Re: Printer prints dark middle stripe on every page?

Remove the cartidge and replace with a new one,

clean the rubber roller and check all drivers are installed correctly or that you have the most uptodate versions.

if this doesnt help solve it, you could invest in a printer repair kit specified for your printer usually found in p.c shops..

if all else fails call up the company.

Xerox 8500 phaser prints brown tint

Most likely the cyan ink is burnt. If the ink sticks are left unused (printing more black than color, this will happen.

Print the test pages for PQ troubleshooting from the control panel and examine each print. Cyan will probably have very dark streaks down the page, magenta should look normal, and yellow also will have dark stripes. You need to replace this burnt ink, and the only way is to print. From within paint (or similar accessory in other OS) Create a full page of cyan, and print about 100 - 200 pages, or until the cyan starts to clear up. Yes it is a waste, but much cheaper than a print head, Do this for yellow as well.

Windows 7 home edition HP Deskjet D1660 Problem: Printer will print a full page document, but stops in the middle of printing a full page photo. I just installed this printer, i bought it yesterday....

I have the same problem with my printer. I don't use it too often, but when I attempt to print more than a few pages in succession, I run into this issue. Normally, the first few pages will print off just fine. Then, suddenly, it will print half of a page and simply stop in the middle. Pressing the power button gets the printer to release the stuck sheet of paper, but then it will not allow me to resume or delete what is in the print queue. I generally have to reboot my computer after unplugging the printer and plugging it back in before I can resume printing. It does this nearly every time with no known error messages. I don't understand why it happens.

The Print has white stripes

White stripes are caused by dust and toner powder on the scanner window, which is situated in the bottom of the printer, under the drum unit. Open the printer, remove the drum unit and using a soft cloth with a little meths wipe the window clean of toner and dust. It's quite dark inside the printer, so use a torch to find the glass panel (only about 10mm deep x the width of the drum).
