The correction was given by an H.P. workaround program which corrected the effect in Print Preview and in 2 printers.

Vertical lines

Lines in prints with this machine would suggest a fault with a drum unit. As each toner cartridge contains its own drum unit it is likely to be a particular colour at fault. If the colour is not immediately obvious, I would recommend printing off a test page like the one here:

When printed document is sent to printer, it prints with dark lines below each line of print often obscuring every other line of print .

  1. When connected by a USB cable, reseat both ends of the cable going from the computer to the printer.

  2. When connected to a wired or wireless network, make sure the network is working correctly and that the printer is connected to the network.
  3. (to make sure the printer is on the network, print a network set up page, for more information on how refer to the user's guide, refer to the Downloading and Viewing Printer Manuals section for information on how to download and view the user's guide).

  4. Restart the computer.

  5. Turn the printer off.

  6. Unplug the printer power cord from the A/C outlet or surge protector and wait at least 30 seconds.

  7. Plug the printer power cord back into the A/C outlet or surge protector.

  8. Turn the printer back on.

  9. Make sure the desired printer is set as the default printer.

Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?

The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.

I am unabale to use smart web printing with IE8. I have a C4480 multifunction printer

In answer to your question, yes, there is no harm in leaving Add-ons disabled, however, some website features like Flash applets will not automatically start. Let’s try uninstalling IE8 and rolling back to IE7 to see if this resolves the print problem or to determine if there is something else going on. Here is a link the link to a Microsoft Knowledge Base article that has the steps to uninstall IE8 and return to IE7:
Once you are back to IE7 try and print from IE and some of your other apps. If you can print from IE7 then we will know that there is something definitely within your IE8 installation we need to troubleshoot. If you are STILL unable to print web pages we will know there is something else going on. Lets us know what you find out.

I got sharp printer which is not printing PDF papers. could you please helpout.. please..

If you're trying to print out PDF's directly off a web site, this could be your problem. There's coding anomalies between web pages and imbedded PDF's that can cause some printers to lock up, show error codes or simply not print the screen out. You may want to avoid these web page PDF's as to my knowledge there's presently no solution to directly print these out.

Also, if the document is first in line in your print queue it can block any other documents from printing, so you'll need to delete the PDF from the queue.

Scanner leaves three vertical lines on scanned page


A dirty glass base can cause ‘spots’ or blemishes to appear on your final printout. Additionally, if you had some sort of opaque liquid that may have transferred on to the glass base from a previous operation. But the majority of the unwanted vertical lines are generally caused by either a dirty or damaged print roller or faulty LEDs in the Scanner Module.

To separate one from the other you have to check the following:

Do you only see the lines with a Scan operation?
Do your print jobs print fine without any unwanted lines?

If you only see the unwanted lines during a Scan operation, then most likely you have a fault/dirty/obstructed LED module.

If you see the unwanted lines with all print operations (Scan, Print and Copy), then you most likely have a worn out, damaged or dirty Print Roller.

Hope this helps…

When I cancel the printer does not print other items that have been scanned. it gets hung up.

when you print an article on-line. it goes into your printers memory. 10 pages for instance. if you cancel after 5 pages. the printers RAM ( memory ) stores the remaining pages to be printed. the only way to do this, is to cancel printing. then go into printer program. and delete the queue, or pending items, before exiting windows.
hope this explains your dillema.

Double printing

This one is too lenghty to give you here, goto, and in support knowledge base, search with this line...blurry, fuzzy, or double print from a lexmark x4720...There is specific info on test pages you need to run to narrow this down.
It could even be a conflict with motherboard/proccessor that can occur with some e-machines, compacs and others using certain amd chipsets
