Printer needs to be cleaned. Q-tips work well use acohol make sure printer is off and unplugged. Squeeze acohol out of Q-tip and wipe all areas of the bars, capstans(little wheels that pull the paper) Remove all black spots from the wheels. All bars should be cleaned in the same fashion. Let dry.
Do not drip liquid in printer. Make sure the Q-tip is just damp with alcohol.

When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.


Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.
  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

    win_main_print_quality.jpg

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    win_print_quality_slider.jpg

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.

It prints vertical lines where the text is.


check your drum unit. The toner cartridge mounts into the drum which can be permanently charged causing a constant streak to occur.

Solution:
Remove the toner and drum unit. Clean them off with a non-fuzzy non-rough cloth or paper towel. Pay particular attention to where the streaks are in relation to the toner cartridge and drum. If you clean it off and you still get streaks check whether they transfer from the toner or just from the drum.

There may be a way to discharge the drum, otherwise you need a new drum.

Problem with printing smoothly


Hi morshi. I found a potential solution to your problem with your 5610 printing vertical lines at HP.com:

Vertical black lines or streaks

It's hard to tell from the rest of your message what other problems you're describing. I did find a troubleshooting page at HP that shows how to address general print quality problems:

Problem with quality of copies

If those links don't solve all of your problems, the Color printing issues page for the 5610 at HP has numerous other solutions:

Color printing issues

I know the name of that last link may seem misleading since you haven't described color printing issues, but the links on that page offer different general print problems and their solutions.

Good luck.

It sounds as though a cartridge is faulty. To determine which one, the easiest way is to run a page of text/block of colour through in yellow then cyan then magenta. which ever page comes out with the streaks on it will tell you which cartyridge to ditch and replace. Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
