I am trying to print photos on my HP Officejet L7580 printer. Each time I get dark lines that cut across the page at about every 7/8 inch. I have cleaned the rollers, replaced and aligned the cartridges and nothing has helped yet.

The black print head has a few blocked nozzles. Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
First try to copy and if copy works fine, means the hardware is fine and issue with the driver.
Do right-click on printer icon and select delete.
Once deleted, run the installation disc and click on add a device, follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Open printers and faxes window and then do right click on printer icon and select properties, click on print test page.
Check if it prints fine, if yes try to print from other application. I hope it will work.
Check that you haven't increased the printing resolution beyond what is sufficient to print your document.
High resolution vs. draft output will cause you to use a lot more ink and will take at least twice as long to print a page because it is likely printing each line at least twice. This is how full color (photo quality) images are printed. If you don't need a photo to be dark, then set your printer to "Standard" or "Draft" settings.
