When printing the letters have horizontal lines across the page

You didn't specify what kind of printer you have but I am guessing it is an InkJet? You have a clogged print head. You can try taking it out and soaking it on a wet paper towel for an hour and then putting it back in. Be sure not to rub it dry but pat it instead. Once you have re-installed the print head you should run at least 1 if not 2 cleanings to pull clean ink back into the head. If the print head is built into the cartridge, then disregard the above method and simply replace it (although the above method will work on them as well).

If the above method fails to work you need to look at replacing your print head.

Printer is skipping across lines so they're coming out with middle of letters missing

If it's an inkjet clean or change the printhead. If it's a laser printer, replace the drum.

#5 black ink cartridge skips through the middle occasionally

Replacing the print head
The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:

  • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.
  • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.
  • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.
  • A print head error is indicated on the unit.
  • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.
I hope it helps!!!

Double striking letters in middle of sentence

This was one of the BEST All-In-One printer HP had ever made
Its a real fortune to still have it.

Verification of color out – happens only after keeping the unit idle for quite some time.
1. Are the cartridges out of ink – check ink levels
2. check self-test report patterns (missing lines or streaked bars)
3. Look for missing colors or ink smears.
4. Was this issue showing up because of any one single color?
5. Was it stored in a warm environment (Stored under direct sunlight?)
6. Manual Cleaning & Cleaning from Driver
