Prints partial lines 4 times.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My printer keeps printing partial lines 4 times.  And then another partial lines 4 times, etc, etc.


I have gone through all the steps that HP is giving.  I have downloaded drivers.  I have done at least 10 Printhead Alignments (all failed).  


Was working fine until a couple days ago.  Said the printhead could not be located, or something along those lines.


Here is what it printed out when I did the printhead cleaning.



What is happening with my printer?

@TheWoos68, Welcome to HP Support Community!


If you have already performed the steps from the document HP Officejet Pro 8600 Printers - Fixing Poor Print Quality 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!
