    Do I remove a cartridge (black and blue) and wipe the nozzle on the cartridge?

  • mobell1 May 20, 2009

    I did both suggestions and when I print a page I still get the white horizontal lines in the text. My MP500 has been working perfectly until now.

    I have white horizontal lines in my printed text. I have tried all cleaning maintenance suggestions and none seem to work. It has happened with both black and blue type. I removed each cartridge and they are fine. This machine has worked perfectly and I cannot understand what the problem is. Even though the cartridges seem fine perhaps I should replace them?

  • mobell1 May 20, 2009

    Thank you. All the maintenance checks come out perfectly. I just don't understand why when I print from email or internet browser it doesn't come out correctly. Oh well, I'm too tired to try anything else tonight. Thanks again, Mo

Run a cleaning page through it, from the printer controll pannel in windows

if that fails try running the printer head alignment program

check in your printer manual, you should find instructions on both in there

It's a cartridge issue for me..

the white horizontal line the result of the missing nozzles of the cartridge ..because the nozzles did not jet that's why there's a white horizontal line trough the print-outs..

try to clean the printhead ..

1. wipe the printhead on a wet cloth to remove the clogs that avoid the nozzle to print.
2.run a maintence page..go to your printer panel..and select maintenance..and choose clean printhead.. to clean the nozzles..


thanks for using FIXYA..

    ahh..remove the catridge or the printhead with the mono and color tanks ..

  • Ramel Mayormita May 20, 2009

    try to clean the tab circuit of the carrier or the cartridge holder..maybe the signal that the printer sent to the catridge is lacking because of dirt..

My canon MP145 three-in-one printer cannot print because the coloured ink has finished. How can i continue to print using black ink only?


Hi joyce2020
Some printers do print even if one cartridge is empty.
This is what you have to do. Goto the print setting page. you will find check boxes for Print in Color OR Black& White.
Usually, the color box is checked. When you check the box for color, you can print in black and white as well provided the text is written in B&W. If you check the B&W, the printer will print everything in black including color text and graphics.

Hope this will work for you.
Good Luck

Can i print black and white text only when colour cartridges are empty but black is full on an ip14300?


you can make a selection from the File->Print option of your word processor or whatever package you are using. it is your command that sets the printer to B&W or color. If your Black ink finishes then the printer even if set to color will print black as near black with color inks.

Horizontal white lines through the text


Your ink cartridge (s) is dried up, even some new ones are dried up, even tho' they're sealed.

Some self-tests don't use black.

Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines


Hello we have had customers with this problem and this model printer We came upon this type of problem also exhibited the same lining when you did a nozzle check independant of the computer (not attached to computer and just using the internal head check print) This was a cartridge problem and after replacing the cartridge the problem stopped.
