When I print a photo, vertical lines appear throughout the photo. The ink cartridges are new. No error message appears on screen.


Hello,

Please state the model of your printer.

Vertical lines appears on prints because the nozzles on your print head are blocked, it doesn't means all nozzles but some of your nozzles are blocked. A print head of an inkjet consists of many tiny little pores or nozzles, through which jets of inks are sprayed on the photo paper to create an image, if some of this tiny pores are blocked print outs deteriorates, so cleaning the print head is an option if your printer has print head inside the printer you can first clean it through the head cleaning option present in the maintainence tab of your printer software, for printers that have print head on the cartridges, you can add a few drops of isopropryl alcohol on the print head and leave it for a minute and put it back on the printer and run the head cleaning utility of your printer software.

Hope this helps you.

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.

Dark vertical lines on printed photos 18cm apart


Remove the cartridge and put it back in. If same issue persists, try to do head cleaning and nozzle checks simultaneously from the computer.

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes (Windows XP) / Printers (Windows Vista) -> Printer Icon (right click) -> Printing Preferences -> Maintenance

You should be able to see nozzle check, click it and follow the prompt. Line patterns that corresponds to the colors of the ink cartridges would be printed. If breaks on those patterns appears, continue with head cleaning. Try to do this about 3 times until all patterns are complete.

I have a canon pixma mp 470 printer/scanner that i am using for the first time to print pictures. The first one printed out beautifully, but every picture since then has visible vertical lines in it. I...


rrenor,

You will find that the ink in the cartridge is low or almost out. If you haven't printed pictures for some time than the unit has still purged, which means to have sucked ink through the head, everytime you have turned it on. The long and short of this is that over time it has been emptying your cartridges. Nothing you can do about it, it is just the wayy these machines operate. Try checking the ink levels and if they are all full, leave the print head in park overnight and try again tomorrow, see what happens. If it is still giving you lines than it may need to have the print head replaced.
Don't do any more cleans now, you are just wasting your ink. Allow it to sit and you may find it will fix itself.

Photos they come with a yellow line through it


This kind of thing happens to me a lot when my cartridge is running out of ink, and if it has been doing it since you first used the cartridge it may just be a dodgy cartridge.

However, this printer doesn't print the clearest of pictures even at the best of times. If when you do the alignment check you find that in the selection with the least obvious lines, the lines are still pretty obvious, then your printer's just not very good.

Printing light colors does not work


You RINSED the printhead???

I wouldn't do that again.

Try taking a damp cloth and dabbing it against the printhead nozzels until you get lines forming on the rage from the ink (the nozzels you're having trouble with specifically).
