Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Depending upon what program or application you are printing from, there could be something wrong with the application - esp. if it is an Adobe product. Try printing a picture from something simpler, and see if it comes out without colored bands at the edges.
If the colored bands show up with *every* application, the printer may need re-aligning of the printhead - which is usually one of the Maintenance functions provided in the printer software distributed by the manufacturer.
Have you tried doing an Alignment? if not, I recommend it at this point.
