    Hi



    Are you using original cartridges? Look-alike ones have a nasty habit of cross contamination and making a mess of the print head unit. If the machine is over 2 years old then I'd be putting a new one on my pressie list.

You will need to replace the cyan cartridge and do a print head clean. You can clean the head through the menu on your control console on the printer. In your control console, you will also find a thing called a nozzle check. If you print this out you will find that there are missing lines in your cyan. A printhead clean should fix this.

Why is there a clear horizontal line within the printed line?


The print-head is like a paint-brush, in that it prints a "band" as it goes across the page.

In your case, some of the ink-jets are CLOGGED, and thus are not shooting ink as the print-head moves HORIZONTALLY across the page.

Run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles", to try to unclog those ink-jets.

When we print a coloured picture, dark colours are orangy red. Can we adjust anything to solve this problem?


If there are no issues with the head it is possible to correct the tint inthe printer. Open printer properties and select the tint settings.
make a test print after you have set and see if there is any change.
If no there can be issues with the head or the ink colours.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

Epson r300 - banding problems on print out


Nozzle check is fine? I am not sure. Check again. There is transverse and vertical lines. Is it perfect? Turn off printer, move head to center, put wet tissue with hot water at head cleaning mech. (pad). move head to parking position, wait for 15 minutes, repeat for 3 times. Check nozzle.

White line across printed page


Hi Alms, Is there any chance you can post a scan of one of your faulty pages. This would help to assess the fault. If you print several pages, does the image move further and further down the page with each copy? Is the white band repeated down the page? If so measure the distance between each band - this will help identify the faulty component.
