Color printout has shaded lines; rather than blue background, it prints blue striped background


It sounds like your blue ink may be running out.
If ink is full then try to remove an ink cartridge and putting it back, then run through the steps of printing the test page. It may be just that the pages are printing unaligned.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Horizontal lines in pictures


If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.

Canon Lines in picture and colored word doc


you should check whether the color ink is out or not. If so replace it with a new one. Otherwise just cleaning the print head will solve your problem. To clean the head Go to control panel > open printers and faxes > right click printer icon > Click properties > Find the option "Clean print head" or somthing sismilar. Use it and your problem could be solved. Note: Some printers have seperate software utilities to clean the print head.

Canon i850-alignment


Moski, When trying to align the printer you get a sheet of numbered lines. You want to choose the center most selection that your eyes see as straight lines. Whether they are horizontal or vertical it wants you to tell it which lines look the straightest. From there it will set itself up for proper printing. Tim
