Solve horizontal line in cartage 12A


Horisontal line: I assume you mean a line across the paper movement direction. Please, inspect if the line is repeating on exact distance from one to the other. Measure the distance, divide by Pi (3.14) and you'll get the diameter of the faulty roller. Also, please, make a half print test page (open the cover in the middle of the printing process). Inspect if the line is appearing before the fusing unit or after it.
Try printing with different cartridge, just to be sure the cartrige is causing the problem.
Primary charge roller and its bearrings can be dirty and not charging enough the drum, causing black lines
Weared stripe on the OPC drum caused by friction with jammed paper improperly pulled out can also be the root of the problem. Faulty laser-scanner unit can also write black lines randomly. Weared teflon sleeve on the fusing unit can accumulate toner and print repetitive defects.

How do I fix Vertical lines on print out. I do not have solid colour when I print in colour instead I have lines. I have cleaned the print head, tried to align print head numerous times and replaced black...


Open "properties", on the bottom you will see "printing preferences". Try changing the print quality to "high" or adjust the color intensity manually- there are 2 options, "auto" and "manual". Check the "manual" and adjust it.

Lexmark x1270 wont print color even though the cartridge is full.


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:

1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.

The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Power the printer off.
2. Press and hold the "Paper Feed" button.
3. While still holding the "Paper Feed" button, press and release the "Power" button. Continue holding the "Paper Feed" button.
4. When the printer starts pulling paper, release the "Paper Feed" button. It should print a test page at this point.
5. Power the printer off, as this test is continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed). If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know.

4. Keep holding the "Paper Feed" button until one sheet is cycled through.
5. The test is continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously).

SOLID BLACK LINE FROM LEAD EDGE TO TRAIL EDGE


"dk" means the the life black drum is over. You need to replaced the drum and blade. Or you can replaced the whole drum cartridge. The line that you are getting from one of the blades, more likely from the black drum. Pull out all the drum check if there is toner on the drums.

Lines rule across my print out paper at photocopying mode


Make sure you don't have a scratch on the glass of the scanner. If you have a mark, or scratch that matches the line ruled on your print, then there is your problem.

It;s also possible the scanner is jerking as it goes across the bed, which is causing the line. Is the line solid, dashed, bold, thin or just kinda there?
