HP Photosmart C7250 lines in photos

I'm getting lines (slightly lighter than surrounding color) in photo quality printing in my HP Photosmart C7250 printer. Running an "Alignment" operation in the Printer Utility solves the problem for one or two print jobs then it's back. Suggestions?

    BTW - Ink cartridges in this model are JUST reservoirs and have nothing to do with Printhead alignment. Their flow path can become dirty or clogged which starves one or more colors, but that will not cause evenly spaced lines over an image with changing colors. These lines appear irrespective of color being dispensed.

    I'm reasonably certain the Printhead will require replacement, but need a pointer to instructions. I am a former printer technician so know what I'm doing, just don't want to charge in where a few key instructions can save time and embarrassment.

    Things to need to clean print heads manually:
    1. Little temp Warm water
    2. alcohol
    3. cotton or ear buds
    4. tissue paper.
    Process: take out the print heads, dip the nozzles in to the warm water wait 3-5 minutes ensure that water should not touch the print head contacts and memory. take out print heads clean with tissue paper gently on the surface of the nozzles, dip cotton/ear buds in alcohol swab on nozzles, shake print heads and observe that ink is coming out?.. . install print heads in printer perform print head cleaning check nozzle test.. if satisfied .. end.. other wise repeat this process 2 - 3 times.. you will get good results.. best of luck..

Last line or two of print gets cut off


I have seen this suggested in a HP Support Forum. See if it solves your problem:

1. Go to your printers folder, right-click on (the network connected) printer that you are having the problem with and select "Properties"
2. When the properties window opens, click on the "Ports" tab.
3. Near the bottom of the Ports tab window is a check box for "Enable bidirectional support", uncheck it and click "OK"
