My printout has lines running through it. What should I do?

  • This phenomena is called banding and may be caused by a clogged nozzle. Print the demo page by pressing the ALT button while applying power to the printer. Check to see if white lines appear through your text. If the white lines are present, perform two cleaning cycles; (COLOR Cleaning)-Press the PAUSE button, then ALT and Print Mode, or (BLACK Cleaning)-Press the PAUSE button, then ALT and Economy/Condensed. If the cleaning cycles do not correct the problem, print the default settings (Press Economy/Condensed and power the printer on) to ensure that "Autoline Feed" is off. If the condition persists, have the printer sent in for service. The trouble shooting guide located in chapter six of the Users Manual provides additional information.
