Problem printing When I print anything but text the alignment is off and they look like someone smugged them. I've tried using the alignment feature on my printer (Epson Stylus Photo RX 500) but it doesn't seem to help. So now I am at a loss. What can I do now?

Re: Problem printing

Turn off high speed printing from the printer properties... This will allow a more stable type of printing... If you have windows, the printer properties in in the control panel's printers folder.

I think your text document didn't fit the page. I have done that before. It overruns and the extra becomes the lines inbetween. To fix this use microsoft publisher to print it so that you can choose the paper size and the borders and fit the document within the space allowed.

Doesn't sound like your printer hardware. Try printing something other than your text document. If the page comes out clean/perfect then it means your printer is having a problem understanding your text document via print program translation. Otherwise try converting your text to pdf and print a sample page, if it works then again problem with software/printer translation.

My Lexmark x4690 all-in-one printer is not printing. It prints if I go through the touch pad menu on the printer and print an alignment page but not if I try to print anything from my computer. Text,...

You may need to uninstall the existing X4690 driver first before installing it's driver for Windows 7. Follow the instructions in this artricle on How to Uninstall Lexmark Printers. Once driver is uninstalled, reboot pc when prompted. Reinstall using the driver for Windows 7 from the Lexmark website at:
- Lexmark X4690 Driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark X4690 Driver for Windows 7 64-bit
Hope this helps.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK

Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.

Hi kelbel, Here is the HP link the software downloads for your device. Click on the link for your operating system and select either the full feature or basic feature software download. Your CD had the full feature but at 276MB you may prefer the 37MB basic download instead. Let us know if you need anything else and don?t forget to rate the post.
