HP 5740 Printer skips top half of several lines

When I print out an E-mail, my HP Deskjet 5740, skips the top half of several lines in my letter. I went into printer tools, and cleaned it as instructed, it made no difference.

Try a letter with brown letters to see if it is the black ink cartridge Refilled cartridges do that from time to time

The top half of letters on certain lines of print are offset by about half a letter space from the bottm half of the letters. Usually but not always the same lines. help please


This usually indicates a need for a new print cartridge or the printer head is dirty. You can run the automatic printer cleaning utilities. Note: do them several times.
Also, if you are a little handy, use Qtips and rubbing alcohol and clean the print head.

HP Deskjet 5740 I have not used my printer in some time and both cartridges are half full. It printed with the black but came out with gaps in the printing so i took the cartridge out and put it back...


it is better to change the black cartige becaue there is the jam of the ink in black cartidge. or pick out the black cartidge and clean with soft paper in the place from where color is pour. then reinstall the cartidge. i hope it will ok. otherwise, change the cartidge.
