Faint white line observed on print

When print a 8 1/2 X 11 picture a faint white line is observable from across the longer length of the paper. Tried printing 5x7 prints and lines is still observed at the same place across the paper so only two pictures are affected by this. Could this be a problem with the drivers or is it a hardware problem with the printer?

I have tried everthing in "Lexmark X5495 Help"

Sounds like you just need a new printer. Some times the encoder wheel can get dirty with aerosolized ink and it will start to skip lines. The encoder wheel is a small plastic wheel on the paper feed of your printer. Around the edge of the wheel are hundreds of small thin black lines. As paper goes through the printer it counts these lines as the wheel turns to know how far to push the paper. If ink or debris gets between the lines over time it can start counting two lines as one and thus advance the paper too far, causing blank space between prints. See the below picture of a printer encoder wheel for reference. My professional opinion is to not purchase Lexmark. New Canon printers are very reliable with a high quality output, look for one that uses CLI-221 cartridges. Or most any HP.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines

Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Faint one inch wide line appears at the same time, every time.

We've seen this problem in our shop. The document is "timing out" and the gap is where it restarts. You have to set the print manager to wait to print until the document is finished processing. Any large print will do the same thing. Try "pausing" the printer on your computer, then execute the "print" command in Photoshop, then go back to the printer control panel and "un-pausing" the printer.

Dirty printing job

Are they lines from one edge to the other in a straight line. Or is it faint reprint across the page?
Thin lines would most likely be a bad drum or cleaning blade.
If it is faint reprint it is the heat roller in the fuser.

Faint Black Lines

Hi best way to check is to remove the black photoconductor and you should be able to see the little lines on it also check the the black dev/toner unit for the lines. most likely to be the black photoconductor unit though.

Thanks J
