How can I get rid of lines on photos


Sir/Madam

Step one: Retry the print

If printing on glossy paper was paused or interrupted in the middle of the print job (for instance, if a cartridge was replaced), the resulting print may show a grainy band. In this case, retry the print and avoid interrupting the job.

Step two: Free up system resources and ensure direct communication

The PC can cause the printer to pause if it is not fast enough to keep the printer fed with data. The following steps can help alleviate this problem.
  1. Make sure that the PC meets the minimum system requirements for this printer.
  2. Restart the PC.
  3. Close out of all programs except for the program the print out will originate from.
  4. Shut down programs running in the Task Bar by right clicking on them and choosing exit. These programs will restart the next time the PC is rebooted.
  5. Ensure that the USB cable is 10 feet in length or less. Make sure the USB cable goes directly from the printer to the PC with no intervening devices in between such as a USB hub.

Step three: Check the paper or specialty printing material


  • Make sure the media is not damaged, scratched, or curled. Always store printing materials in a sealed plastic bag, especially in a humid environment, to help protect the material from damage or curl.
  • HP inks and media are designed to deliver optimum results. Other media may not perform as well.

Step four: Increase the print quality mode

If reprinting did not help and the paper or specialty printing material is not damaged, check the print quality mode:
  1. Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
  2. On the File menu in your software program, click Print .
  3. Make sure your printer is selected.
  4. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on your software program, this button might be called Properties , Options , Printer Setup , or Printer .
  5. Click the Features tab.
  6. In the Print Quality drop down list, choose a higher print quality (for instance, if the print quality is Fast Draft or Normal , switch to Best or Maximum DPI ).

Step five: Clean the printheads using the printer control panel

If you still see streaks or lines in your printouts, clean the printheads using the printer control panel.


NOTE:Always allow the printhead cleaning routine to complete. If the printer loses power in the middle of a cleaning, make sure to repeat the cleaning and allow the printer to complete it.
  1. Press Menu on the printer control panel. Figure 3: Menu button on the printer control panel

75b681b9-ee6e-426d-8740-fa0d2e25518c.gif

  1. Using the arrow keys to move through the menu options, find and select Clean printheads , and then press OK .
  2. Following the directions on the printer screen, load paper so the printer can print a test page after cleaning the printheads. Use plain paper to conserve photo paper.
  3. Press OK to begin cleaning the printheads. A Print Quality Diagnostic page prints at the end of the cleaning. Figure 4: Print Quality Diagnostic page

4e6ad9ee-965d-4875-a411-60df245be32f.gif

  1. If there are white lines across any of the color blocks on the Print Quality Diagnostic page, press Cancel to repeat the cleaning.
  2. Cleaning may be repeated a number of times. The number of cleanings (and therefore the length of the procedure and the amount of ink and paper used) will vary depending on the severity of the problem. A Print Quality Diagnostic page is printed after each cleaning. Look for white lines through the blocks after each cleaning, and if the print quality seems to be getting better (fewer white lines), continue to repeat the cleaning. Eventually, a Recommend Six-Minute Cleaningmessage will appear on the printer display. If the print quality has been improving, press OK to perform six-minute cleaning.
    • As soon as the white lines no longer appear in the color blocks, the problem should be solved. Print a normal print job to confirm that the print quality is acceptable.
    • If the print quality is still bad after the six-minute cleaning, or does not improve with repeated cleaning, or is not acceptable even though there are no white lines through the color blocks, go on to the next step.

      Step six: Align and calibrate the printheads

      If you still see streaks or lines in your printouts, align and calibrate the printheads.
      1. Align the printheads:
        1. Load plain, white, unused paper in the main tray.
        2. Press Menu on the printer control panel. Figure 5: Menu button on the printer control panel

675f657f-f99c-4893-b194-f33663f3ec77.gif

    1. Select Calibrate Printer , and then press OK .
    2. Select Align Printheads , and then press OK .
  1. Reset the closed loop calibration:
    1. Press Menu on the printer control panel.
    2. Select Calibrate printer , and then press OK .
    3. Select Reset closed loop calibration , and then press OK .
    4. The printer LCD will display Ready .
  2. Color calibrate the printer using closed loop calibration.
    1. Load HP Advanced Glossy Photo Paper in the main tray.
NOTE:Only HP Advanced Glossy Photo Paper should be used for this process. If plain paper is detected by the printer, the calibration procedure may fail or print quality may be affected.

