Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Stripey printing All my cartridges are brand-new but when printing anything it seems to print stripes, some faded or unprinted lines followed by reasonably dark lines. Fine print seems to print OK but anything with graphics, large print, or bold ends up with this striped effect. Is there something inside that needs replaced or cleaned?

    I no longer have the installing disc. So, I have simply deleted the link of the printer, turned the printer off, disconnected it, and restarted the computer. When the computer was back on the printer reconnected and turned on, I tried a test page. It worked. However, when I tried to print, it was not even printing the stripes anymore, the sheet was going through, but no marks on it. HELP!

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have a Xerox Phaser 8400 with image problems. After power up it prints a Startup Page - That page is black text which faded and slightly distorted in some areas and in areas that are in Color only...

What you are describing is a bad print head. You can try running the eliminate light stripes several times, and jet substitution, but most likely the print head will have to be replaced to remedy your problem.
You can try googling. Phaser printer print heads or phaser printheads.
There seems to be a secondary market appearing for those print heads. I can tell you from Xerox, if you have no maintenance agreement, they cost $750 per print head.
Honestly, having worked on about every type of color printer known to man, the new solid ink phaser printers, produce a dry ink image of 2400 x 2400 dpi with ink particles that align end to end. The resolution of those printers are remarkable and can be purchased for less than the price of one of those new print heads.
Now for reliable, albeit somewhat not as sharp a color image, but still exceptional, you really can not beat an HP.
The ink stick technology really no longer has the color vividness advantage it initially had. The inks that align end to end, have ended that advantage and are sure a lot cheaper to operate per page.

Repeating wide smudgy horizintal line across my printed pages

I had the same problem, replaced the PCR in the cartridge, the small black drum that pre charges the drum and erase the old image.
After that print was all back ok.

HP 5610 - printing fades down the page

the printer carriage might be wearing out, it happens on the 5610's, may be time for a new printer. The fading issue sounds like a cartridge issue. Try a oem?
