I was showing off last night while trying to print out some nice letterhead that I made. I printed the envelope with no problem, but when I printed out the full 8 1/2″x11″ piece of paper, I got this annoying vertical black line on the right side of the paper.
It seems to be a clear, solid black line, not some fuzzy thing that is caused by physical damage to the toner cartridge. I searched Google for, “laserjet 1018 problem black lines” and came across this good thread about “HP LASERJET 1020 MICROSOFT 64 bit and 32 bit DRIVERS.”
Some other people seem to be having the same problem. I can print from Microsoft Word just fine, but when I add an image, such as a .jpg or a .gif, that’s when I get the line.
People on the thread solved this issue by installing the beta driver. I may do this, but I am hesitant, since the driver is a bit bulky at around 58MB.
Anyone else having the same issue?
