Canon MP970 Streaks!

Hello

I just purchased a Canon mp 970 and on my color photos you can see streaks or lines going across the whole page. This is not noticeable in black documents, mainly just full color pieces.

I have done all the cleaning and head alignment that is offered. I have replaced two low cartridge and still have the same problem.

Any Suggestions????

    I have the same problem.  Streaks run through all photos I print from my digital camera.  Document printing come out fine.

    I've had my Canon MP970 and I'm disappointed in the pictures it prints. The pictures have been downloaded from my camera to my computer and I try to print them and they have lines through them. Even images I print from website come out with lines through them. I'm beginning to think I made a mistake with this purchase & wish I had my old HP back.

The colered pictures may be illegal to print like school pictures if you scan and then print them they will have a line threw them.

Streaks in darker colors HELP.....


This can be caused by an incorrect paper type set for the printer. Go into the printer menu and select "Quality & Media" change the setting to the correct type of paper you are using. If this is not the issue you could use the maintenance menu for the printer e.g. clean the printer nozzles, paper alignment etc, Also see if there are driver or software updates from Canon's website for your printer.

Streaking


Hi there it will be either the drum unit for the color streaks you are getting or the fuser unit. Check the drum units for the streaks on them also check the fuser but the clue is when you have the streaks in different places. Most likely to be the drum units. You will need to replace.

Thanks J

My Canon i960 printer is printing red streaks on the pages


It's possible that the heads need to be replaced. That's one disadvantage to the printers that don't have the heads contained within the cartridge.
