Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer
At one point, I thought this printer printed PERFECTLY. Recently, it has not been printing the same. I ran all the maintenance tests for cleaning and alignment. When I print a photo, you can see the printing lines and the colors are muted. There is also a very slight uneven border when printing borderless. Is my printer done? If so, any suggestions. I am an avid scrapbooker and have a dSlr camera, so like when I do print from home, that it is a quality print.

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:
1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink
The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.
The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.
For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..
Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.
BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

There is probably a "gutter" setting that is trying to give you a border of sorts. Check the advanced print settings and look for something like gutter and turn it off.
