Question about Lexmark P6250 All-In-One InkJet Photo Printer

When I print pictures, there is a red and green line across them

I assume the printer needs to be cleaned? If that's correct, can I do it somehow?

Thanks

Open the Lexmark Solution Center (shortcut should be in the Start Menu under Lexmark 6200 Series).
Click on the Maintenance tab.
Click on Clean to fix horizontal streaks.

If this doesn't help, you can try gently cleaning the nozzles manually using a cotton ball dipped in a little rubbing alcohol, then dry with a clean cloth. A little ink may come out when you do this and that's OK.

My Officejet 6000 E609n printer doesn't print the correct colors. The red is printing yellow and the blue and green are a lighter version of what is on the screen. I have cleaned the printer head


Hi,

This is not a cartridge issue. IT is Printhead issue. Since you have done the manual cleaning, it is now time to replace the Printhead.

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

Poor picture printing


Do not try to clean print head again and again, it consumes too much of ink.
Try reseting print head and then calibrate it.   after then check nozzles and align prinhead.   Now u can try cleaning printhead last time.
If it does not fix your issue , your printer needs to be replaced  (In case printhead has already replaced within 30 days)

Orangy red lines across the pictures


You will need to replace the cyan cartridge and do a print head clean. You can clean the head through the menu on your control console on the printer. In your control console, you will also find a thing called a nozzle check. If you print this out you will find that there are missing lines in your cyan. A printhead clean should fix this.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Red lines across page


What program are you using to print the pictures? Try cleaning the print heads and using another program.

Vertical lines


1. Took out the ink carts and cleaned the copper contacts of both the ink carts.
2. Clean the copper contacts on the ink carts slot in the printer and then insert the ink carts in the printer and then print out the page.
