Cleaning usually doesn't help that printhead much. A new one QY6-0049-000 is around $40.00. You remove by lifting the gray handle on the left after removing all the inks.

White lines on photo


Take the cartridges out, then take the print-head out and run it under warm water for a few minutes. You could stand it in a saucer of warm water if you like - just the nozzles . Dry it thoroughly - use kitchen town and then refit it into the printer. Put the inks back in and then do some test prints.
It might take 2 or 3 goes but it should clear the blocked nozzle(s)
Inkjets like to be used - it keeps the nozzles clear.

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.

Canon iP4000 prints lines


It sounds like there is a blockage or junk sitting over one or more jets in the printhead.
