My printed photo's have lines in them. I've had this problem for several months. When needed, I install new ink cart., but the lines remain. The lines are white and slight but still visible. Any suggestions? And thank you!

Re: Printer lines in photo's
Click Start - All programs - HP - HP Solution center.
In HP solution center Click on the Printing Shortcuts tab. Select Photoprinting with borders or borderless. Click OK.
Then close the HP solution center. Try printing. Print photos always with Best quality.
If the issue persists check the ink level of both cartridges and use Photos Cartridge HP 58 to print photos. We insert the Photo cartridge in place of black cartridge.

Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.
When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.
a refilled cartridge IN NO WAY can lead to printer failure the ink is the last thing on printer and has no effect to mechanical failures. check here how you can refill your cartridge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=II9gpIXs_lE
This printer model has a print head seperate from the carts. Over time, the print head can become clogged. Try removing the print head assembly from the printer and dipping just the printhead (the silver thing on the bottom) into a shallow dish of just boiled water several times. Dry off, reinstall print head and carts and try again. My need to do a few times. This will get rid of any congealed ink on the print head. Otherwise, new printer, as the replacement print head is more expensive than a new printer. Canon kind of made these disposable. Can also try to inject water through the cartridge port when the printhead is out of the printer ( the hole where the cartridge goes into) with hot water as well...
have you tryed a head clean? try this if it still does it what i did when mine did this i found it was the ink cart take the ink cart out get a cotten woolplug cut one end off and stick it in the bottem of the ink cart with the other end that still got the wool on just clean insite printer where cart goes regards mark
First printing a photo takes lots of ink , it depends on the color of the photo , cyan is blue which maybe consumed more in the printing or there changes that the ink may have dried in the cart hence your getting this error ,remove cart take damp paper towel and hold the paper on the place where ink comes out gently for 20 second ,make it does not touch copper contact it may damage the cart ,make sure you check the place where ink with dry paper its usually bottom of the cart and repeat the above step with dry paper towel and try to print if you get the same error then you need to replace the cart or you can contact brother support and get cart replaced , once cart is used you need print once in week to keep cart from drying, you can use any photo paper which is compatible with printer .
This could be to several reasons: 1# The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.
2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks. Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.
Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking. BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....
