YOU NEED TO CLEAN IT. YOU CAN USE Q-TIPS AND RUBBING ALCOHOL TO CLEAN THE INSIDE. REMOVE CARTRAGES WHEN YOU CLEAN IT AND CLEAN THROUGHLY. THIS SHOULD DO THE TRICK.

Why is there a black line on all documents that i print?


The 2 most common causes for lines on this machine areA) Dirty **** Glass ( This would only affect copies not internal or computer printed jobs)B) Worn Drum Unit
First make a copy off the large glass and see if you get a line still, if not try running it through the document feeder. If the line is present through the feeder but not off the large glass. Clean the small strip of glass to the left of the large copy glass and this should resolve the line.
If lines show up regardless of how or what you print/copy open the left door of the machine and you should see in the lower area a handle with a blue sticker on it. By grabbing both the front and rear handle of the unit remove it by pulling straight out and lifting slightly. If this blue/green cylinder has any tan colored lines or marks on it then the drum is worn and needs replaced.

Epson Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

Hi ,My Hp5000 printer started out of the blue printing continuous lines down the left margin .Sometimes its seven lines & now 2 to 3 lines.How can I stop this & what caused it ? I'm needing to...


Hi Barry,

Thanks for the posting in FixYa.

If only the blue color is not shown after printing may be the Color Catridge having problem or may be getting empty.

Try after inserting a new Catridge. Otherwise clean the roller of the printer may be they get struck with the ink.
