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.

Prints blank page

Have you checked the print que
Printer problems can be a real hassle.
From time to time, due to document layout or settings on your computer, in your software of choice, or even on your printer, a blank page may get "printed" with the rest of your document.
Fortunately, this issue is a simple one to troubleshoot.
Click "Print Preview" when you are finished with your document and ready to print.
Observe your document.
If you see an extra, blank page, you have created a second page.
To delete the second page, close Print Preview, go back into the document and eliminate any blank lines in your documents that you may not need.
You may also find an inadvertent page break at the end of your document.
Place your cursor on its symbol and delete it.
Locate the symbol by clicking on the Show Formatting paragraph icon in the toolbar.

Circumvent this "ghost page" if you do not see a second (or additional) blank page in Print Preview.

Specify the number of pages you wish to print, within the Print dialogue box.
This is typically done by selecting the "Print From" option, then entering the page numbers desired.
If your document happens to be ten pages (without, of course, that final blank page), then enter in the "Print From" field the numbers "1-10".
This will print only pages 1 through 10, without an eleventh (blank) page.

Since I have my new computer and have downloaded the Windows 7 driver, when my printer prints, after each page it kicks out a blank page. Any suggestions...thanks.

it could be that on the document that you print, you have an extra page there. so be extra careful, go to the print settings and put in from which page to which page you want the printer to print.

Extra horizontal lines on my document.

Have a real good cleanup of the ink that was (presumably) leaking from the old black cartridge. Remove the cartridges from the cartridge carrier and use kitchen paper towel to soak up any ink in the bottom. Give the cartridge outlet holes a dab on the towel as well. Replace the cartridges promptly.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back. You should now be able to (carefully) move the print head by hand. Place a layer of paper towel on the printer track, and move the print head across it to mop up any surplus ink. Move the print head across to the left out of the way and use kitchen towel to mop up surplus ink in the Print Head parking area.

Now turn the printer on and carry out a cleaning cycle (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are there any extra black lines in evidence now? If so, try another 1 or 2 cleaning cycles and nozzle check. Black lines gone now?

If you still have the black lines, come back with a new comment.

If this information is useful to you, please rate it.

Printer prints first page with strange nonsensical characters

I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in but also in other office applications.

Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.
