Question about Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet Photo Printer
Hi, my problem must be rare. Just now I tried printing a document but when the printer started to roll, my headphone cable went in the printer and got rolled into the printer. My headphone was on top of my printer.
Now I realized that thereafter if I print black and white, I see white lines of 3mm thick every 3cm row (3mm of content that supposed to be get printed is gone every 3 cm). But if I print color it looked fine.
What can I do now to solve it? Please help...
Thank you in advance.
Unfortunate, the cable catched in the printer affected the printhead part where black ink is coming out. Maybe some plastic got on the nozzles (from the cable), if you have some technical skills you can dismount the printhead (where the cartridges are put in) and check the downside of it, where the nozzles are, clean them with warm water and a soft tissue. Not with paper tissue.
If that doesn't help, it means that soft plastic-parts are clogging the nozzles, it could be fixed with steam blowed under pressure trough the nozzles, but it requires special equipment you probabily dont have. A printer service in your area could have such equipment, try and clean the printhead with their help.
This is valable if the nozzles arent damaged (scratched), if this is the case then Canon gotcha, because a printhead is very expensive, kind of the price of a whole new printer.
Let me know if it helped you on mail email@example.com. Rate the answer please.
And sorry if my english is not the best.

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please try this approach:
From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page and aligning your print cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
