This one's weird. A document won't print every other pass of the print
head (left to right or the other way around, I don't know).

HOWEVER . . .

As long as I park any color at all in the vertical stretch of paper,
the black text will print fine (no blank passes).

So if I have a full page of text and the top half has a thin vertical
blue line to one side (for example), the top half will be readable and
the bottom half will be banded with blank passes of the head.

This was a tough one to google for, too. :-/

Any ideas?

If you perform a Nozzle Test Pattern, are all grids complete?
Are the boxes below the grids complete?
