Canon MP830 printing with interlacing shades of black

My printer has recently decided to print with 1cm thick interlacing shades of the document across the page.
Does anyone know how to fix this?? I tried printing in colour and there seems to be no problem, but when i try to print/ photocopy in black then the problem occurs.

If anyone can help, it would greatly be appreciated.
(i've done the nozzle cleaning and the deep cleaning already but the problem still persists)

Cheers

    My issue first started with the blue not printing. I replaced the printhead with a new one from Canon and the blue started working just fine. But now, when I print in black it like smears the black ink about every inch. I've done both cleanings several times....

Your printer cartridge or head unit ink channel (some of color or black ink channel) constipated, you may try:
1) if your ink cartridge is not new, take out the cartridge put the bottom surface touch cleaner liquid(special for ink printer) or water for 1 hr (you can see ink spread water), then set back and test. refill enough ink maybe necessary.
2) still trouble, you need clean print head ink channel to do same thing above, if your print head is separated from the cartridge.

    you may try following if solution #1 tough to do

    you may try this comment if solution #1 tough

    1) do clean nozzle cycle (do more times) until print normal

    2) clean the color ink cartridge wicks using soft paper, still not fixed go next

    3) clean print head nozzle area, power on and open top cover,the cartridge moving away the parking lot and then pull out power lead, and put a soft paper with a little solvent (making it quite damp, but not totally soaked)
    on the parking lot (see the pump cap area with spongy pad covered in ink and match the lot size same), manually moving the carriage (slow and very careful) to the parking lot ( the paper will raise upto print head) to stay 10 minutes then gentlely

    moving away the parking lot, you may look what color down to the paper, do same thing untill to see three color and black appear on the damped paper.

Canon Pixma 3600 I want black & white printing only for documents Question: How do i turn off the colour cartridges for black & white printing only?


The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.

  1. Open the presentation you want to print.
  2. Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
  3. Select the option Print.
  4. The Print dialog will appear.
example:
sayurisan20_3.jpg 5.In the Color/Grayscale section, choose the Grayscale option to print in black, white, and shades of gray. 6.Choose the Pure Black and White option to print in black and white only. 7.Click on the OK button.

Heavy black stripe on back side of every printed page


This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

Thankyou

REPLACED PRINT CARTRIDGE NOW STATES THE TYPE OF PRINT HEAD IS INCORRECT.


Canon support suggests that perhaps your print head needs to be reseated. This would be too complicated to explain, plus the documentation at Canon support has pictures to help you perform this task.

You must be willing to use the "Search" feature in order to view this solution. Type in the question:

My MP830 leaves white horizontal bands when printing black & white documents. Color printing seems fine. Pattern 'F' is missing on the print alignment page.


You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

Printing problem with Pixma MP500


It sounds like the black tank/printhead is leaking. If it is, it'll be empty soon. New tank will solve that problem.
