Question about HP Officejet Pro L7580 All-In-One InkJet Printer
We have blank streaks about an inch apart accross all print outs and photocopies. We have cleaned photocopier and print heads, what else can we do?
The streaks are likely only present beside a bold character or heavy print section of the doccument content.
The print head assembly is likely carrying an obscure hair or piece of fluff back and forth which is acting like a paint brush.
The offending fibre is mos likely attached to the adge of the cartridge or print head carriage assembly. Also check the dervice station where the catridge docks when not printing as it can store fibres in the capping and wiping components especially if the printer is situated low to the ground where fibres tend to fly or you have fine haired pet like a cat, rabbit or toy dog.
Best way to clean is to trick the printer to unpark carriage (open top door to trigger carriage to present itself) then uplug power. Now you can move things at will to clean up with moist cotton buds (clean water is best).
