Question about Canon i850 InkJet Photo Printer
Red streak threw the bottom of picture color blown out and blurry?? need help fast
If streaking is occurring only at the bottom of the page (i.e. the last area to print as the paper is fed beneath the print head), the problem may be due to improper curl of the paper. Many inkjet printers (Canon especially), rely on a slight curl of the paper so that it is "bowed" when it travels beneath the print head.
To see if this is the problem, gently roll a sheet of paper so that the print side is on the outside of the roll. When you place the paper in the feed area, it should have a very slight bow so that the center of the print side is slightly raised off the surface, while the edges are on the surface.
Also, make sure you use only OEM (Canon) cartridges. There is not a single "compatible" cartridge in the world that won't screw up your Canon print head. Take my word for it (and I DON'T work for Canon), you must use only Canon cartridges.
