Try running one or two ink cartridge cleaning cycles to help clear the air out of the ink nozzles. New cartridges aren't always perfect to begin with. After doing the cleaning try running a test print from your printer setup or installation properties window. If this print is good try printing another picture on a plain piece of paper rather than photo paper. If it prints OK then use your photo paper. I say this so you don't waste your photo paper. If you get lines in the test print, return the cartridge and see if the place you bought it from will exchange it for another one. If they will not exchange it try to get them to make the cartridge print correctly. You may have to bring your printer to them. This is the best advice I can give you, I hope it helps.
Definitely a partial clog. Remove your ink cartridge and take it to your microwave. DO NOT PUT IT IN THE MICROWAVE. Fold up some paper towels and apply enough water to the towels to get wet and damp but not dripping. Heat the wet towels in the microwave to get very hot (about 30 seconds). Now, place the cartridge on the steamy hot paper towel and let the steam and hot water dissolve the dried ink. After the towel cools drag the ink contacts across the wet paper towel and look for a smooth and even line of ink. One smooth wide line for black and three smooth lines for the color . Try the drag test on some dry paper towels for the final test. If necessary repeat the whole process again. For stubborn and very old cartridges let set on the wet towel for several hours and recheck. Good Luck.
Just to clarify, you are stating INK? The Canon PC941 uses an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Toner Cartridge. Canon toner cartridges for PC941
printer are supplies produced by the same manufacturer that makes given
piece of equipment. Toner cartridges produced by Canon are called OEM. Remove the toner from the machine and then use cotton swabs and alcohol to clean around the roller wheels of all drawer areas. Be sure to unplug the equipment before attempting to clean the wheels.
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.
