Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Prior to this event, the printer worked fine, except it was running out of ink. After installing new set of ink cartridges, the MP530 prints out hard copy that is mostly black and white, but with some poorly defined color and repeatable white line stripes between the images on the page. Attempted to clean print head 4 times, but no improvement.
How to fix?
hope this tip can help your problem your printer ink,
try to put your ink cartridges the printing head on top of a cotton with an alcohol in it. 40% it can. for about 5 minutes or less.
after that whip it with dry cotton. and install it again. and do again the cleaning procedure of the printer head.
and also check your printing preferences about print quality.

You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?.

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
