Question about HP LaserJet 2840 Printer

1 Answer

When printing in color a yellow line appears on document

Whenever I print in color, a yellow line appears over the full width of the document, I can appear anywhere on the page, but always a horizontal line.

At first it would appear ever so often, but now it is on every single color page. Black & White no problem.

I have used both cleaning procedures, and also took out all cartridges and drums and cleaned the inside of the printer.

Out of idea's now, can you help ?

Bizhub C652 has horizontal lines.


its important to find out whether the \'lines\' are in scan direction/ or only through Radf or only from scan glass,

if the lines are only showing when documents are fed throught the Radf, then the problem lies with the document scan plate( left of the main glass platen (about 2" in width)) or with the scan plate blade cleaner

if the lines ONLY appear when copying from the Glass then the issue lies within the optics (probably nothing more than a clean will be needed)

another question would be to ask if the lines are solid (black line overprinting image) or if they are \'missing\' lines where the image has failed to copy, sometimes it can be hard to work out which side the fault lies,so try shaded greys as a copy original .

if the scan lines are appearing on both Radf and Glassplatten ,mode then the issue may be dirty optics/ccd sensor or it could e an indication of the ccd failing or image control pwb in error while interpreting the image file.

what to do

1) place a grey sheet of paper in the Radf and have the copier photocopy both sides of the original and print to single sided sheets ( so the printer turns the original over to complete the task)

observe the result.

2) have the copier photocopy directly from the platten glass- single sided.

observe the result.

ckeck to see if the error has appeared on both sets of prints ,

if the error has only appeared in the first set of prints then the issue may be a tiny DOT on the slit glass (left of platten) - a dot on this glass will indeed appear as a Line as the original is scanned across the glass.

hhope thhis helps

Thin lines which appear at random in the text and cannot be deleted.


Yes, this can be a real pain, probably caused by importing from another source. Open a new document. Highlight the required text (inside the lines) in the old one, hit Control C, then paste the selection (control V) into the new document.

Blue and yellow not printing


Just make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured or clone cartridges, you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Try cleaning the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software installed on your computer instead:1. On your computer, go to Start menu.2. Go to Programs.3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.5. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean it from dirt and possible clogs.
Should the problem continue, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to have your genuine cartridge replaced. They might ask for your receipt so have them ready. If you're not using genuine supplies, please replace your cartridges with original supplies.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.
