Hi Sandra,

There are usually a few possible causes of a line on a laser print of
the nature you mention.

One is a scratch on the drum surface. This can be caused by a piece of
grit getting into the wrong place, from paper or elsewhere. Scratched
drums tend to hold toner in that location which is then transferred to
the paper and fused to it.

The other cause is if the drum wiper black has become damaged (again can
be caused by a piece of grit). In this case, the wiper black which is
supposed to clean excess untransferred toner to a waste chamber in the
cartridge, has a slight damage in it, and the toner is moved and
redeposited on the drum where this gap is. The wiper blade is usually
made of a silicone like rubber with a sharply cut edge. On rare
occasions a piece of dirt can lodge on this wiper and temporarily deform
the blade, again allowing toner to get under it and redeposited on the drum.

If the drum and wiper is accessible, you can sometime very gently run a
business card under the blade and gently slide it down the drum to clean
any grit or paper dust that might be deforming the blade. However, on
HP cartridges most of this stuff is internal and not easy to access
without taking the cartridge apart.

If the cartridge was purchased new and is an HP brand, they may allow
you to do an exchange, since they use recycled and reused parts even in
their newly boxed cartridges. Also, if it is from a refiller which
guarantees the quality of the refill, you may be able to get a
replacement. If you had the cartridge refilled yourself using your own
cartridge, you may have less options.

Good Luck,

kc

How do i mix the colours on my stylus sx115 as i have run out of black but have the other 3 colours remaining?


Conserving Black Ink When the Cartridge Is Low (For Windows Only) The window below appears when black ink runs low and there is more color ink than black ink. It appears only when plain papers is selected as the paper type, and Text is selected as the Quality Option.


c497x0230h.gif
The window gives you the option to either continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black. Click the Yes button to use a mixture of color inks to create black. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job. Click the No button to continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job, and again have the option to conserve black ink. Click Disable this feature to continue using the remaining black ink.

How do I fix Vertical lines on print out. I do not have solid colour when I print in colour instead I have lines. I have cleaned the print head, tried to align print head numerous times and replaced black...


Open "properties", on the bottom you will see "printing preferences". Try changing the print quality to "high" or adjust the color intensity manually- there are 2 options, "auto" and "manual". Check the "manual" and adjust it.

Vertical and horizontal lines when printing photos - HP Photosmar


Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.

Yellow ink contaminated


Yes, do you refil your own inks. Colour contamination occurs primarily when users overfill ink holes with any colour, then this colour runs into others and voila, a yukky mess. If cartridges are fairly new, heres the quick easy fix. Remove cartridges that are causing the problem, in your case all! Using a proper cleaning solution (you can get this free in refill kits or buy it sepeartely, i got mine from supermarket, works well) and cotton buds, thoroughly clean down where the cartridges sit. There will be both fresh ink and dried ink, so you will have to repeat over and over until all or most colour is gone from cotton buds. Now, let it dry and air, leaving printer cover open. You now have to bleed the black ink as it sounds like it is overfull. This can happen in refilled cartridges, but even store bought ones can have faults. Sit the black cartridge on wet paper towel, on a clean icecream lid or marg lid, even a plate will do, just one that you don't mind ink on by accident. Let it sit a minute or so, now lift it up, and wipe it gently with a wipe (i use unscented baby wipes-huggies, do not laugh, they work well!) press it firmly on a folded tissue, and it should leave a nice clean neat black vertical little line. If it doeas, place it back in its place in printer. Leave open for now. The colour cartridge should need cleaning too, by doing the same, each time you lift it off wet paper towel, wipe it clean, and press it on a tissue to see clean neat 3 colour line. If not, bleed again until it does. When it does place it back in printer and reset ink levels once cover is shut. Try printing now.
