We bought and successfully installed an HP Envy 4500 all-in-one printer a few months. It printed fine until today. Now it is dropping every third line of black type. We've changed the ink cartridge, cleaned the printhead, cleaned the ink smear, but the problem persists. We're at a loss. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
