Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Are the lines across the page, in the direction of text, or from top to bottom. If from top to bottom, watch the scanner bar with the cover up, see if anything looks odd. If the paper moves in this machine, like from an auto feeder, it could pick up a streak from something in the path.
Checking, this unit is a laser printer. When replacing toner, there usually is a little tab thingy that is supposed to be moved back and forth over a little wire. The wire must be kept clean, too. Also, there may be a white bar with a glass cover that is to be cleaned very carefully every time toner is changed. Find this piece of glass, a speck of dust is probably your culprit.

The small glass surface at the top of the scanner bed had some gunk on it. I scrapped it off and the line went away! Yay!

Hi There You can try/
Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead
1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning
And if that not work
Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.
Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
