    HP 725 Series OfficeJet All-In-One

    Hey all!

    Got a question to ask that could save me some money. Here goes.

    I have an HP 725 series officejet all-in-one (printer, copier, fax & scanner). It is about 2 years old now. I changed out my black and color but I am still getting a black line in the center of all printed out words on a document and in some cases slightly smudged. I thought the black cartridge was defective so I took it back to the supplier and they gave me a new one. When I put the new black cartridge in and printed I'm still gettting the same issue as stated above. The color prints out fine. I don't get it.

    Is there some kind of low end maintenace that I can accomplish to fix this problem on my end without having to take it into a repair shop? I tried the software that cleans the heads but to no avail. I'm pretty capable and repairing computer related equipment so any advice would help to correct this printing issue.

    Thanks!

    Yes, as a matter of fact but I'm not that familure with that machine...

    You do have a proggie within your HP software that should help clean the heads on your cartriges...even if they are new it couldn't hurt...

    Wipe the rollers with a damp cloth to get all the dust and print residue off.

    You may have a transparent plastic ribbon the pulls the print heads across your paper. Take a damp cloth and wipe it down.

    One other thing is to get into HP's fourm and ask your question...or at least snoop through it. Others may be having the same problem.

    Oh yeah, look for a pdf document on that series. I found one for a HP printer I was having problems with once. The cleaning took care of it.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.
