This could be due to the print-head clogging up, or your ink cartridges being low.
First, I would suggest cleaning the printhead.

Setup menu -> Tools -> Clean Cartridges

Then try it once again. If this doesn't work, try cleaning the print head manually, as per this guide.

If the problem persists, buy new cartridges.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Printing black horizontal lines below text/on top of pictures


Check the waste recepticle under where the ink cartridges rest in the home position. Over time, ink sprayed into this cup during cleaning cycles builds up to form a small mountain of congealed ink. If this gets too high, it makes contact with the printhead and drags ink across all your prints. If there is a ***** of ink present, scoop it out with a spoon or a popsicle stick.

Dont get it on you, its messy...

Vertical and horizontal lines when printing photos - HP Photosmar


Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.
