Question about HP LaserJet 6L Printer

1 Answer

Fine black streaky lines on every page

Every time we print we get fine black streaky lines and a general black fine 'cloud' on the paper.
We replaced the cartridge and it seemed to work initially but then re-appeared.
We wiped the rail where the paper first appears before passing through/under the cartride but this seems to be ineffective.

Your help would be much appreciated.

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Poor print quality- streaky lines across the page


The problem might be with the type of paper you are using. Some printers require different paper types. Check the manufacturers website to see what kind of paper you need.

Streaky print out from canon Pixma mp830 all in one


I just bought a PIXMA iP3500. The 1st 2 photos I printed had veritcal White lines. I did a Nozzle Check and Alligned the Print head after the 1st photo printed. The 2nd still had the lines. Then I changed brands of Glossy Photo Paper and tried a 3rd time. This time I noticed that it printed much slower and it turned out just fine. Information says that you should have the settings at "high" not "standard". Double check that this hasn't inadvertently changed back to Standard. Gator
