Question about Canon i850 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Alternating light and dark lines

Hello, we have a relatively new printer. Just recently it began printing pages of alternating light and dark horizontal lines through every page. Can you help me figure out what is the problem? I recently purchased all new cartridges, from Canon, but this did not help the problem.

Why does every other line of print have the top half of the print cut off?


The print head prints two lines of text/image at one time. If there is a partial print of alternating lines, you probably have a partially clogged print head. Print a test page to see what you get, and perform head cleaning process if needed.

The light and dark banding going horizontally accross the page is usually caused by the drum unit. This is the smaller of the 2 cartridges and it sits just to the right of where the toner sits. If you have a spare drum unit, replace it. This should resolve the problem. The Toner cartridge can also caus this but if you have tried 2 DIFFERENT units with the same banding then it must not be the toner.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Hi! You may want to try head cleaning to resolve the blurry prints. The smudge may be caused by a full waste ink pad. Try to replace the wastepad and it may resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Stylus printing striped alternating shades of yellow and green of image


Possible printhead issue.
Please reseat the black cartridge. Let the printer charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing lines or missing colors on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver. 3 consecutive cleaning cycle is recommended. Compare the nozzle pattern over the last printout. If you see any improvement, you can clean the head numerous times until you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.

Is there something wrong with my Canon i550 printer head?


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
