Are you sure your ink is not on the verge of finishing? Try changing the colour ink and print again. Sometimes I take the cartridge out, shake the ink down just in the same flashing motion as I do my pen, then replace it. You may try that.

Printer is printing photos with visible horizontal lines


If the inks in those cartridge are still enough for print, you need to clean the head. For this follow me :
1. From the Printing Preference window (the window where you used to set paper type, paper size .....) choose the Maintenance tab.
2. On that Tab, you will see some tools, click on the CLEANING button, load a paper in the printer, after cleaning the printer will print some patterns, repeat till you satisfied with.
3. If the problem persist, try DEEP CLEANING.
4. Also perform a PRINT HEAD ALIGNMENT by following the onscreen instructions.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.
