Unfortunately, one choice Canon made to keep the price low was to eliminate automatic alignment. That means you have to align the print heads manually—an unusual step for all but the least-expensive printers today. Manual alignment involves printing an alignment page, picking the best-looking choices for each of several alignment samples, and then entering the settings in the printer driver.

Printing is not good


Assuming you have ink, you need to clean and/or realign the print heads.
Go to properties on the software for the printer and look for maintenance cleaning and realignment should be in there

There are horizontal lines on the print. Even after realigning the print head it is still coming. What do i do?


if it's an inkjet printer, the print head is surely dirty. try wiping the bottom sides of the print head gently with a dry piece of cloth without touching the actual print nozzles, which can easily be damaged.

HEAD CLEANING DOES NOT FIX GAPS IN NOZZLE CHECK


Head cleaning is for fixing horizontal band. If some point of head cloged, print out will show horizoantal banding. For vertical banding, try using head alignment. Have yo tried printing without high speed (disable high speed option)

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.

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......


Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

My printer is banding how? do I clean it


Within the Epson Printer Suite there is a program for cleaning the heads , realigning them etc If the heads are really dirty you may have to buy a couple of cleaning cartridges and run them on your machine before attempting to print using normal cartridges
