    Thanks for your comments. As a result I have now identified that this problem occurs in every other line of typed text notepad as well. It doesn't occur when printing pages off the web.
    The printer is HP Photosmart C3180 and I use Vista.

First of all what is your printer model and manufacturer? What is your computer's operating system? What program/application are you using when printing?
If you are using windows xp or any Microsoft windows operating system, try to print from notepad to check if this happens as well from a generic windows application.

Click Start > Run > type in the box notepad then press ok

from there type a couple of lines about 10 - 15
example:
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test
test

and check if the issue occurs. If it occurred as well in notepad then it is just a format setting in your application.

Hello,
one idea is that you rouined printhead with tap water and second idea is to buy new print head or printer.
Note: If you want to replace ink head, be sure to replace purge unit and ink absorber also.

Hp4000n sporadic line of text will have ink missing in single line of text, causing distorted lettering. No pattern to it; random


90% or better chance the problem is in the toner cartridge. I would swap it out with another cartridge and see if the problem goes away. I am sure it will. The only other possibility would be a fusing unit/drive problem but that would only tend to cause blur lines or missing lines that would be on the bottom 1/2 of the page only. It would not affect the top half.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Bottom of line missing


First try and go to page setup under file and set your bottom and top margins to .25. is every bottom half line faded? If so then yes you might need a new ink cartridge.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.


I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!

I have blank lines through my printouts


Run the cleaning cycle. If that doesn't work, try to use an alcohol soaked swab on the print head. Some of the jets are clogged.
