SOURCE: Printer is not aligning paper properly.

Please try the following to resolved that issue:

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.

SOURCE: Papaer will not feed

Epson have released a firmware update on their support website for this problem. This appears to have solved the problem

SOURCE: lines across horizontal on my printed piece

Do a nozzle check and determine if a head cleaning is required. I'm betting that a couple of headcleanings will solve the problem.

Solve horizontal line in cartage 12A


Horisontal line: I assume you mean a line across the paper movement direction. Please, inspect if the line is repeating on exact distance from one to the other. Measure the distance, divide by Pi (3.14) and you'll get the diameter of the faulty roller. Also, please, make a half print test page (open the cover in the middle of the printing process). Inspect if the line is appearing before the fusing unit or after it.
Try printing with different cartridge, just to be sure the cartrige is causing the problem.
Primary charge roller and its bearrings can be dirty and not charging enough the drum, causing black lines
Weared stripe on the OPC drum caused by friction with jammed paper improperly pulled out can also be the root of the problem. Faulty laser-scanner unit can also write black lines randomly. Weared teflon sleeve on the fusing unit can accumulate toner and print repetitive defects.

Printing too light


For understand the issue, little bit technical knowledge required: Take half test page, check how much dark image formed on paper, check on cartridge drum how much dark image created?..(half test page: while printing half of the page switch off the printer, take cartridge out as well as take half printed page)If half page print quality is good on paper: Fuser faulty(teflon sleeve)If half test page print not good & image on drum is OK: Fault with Transfer roller or its bios voltage contacts..If there is proper image on paper & image drum: Problem with laser scanner assembly..find the problem, then remedy is easy..

How do i clean the hp printer's in order to get a clean and darker print?


Print quality depends on cartridge health condition only, especially in inkjet printers.*Print head clogging: Usually white horizontal lines in print outs due to print head nozzles are clogged. Printer it self having self cleaning mechanism to clean the nozzles while printing & powering on..And "clean nozzles" option also designed in printer drivers for cleaning. And last option is manual cleaning. Alcohol is good solvent & best for cleaning the nozzles,use cotton or ear buds to swab on the surface of the nozzles with alcohol gently.. You will get good quality print outs if cartridges are in good condition..(see the snap shots)Other parts to clean: Encoder,disc encoder, service station & rollers needs to clean periodically to avoid malfunctions & paper jams.* Encoder's malfunctions: If any vertical or horizontal crooked print outs observed, clean both encoders needs to clean.. (see snap shot for encoders)*Service station malfunctions: If any carriage jams observed in service station, remove & clean it ..(see the snap shot)*Rollers malfunctions: If media is not picking up properly it causes jamming error,clean or replace the rollers..

Hello,
one idea is that you rouined printhead with tap water and second idea is to buy new print head or printer.
Note: If you want to replace ink head, be sure to replace purge unit and ink absorber also.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

HP4+ print quality was perfect, but printer was jamming, so I replaced all the roller parts in the Maintenance Kit, which corrected all jamming! All the paper rollers and the transfer roller is now...


Run the 1/2 test.
Load paper in the manual feed tray.
Print anything that requires more than 2 sheets.
As the paper enters the printer open the top cover.
Remove the toner cartridge.
Look down at the paper.
If it looks like the problems you described, change the toner.
If it looks good, reinstall the old transfer roller and rerun the test.
If transfer roller doesn't fix it, you have a bad fuser. Put the old one in and repeat.

How to clean Lexmark Z1320 printer.


hi..

You can clean the cartridge using the following steps:

Click on "Start," go to "All Programs," and down to the Lexmark. Click on the "Solution Center." Next, click on the "Maintenance" tab. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips." This will produce a printed page.

The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

1. Please open the "Solution Center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge (or cartridges) from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. Also, wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier).
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" one more time. If this fails to address the problem, the entire procedure may need repeating.

try out..

Hi xander4265:
I
Streaks in direction of paper travel
There are dark lines running along
the page in the direction of paper
travel from the leading edge to the
trailing edge (B-size print shown).
The printer displays no error code.
Note A-size prints are processed
through the printer with the short
edge of the print parallel to the
direction of the paper path --
making horizontal print artifacts
parallel to the shot edge of the
print.
B-size prints are processed
through the printer with the long
edge of the print parallel to the
paper path -- making horizontal
artifacts parallel to the long axis
of the print.
1. Check the end of life for each of
the consumables by printing the
supplies usage page. From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu, select
Print Supplies Page.
2. Run the solid fill test pages; From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu,
select Service Pages, then select Print Solid Fill Pages. If the missing bands
only occur in a single primary color, replace the print cartridge of the affected
color.
3. Swap print cartridges and run another test print.
Note Under some circumstances, streaking may occur in the margin of
SRA3-size paper. This is due to the edges of the paper extending
beyond the end of the imaging components. print-quality in the
margins of SRA3 paper is not guaranteed.
4. Inspect the Accumulator Belt cleaner; replace the cleaner, if necessary.
5. Run the Remove Print Smears routine. From the front panel’s Support Menu,
select Improve Print-Quality?, then select Remove Print Smears.
6. Replace the Developer Housing Assembly (RRP 27, on page 7-171).
7. Remove the print cartridge and (with a flashlight) check for debris along the
edge of the developer housing.
