Printer problem hp deskjet 656c

  waterbuffalo 20:26 04 Dec 07

My hp DeskJet 656c has developed a fault. It fails to print properly producing regular horizontal lines with partially missing text or picture 1mm deep at 5mm intervals.
I've tried following the HP toolbox instructions for cleaning the head and cleaning the contacts but this has not helped. A new cartridge makes no difference. (It’s a substitute cartridge - not one of HPs).
Any suggestions. Is it time to get a new printer?

Don't give up :) We have a 610C which are still going strong but I do always get original carts, out of date maybe but they work fine. Does the HP site offer any solutions? click here
