I have always had great prints from this printer, which is only about 1 year old. Suddenly, the last 2 prints have a feint line, about 1/10 inthick, about 1 inch from the end of the print.

Any help on how to sort this would be appreciated.:O

if the line runs in the same direction as the paper moves through the printer (parallel with the long side) it is probably a 'scratch' from a sticking 'star' wheel

the rubber drive wheelsaare under the paper and a 'star shaped' follower rides the printed surface with ever so slight pressure leaving invisible marks in the print, however if the wheel 'sticks' (usually from a tiny bit of paper jammed) it will leave a tell-tale scratch/line

good luck clearing/freeing the wheel as they are virtually inaccessable w/o a major disassembly
