Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

White lines through the page

When I print something off the computer, the printed page has white lines going horizontally through it. When copying on the printer some lines are just lightly faded. I deep cleaned the printer and it was gone for a couple of days. Now it shows up again even though I have it set on high quality printing (it shows up on normal, too). Even if my ink takes were low in the past, this never happened before.
Hope this doesn't mean the end of my printer - only had it for 2 years or so.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

There are two reasons for this problem you r facing.
1)the cartridges are getting over so replace it the printer will print perfect.
2)the printhead in which the carteidges are fitted is blocked internally and is not able to supply the appropriate ink for printing which requires to print.
for this you have to remove the printhead from the printer which is very easy you just have to lift the lock on the head and it can be removed.after removing clean the base of the head with tissue and isoprophyll and then reinsert the head should print again after 2-3 cleanings and deep cleanings.

I just changed my laser cartridge and with the new one in my printed pages have two or three horizontal lines on them

does these lines occures when you print something out or just when you copy something?

If it occures when you print out also check the new toner crg. drum ( green roller ) and if the lines are on its surface change the crg. because that means that the cleaning blade is faulty.

If there isnt lines on drum, and printed image is OK, clean the copy glass ( both platten and adf glass ).

Worst case scenarion is faulty fixing film.

Hope that helped!

Hello - my Brother DCP 330C printer is printing horizontal faded lines on both color and Black and white copies. I have changed the toner in all areas but still no change. Could the problem be with the...

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

This seems to be a common theme. I just posted a response to someone here with a similar problem. has a web page that can help you go through a series of diagnostic tasks designed to track down this problem:

Streaks or Lines in the Printed Page

There's also a help page that talks about lines on pages when you use the Copy feature. Not quite your problem, but it may help:

Sounds like you may need to clean the optics. Open up the area where you insert the original to copy, there you will find a small long glass that needs to be cleaned, I would suspect there is white out on this causing you lines or it may just be dirty.

Hope this helps...
