If it is an HP printer, your inkjet nozzles may be failing. Replacement is the only answer. Look on-line for your make and model and buy generic substitutes for a better price. I would need to know the specific make and model # of the printer.

I have installed a new ink cartridge and gone through the cleaning process serval times but I can not get anything to print in black. If a document is in all black, all I get is a blank sheet. If I change...


The first thing to check would be your print utility. Make sure that it is aware that there is a black cartridge installed. If you've gone through the cleaning process, try printing a test page and see if that will print the black. If not, it is either a setting in your utility telling it not to print in black and white, or a hardware issue with your printer. I will look up some documentation for your make and model printer to see what else the problem might be. Please advise with any changes when you check the print utility.

    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.

    HP 7410 has lines through photo prints. How do we fix it?


    Two probable causes. If the lines are evenly spaced and show up just when printing photos you may just not have enough computer resources. Your computer may be low on ram or have a lot of processes running that load up the cpu. Trying printing at a lower quality and see if it goes away. Try turning off everything you are not using in the computer and then only do printing. For example doing email or or looking at web pages while printing is generally not a good idea. Some anitvirus programs will slow things enough to cause this but can be temporally turned off while printing.

    If this is a line that doesn't seem to change or goes away even a slight amount after printing a few pages then you probably need to replace the ink cartridge that is making the line color. It can also be a dirty print head so before you change cartridge run a bunch of cleaning routines. 5-10 before you try something else.

    6. Closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
      If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and press Stop/Exit.
      If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
    7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
    8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
      Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
    9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.
    10. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repeat the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
    Setting the Alignment:

    4. Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Alignment Check Sheet.
    5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the alignment needs adjustment.
    6. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Alignment Check Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1 (YES).
      If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.
    7. Press Stop/Exit.
      If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please RATE it.
