Ricoh GX5050N banding

I have a Ricoh GX5050N. When using photo paper, it leaves white lines or bands across the page. It is not usually consistent. I am not sure if this is a printer or paper problem.

    Only on photo paper? are you using the bypass tray (you should be), and do you have the paper type set to an appropriate type? For example "Thick"?

It can be due to the fusing temperature not being right.try to change the paper type to a heavier paper type to increase the fusing temp.

Printer creates horizontal lines across paper that are either blank (no ink) or skipping/sliding looking blurring and distorting the text in that spot. This has been going on for a month. Changing...


The print-head is like a paint-brush -- brush sideways across a white-coloured wall, and you should get a wide "band" of paint. If only half of the paint-brush has paint on it, then only half of that "band" on the wall will get painted, leaving a horizontal strip of white showing through.

So, launch the Canon software that is installed on your computer, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog those ink-jets that are _NOT_ shooting the ink onto the paper.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

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.

Xerox XC1020 White Bands running across copied page 4" apart


The metering blades in those cartridges go bad and do not allow the ink to get to the page. Look at the front of the toner cartridge, is should be a solid consistent black all the way across, if its streaky, not consistent all the way across replace the toner.
The other problem could be a dirty laser. If replacing the toner doesnt work let me know, I will tell you how to remove and clean the laser.

White line across printed page


Hi Alms, Is there any chance you can post a scan of one of your faulty pages. This would help to assess the fault. If you print several pages, does the image move further and further down the page with each copy? Is the white band repeated down the page? If so measure the distance between each band - this will help identify the faulty component.

Horizontal White Banding


Most likely cause is that a roller has degraded during storeage. Measure the distance from the centre of the first band to the second and from the center of the second band to the third. If this dimesion is fairly constant you can work out exactly which roller is causing the problem. The most likely culprit will be the Photo Conductor Unit. This will give a large dimension - (approx the 29cm??) A service manual should give you the dimensions (circumferences) of the rollers within the machine. If you have a spare pcu around, put it in and see if it makes ANY difference.

White bands across printouts


Either one of the print heads are bad or a cartridge. This is what causes that problem. I know it is a hassle but I would take it back. If try and fix it you could void the warranty.
