Pages print with a line thru all the text. They aren't underlines, but have an actual line printed over the text. How do I change this?


Hello,

It's called overstrike.

Try send a print out from another application. If result is same, then print a self test page. Still the same, then replace cartridge.

Otherwise, head needs service/replacement.

However, if self test print out look good then you should check printer preferences.

good luck

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

5610 printing just a line in the middle of the page, else blank!


wow..I could be the FIRST..I am impressed..NOT!
check to see if there is ink, by blotting the print head on damp paper towel.
otherwise..delete and reinstall the printer. could be a software problem.

Make sure the paper aligning slides are tight to the sides of the paper. In the case that they are spring loaded make sure there is not something preventing them from holding the paper properly aligned.
The print head could be 'off-track'...
If the text is properly aligned on the edge of the page, but appears crooked it is related to the print head assembly. If the text is not aligning to the edge of the page then the paper is not feeding straight and the paper aligning slides are at fault.
It is also possible that one of the paper feed rollers are not grasping the paper and it is forcing it to one side as it pulls it in.
