Clean the large silver rod that runs through the carriage. It is dirty and not allowing the carriage to move as freely as it should. Ideally it should be left dry. Also change the ribbon. The same motor drives the carriage and the ribbon. If it has a bind, the same thing can happen. Hope it helps Ed

Below the head is a black serrated rack called the space rack. Replace that item and it will sort out the moving of margins Michael

Why would my printer be printing very fuzzy print with lines through it.


Blocked Printheads and/or Alignment issues.
Try cleaning the printheads and see if there are any increases in quality. Then start down the alignment road. Be very careful when tinkering with alignment. If you mess it up it may require a technician to realign it properly.

Does not print evenly. Some lines are very faint. Have done calibration and cleaned print head several times. Prints from internet and e-mails okay. But does print from Simply Accounting, tax software...


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Since you have already performed calibration and cleaned the printhead, kindly verify that the ink cartridges are not damaged and are completely seated in the printhead:

1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.

2. Verify that the labels on the ink cartridges are intact, and that the cartridges are not damaged.

3. Verify that the KODAK Ink Cartridges have not been refilled.

4. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.

5. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.

6. Close the printer access door.

7. Check the printer status monitor on your computer (or the LCD screen on the printer) to determine if there is sufficient ink available for your print job.

NOTE: When the "Black ink cartridge is low" or "Color ink cartridge is low" message is displayed, print quality can be affected.

8.Reprint the original picture or document that had the quality problem.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an hp officejet d135. It has knew ink jets and is hooked up. When I try to print the ink won't come out and the window says it's empty. Do I have a toner and if so where is it?


Your printer has a print head under the ink cartridges. You can try a cleaning, and if this does not fix the issue, you may need to replace the print head .



Clean Printheads function
To activate the Clean Printheads function from the front panel:

  1. From the front panel, press MENU.
  2. Press the RIGHT or LEFT ARROW until Status and Maintenance displays.
  3. Press ENTER
  4. Press the RIGHT or LEFT ARROW until Clean Printheads displays.
  5. Press ENTER
After a few minutes the HP Officejet D series will automatically complete the printhead cleaning operation.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

My TI 810 printer has begun to error out. It prints a few lines, and the lines appear to "slide" to the left, until it is printing off the left edge of the paper, and then it stops printing, and the error...


Hello.
This is a ribbon problem, it needs to be changed. The fact that the lines "slide" to the left prove that the carrier is not going back to its original position every time.
So, the solution is to change the ribbon.
