White lines in print

My Lexmark X3350 is leaving horizontal white lines in the print. It prints all the material but skips about every one and a half inches leaving a white line about one eigth in wide. Have tried replacing cartridge and cleaning jets nothing seems to work. Also does this when I try to scan. I have the same problem but white lines are only about 3mm thick and occur every 5cm down the page. My printer is a Lexmark P6210.
I have done all the required maintenance functions but no luck.
Any help appreciated.

Does the printer have replaceable printing heads, or are they integral to the ink cartridge. If so they may need replacing or calibration. Another issue may be electronic contacts, check inside the printer and on the cartridges for any dirt or debris on the (usually copper colour) contacts on either end.

Also, if possible try the printer on an alternate computer to ensure it is not a problem with your software.

Kind regards, ACD

Hi, since you've already try some basic trouble shooting to your printer such as head cleaning & ink cartridge replacement. There's a big possibility that the nozzle on that printer might be mis-aligned or clog by dried inks & contaminants. The possible solution that we can provide to you (asside from head cleaning) is printhead alignment. If issue still present after doing that solution, your printer may require service.

My prints come out with white (no ink) horizontal lines 1/16" apart from top to bottom


A firmware update for your model addresses print quality issues. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro900 Series Firmware Update.
After successfully updating your printer, do a deep clean function. From the printer touchscreen panel, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. This will help clean the nozzles from possible clogs and dirt.
Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

When printing on x3350 with a new cartridge... get lines that are double and some with thick black ink on some letters.


Try to reseat the cartridges into the printer. If problem continues, then maybe the cartridge nozzles need cleaning. Follow the simple steps below on how to clean the cartridge nozzles on the Lexmark X3350:
  1. Go to Start, Programs (Windows XP: All Programs) > Lexmark 3300 Series > Lexmark Solution Center.
  2. Click the Maintenance tab.
  3. Click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
  4. Click Print. A cleaning page prints, forcing ink through the clogged nozzles to clean them.
  5. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

The print-head is like a paint-brush -- brush sideways across a white-coloured wall, and you should get a wide "band" of paint. If only half of the paint-brush has paint on it, then only half of that "band" on the wall will get painted, leaving a horizontal strip of white showing through.

So, launch the Canon software that is installed on your computer, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog those ink-jets that are _NOT_ shooting the ink onto the paper.

This may be a cartridge misalignment issue. First try printing with the settings changed to black and white print only. If this does not work then print in fast or draft mode (this should print in a single pass with less ink. Normal or best quality is usually done by passing the cartridges over the line twice.
Run the cartridge alignment test and see if it can be correctly aligned.
It could also be that the belt that moves the cartridge holder is loose and so two passes of the print head are misaligned. This may not be repairable (at least not economically).

The sentences on the printed page have white lines running horizontally through them. What do I do to correct the problem?


Some of the ink-jets are not spraying ink where they should, i.e., clogged.

Click the Windows key.
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Click with the 2nd (right?) mouse-button on the icon for the Lexmark.
Click Properties
Click Advanced
There should be a "tools" that includes a program to "clean" the ink-jets. Run it, until the print-quality improves.

Printing cartridges are getting jammed.


Sounds like the "encoder strip" may be missing or broken. There is a little strip of plastic that runs along the length of the printer between the pulleys that move the printhead. It has lots of tiny little vertical lines on it. If this is missing, the print head does not know where it is on the page and slides wildly back and forth.
You might be able to reattach it if it is not broken.
If not, go buy an X3550 - it is a newer model that can use the same cartridges as the X3350.

Printer prints white thick blank lines


1- black lines are from the drum: it has burnt out on that particular spot and rotates

2- the white horizontal gap space if it is not you skipping space is also from the drum

3-the white Vertical is most likely from the developper (unit that has the toner and is against the drum, look at the roller it should be solid black, maybe there is something on it : hair paper etc....

White lines appearing on print

Clean the print nozzles as follows:
  1. Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
  2. Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).
  3. Check the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. The diagonal lines should be continuously solid from left to right, with no gaps.
  4. If there are gaps at the top that diminish at the bottom, run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times. If the gaps are gone, the Clean Print Nozzle page has probably resolved the problem.
  5. If the gaps still exist, you should unblock ("wick") the cartridges. See How to Unblock/Wick the Cartridge Nozzles.
    For additional help, refer to the following article: How to Clean the Maintenance Station .
