    I have the same problem. Text is fuzzy with shadow-like lines through letters. I changed printheads and cleaned and realigned printheads. Problem remains. What next?

Canon printer is printing with smudged text, how do I resolve it?

Most Canon printers have a clean print heads function. Search the menus until you find it. This is maintenance you should perform on your printer routinely. Once you do that and it still is smudged, remove the ink cartridges and clean the end of them carefully (you don't want ink to go everywhere). Look where the cartridge(s) connect to the print head. They may be dirty as well and need to be cleaned. Go to the following website and they go into specifics on how to clean your printer:

Canon PIXMA iP4200 not printing PGBK properly - only printing top 50% of PGBK grid on test page.

Man you did some awesome troubleshooting! I don't know, but it sounds like something is physically wrong with internal electronics. I'd call in the big dogs at Canon themselves.

Doesn't sound like your printer hardware. Try printing something other than your text document. If the page comes out clean/perfect then it means your printer is having a problem understanding your text document via print program translation. Otherwise try converting your text to pdf and print a sample page, if it works then again problem with software/printer translation.

How can you clean print heads for the HP C4480 All-In-One? "Best quality photos" prints well, but text has lines and smudge marks. Cleaned spongy material below cartridges but can't clean roller....

just take out the ink cartridge and clean off the bottom of it, that is the print head. you may need to clean under the plastic piece that it sits in. That may have hair or fuzz on it that is dragging across print.
