Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Many aftermarket companies have inferior parts in their ink cartridges. Stay with the genuine cartridge for yours. To save money refill your own. They can be refilled at a low cost and the cartrige will reload about 7 to 9 times before it no longer any good to use any more

Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?


The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.

Did it come with any software? My printer wouldn't print when I tried using the scan button. If it came with software you could try scanning using that. If you dont have it it's probably available for download on canon's website

Menu letters in tool button


The letters refer to the following:

A = Prints the nozzle check pattern
H = Cleans the fine cartridge
Y = Fine cartridge deep cleaning
P = prints head alignment sheet
L = prints the fine cartridge alignment sheet
U = Scans and then aligns the sheet you printed under the L option

All in the user manual in Chapter 9. Download a copy here:
