    Instead of printing solid blocks of colour, the printer prints vertical lines of colour and it appears blurry and out of focus, even though the photo itself is perfectly in focus.

Scratches on card when printing


Hello. There is a difference between horizontal and vertical lines. Horizontal lines means you might have burned your headset. If the lines go all the way horizontally and the line has the same thikness, you should replace the headset.
If its irregular lines you probably have one of the following problems:
a) Too much temperature in your printer driver(Go to printer settings and play with the darkness setting until you reach a good printing)
b) You are printing grey colors, which are always a problem with Datacards
c) Have a look at your supplies, maybe you are buying a not so-standard brand and the cards have some polution

Printing with a HP5500dtn and I'm getting a white horizontal line towards the top of my paper when printing.


Check the ETB belt for a horizontal scar.
Next check your toner cartridges. One of the drums may have a scar.
Under DIAGNOSTICS Menu, run PQ Troubleshooting.
See if any of the colors give you the white line.

Because you said that only one line occurs, I'm inclined to go with the ETB belt.
Check it good for the horizontal line.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Horizontal lines (red) on first 1 - 2 pages of initial print-out


Do you refill ink tank? Print blank pages. Is there horizontal lines appear? It might be caused bay ink leakage. Check respiratory hole at ink tank and rubber seal at bottom of ink tank. Print blank pages until no horizontal lines and try to use new ink tank.
