Lines in PrintingWhite lines cannot be caused by white ink, no inkjet printer uses white ink, what you are seeing is the paper showing where ink was suppossed to be, white lines in text is a first sign indicator of low or no ink in cartridges. (There may be ink partially blocking the nozzles/pen see the maintainence pages.) Lines in printing photo's has been around since Nov. 1999, could be a low ink indicator, or just another wtv thing they can't/won't fix.
Black lines indicate cleaning is needed! There is excessive ink around nozzles, bottom of cartridge.....see the maintainence pages, and for 697C users the help folder example.
