Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?


The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.

Missing text lines


This is caused by the black part of the printhead getting clogged and it's very difficult to shift this.

My personal solution has been to switch to a dyebase ink instead of of the pigment ink that HP provide... but as a more practical matter it seems that this sort of clogging happens when the printer is located in a dry, overly warm environment where things like air conditioning, radiators, etc... dry out the air.

If possible, relocate the printer to a more ventilated, cooler area.

Running the cleaning routines should clear the blockage after a couple of times but it may well return so this is by no means a full fix.

Bad print outs.


You could try putting your printer through a few cleans and calibrations. If this doesnt work try changing the ink cartridges, as one may have a damaged printhead

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Red lines keep printing through all text of my print-outs. I've tried everything suggested in the manual such as cleaning and alignment an I still get red lines wherever there is text.


There is a spong that catches the ink when doing a head clean. I took some Q tips t soak up some of the ink from within the spong. Try to clean as much as you can from the spong. Even use a soft rag iif possible. You also may have to change the brand of ink that is being used.
