Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer
I bought an iP4300 Canon printer, it worked fine for a while, but then I left it without printing for about two weeks when I turn it on again to do printing, it started giving me horizontal lines on the pictures. I did the alignment procedure, the deep cleaning procedure, all of the tests printed great. The tests show the printer to have no problems, but when I print, the problem is quite obvious.
I printed from the computer, I printed directly from the camera, same thing. This problem happened to me once before with the same model printer. I just can not let the printer sleep for a few days, for when you wake it up again to do some printing, the printing is never the same, no matter what I do.
To solve this problema, proceed with LF correction procedure, which is well documented on Canon IP4300 simplified service manual (it can be found at Emule network). This procedure prints some patterns and the user has to choose the best among them. One of them will probably enough to compensate (or, at least, to minimize the problem to the point that naked eyes can't observe it) the line feeding error which causes dark horizontal lines along the printer lifetime (probably because of feed roller wearing).
