Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
Printer will only print a yellow line about 2 inches from top of paper--I tried nozzle check(all colored lines print) and cleaning, but neither worked. I have a Canon printer--model PIXMA IP6600D
Errors : If printer does not start/ Ink does not come out/Printing is blurred/ Colors are wrong/white streaks
Cause 1 : Ink tank is empty.
Action : If the ink tank lamp is flashing, ink is empty. Replace the ink tank and close the cover. IF print is not finished yet, just press the OK button on the printer to continue printing in the "no ink" state. Replace the ink tank as soon as possible after printing finishes.
Continue to print in the "no ink" state may cause damage to the printer. Replace the ink tank.
Note : If multiple ink tanks are flashing red, check how fast they flash.Fast flashing (about at one second interval) indicates that the ink is empty. Slow flashing (about at three seconds intervals) indicates ink is low.
Cause 2: Ink tank is not installed in the correct position.
Action : If an ink tank lamp is flashing even though ink remains in that ink tank, it is inserted in the wrong position. Make sure that the correct ink tank color is inserted in each position.
Cause 3 : Incorrect media type.
Action : On the operation panel, confirm that the media type selected matches the paper loaded.
Cause 4 : Print head nozzles clogged or shifted.
Action : Print the nozzle check for unevem ink output.
When a specific color is missing from the nozzle check the pattern, clean the print head.
*If the ink supply is uneven, perform Print Head Cleaning.
* If straight lines are shifted Align the Print Head-Auto head align.
If rules lines are misaligned or printout is unsatisfactory, adjust the print head position.
Print head alignment is performed automatically.However, you can align the print head manually if the results of automatic print head alignment are not satisfactory.
Note : *Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed from the cassette. Always load the paper in the auto sheet feeder.
*Ensure that the inner cover is closed.
1) With the printer on, load a sheet of A4/Letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder.
2) Align the print head automatically.
a) Press the Menu button.
b) Use right and left arrow buttons to select Maintenance/settings and then press OK button.
c) Use right and left arrow buttons to select Maintenace and then press OK button.
d) Use up and Down arrow buttons to select Auto head align and then press the OK button.
The confirmation screen is displayed.
e) Use up and down arrow buttons to select Yes and then press the OK button.
A pattern is printed and the print head is automatically aligned.
Cause 5 : Paper loaded wrong side up.
Action : Check the print side of the paper.
Note : Follow the instructions packaged with your speciality media for loading and handling.
Cause 6 : Ink tank is not fully inserted.
Action : Ope the cover, paper output tray and inner cover, and then press the Push mark on the ink tank whose lamp is off until the ink tank clicks into place. Once the ink tank is installed properly its lamp will light red.
Ensure that all the orange tape has been peeled off. If there remains a part of the orange tape, remove it thoroughly.
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.

It's usually caused by the "afterglow" of the CRT fogging the paper while it sits in front of the tube for cutting. It could also be a manisfestation of the "rainbow" mark that crops up once in a while, which is usually a reflection .
Change the "insertion delay”option in the magazine setup section. try 10 seconds. hope it will work.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
