Hp Officejet 6500 Vertical Line Problem

When i scan a document it ends up with a vertical line running down the center of the page. The same thing happens if i copy and use the document feeder. If i just put the document on the glass there is no line. Any idea what may be causing the problem? I have cleaned the "rollers", but still have the problem. If it were a hardware problem, wouldn't the line show up even when i put the document on the glass?

Blue Vertical Line Across A Lcd

I have a buddies laptop and the screen has a vertical blue line in it that won't go away. I'm pretty sure its not software related. Its there as soon as the screen turns on . It has onboard graphics. It shares the system memory. Any idea what it might be and what i might have to replace on it? When it comes to hardware i'm somewhat weak. Any idea how i can even start to trouble shoot this? As its onboard graphics i can't even check the vid card.

Laptop Monitor - Permanent Vertical Green Line

The monitor on my dell latitude d505 is currently displaying a vertical green line from the top to the bottom of the screen, about 1/3 of a screen width from the right hand side. This line fades in during the dell splash screen and persists whether i boot into linux or windows. I'm assuming this is a hardware problem, but does anyone have any definitive advice on what may cause this?

Hp Officejet 6500 Sound Issue

I have a hp officejet 6500 wireless all in one printer, there is a cheaper version, and them my wireless version that has wireless and also has rgb and b cartridges instead of all the colors in one. Basically my hp j6500 printer used to make a little badink sound after completing the printing job that was currently going. When it would finish i'd get the chime, and know it was done. But now it no longer makes this sound. I'm not sure if that was the actual reason for the sound, but it always did it after finishing a job. And now it doesn't. If anyone knows anything regarding this aspect of a printer, or a hp printer i'd love any help in figuring out a way to get it to do it again.

How To Uninstall Hp Officejet 6500 Printer ?

How can i uninstall hp officejet 6500 e709n series all-in-one? I bought this all-in-one printer approximately 3/3/10. We bought it because we need a fax machine. We were never able to connect the fax. We had to have hp's "special" 2-wire" cable. I asked hp where i could buy this cable, and they could never figure out what we were asking. Our questions were basic easy. We got sick of it, and returned the printer today. I didn't uninstall the software prior to returning this product-i did not know if the store would take this product back yet. Now that i no longer have their software cd, i cannot uninstall all hp software from my computer. Windows uninstall program cannot uninstall the software. Does anyone know how i can get this software off of my computer?

Canon Pixma Mx860 Or Hp Officejet 6500 ?

Which multifunction printer is better canon pixma mx860 or hp officejet 6500?

Answer:- i'm not sure how you define better. They are both good printers. My definition of better is a better warranty and cheaper ink. In my opinion, the best deal in a photo printer is the epson artisan 800 direct from for $130 after $170 instant rebate. It's a wireless copier/scanner/fax/photo printer with 6 individual ink cartridges for high photo quality. The best warranty in the industry. For two years, epson will fedex a replacement and pick up the old one should you need it. If that's beyond your budget, the next best deal is the nx415 at officemax for $50. It's a copier/scanner/printer with 4 ink cartridges. It's not wireless and the warranty is one year. If you sign up for maxperks, you get back a $20 visa card so it's like paying $30 for the printer.

Hp Officejet 6500 Printer Doesn't Print From Internet

My hp officejet 6500 printer doesn't print from the internet. I purchased a hp printer officejet 6500 2 mo ago, and it worked for about 3 weeks. It copies ok but it will not print from online or wordpad, etc. I returned it and replaced it with another one, and it doesn't work either. I have spent numerous hours with the geeks in india who work for hp, but they can't help me either. The installation cd that came with it doesn't work either. The geeks said it probably needs a new driver! It will not install that either.

Dual Vertical Monitors

I just upgraded from dual 19" 1280 x 1024 to dual 22" 1050 x 1680 (vertical). Before i turned them 90 degrees, everything ran very smoothly on my 8800gt. As soon as i put them in portrait mode, things didn't work out so well. When watching videos, there are obvious scan lines and when scrolling down web pages quickly, it can't load the information fast enough. My refresh rate is stuck at 60hz, though i am honestly not all that sure of if that would have any effect. It seems i might need a new video card, but was also thinking there might be a way to rotate the screen 90 degrees by some other means that the gpu might be able to handle better. Since that is probably not an option, i was wondering what would be a good upgrade from an 8800gt that would definitely be able to hand my monitor set up. Specs:

Windows xp pro
Asus p5q pro
E8400 @3. 6ghz
4gb ddr2800 ram

Horizontal And Vertical Lines On Screen

The other day out of nowhere my screen starts going nuts. It has a bunch of horizontal and vertical lines on the screen and they kind of move when the mouse is over them. When i open a new window, for example an aim window or notepad, parts of the program will display fine, without any lines, and other parts will continue the line pattern on the screen. When my computer starts up, it has weird gray images that almost look like japanese letters on the windows xp splash screen. I checked a different monitor and the picture is still weird, so it isn't monitor, so im guessing its video card. ? Anyone ever heard of a problem like this?

Red Vertical Lines On Monitor

How can i find out whats wrong with my dell monitor? My dell 17' inch flat screen monitor has red vertical lines in the middle of my screen. I'm wondering if its a bad cable connection problem. After i boot-up the system up its not there, but within a few minutes the red lines appear. I've tried it with my other systems and the same thing happens. I purchases the monitor directly from dell in 2006w my dell dimension e310 system.could it be that the monitor is wore out, or could it be just a bad cable connection? The cable i have attached to the monitor came with the monitor. If i purchase another one of the same kind would that clear out the red lines on the monitor? Need answer asap before i throw this monitor away & purchase another one those red lines are driving me nuts!

Also which monitor would you recommend for a quad system windows 7?

Vertical Stripe When Use Printer As Copier

Why do i get a dark vertical stripe when i use my printer as a "copier, " but not as a "printer?"?

Answer:- you most likely have something blocking the scanner from seeing the paper that's scanned. You didn't say what make and model it is, so can't be very specific about what to look for, but if your printer/scanner pulls the paper in to scan it in a continuous motion, you should open up the scanner and look for anything that shouldn't be there around the scanner window glass or feed area just above it. It could be paper, plastic, tape, junk of some kind etc. Try cleaning the glass with some alcohol on a cloth or paper towel. If you have a flat bed scanner, where you place the paper on the glass then close the lid, there could be something wrong on, or under, the glass, or more than likely something on the scanner bar that moves from end to end that is blocking the light or sensor or the light in that area is out. If you can't find the problem, or figure out how to fix it, you can have it checked out by a tech to see if they can give an estimate, but it may not be worth it depending on what you have, and may be cheaper to buy a new one if you want the scan capability without the line.
