A few days ago my printer began printing about 3 lines, skipping 2 lines and printed the bottom half of the next line - it printed the whole page in this manner. Someone at Office Max, where I bought the...


Hi bkoll2,

When your printer seems to be skipping lines it's mostly because your printhead needs cleaning. This cleaning must be done ONLY by using the printer utility on the PC. If you cleaned them manually you might have damaged the ink cartridges or the printer itself. Try replacing the ink cartridges and trying again.

If you're still having issues check this detailed guide: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01957673&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3643612

Otherwise contact tech support.

Hope this helped.

Black ink problem with printout on hp7780


Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

Won't print on regular paper


My quess would be that printhead is becoming clogged, photos don't use as much ink as plain paper printouts that is why they look faded! You need to call Kodak tech support!

Not printing microsoft office documents, VIsta Software


Try to press the photo and copy at the same time it will print a diagnostic page
look how is the quality of the text.
if it prints very light or if it doesnt print open the access door and try to remove the ink cartridges and put it back again and make sure you hear a click sound after you put the cartridges back in and close the printer access door
try to print again a demo page press photo and copy and check if there is improvement
if no improvement open the kodak aio home center software click on the question mark(?) on the upper right corner and click on maintenance..then select printhead cleaning.After the printhead cleaning print again demo page (press photo and copy at the same time) if still no improvement on the quality of the text call the kodak hotline 1 800 421 6699..you might need a printhead replacement..

My HP Office jet 6210


If the printer seems to be printing and ejects paper when a page seems finished, communication is happening, just no ink.
To see if it is an ink or printhead problem, take any Word document, highlight all text and change the font color. Then try printing it; I would try this with a few different colors to see if any part of the printhead is capable of producing visible material.

Lots of paper, but practically no printing


Are you using a canon? It may be that the printhead is clogged up. Try "clean printhead" option supplied with the driver. Canon printers have separate ink and printhead unlike other brands. You may also replace the printhead if cleaning doesn't help.
