Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Horizontal bands I've cleaned and cleaned and tried every print configuration, but my prints have tiny horizontal bands in the solid color. They're tiny a mm or so. but very noticiable. I was selling prints of comics and suddenly I can't get the printer to print anymore! I'm thinking about getting a new printer should I get the same one or move to a different one? thanks! Heather

Is the band are white or black ????

If white, you might have a bad cartridge : replace it.

If black, you will need to clean your printhead and sometime under the carriage there's accumulation of ink....

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

My MP830 leaves white horizontal bands when printing black & white documents. Color printing seems fine. Pattern 'F' is missing on the print alignment page.


You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Xerox 7700 intermittant banding on a diagonal black only


You most likely have a bad black developer housing.
You can try removing the waste bottle and using that bla\ck stick inside the cover to clean the laser ****.
But it sounds like the developer housing has failed.

I would try cleaning the lasers with the brush inside the door. If that fails, you might try looking at the developers.

MP700 Magenta horizontal stripes


I have the same problem. Here's the advice I found somewhere on the internet:

If a jet (nozzle) in your cartridge has gone bad you will see horizontal bands and/or white streaks in your print. Print characteristics may appear incomplete and/or the filled in areas on may not show up.
1) Run some warm water over the print head. This can wash away any ink which might have dried in the cartridge print head. Dry the cartridge with a lint-free cloth before placing back into the printer.

2) Clean the contacts on the cartridge (the copper colored circuitry) and the contacts where the cartridge clips into the printer with water or alcohol. After cleaning, insert and remove the cartridge from the printer a few times to be sure you have a good connection between contacts on the cartridge and the printer.

3) If your print is smeared cleaning the wiper blade may fix the problem. Do this according to your printer manual instructions.
