SOURCE: canon pixma mp780 - vertical line on printing

There are a number of issues that cause vertical lines in printing. If you have cleaned all the glass panels and roller,the next primary cause is a blocked printhead but people have success cleaning and refilling cartidges as I do. How old is the cartridge, as they do eventually wear out due to the printhead points wearing out(hold the cartridge to the light and look on the printhead, do the points appear scratched or white dots? This indicates replacement. How much ink is left? When black ink is low but not low enough to show a message, sometimes vertical lines can appear. Try checking ink status, or try refilling ink if you know how. If this issue reoccurs with a new cartridge it more than likely could be the printers printhead and not the cartridge. Cartridges can become clogged if not printed with for a while. Try standing the cartridge on newspaper for a while. Blot it dry and retry it.

SOURCE: Print head remains clogged canon pixma iP 4000

I have successfully managed to clean the print head with isopropyl alcohol by placing a flexible plastic tube over the cartridge seat, filling the tube partially with the alcohol, then blowing very hard through the tube. The alcohol does not appear to harm anything.

Comment:
I've had this printer for over a year now. I have it set up wirelessly connected to my network. The biggest problem I have is that I have 3 computers in the household and sometimes, for whatever reason, this printer will not realize it is done printing from the last job and will continue to think that it is working. So, when you go to print to it from another computer, you get the Another computer is using the printer. Please wait. This will continue until you go and turn the printer off and wait for the insanely long turning off cycle, then turn it back on. <br /><br />Once you do get it working, it gives you great output for both text and photos. I have been doing a lot of scanning old black and white family negatives and printing them, and my family members thought the prints were from a photo lab. <br /><br />Bottom line: if you want excellent output and have a tolerance for quirky connections, you will be OK with this. If, like my wife, you just want it to work like an appliance, and find the locking up infuriating, I would not recommend it.

Comment:
As rated by CU, it produces very nice photo prints. Text quality is also good when set on standard but not so good on fast. It takes it's time to get started when you send it something to print, whirring and clicking for a good minute before anything actually prints. My main complaint is paper handling. I sometimes print mailing labels from sheets. My previous printer, an HP 7560, would accept a sheet with an upward curled front lip. The Canon iP7220 either doesn't accept it or jams up solidly.

Comment:
Tried brochure paper and spent two days trying to get color right. Used glossy and matte photo paper for great print results, mostly. color shifted for no apparent reason. First batch of matte paper worked great, others jammed every 2-5 sheets. Will not pick up matte paper sometimes, gets worse the more I try.

Check for something that should not be inside the printer. Paper or dust or some other thing that could have somehow got inside!

Why did my MX860 start printing every other line? I've changed all the ink and the problem is still present.


Hi!

Unfortunately its the Printhead thats faulty and most likely needs to be replaced!Its a bit expensive and i am sure it will be cheaper buying a new machine than having that one fixed!!

Sorry!!

I have a problem with huge black streaks on my printed documents.


It's the waste ink getting on the exit rollers instead of going where it should. Canon has a mod for that where you remove the print engine clean the rollers and exit and install a mylar shield so it can't happen again. Probably too big a job for you to do at home..messy too.

Printing labels setup on the PXMA MX860


Hello,

You don't need to do anything to set the printer up except to tell it you have heavier stock than normal.

Your answer lies in the program you are using to print labels. Please tell me which program you are using and what other office type programs you have on the computer and I will try to give you a viable solution.
