Go to printer properties, maintenance, and clean the print head. Then run the alignment tool. If that doesn't work, you probably have a faulty ink cartridge.

Hello, might be that your black cartridge is starting to run out, something not dissimilar is happening on my HP deskjet 845c at the moment.

I've been having problems with my Epson 7600 large format printer, I recently took it all apart to unblock the light black tube. I reassembled the printer and everything is back to normal apart from I now...


The most common cause of horizontal banding is generally missing, deflected or clogged nozzles. To see if this is the cause you should first print a nozzle check and examine the printout with a 10x or better eye loupe for any missing or deflected nozzles. If nozzles are missing or deflected you will need to perform cleaning cycles to recover these nozzles. Once all missing nozzles are recovered try printing your document again.
If no nozzles are missing or deflected, check that you are using the correct driver settings for the type of media you're printing on. Also try printing at a higher resolution and turning high-speed (bi-directional) printing off.

The most common cause of vertical banding is over-saturation of the media, usually created by paper "rippling". To correct this effect, decrease the saturation and lower the paper suction. If vertical banding is still apparent print the image with high speed off (uni-directional). If this corrects the issue, align the print head, as described on page 5-6 of the Users Guide.

Broken lines and missing parts when printing black even with new cartridge


May be a dirty or bad print head. If you have a maintenance utility to clean the heads try that. It may take a few times. Then try printing a solid block of each color.

Black ink from new cartridge is missing lines


Try doing nozzle cleaning, hope fully this flushes the air bubbles trapped in the cartridges. Or try using this template which sometimes flushes out the inks.

2 Missing ink black streaks


Check the dev unit for missing lines. Also clean the laser glass with the supplied cleaner pad - though if the problem were caused by toner on the lens, there would be gaps in ALL colours.

Check the dev units first. You can also do a stop test whilst a full colour test image is half way through printing and see if the lines are missing off the image on the PCU as well.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

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."
