Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints half the line

My HP 1315 printer prints only half the line for the blank ink... as if it's running out of ink, but it's a brand new ink cartridge. The color ink works fine. Any ideas?

It sounds like your print head is dirty. Try cleaning the printhead in using the printers options, If that does not work replace the black printhead.

Brand new printer with brand new ink prints BLANK pages


Hi Mike This is an odd one. If it prints the bars then ir should print everything else - cleaning is just wasting ink in this case.
I'm guessing that this is still under warranty, so I would take it back and get it replaced.

the printing cartridge are probably dry out. you can try to take them out and touch bottom side with soft paper to see if any ink will leak out. you can try to shake them rapidly while holding in hand, keeping the paper on the bottom side (because if theres ink you will get dirty :)

Printer prints blank page


Is this a brand new printer? What is the make and model of your printer? Are the ink cartridges brand new? Sometimes when the printer driver becomes corrupted it will print out blank page (page after page) I would reinstall the printer driver that goes to your printer and then restart your computer and try to print a new page.

The machine prints documents when using the print


When not used for any length of time, ink jet printer print heads will clog with dry ink. You can try to manually clean the printhead with a cloth moistened with water or maybe alcohol until you get some ink on the cloth. Then reinstall and run cleaning cycle. If unsuccessful, new cartridges are needed.

4580 all in one less than 6 mos old started printing half lines


try to clean the print heads of the ink cartridges. you can do it in the HP solution center. you can run it through all 3 tests so you make sure its clean. if it doesnt work after that, your ink cartidge level might be off, because i hear they never work half the time anyways. i would buy new ink if the cleaning the heads does not work. good luck!

HP 5550 prints only half of most lines


If you print very much, especially with color, the best solution may be to sell the HP, and get  a Canon MP520,  it's super fast for an inkjet, the brand name Canon ink cartridges are much larger in (ml) ink, it comes with FULL ink cartridges, not starters with little ink.   The color in is in individual cartridges C, Y M (they don't all get used at the same rate) so you will potentiall save lots of money.  A Canon brand Black cartridge for $13 prints about twice as many pages as the HP $30 cartridge ... you do the math.  

Oh yeah,  it's a scanner and fast color&bw copier too.

$129 at walmart (the cost of about 4 HP cartridges)  I am confident that you will never buy another HP printer.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.


I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!
