Printing is not good

Assuming you have ink, you need to clean and/or realign the print heads.
Go to properties on the software for the printer and look for maintenance cleaning and realignment should be in there

Toner cartiridges are full but pages are printing blank

Turn your printer off. Disconnect from your computer by disconnection of cable, from the back of the printer. Unplug your printer from the wall.

Remove your print cartridges and gently wipe off the connections (copper or brass colored) with a dry lint-free cloth. Check to see if the bottom of the ink gates (holes where ink comes out) are clogged. Wipe gently with an almost dry but damp cloth, once or twice. Ink will continually come out, so only do this once or twice.

Plug printer back into the wall, connect power cable to printer. Turn printer on.

HP Photosmart will run through a series of checklists. First, it will ask if you would like to "realign" the printer heads. Press "enter" or "yes" and allow heads to realign. If you always have your printer and computer on, this realignment never happens, therefore the heads where the ink is dispersed from the modules will get clogged, and ink will never come out.

There are horizontal lines on the print. Even after realigning the print head it is still coming. What do i do?

if it's an inkjet printer, the print head is surely dirty. try wiping the bottom sides of the print head gently with a dry piece of cloth without touching the actual print nozzles, which can easily be damaged.

Technics sl 1200 MK2 WEAK SOUND

Regarding the poor sound quality (and possibly the skipping):
check the needle condition, see if exchanging it with a needle (or the entire pickup head) from a working turntable does any good.

Check the pickup connection pins (contacts on the pickup head and on the end of the wires coming through the arm from the unit), see if there is any dirt or oxydation and clean the contacts if necessary, also check for any damage to the wires.

As for the skipping - a heavily worn needle may affect the sound quality and cause skipping as well - if cahnging the needle (or the pickup head) doesn't make a change, try to realign the weight on the tone arm so that the pickup head will become a bit heavier, this could help somewhat (before you actually try to realign the weight, try to put a small coin or a small weight of some kind on the pickup head while it is playing a record, if the skipping goes away, you need to realign the tone arm weight).

This could also be a problem with the tone arm lifting mechanism (may be obstructed by something or damaged so it won't let the tone arm sit properly onto the record and "grab" the groove).

I just mentioned a few things you might want to check, but don't take anything for granted, the problem may as well be elsewhere in the unit.

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......

Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

There are a few different applications that can aid you in doing this. Here is one. Most often than not, the heads will not be realigned properly with such software, and the cost of purchasing the mechanical tools to do it manually and the time and energy it takes outweigh the cost of just buying a new drive. If you are having read/write problems, and an inexpensive head cleaner ( does not solve the problem, I would recommend replacement.
