Run the cleaning cycle. If that doesn't work, try to use an alcohol soaked swab on the print head. Some of the jets are clogged.

1. Use isopropanol alcohol to swab the print head 2. Clean the rest of the printer of dust and debris by vacuuming or wiping 3. Print a test page 4. If the test page still has lines missing repeat steps 1 - 3

Horzontal white lines cut through print and picture copies. When doing head allignment the horozontal bars all have a white gap, 1 through 7. Epson Stylus CX5400

You don't need to do head alignment, because it is for vertical banding in printout. Vertical banding can be minimized by disabling high speed option without doing head alignment. If your printout have horizontal white lines, do check nozzle and head cleaning, or you can minimize white lines by printing in best quality (photo).

Red and blue lines across printouts

open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

it could be that the lines on the spreadsheet arent bolded correctly or the spacing at the end of the document needs to be shortened. try to delete one space so that that line is brought up a line.

Magenta horizontal banding on all color printout

I suggest that if your machine is under warranty you call out HP, as I have heard that they don't support these machines with parts therefore you will get a new machine.
Good Luck

If the paper feeds through but nothing is on it, it indicates that the toner is not being properly fed. Go to this link, type "printout is blank" in the Search window and click the search button. Next, click on the "Printout is blank" line, and review the document. Especially check that you have removed the seals from the toner cartridge (see steps 7 and 9 on the second part).

I need to know if this is a sudden occurence or has it happened before. Is cartridge new or refilled or older, and did it print right until now. Also need to know if you have made any recent system changes and if you run anti virus and spyware.
