It sounds like the black tank/printhead is leaking. If it is, it'll be empty soon. New tank will solve that problem.

It sounds like you need to set the default paper size on your PC.

And make sure the paper size on your printer is set correctly for the paper you are using.

The PC:

Go to your printer folder in control panel>right click on your printer (one at a time) and click on properties>then device settings. Check on your default paper setting. It should be letter if that is what you use most of the time. There is a drop down size menu to select from, however.


Be sure that if you change the printing preferences temporarily when you are printing you do it from your program not from this area, since it is only temp.

It seems strange that both of your printers do the same thing. It must be a functional setting such as this that you have wrong, so give this a look and check on the printer settings. What are you printing when this happens? Documents? If that is the case, it could be margin settings in your document program. If photos and graphics print okay, then you need to take a look at your margin settings also.

Thank you for using Fix Ya. Let me know if this does not work for you.

Chances are you have a bad toner. The lines a spaced about the same width as the diameter of the drum on your blue toner. Shack the toner and try again. The toner may also be spilling toner into your printer.

Printer prints out blank pages


Follow these steps:

1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Turn off your printer.
Hold down the paper button as you press the power button to turn the printer back on. Hold down both buttons until the power light begins to flash, then release the buttons.

The printer prints its test page, which includes a nozzle check. Does the paper print out without any gaps or with gaps? If there are do this:

2. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Make sure the printer is on and the ink light is off.
Right-click the printer icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar) and select Head Cleaning.

Follow the on-screen instructions to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts about 1 minute. The power light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it.

When the power light stops flashing and remains on, you can check to see if the nozzles are clean. Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern and click Print. Check the printed nozzle check pattern to see if there are gaps in the lines.

If there are no gaps, click Finish.

If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, click Clean to clean the print head again.
You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off the printer and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

If this doesn't work then double check that you have the toner cartridges in correctly. If you do then your print head is broken and/or burned out and it's best to just replace the printer. Fixing it would cost more than the printer itself

The printer


You may need to clean the printhead: (make sure you have paper in the tray)

1) Press <Menu>

2) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Ink" then press <OK>

3) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Test print" then press <OK>

4) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Print quality" then press <OK>

5) Press the <Color Start> button. The quality test sheet will be printed. Check this printout for gaps in any of the colors or black in the pattern across the page.

6) The display on the printer will ask if the print quality is OK:

- If all lines are clear and visible, select "Yes"

- If gaps appear in the pattern, select "No"

7) If you select "No" the display asks (in turn) if the print quality is OK for black, and the three colors.

Respond "Yes" or "No" accordingly. (In this manner you may clean just the black or color nozzle that is giving you the problem)

8) The display asks if you want to start cleaning - choose "Yes"

9) After cleaning is finished press the <Color Start> button - the print quality sheet will print again.

At this point you may determine that another cleaning cycle is necessary. You may need to repeat cleanings (up to five times) to resolve the problem. Any more than that indicates a problem that may need brother customer support.

10) When the print quality test sheet meets with your approval, you may exit by pressing <Stop/Exit>

Does not print


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.

If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
You can also clean the print head by holding down the stop button on the printer for three seconds. (This only works when the red ink light is off.) Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, print quality can decline, so turn it on and print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality. ***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

Prints one page on many pages


I think the problem is now fixed: I reinstalled the HP printer drivers, and made sure to choose HP DeskJet 845c in the printer setup before I printed a document.

Language and printing problem


Hi-

Please follow these steps to make sure your printer is physically functioning.

1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the USB printer cable.

2. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

3. Hold down the STOP button as you press the ON button. Hold down both buttons until the ON light begins to flash, then release the buttons.

4. The Nozzle Check page begins printing.

If the page prints, your printer is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software.

If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head.

If the page does not print, the printer may have a problem and troubleshooting the printer is required prior to using it with the computer.

5. If there are no gaps, press OK.

White lines appearing on print


White Lines on the Printed Page ID:193 null.gif null.gif null.gif
Clean the print nozzles as follows:
  1. Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
  2. Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).
  3. Check the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. The diagonal lines should be continuously solid from left to right, with no gaps.
  4. If there are gaps at the top that diminish at the bottom, run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times. If the gaps are gone, the Clean Print Nozzle page has probably resolved the problem.
  5. If the gaps still exist, you should unblock ("wick") the cartridges. See How to Unblock/Wick the Cartridge Nozzles.
    For additional help, refer to the following article: How to Clean the Maintenance Station .
