Sounds like one or more of your printheads is worn out. They are designed to be user replaceable, and wear out after a certain amount of usage.

Black is obvious, but if the lines are purplish, your yellow head is bad. If they're greenish, your magenta head is bad. If they're reddish, your cyan head is bad.

Vertical lines are very unusual. Can you scan a printout and post it somewhere that we can look at it?

Welcome to Fixya

Hi. Since you already tried and test all major troubleshooting that should fixed the problem, and yet still geting same result. I that suggest that you need replace the Printhead. In most cases, cleaning the printhead by soaking it to a warm water for about 1 1/2 hour would clear/break the solid debris that is clogging the printhead. Try that first before getting a new printhead.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How do I print wirelessly from my Samsung Note 3 to my HP printer?

Go to the Google Market and download an apps called HP All-in-One Remote and install it in your Samsung Note 3.
Then while your Note 3 and HP Officejet were in the same wi-fi network, your Note 3 should be able to detect the HP printer. Then you could select which documents to print and whether B/W or color.

    Good old HP.

    Shop around online for cheap suppliers but make sure you only buy HP A909 Cartridges.

    Why is my Zebra printer printing every other label?

    The labels you are printing have an extra line feed (a blank line) after the last printed line. Remove them.

    Remove any "FormFeed" from the label run, if you are doing a "merge".

    Line 2 Address
    Line 3 Address2
    Line 4 City St Zip
    Line 5 <Blank>
