The Canon Pixma inkjet printer is an all-in-one printer, scanner and copier capable of printing high-resolution photos. One handy feature is a slot for a memory card so you print photographs directly from your camera. It can also print completely without any border for full-sheet photos. Printing photos and other high-fidelity documents uses up ink more quickly, and you will probably need to replace at least one of your cartridges every three to six months, a process that should take you about three to five minutes.
1.urn on the printer and check the LCD screen for an indication of which ink cartridges are low. Note that recycled ink cartridges sometimes read "Ink low" even when they still have ink, so print a test page if you're not sure.
2.Expose the ink tray by lifting the entire LCD control panel, which is attached to the underside of the copier tray.
3.Pull out the used ink cartridge by pulling straight up from the print head, and dispose of them safely and carefully by putting them in a sealed bag.
4.Remove gently any packaging from the new ink, after giving it a few shakes. Pull off the protective tab on the cartridge, insert the new cartridge into the print head and push down until you feel a click. Close the printer lid and let the printer reset the ink tray.
5.Print a test page to make sure the new ink works. If it doesn't, you may have forgotten to remove the protective tab under the cartridge.
alot of the time if you scan something it will streach the image because of the scanner resolution. check you setting on the printer. you might need to change the settings to stop it from doing that to make he image more clear. if that doesn't work than also some printers are just like that when you scan something. it will also make one page turn into two pages. that may just be the way the printer is.
If the printer resolution is set very high, this can slow printing. So can high resolution input. Is the printer showing any sign of memory loss? Try a test print--it should come out quickly. Good luck!
Check that you haven't increased the printing resolution beyond what is sufficient to print your document.
High resolution vs. draft output will cause you to use a lot more ink and will take at least twice as long to print a page because it is likely printing each line at least twice. This is how full color (photo quality) images are printed. If you don't need a photo to be dark, then set your printer to "Standard" or "Draft" settings.
Select the Page Layout tab, in the page setup group, select margins, The at the bottom, select custom margins. on the margins tab about 1/2 way down, select the down arrow next to Multipl epages and select 2 pages per sheet. Print a couple test pages and see if that is the setup you need.
Considering that the problem lessens further down the page, you most likely have a printhead that may be leaking (oozing) ink.
Once the surplus is wiped off on your paper, the ink flow is OK and the leak too slow to continue making the unwanted lines..
Try printing blank documents, you will probably see the lines with or without text printing.
I'm not certain how the printhead can be removed for inspection on that machine but it may need replacement.
This printer prints at a really slow 1.4 PPM, and
if it's doing that, it means that the buffer in the printer is full and it must print what it has in memory before recieving more of the page, if it's a really high resolution picture, it can take forever to print. This isn't a defect at all, it's just something that you can't fix that makes this printer useless for an office. I have this printer too, I usually just go do something while it does its thing...
