My printer leaves small lines almost under-lines here and there in the text.  In all print jobs and programs.  I've tried aligning and auto cleaning.

This normally isn't a print cartridge issue, and replacing the print cartridge won't solve anything!

Rather this is a maintenance issue with the printer. It needs a periodic cleaning as described in the following document called:

How to clean your printer to prevent black ink streaks

You can get the document from the following URL:

http://www.hp.com/cposupport/printers/support_doc/dj6ser_trklst.html

You'll need to download the document and look at it through Adobe Acrobat Reader. These instructions have worked on several streaky HP printers I've encountered. I suspect they'll work for you too. Good luck.

Are you using an IEEE1284 cable ?

IS the printer directly attached or is it running through a pass through device such as a zip drive or other device?

What version of windows are u running ?

How much ram do you have ?

Processor speed ?

Usually this indicates the ink cartridge is shot; new one needed.

Try using an IEEE1284 cable... you may not be getting full di-directional support


This is happening in more then one program correct and they are windows based programs ?


Have you tried aligning the ink cartridg as of yet ?

I've had it happen with "new" ink cartridges, sometimes their shelf-life leaves something to be desired;  if you can get another, you can probably get a refund for this one.  Use Q-tips and cold distilled water to clean up around the jets -- probably won't help.

i'm going to try a new cartridge, i'm not going to best buys for cartridges again if that's the problem.

Hoo--boy -- "best buys" -- Yeah, I know, $27.00 for a black inkpak is steep; but in the long run you're better off staying with the HP's.

Thanks, great advice!  I looked for an HP site but the one I got was useless.
