Question about Canon MultiPASS MP700 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I print anything in colour, areas that should be just cyan have a 50% magenta horizontal banding about 3mm apart. Magenta colours also end up with extra magenta bands. Again 3mm on 3mm off.
I have the same problem. Here's the advice I found somewhere on the internet:
If a jet (nozzle) in your cartridge has gone bad you will see horizontal bands and/or white streaks in your print. Print characteristics may appear incomplete and/or the filled in areas on may not show up.
1) Run some warm water over the print head. This can wash away any ink which might have dried in the cartridge print head. Dry the cartridge with a lint-free cloth before placing back into the printer.
2) Clean the contacts on the cartridge (the copper colored circuitry) and the contacts where the cartridge clips into the printer with water or alcohol. After cleaning, insert and remove the cartridge from the printer a few times to be sure you have a good connection between contacts on the cartridge and the printer.
3) If your print is smeared cleaning the wiper blade may fix the problem. Do this according to your printer manual instructions.
