    Hi

    I suspect this might be a fairly common problem. Whenever I print there also seems to be a block of about 5 fine lines printed over the text for about ever new line of text. Now I recently bought a new (high capacity) cartridge which costs a fortune, so I'm not too keen to buy another if it is the printer (about 6 years old) which is the problem.

    Has anyone else had the same sort of problem?

    Try cleaning the print heads, this is the normal solution to this problem.

    Also check the paper path and clean that too, my old HP always seemed to leave some ink somewhere that eventually was picked up by the paper.
