    I hope this is the right forum...

    I have recently noticed vertical stripes in my printed pictures. Not really bad , but noticeable. I have a lexmark x1150 all-in one.
    I just printed out a picture of my kids and there are about 1cm stripes- 1just slightly darker & 1 slightly lighter than it should be- all across the page.

    Any ideas? Thanks!!!

    Lisaa,

    Try cleaning the print heads:
    Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
    Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).

    Also try a different type of paper, sometimes the combination of a particular ink and paper can cause this effect.

    Regards,
    Roger
