Black or color lines across the page.

[ Edited ]

HP Officejet 6500 E709n Series  - wireless printer


When I try to copy or scan the print out just has black or color lines across the page. I can print with no problems. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, printed test pages, cleaned printer glass, cleaned ink heads, performed hard reset.


Please let me know if there is something else I can do or if I need to throw the printer away and get another one.


The printer is less that 1 year old.

Re: Black or color lines across the page.

I think your scanner may have died.


Let's reset the printer - turn it off, hold the # and 6 keys while and a bit after turning it back on.  You will lose your wireless settings and will have to re-connect to your network via the front panel Wireless Network WIzard.


Now, does the scanner work better?
