SOURCE: When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.

Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.

  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.

SOURCE: My laser printer is leaving a big streak mark and i think its the roller how do i clean it?

I concur with antiochpc its the fuser. The fuser heats up the particles found in the toner that melt onto the page to make printing possible.

SOURCE: Printer Canon i850 7 red flashes

Inkjet printheads are electrical devices and subject to failure. The error report may be indicating the failure of one or more of the delicate resistive elements in the head. Unfortunately, the electrical drivers failing would probably give the same indication. BTW, alcohol isn't the best choice for cleaning clogged printheads; window cleaner dissolves ink much better.

SOURCE: how do I clean the heads on my Canon i450 printer

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Canon mf8300


have you checked the paper in the printer to see if it is curled sometimes if the paper is curled or if the paper is too thick it can make the printer smudge the print-out
if that fails could mean your printer heads need cleaning for this you will need to find your printers documents and find out the best way to do this make sure the printer has no power connected when you are doing something like this
hope this is helpfull

Printing streak


If the line is vertical on the print this is most likly not a print head issue. I would be more inclined to think there is a physical contaminant that might be "scoring" the print or scraping of the ink as the photo leaves the printer. Hold the print at an angle and shine a light on it to see if there is a difference to the surface of the print. Investigate the printer for obstructions and contamination. Pay particular attention to the feed mechanism.

We have an IPF700 that suddenly started printing in streaks


go to menu,test print,nozzle check and see if the 6 grid patern is ok.
If not, perform head cleaning B twice or more.
If the result remains the same then you have to replace the print head.
But before try to upgrade the firmware to the latest version and try to raise one or two steps the print quallity (from draft(600dpi) to Standart(600dpi) ) and let us know the results.

What causes the toner to leave color streaks on the paper? It's leaving red streaks and I've replaced the magenta & black developers....but could it be the PCU causing the problem?


The developers almost never streak. I would be looking at your PCUs. Developers have a tendency to leave voids and dust the paper. PCUs tend to streak as the cleaning blade and charge roller wears out.

Our Cannon MP 500 is leaving a 1/4" wide black streak on the back side of copies. I have cleaned off the cartridge heads, replaced the ink tanks cleaned the heads to no avail. What is the problem and how...


HI Foster,
The problem is not with the print head. Print a blank page and if you are still getting the streak. Something is probably trapped in the printer or the rollers are dirty.

Red streak poor color


If streaking is occurring only at the bottom of the page (i.e. the last area to print as the paper is fed beneath the print head), the problem may be due to improper curl of the paper. Many inkjet printers (Canon especially), rely on a slight curl of the paper so that it is "bowed" when it travels beneath the print head.

To see if this is the problem, gently roll a sheet of paper so that the print side is on the outside of the roll. When you place the paper in the feed area, it should have a very slight bow so that the center of the print side is slightly raised off the surface, while the edges are on the surface.

Also, make sure you use only OEM (Canon) cartridges. There is not a single "compatible" cartridge in the world that won't screw up your Canon print head. Take my word for it (and I DON'T work for Canon), you must use only Canon cartridges.

My Canon i960 printer is printing red streaks on the pages


It's possible that the heads need to be replaced. That's one disadvantage to the printers that don't have the heads contained within the cartridge.
