It seems that this is a hardware issue as there is no scanning in the middle of the document and as it fails to process or generate. Please try to uninstall and reinstall the driver software after removing the printer before we can proceed to estimate.-- Check for dirt or clogging within the scanning area.
I think the machine has run out of warranty but it will be good to call teh support site of HP and clarify and concur this fault before you can estimate and proceed.

Why is my printer not printing right


This sounds like the chip on the ink cartrige, try cleaning the chip or replacing the red magenta ink. How a printer works, information from the Dynamic Link Libary is sent to the printer driver, this information is where to print on the paper and what colour to print, ie turning the ink jets on and off, the depth of colour comes from each ink by mixing the inks from the information in the photo or text. All ink problems are usually from ink faults, miss printing comes from driver information. Phill

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Printer keeps showing Office Jet 8500 Wireless


The printer wants to align the print cartridge, if you print out the alignment sheet, and then following instruction, place on scanner and scan it in etc, and it fails to callibrate, I have found it is because some of the information on the calibration page is not being printed correctly so therefore machine cant calibrate the print heads from it, this is normally due to poor quality cartridges or failing/empty print cartridge or cartridges, these use two I think, and I bet one of the colours from the colour isn't printing properly, replace colour cart if blacks look good. Below is a link to HP so you can see what a alignment page needs to look like to pass calibration, compare yours and you may find a colour is dodgy on it.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have


nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

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.
