There are few factors responsible
Check the ink levels. Low ink level may cause the horizontal line
If your printer is running out of ink, simply replace or refill your ink cartridges following the manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations.
Make sure the paper type selected matches the paper you are actually using. Printing photos and the use of photo paper is especially affected by incorrect settings.
Check the Print Quality. Settings usually offer a choice between Draft, Normal and Best. Select the highest quality possible.
Select “Color” printing even if you are printing a document that is only in black and white.
Turning off high speed printing mode often eliminates unwanted lines.
Run your printer through a cycle of test, clean, and align .
If the problem still persists then go ahead and run your computer’s troubleshooting program for your printer. If you are a Windows user then you can reach this through the Control Panel, and if Mac user then go through System Preferences.
If the printer is working and you’ve tried everything else, you may just need to replace the cartridge
If the horizontal lines on your printouts are black or in color and are not simply streaks where ink is missing, a clogged or dirty print head is a likely culprit. There are several methods of cleaning print heads, depending on the make and model of the printer
