Why is my HP printer printing with lines?
Introduction. HP Photosmart printers may print images with white lines or single color streaks. This issue can be caused by ink that has dried in the ink nozzles or by debris that is blocking the ink nozzles. Clean the ink cartridges with the ink cartridge cleaning utility in the HP Printer Toolbox.
How do you get rid of copier lines?
Use a soft cloth moistened with water, nonabrasive glass cleaner, or lens cleaner. When finished, dry the glass with a soft, dry cloth to prevent spotting. Start off by cleaning the glass on the copier. But you’re not done yet.
Why is my printer printing with streaks?
Streaking is usually caused by a worn out drum unit or spent toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge and rock it back and forth a few times over a trashcan to evenly redistribute the toner powder. Some toner powder may emit from the cartridge as you do this. Reinstall the toner cartridge and run a test print.

What is ADF HP printer?
ADF is so ubiquitous in fax machines that some fax machine owners use the machine as a scanner, faxing multi-page documents to themselves. A duplexing automatic document feeder or DADF scans both sides in one pass.
Why does my HP scanner have lines?
HP has determined that 99% of all lines and streaks on copies made by feeding the original documents through the ADF are caused by debris on the ADF glass. Debris can include dust, paper or toner dust, residue from sticky note adhesive, correction fluid or tape, ink, fingerprints, and more.
How do I fix the skip lines on my HP printer?
Do not clean the ink nozzles on the bottom of the cartridge. Allow the contacts to dry for about 10 minutes. Clean the contacts in the carriage inside the printer. Either let the carriage contacts sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
What causes lines on copies?
Vertical lines on copies, sent faxes, or scanned documents are typically caused by dirt, ink, corrective fluid, or other debris stuck on the ADF scanner glass. Cleaning the ADF scanner glass properly should resolve this issue.
Why are there lines on my copies?
Streaks happen not from dust on the larger glass scanning surface, but on the smaller scanner that reads your documents as they are fed into the copier. When dust gets on the thin slit of glass that scans copies as your original document slides through, a single dust particle can cause a huge line streak.
