn't fix the problem. One more thing. There could be ink built up in another area causeing this also. This would require a technician. Thank you for your question, Bill
