missing lines of print

By dinehart ·
I am using and HP all-in-one and have had it for a couple of years. Recently when printing a document us Word, Wordperfect or notepad about every 15th line the top 1/5 of the line of print is missing. It seems to be a HP software problem but I have downloaded the lastest updates. Anyone have any answers?

Is this a laser or ink jet printer?
What model is it?

If it's a laser printer, according to HP:
"A repetitive pattern of printing defects, such as an identical smudge every 2 inches may indicate a defective fusing roller. Try cleaning it according to your hardware vendor's instructions. If that does not work, you may need to replace the fusing roller assembly."

I'll do some research.
We have several in our lab.

solved my own problem. It was a defective ink cartridge. I was so intent on solving a software problem I forgot about the simplest piece of hardware on the printer.
Thanks for your interest.

Funny how it often ends up being the obvious, eh? :)
