Lines across the page from side to side about 2 inches apart as the paper comes out of the printer. Charge wire problem? If so where would I find it to clean it? A new cartridge only made the problem...

could be a fuser problem. interrupt a print and look if the lines are on the page before it enters the fuser (when you still can wipe the toner off the paper).

Black horizontal lines across pages

If they are the same distance apart every time then suspect the problem to be caused by the components in this order First the drum that is in the print or xerographic module, the charge and cleaning roller are located in that module also. So I suspect that first.its .Located above and to the right of the toner cartridge. Secondly it could be the roller on the toner cartridge, that would occur probably every 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart, the drum would cause the defect about every 3 inches. It less likely could be coming from the fuser, and if the fuser was causing that you should also have a lot of jams. There is also a transfer roller on the right hand door that could be causing it, but that would be exceptionally rare.
If the lines are random and have no consistant spacing, I would suspect the power supply then the laser.

Lines across page

My metric to standard conversions skills are poor. But if 10 cm is equivalent to about 2 inches it sounds like the drum on the cartridge has gone bad from inactivity. Change the cartridge.
