Partial Print
by: Dick

Haven't used my CP710 for about a year now and have disvovered two problems.

Just tried printing some photos only to discover that the bottom 1" of each photo isn't being printed (ragged line betweeen the part that prints and that which doesn't).

Now, on some of the prints, there's also an angular line that's appearing out of nowhere.

Have tried a new cartridge and new paper. Same deal.

Is it possible that part of the thermal device that fuses the ink to the paper is already kaput?
