Be sure the glass is clean.
If the Canon is anything like HP and you are using the ADF there is a thin strip of glass on the left end of the flatbed. This is where scans are read when using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder)
All it takes is a tiny speck on the glass to cause lines on the copy. Clean it by spraying a glass cleaner on a soft towel and wiping

Printer only prints top and bottom lines on page


All web based documents, especially bank statements, require a COLOUR cartridge, so if your cartridge is empty, it will print blank pages. Although the font may look black... it is normally NOT. Altentaively you may also need to instruct your printer to print "background images".

Black line on copy and fax functions


Clean the paper path for the scan/fax portion. The original goes in and as the document is "read" a spot of dirt is causing the black line down the page because it is picked up in the copy area.

My printer is not printing all the horizontal lines


First try to copy and if copy works fine, means the hardware is fine and issue with the driver.
Do right-click on printer icon and select delete.
Once deleted, run the installation disc and click on add a device, follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Open printers and faxes window and then do right click on printer icon and select properties, click on print test page.
Check if it prints fine, if yes try to print from other application. I hope it will work.

I have a thin line all the way down the page when making a copy.


Check scanner glass and clean. Further test - Scan from the computer. If the line is still present, the scanner CCD is failing and requires service as there is no user servicable part inside.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes


Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
