    when printing lots of lines accross print out can anyone help

    done all tests

  • short1 Apr 15, 2008

    My DeskJet 882C did that. Then I started to get small chunks of something on the picture also. The belt that the ink follows frayed and now I am trying to find out if there is a way to change it. I bought it used and I want to know if it is worth fixing. I really miss being able to use it. I didn't know how often I used it until I couldn't any more.

Chunk it, you can buy a brand new printer with better dpi 4800x1200 instead of the 990 that is 2400x1200 for 30 bux at walmart

Black lines on faxes or copies

Do you have black lines in your scanned or copied documents? The typical problem is ink, correction fluid or trash blocking the image sensor. Look at the picture below, the image sensor is marked by the gray box. Use a paper towel dampened with window cleaner to clean this glass strip. Do not spray windows cleaner on the glass just the paper towel. Gently scrub the glass to clean off any trash or marks that may be there. Let the glass dry for a few minutes and then try to copy or scan something.f86a7c5.jpg

You should have a clean copy now. If you have any questions you can contact us at:

My scanner when it scans there are little lines accross the picture it does not matter if I print it straight out or save it anything scanned HP photosmart c5180 all in one any thoughts

if the lines are in the direction of paper feed, the problem is probably dirt or ink from ball points on the glass. Against the dark background it is very hard to see. Try alcohol on a clean cloth and scrub the glass vigorously.
It could be that the ink cart are getting plugged up or just needs replaced.

Vertical white lines in scanned image

Did you try cleaning the little glass strip where the documents go in? Lift the button panel and wipe the glass with rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs or lens paper if you have it. Mine does this sometimes when dust or white out or little bits of paper get stuck on the glass.
Good luck!

Top Feeder scanner leaves a line along the copy

This Is good for all "all in one machines"

There is a dot on the 1inch glass, when making a copy or faxing or scanning it makes it form that part of the glass. It shows as a line because the paper is moving as it is being scanned. clean the glass w/ alcohool. Sometimes it is hard to see because the background is black and the dot may be a pen or pencil, but it's there.

try to take the copy and lign it up w the glass and look where the line is you might see it htere.
