SOURCE: Printer won't print color only black and white

Reinsert the color cartridge. Give print command for page. Open Preferences in print window. Open the Color tab. Click on Print in Color. (It may have been set for black only.) Try printing.

SOURCE: smeared lines

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

It sounds like your print head my be blocked. On some printers they come with the cartridge, my canon has separate print head that can be replaced.

SOURCE: I keep getting this message

The print head is the carriage that holds the ink cartridges and has tiny nozzles on the bottom that spray the ink on your paper. The nozzles have to be aimed (aligned) either automatically, or in WinXP with the following manual process:

1 Left click on the start button
2 Open "Printers and faxes" on the Start menu.
3 Find your printer on the printer list and right click on it once.
4 Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
5 Click on the "Maintenance" tab at the top of the new window.

A selection page for all sorts of upkeep items is then shown. Manual alignment of the print head is one of the choices.

How do I fix Vertical lines on print out. I do not have solid colour when I print in colour instead I have lines. I have cleaned the print head, tried to align print head numerous times and replaced black...


Open "properties", on the bottom you will see "printing preferences". Try changing the print quality to "high" or adjust the color intensity manually- there are 2 options, "auto" and "manual". Check the "manual" and adjust it.

This sounds as though the actual print head has failed or is close to failing. You can get new print-heads form you local Canon service centre - they are not exactly cheap - but cheaper than a new printer.

Photos print with a faint 'pinstripe' effect


that could be head alignment (most noticible on low quality settings .. there is a procedure for aligning the heads ... or it could be clogged nozzles
to check these things start to print something
then select preferences .. then maintainence then
you have a choice .. nozzle check should be done first .. if all nozzles are working then go to "head alignment" and follow instructions there .. if some nozzles are not working then run the "cleaning" utility . sometimes it needs to do that several times .. if you cant get all nozzles working then you can try "deep cleaning" that uses lots of ink so you dont want to do that often ... if that doesnt work then you need new heads .. the heads in many pixma printers are easily replacable but costly ..
if all the nozzles are working and head alignment was done but you still have faint lines then try "high quality mode" .. in that mode you should not see any lines ..

VERTICAL PRINT LINES


Check the front paper exit rollers for fit and alignment also the paper deck guides close to the planten area, if the printer is dropping print vertically down one side of the page, this can be caused by debris or anything that lifts the caridge assy the slightest bit, also check the print head seating and ribbin cable for proper alignment
