Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photo's print with lines through them

When I print a photo there are two tone horizontal lines that run through the picture.

When I do a nozzle check, the 3eBK looks fine, but then all the rest of the colors are half solid dark and half solid light of their color. The wording is half black and half pinky/red.

    When I print photos there are bars running through the photo or greeting card picture. Regular black printings are pinkish. We have run nozzle cleanings etc. and nothing has changed but continually has become pale to the point of near disappearance and is pinkish in color. Color printing is pale and pinkish with bars through photos.

Black banding 1280


Do nozzle check. Is it perfect? If only one or two nozzle missing, it must be "good result" in photo quality mode printing. But if, there is too much nozzle missing, result is no good. If nozzle check is perfect, but the result is not satisfied, check the PF scale and PF scale sensor.

Lines in photo


If you have white horizontal lines in your prints then most likely you have some blocked print head nozzles.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Lots of tiny white horizontal lines on the printed picture.


Run a nozzle check. If there are gaps do head cleaning. When printing pictures it best to set the setting to best photo to get good print outs.
Goodluck.

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......


Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

Possible printhead or driver issue.
Are you using Adobe photoshop? Please try to print also using a different application to isolate the issue.
Make sure that you are using correct epson cartridges.
Please print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing colors or missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver.
If the nozzle check pattern printed out successfully, please trash and re-install the drivers. The driver is available on epson.com

I had this trouble, went through cleaning & realignment, then various print options. What i found was that dark colours had faint dark horizontal lines 5mm apart when printing on Photo in the epson driver. Changing it to Best Photo solved it.
