Why does my printer print stripes?

Stripes are an indication of a defective and or clogged printhead. If you use a printer with an ink cartridge that has the gold contacts, clean it with rubbing alcohol. If it does not, run the clean printhead option in the maintenance settings.

Kodak esp-3 printer. the classic problem of clogged printhead. is there ANYTHING (notice the capitalization here) that I can do to clean it before I junk it??? please don't tell me to send the printhead...

This frustration is one of the downsides of having Epson, who almost insists on keeping ink tanks separate form printheads, unlike HP that keeps printheads build into the same housing, so you always have clean printheads.
Alas, your problem. needs some alcohol.
Seriously, get some alcohol, best would be to be a 50-50 mix with water for theoretically best results... but Vodka will do just fine. Take out the ink cartridges and pour some alcohol onto the spots where the nozzles meet the cartridges. The alcohol should gnaw through the dry paint in an hour. Also, you can apply some alcohol on a cloth and rub the bottom side of the printhead and rub the surface so the alcohol can work from top and bottom sides to get a more thorough job of cleaning up. I used to use a desoldering vacuum pump to force the process a bit and it worked just fine for HP printheads. I know that theoretically you should not touch the face of the printhead because you could "damage it" but from my experience it seems that it's just a marketing trick to get people not to restore old printheads and to buy new ones.
So, before you buy a new printhead and add a few kilos of CO2 on your carbon footprint, try the alcohol cleanup at least two times, just to be on the safe side that there's nothing else to do. Then, as a final act of desperation, get a mild nail polish remover and do the cleanup again, from both sides. That ought to do it :)

HP L7680 won't print black, cartridge is new, says it is full, Self diagnostic page says printhead is good

Try printing a Diagnostic page or clean cartridge. Looks like the printheads might be clogged due to low usage or general wear and tear, they may not be working as desired.

Horizontal pink & blue lines across color pictures that I print.

In the past when I have seen this on my old printers, it is the color cartridge. Eithe the haed is cloged or it needs to be replaced. You could try to take the color cartridge and set the print head(copper colored end) on a damp towel for a little while and see if it will release the clog. (HP uses mostly water base inks and they dry out sometimes) Then wipe the head on a dry cloth. Reinstall and try again. You should also have software for HP to prime the head and clean it. Try that and if you still have problem, replace color cartridge.

HP OfficeJet 9110 Printhead Problem

This is the official way of cleaning HP print heads. I just totally dissasembled my HP 80 print head, and found that on the inside of the print head there was a giant glob of ink that was between the inside of the print head and a metal mesh filter material. You need to remove this glob, can only be done by opening the cartridge. Good luck, tell me what happened.

HP software comes with a head cleaning option.. run that thru 3x and make sure you clean all of the printer ink cartridge using rubbing alcohol.
