Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

Hello. My Canon iP400 will print black perfectly but will only print horizontal lines with a space in between with all the colors. I have tried going through the maintenance and doing the clean and deep clean option but my printer still prints the lines. I have also tried the print head alignment option and nothing has changed. This all occurred after my printer tried loading a paper but it did not enter straight and caused a paper jam.

Why is my Canon Pixma 4820 suddenly leaving lighter lines through color pictures.


Worn print head. And for what they charge for a stinking print head you can get a new printer for less with a warranty to boot!

Inkjet printers do not like being left unused for long periods.
Some of the color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Canon pixma ip500 horizontal bands of non-printing areas


Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

While printing photos my printer has white vertical lines


Sounds like you need to re-align the print cartridge . The reason the text comes out ok is probably because it is only using the black cartridge for text. The color cartridge is the one that's out of alignment. You may have some sort of Cannon utility running in the task bar that will allow you to easily allign the print cartridges. If not, go to the main "Printers and Faxes" window, RIGHT-click on the printer and select "Properties". You should be able to find a button in the properties that's labeled something like re-align print cartridges. It will print out a series of test pages and ask you to select the set of lines that looks the straightest and type it in. It's a good idea to do this every time you replace a cartrige. Hope this helps, If I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines


Hello we have had customers with this problem and this model printer We came upon this type of problem also exhibited the same lining when you did a nozzle check independant of the computer (not attached to computer and just using the internal head check print) This was a cartridge problem and after replacing the cartridge the problem stopped.
