Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing lines Our printer started printing evenly distributed, horizontal lines across all of our documents. At the same time, we were running out of ink so we replaced all the color cartridges just in case the low ink was also causing the lines. We replaced all color cartridges and are still getting the evenly distributed, horizontal lines. Is this a fuser issue or is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

Re: Printing lines

Hi. I've been looking for a solution to this very same problem, but I think that the only way to fix it is to replace the print head. I've spent a few hours now trying to find out if there is something else which could cause this problem, and the only one that applies to me (and to you, if you replaced all of your ink cartridges), is that the print head is no longer working. I found a print head for $50 at , so I'll probably go that route.

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.

I need to know if this is a sudden occurence or has it happened before. Is cartridge new or refilled or older, and did it print right until now. Also need to know if you have made any recent system changes and if you run anti virus and spyware.
