Q:
What should I do if my printout has lines running through it?
A:
If you notice white or dark lines in your prints (also called banding), try these solutions before you reprint:

  • Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.
  • Make sure the paper type setting matches the type of paper you loaded.
  • Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper correctly for your product.
  • Turn off any high speed settings in your product software.
  • Align the print head.
  • You may need to replace the ink cartridge.
