Question about Epson Stylus C84 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

White lines appear in printing

Every 6 to 8 lines a white or blank line appears through the font. I have printed the same letter 6 times (after doing all the cleaning and aligning shown, wiping rollers with clean soft brush, and restarting laptop and printer) and the lines always appear at the exact same place no matter what I do.

Re: white lines appear in printing

Try changing the driver settings to a higher or lower quality output. If the problem changes it would suggest that the alignment is till not quite right. This sounds like a BiDirectional mis-alignment issue. You could also try my under head cleaning routine, which is cheap and easy and solves many problems.

My Dell 1720dn mono laser printer has not printed properly for some time - in fact it's dreadful! The letters and dark images have white vertical lines going through them, and some of the printing do

Change your toner cartridge. A properly working toner cartridge will never leave that much toner lying around. The white lines are an indication that either the toner is low, or the mag roller is defective.

I have a Epson stylus the print has white lines on the letters as well as the photos. i have cleaned done head cleaning several times alignment no use it still prints the same

It seems that the print head is clogged.
You can choose to live with it by print at slowest speed (best photo or things like that) Or you may try to fix, however, it requires some skills.

1. Check if what print head was clogged: Print a test page. 2. Look at the test page, identify incomplete lines. what are there colors? For instant, blue line: clogged on blue head 3. Remove the ink tanks, and pump alcohol through the clogged print head 4. Do head cleaning to see if it works
If it does not work, try B method. Please only do this if you have experience on disassemble a printer, or you have nothing to lose, because incorrect handling parts from printers will kill it forever.
1. Remove the ink tanks,. 2. Remove all the cables connect to cartridge 3. Remove the cartridge 4. Boil some pure water ( Aquafina of Pepsi is the best) until small bubbles appear 5. Dip the head of cartridge ONLY in boiling water for 2 minutes. 6. Put all things together.

Problem Printing word documents

yes..I agree...that line through the letters sounds like something from the font settings in you have True type fonts selected? The landscape issues sound odd too, but I'm sure it's on the word settings side, not the printer.

White lines appearing on print

White Lines on the Printed Page ID:193 null.gif null.gif null.gif
Clean the print nozzles as follows:
  1. Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
  2. Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).
  3. Check the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. The diagonal lines should be continuously solid from left to right, with no gaps.
  4. If there are gaps at the top that diminish at the bottom, run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times. If the gaps are gone, the Clean Print Nozzle page has probably resolved the problem.
  5. If the gaps still exist, you should unblock ("wick") the cartridges. See How to Unblock/Wick the Cartridge Nozzles.
    For additional help, refer to the following article: How to Clean the Maintenance Station .
