    The ink cartridges I've been using are the ones that were refilled with ink in a nearby store.

    I'll buy a new colored cartridge and hopefully that will help. My pictures often turned out dark when I printed them also. Dolores

    I bought a new cartridge from Staples and put it in and used photo paper and the pictures turned out very clear. I guess it doesn't always pay to get the refilled ink cartridges. I might have saved some money but wasted alot of paper.

    Thank you for your help. I'm glad I don't have to buy a new printer. Dolores

Try to replace a new cartridge for your printer...I think your printer is working properly...

if the phenomenon still exist..

its better to flash it with a new firmware.
maybe the signal that the printer sent to the cartridge is not enough...^_^

That is best bet since it appears that your print head is fubar and Canon charges a fortune for them. Cheaper to get a new printer with warranty.

Picture becomes fuzzy and lined, clears with a sharp rap on the top of case.


probably a bad connection on the circuit board inside that heats up over time. the tap on the top probably moves the connection just enough To make it good for short time.

It prints vertical lines where the text is.


check your drum unit. The toner cartridge mounts into the drum which can be permanently charged causing a constant streak to occur.

Solution:
Remove the toner and drum unit. Clean them off with a non-fuzzy non-rough cloth or paper towel. Pay particular attention to where the streaks are in relation to the toner cartridge and drum. If you clean it off and you still get streaks check whether they transfer from the toner or just from the drum.

There may be a way to discharge the drum, otherwise you need a new drum.
