HI! What cleaning did you do? Was it the printers own program or did you manually do it yourself with proper cleaning solution and a cotton tip? A new cartridge will not work if the printthead is blocked. Try manula clean if not already. Cheers lilacgerry xxx

HP Deskjet 3050 missing lines when printing

Since the print head(s) are installed into the cartridges themselves, it makes this easier to troubleshoot. First, are all colors affected or just black? You don't say whether or not the cleaning pages and alignment pages are printing properly so I assume they have the same problem. Next, are you using genuine HP cartridges or are these remanufactured/aftermarket units? Non-genuine cartridges are often remanufactured many times over and eventually fail in use. If they are genuine cartridges, and if the problem appears to be only with either the black or the color cartridge, but not both, try another cartridge. New cartridges can be defective. IF that is the case, contacting HP about it should get you credit for a new one. If the problem is related to both cartridges and new ones don't fix the issue, then the problem is in the printer itself and there isn't much you can do about it other than replacement since printers are so inexpensive that repairs are not cost effective.

When printing color there are lines that appear across the page

This issue is usually caused by miss-aligned cartridges or failing cartridges.
Try re-aligning the cartridges by going through the setup and selecting option to realign.

  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Press the up or down arrow buttons to select Maintenance and press the OK button.
  3. Press one of the button to print an alignment sheet. Note: Do not cancel printing while you are printing a head alignment pattern.
This alignment can also be done using utility software for this printer.

If alignment does not fix the issue then try cleaning cartridge before replacing them. Procedure for cleaning is the same as above.

HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new

  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.

To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

Not printing properly

Print heads need to be cleaned cause they are clogged which is why even replacing the cartridges is not fixing the problem.

If the printhead can't be cleaned then a new printer is in order.

Black printing incorrectly

check whether there is an alignment adjustment in the printer driver, the lines may simply be one nozzle out of alignment., or the connector between the print carriage and cartridge may be dirty, causing that one nozzle to misfire

not a guarantee, just something to check

Canon i455 not printing properly

(i posted this for someone before)

When you remove the black cartridge there will be electrical contacts inside the printer that lines up with some contacts on your cartridge, make sure these are clean

Also, according to this printers manual, have you tried a printer head align?

"(1) Open the Printer Properties dialog box. See Opening the Printer Properties dialog box directly from the Start menu
(2) Click the Maintenance tab.
(3) Click Print Head Alignment.
Follow the instructions on the screen."
