Remove your ink cartridges and blot on a damp paper towel, then blot on a dry part of the towel, if you don't see a solid line on the dry one blot some more on the wet one. You just need to clean the cartridge surface.

How to solve streaks in printout

If you have tried running the "eliminate light stripes" process in the troubleshoot print quality without success, you may want to look at the print quality sheet and do "jet substitution" on the ink nozzle numbers that aren't printing out. That will slightly slow down the printing, but will eliminate white streaks down your prints.

My printer was working fine, then it just started printing as if the ink was empty. I changed the ink cartridges and it will not print in black at all and the quality when it does print is terrible...lines...

since you already you did the correct troubleshooting still did not solve the problem. It means the printhead nozzle of your printhead needs of replace you need to call kodak toll free 1 800 421 6699 ext 05 and have your printhead replacement

Just bought CANON #30 cartridge. print quality terrible

sometimes cartridges are bad brand new right out of the box, if you pull out the cartridge and flip it over there is a spring loaded door you can open to see the drum. If you see streaks or a white powder haze on it, take it back to where you bought it and exchange it.

Poor registration on Xante CL30 HSE

Make sure the drums are properly seated in their cradels, and if posible, avoid designing with white small text in heavy solid areas that are made up of process colours. For reverse type in a black background, use spot color black rather than rich black. Other than than printing on a not as heavy card, that is about all you can do.

Blue lines all over the printing

Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