    1. Press Menu on the printer control panel.
    2. Select Calibrate Printer, and then press OK.
    3. Select Closed Loop Calibration, and then press OK.

Step seven: Clean the printheads manually

If you still see streaks or lines in your printouts, clean the printheads manually:
  1. Gather the following items to clean the nozzles on the printheads:
    • Distilled water (tap water might contain contaminants that could damage the printheads)
    • Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the printhead
    • Sheets of paper or paper towels to rest the printheads on
  2. Open the top door of the printer.
  3. Press and hold OK until the printhead assembly moves to the left side of the printer and stops.
  4. Raise the printhead assembly cover.
  5. Remove a printhead and place it on a piece of paper with the ink nozzle plate facing up.
    Figure 6: Removing a printhead


30d99a41-4c4a-4257-8d32-275b6505dcad.gif

NOTE:Do not touch the ink nozzle plate with your fingers. Touching the ink nozzle plate will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

NOTE:Do not leave the printhead outside the printer for more than 30 minutes. Ink nozzles exposed to the air longer than this might dry out and cause printing problems.

  1. Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water and squeeze any excess water from the swab by pressing it against a clean plastic or tile surface. Do not use your fingers to squeeze the excess water from the swab, because the oil from your fingers could contaminate the swab.
  2. Gently wipe the nozzles on the printhead with the cotton swab. Figure 7: Wiping the nozzles

6ad22fec-fdff-448d-8e80-3acdfb93d75c.gif

  1. Wipe until no ink residue or dust appears on a clean swab.
  2. Insert the printhead in the printer.
  3. Repeat the steps above for each printhead. When all the printheads have been cleaned and reinstalled, close the top door of the printer.

    NOTE:If a message appears on the printer screen directing you to replace a printhead, click the Contact HP link on this page to contact HP support.

Step eight: Replace the printhead

If you still see streaks or lines in your printouts after performing all the steps above, one or more printheads may need to be replaced. If your printheads are still under warranty, click Contact HPon this page to arrange to replace the printheads.

Refilled black ink cartrige and i can't get it to print at all. done more deep cleans than i want to remember, still will not print. done nozzle clean also. i have refilled this cartrige several times...


You may need a newer cartridge
See if the printhead has any abnomal markings.
You can compare it with the color printhead.
If the printhead is good, see if the ink is flowing through the printhead.
Fill the ink cartridge to maximum
Squeeze the sides of the ink cartridge, ink should flow out.
If ink is flowing out, remove any excessive ink with a paper towel.
Install ink cartridges, do NOT do any cleaning cycle.
Since your black cartridge is full, cleaning may cause it not to print.
Do some black copy operations.

Wont print


I had this problem recently with my IP90. Both the black and color heads were clogged. After running the "canned" routines several times to clean the heads and deep clean the heads...still didn't help...here's what I did:

1. open the top lid to have the cartridges that are inserted in the print head move to the middle of the printer.
2. remove both cartridges
3. What is left there is the print head holder. Slightly move it to the right and gently lift the print head lock.
4. Grasp the print head and lift it out of the tank.
5. Have several paper towels hand and know that you will have color and bw ink on your fingers
6. Put the print head on the paper towel
7. Pour rubbing alcohol on the blk and color heads and let them sit of about 10-15 minutes.
8. after that dry the heads and re-insert them in the printer
9. I put new cartridges in the printer and ran clean and deep clean a few times.
10. My color and black and white print came right back!

Hope this helps.

Kodak easy share 5300 -


The first thing you should try is running a printhead cleaning using the kodak software or from the local user interface on the printer. from the printer press the [menu] button. press the down arrow untill Clean Printhead is highlighted. press the [OK] button. Select "Deap Clean" and press [OK]. If this does not work you can mannually clean it. You can search online for how to clean inkjet printheads. I use distilled or de-ionized water and a LINT-FREE cloth. Dont use paper towls or anthing that could leave lint behind and clogg the nozzels. when you wipe the printhead make sure you only wipe in the direction of the nozzels, with the grain. Do not use a circular motion. You want to wipe from the front to the back or back to front of the printhead. Not left to right. I hear windex works as well but i have never tried it. Do some research online and use you best judgment. If none of this works you may have to contact kodak and see about getting a new printhead, they dont sell them sepeartly.

Good luck!

Not printing


Sounds like the print head is stuffed, unrcomical to repair. The print head in epsons is seperate from ink cartridges that you have changed. Printheads are often damaged by inferior inks traveling threw it,
