Hello,

 

Did you try cleaning the contacts on the carriage itself?

yes
Technician: tbwhite2040, Technician replied 8 years ago

Does it have one big line at the top and bottom or is it several lines at the top and bottom?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
one big line at the top and bottom
Technician: tbwhite2040, Technician replied 8 years ago

The only thing I have found is to check the top and bottom margin settings. If this doesn't help, here is a guide for your printer.
