Print will only print half a page
There were times were I would need to print the same image/document twice because the 1st time it would only print a half or a third of what it is suppose to print. I searched around for what could be the problem trying various tweaks but none helped. Funny thing was one set of prints could work just find only to have the problem again sometime afterwards. So it could be intermittent or it could happen right away.
I finally decided to look at the print cartridges themselves to see if there was any obvious. Turns out the flex tape area of the cartridge (thin sheet of gold looking metal on the back of the cartridge that makes contact with the pins on the printer) had some sort of stick film on it. I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and the printer works fine again.
Just a tip to look at the contact area of the print cartridge if you experience something similar yourself. Later...
