  3. Well I get similar lines on my printer sometimes and for me running the clean head function on the printer several times seems to do the trick.
  4. Unfortunately, all the fixes I've done including cleaning the printhead numerous times along with aligning it, installing and uninstalling the printer do no good.

    The printhead may be damaged. There are kits you can use to "clean" the printheads. The one with a clip-on syringe works pretty well.
  6. Thanks for the suggestion. The printer isnot even 4 mos. old. Is it possible to be that flaky?
  7. Sometimes print heads get clogged for no apparent reason at all, sometimes there's air bubbles in the printhead that dry out the ink, or sometimes paper dust gets adhered to the printhead.
