There are no "print heads" in this machine. Whomever told you that was wrong. If you are getting fuzzy horizontal bands across the prints then this is coming from the drum unit. I have seen this so many times it is not funny. Just order a new drum unit. Take your existing toner cartridge out of the old drum unit and install it in the new one and you are all fixed.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

How do I align heads on my Canon MG2200


Step 1 Ensure the printer and computer are turned on and connected.
Step 2 Locate the printer utility program by clicking on the printer's desktop icon if present. If it is not, click Start and type the printer make or model into the search box. When the printer utility program is displayed, click the program name to open the utility dialog box.
Step 3 Locate the "Maintenance" tab at the top of the printer dialog box and click to view contents. If the tab cannot be found, the maintenance screen can be accessed by clicking on various buttons (Advanced, Tools or Properties) and subsequently searching the dialog boxes to locate the maintenance button or tab.
Step 4 Click "Align Print Heads" or a similarly-phrased button.
Step 5 Click "Print Alignment Page" to yield a test page printed with a numbered series of vertical bars in various colors. Click "OK" or "Finished" to open the next instructional dialog box.
Step 6 Inspect the page, choosing bars from each color group with the sharpest image, and enter the corresponding numbers into the text fields for each color. Click "OK" or "Finished" to begin the automated alignment procedure. The printer adjusts cartridges based on the numbers you've entered. When the process is completed, you may click "Finish" to close the window and process, or print a test page featuring detailed shapes and lines of varying colors to further inspect. Click "Finish" to exit or "Repeat Alignment" to further adjust cartridges.

Manteinance program run automatically every time i try to print something


Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.

Horizontal white lines


Go to the maintenance link for your printer (in properties) and clean your nozzles. It could be this, bad or low ink or needs alignment.

VERTICAL PRINT LINES


Check the front paper exit rollers for fit and alignment also the paper deck guides close to the planten area, if the printer is dropping print vertically down one side of the page, this can be caused by debris or anything that lifts the caridge assy the slightest bit, also check the print head seating and ribbin cable for proper alignment
