Re: horizontal line on prints

Put plain paper in the printer and try to clean the nozzles.

-Start->All Programs->Lexmark 5400 Series->Lexmark Solution Center->Maintenance->Clean to fix horizontal streaks.

Good luck!

Two faint white horizontal lines

the white ghost lines are down to the charge wire within the toner cartridge being dirty, the only real way forward is to replace the toner cartridge as access to the charge chorona wire is not possible without ruining the cartridge itself

Printing with a HP5500dtn and I'm getting a white horizontal line towards the top of my paper when printing.

Check the ETB belt for a horizontal scar.
Next check your toner cartridges. One of the drums may have a scar.
Under DIAGNOSTICS Menu, run PQ Troubleshooting.
See if any of the colors give you the white line.

Because you said that only one line occurs, I'm inclined to go with the ETB belt.
Check it good for the horizontal line.

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......

Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

Printer prints white thick blank lines

1- black lines are from the drum: it has burnt out on that particular spot and rotates

2- the white horizontal gap space if it is not you skipping space is also from the drum

3-the white Vertical is most likely from the developper (unit that has the toner and is against the drum, look at the roller it should be solid black, maybe there is something on it : hair paper etc....

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.

Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.
