Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines

Color printing produces perfectly spaced pink horizontal lines on a (color) print-out with otherwise what appears to be reasonable color reproduction. Note: Black and White text prints are perfect.

Re: Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines

Thanks, of course, an elemental solution to any printer problem is to replace the cartridge which was tried in this case! But unfortunately the problem must be in the firmware or damaged hardware of the computer! SELFHELP

Re: Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines

Hello we have had customers with this problem and this model printer We came upon this type of problem also exhibited the same lining when you did a nozzle check independant of the computer (not attached to computer and just using the internal head check print) This was a cartridge problem and after replacing the cartridge the problem stopped.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across

try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Horizontal pink & blue lines across color pictures that I print.

In the past when I have seen this on my old printers, it is the color cartridge. Eithe the haed is cloged or it needs to be replaced. You could try to take the color cartridge and set the print head(copper colored end) on a damp towel for a little while and see if it will release the clog. (HP uses mostly water base inks and they dry out sometimes) Then wipe the head on a dry cloth. Reinstall and try again. You should also have software for HP to prime the head and clean it. Try that and if you still have problem, replace color cartridge.

Horizontal lines in pictures

If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.

HP 7110 still won't print in color

Your post " prints very faint horizontal lines in color..." is indicative that indeed your color printheads are clogged and would need repetitive deep head cleaning. This is of course would require that you keep on cleaning until such time as the faint color lines have turned to legible print.
