Solved!

HP 5745 Printer Some lines only print half

HP 5745 OFFICEJET
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

First time changing the ink cartrigages. Got 'Alignment unsuccessful' msg 3x.

Did the Hard Reset procedure. No prompt to run alignment. Sample print came out with some lines only printing half, so I went to 'Settings' on the printer to do the alignment. No change.

Help please and thank you!

Yes, I am using genuine, brand new HP ink cartridges and clean white, unused printer paper. Although the screen said the Alignment was ok (passed or acceptable), I was still getting the half line printout in one or 2 lines. Cleaning the cartridges did the trick - solved!

 

Thank you very much for your help!

@whitesentry, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

If you have already performed the steps from the document Black or Color Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues and the issue persists, it could be a hardware failure.

 

Please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.

 

Hope this helps!
