I am having trouble with my printer printing black lines across the bottom of the page whenever I print. I have tried to clean parts of the printer but to no avail. Is there a specific place to clean or do I need a new printer??
in black ink, first 5-10 lines are good & readable. then line quality varies for rest of page. have tried cleaning, and deep cleaning. clears up for a few pages, then back to good first few lines, then unreadible with horizontal lines and blanks. complained to ink supplier who said get a new printer. waiting for real canon inks to see if problem is cheap ink. rhn

1. Turn off printer 2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button. 3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go. 4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go. 5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking. 6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times. 7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more. 8. Your printer should respond as normal..

hi i am a certified Canon repair tech on this model. when the waste message comes up this means that the waste absorbers in the bottom of the machine need to be replaced. just clearing the error and not replacing them will cause the waste ink to over fill and backup into the machines printing area smugging the print. there are Canon repair centers privately owned that can replace the waste absorbers and clean the machine. the average cannot take this machine apart into peices to clean it. The waste absorbers are fairly cheap but the labor to do this will vary from shop to shop. hope this helps clarify the problem.
