horizontal stripes in black ink for deskjet

HP Recommended
deskjet 8600
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I am getting horizontal stripes in my deskjet 8600 printer.  Bands of about 1/4" wide where the black doesn't print at all.  I get 9 or 10 blank horizontal stripes  (black ink only) in a page.

@SailorKane, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I’m here to help.

 

I understand the printouts have black horizontal lines. Due to the age of the printer, support options are limited.

 

Kindly perform the steps mentioned in this document - Color, Black Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues

 

If the issue persists, you may try replacing the ink cartridges. You may visit Hp Store to order compatible ink cartridges or buy them from a local store nearby.

If the issue persists with the replacement ink cartridges as well, I'm afraid the printer has gone bad. I suggest you upgrade the printer. You may visit Hp Store to check the available printers.

 

Keep me posted for any other assistance.
