Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Whenever I print color photos, there are white bands, about 1/4 inch wide and about 1/16 of an inch apart, covering the entire print. I get the same results regardless of the quality of paper. This condition existed even when the printer was new. Is there an adjustment I can make, or am I stuck with this situation?
Perform Print Head Alignment
perform a Print Head Alignment directly from the machine. If diagrams
or ruled lines are misaligned, print head alignment is required. The
print head alignment can be performed automatically or manually. If the automatic print head alignment does not work, adjust the print head manually.
